HEILEMANN: “About a month ago you heard Republicans getting sort of this surge about optimism that maybe they could hold on, that the economic news and some other things and Trump not having created, at least by his standards, too much chaos for them, that things were swinging a little bit back in Republicans' direction, and then Helsinki happened, the separations of families on the borders happened, other things that kind of blotted out all of the things that Republicans want to talk about, they all came to the forefront. Now, today, Democrats incredibly confident and optimistic and Republicans privately back to pessimism and thinking, 'The House is probably gone and we maybe can hold on to the Senate.' But the blue wave feels stronger now than it did 30 days ago.”
