A new poll released on Monday from a left-leaning news publication showed that the Democrats are paying dearly for their disastrous week last week where they lied about President Trump’s comments regarding violent MS-13 gang members, reports The Daily Wire.
The Reuters Poll revealed that the double-digit lead that the Democrats held over Republicans last month in generic ballot voting for the 2018 midterms among registered voters is now completely gone as Republicans have opened up a six-point lead over the Democrats.

The poll, for the week ending on May 20, shows Republicans at 40.7 percent with Democrats falling down to 34.5 percent. This is the first time Republicans have taken the lead in Reuters’ poll in approximately a year.
Last week, President Trump called violent MS-13 gang members “animals,” and Democrats like Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and the liberal media decided to run with that story and lied about his remarks, taking them out of context and claiming that he was talking about all immigrants.
This cause a storm of outrage amongst conservatives, including the once anti-Trumper Glenn Beck who said on his show that he has had enough of the liberal media twisting the president’s words into something he did not say. This moved Beck so much that he said he was willing to vote for Trump again in 2020 as long as it means to keep the lying liberal elites out of office.
Recent polls have shown that Republicans could win up to nine seats in the Senate and that Millennials are leaving the Democratic Party in droves. This is all good news for the Republican party who has been called upon by the president and current lawmakers to come out in droves for the midterm elections this November.
