CNN Panel: Trump Wiretap Claims Could Lead to GOP Losing the House
BROWNSTEIN: "Just real quickly. The political point to all of this is that the battle for control of the House in 2018 will be decided, the tipping point will be ordinarily Republican-leaning districts where there is a significant unease around Donald Trump where his approval rating is well below what Republican presidents usually enjoy, and if Republicans are going to lose the House in 2018, the most likely route by which they'll lose it is enough of the voters conclude they are not acting as a sufficient check on a president about whom they are deeply ambivalent. And that is probably the biggest single vulnerability that they have. The voters ambivalent against Trump deciding they need a stronger eye on Trump. And whether they look at if they're in essence closing their eyes or rubber stamping behavior and/or the allegations that are troubling for good reason."
