The Cook Political Report has updated their ratings of seven House races with six of them moving toward Democrats, which is another sign that Speaker of the House Paul Ryan is close to losing his job.
The seven House ratings that the Cook Political Report changed:
One of the reasons why Republicans were cheering on the House floor after their tax cuts for the rich/Obamacare repeal bill passed is that they have convinced themselves that passing a tax cut is their key to holding on to the House Majority.
Voters disapprove of the tax cut bill by more than a 2-1 margin, but Republicans have never let reality interfere with their fantasies when it comes to the magic power of tax cuts for the rich. Democrats were already building immense momentum before their victories in the 2017 election. The changing House ratings are a reflection of the direction that the country is going in.
Paul Ryan is an unpopular Speaker of the House, and his inability to get anything done has enraged Trump voters, while his refusal to challenge the president has mobilized the left against him. There is an eternity between now and Election Day 2018, but there is a noticeable shift in the country.
Speaker Ryan could soon be out of a job, as an enraged country is ready to take out their anger on House Republicans.
