Do Early August Primaries Indicate a Great Blue Wave Is Coming?
The early August primaries are finished and it’s a mixed bag for conservatives. In Missouri, the Republicans took a seat that Democrats hoped to make competitive. It looks like Eric Schmitt will have an easy path to a general election win in November.
And in Arizona, Blake Masters will face off against incumbent Democrat Mark Kelly for the state’s senate seat. And it looks like Kari Lake will win in a very close race for governor.
But all those stats pale in comparison to the vote taken in the state of Kansas. There was an amendment in Kansas that would have allowed the state to pass stricter abortion laws, and it failed. It failed by a large margin.
This has caused the Democrats to declare a major victory for the progressive left.
The outcome of the Kansas vote is the headline.. The turnout and the margin is the politically significant story.

It's possible the margin for "No" in red Kansas will be a resounding double digits, a sign of just how unpopular overturning Roe v. Wade is nationally.

This is the collective logic from the left…Because Kansas voted to keep some abortion protections in its state constitution, Dems are believing that abortion is a top issue that will deliver victories for the party in the midterms.
But some are questioning that logic.
The amendment in Kansas had some problems in it. Experts agree that it was terribly written. Therefore people may have been confused about what a “yes” or “no” vote actually means.
And the amendment was terribly marketed by its supporters. The Dems were able to throw a massive amount of money at it to make sure it was defeated.
What happened in Kansas is not good for the pro-life community, but let’s just wait a minute before we bow to an inevitable blue wave coming in November.
Let’s not forget that some other rather big issues will affect the ballot box. Inflation is not going to go anywhere anytime soon.
Remember…it’s still about the economy. I think we are going to be OK in November.
