Trump is at his New Jersey golf course, ostensibly relaxing but probably stewing.Nobody I know of – surely not even Trump – seriously believes there is a prayer of a Republican "Red Wave" in the midterm election.Republican Troy Balderson led Democrat Danny O'Connor by a little more than 1,500 votes, with several thousand provisional ballots yet to be counted.Trump won it in 2016 by 11 points.Trump, for nervous GOP candidates, is the classic double-edged sword: His overwhelming popularity among his base does boost Republican enthusiasm to some degree, but it also provokes Democrats and other opponents of Trumpism to turn out in large numbers to vote against the captive and supine GOP.The table is set for Democrats to take the House and at least hold their own in the Senate.Democrats should assume that the president's visit did boost Balderson's vote, at least marginally, and that Trump will do everything imaginable to motivate his base.
The Trump administration

Trump can’t make America white again
Democrats must not defeat themselves, again
