WATCH: A Look Ahead as Battle for House, Senate Seats Gets Underway

December 22, 2017
OAN Newsroom

Democrat leaders are asking failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton for help in the upcoming 2018 midterm elections.

In an interview released Thursday, the former head of the House Democrat’s Campaign Committee said Clinton may be “helpful” with rallying support in districts she won back in 2016.

However, polling data shows support for the Democrat is now at an all-time low as she continues to blame others for her most recent election loss.

Clinton has yet to make any official announcement regarding her role in next year’s midterms.

A lot is at stake in the 2018 midterm elections as President Trump hopes to advance his agenda in Congress.

One America’s Kelly Ayers has a preview of the toughest match-ups.

    ??? WHAT HAPPENED killary ???

  • Austrailianterrierlady

    stupid the commies need help. sorry hopefully they commies go down in flames in 2018

  • No Mas

    The choice is simple and should be explained by the Media and opposition.
    A vote for any democrat in todays world is a vote for a Dictatorship run COMMUNIST NATION LIKE VENEZUELA! (Handouts to make you a slave)
    A vote for most republican is a vote for American values, Constitutional values. (Hand UPS to give you a chance at opportunity)

  • Richard

    If republicans don’t hit the voting booth in 2018. they will lose. If they think the can rely on their l orals in 2018, they will lose. The democrats are going to try anything and everything legal and otherwise to strip President Trump of any advantage he has in the house and senate. It is going to be a nasty year and I for one already hate whats coming.

  • JJCaro

    Democrats made a huge mistake in 2016 by believing the fake news media whose steady drumbeat about Trump’s low ratings set them up for a devastating disappointment. Like a dog who can NEVER learn a new trick, Dems are doing exactly the same thing heading into 2018. America is NOT about to permit Dems to take over our country again. They were 100% committed to destroying America from within then; and there is NO WAY they can change their colors now. Regardless of what they do now, they are going to continue to see their power in both houses dwindling. Even the Democrats who are not anti-American globalists know that their party has gone to the dogs. They will not support the ugly rhetoric and outright lies about President Trump they are hearing from Pelosi, Schumer and others. President Trump is making a VERY STRONG case for a one party system in America. Democrat Party has become so detestable with its voter fraud, its give-away programs that help foreigners and hurt Americans, and its immigrations policies which import terror inside our borders, it is difficult to believe any American would remain loyal to it. The ONLY thing Dems have going for them now are propaganda media lies and obstruction. The days of adversarial politics are drawing to a close. Americans have no more use for two parties at each other’s throats. It costs money and it accomplishes NOTHING. In the wake of decades of this kind of government, enemies of the state have crept in and taken root in our communities, schools, and government. As President Trump says often, “There is NOTHING we can not accomplish for ourselves and for the world if we remain united.” For Democrats “united” is a four letter word.

  • peggy6824

    Democrats should stop beating around the bush and rather than just attacking the other party, they should just tell the American people what their agenda/platform and vision for the future of the country is, point blank.

    Their vision is;

    • Amnesty/Citizenship for all illegal aliens (economic migrants) in the nation regardless of the financial cost and danger they pose to our citizens thus the creation of “sanctuary cities”.

    • As many as possible so called “refugees” (economic migrants) from 3rd world nations that promote/sponsor terrorism regardless of the financial cost and danger they pose to our citizens.

    • Open borders.

    • Higher taxes/more cuts to taxpayer funded benefits/services for Americans to pay for the protection, support, & care of the illegals in the sanctuary cities/states they have created, including pedophiles, rapists, murderers, gang members, drug dealers, etc..

    • Cheap labor for the very rich that they publicly assail on an almost daily basis via Amnesty, refugees, open borders, H-1B, H-2B visas. (Ask yourselves why Wall Street & big business gives more to Democrats than Republicans.)

    • The destruction of organized religion.

    • Forcing the American people to accept men in womens restrooms, locker rooms, showers, dressing rooms, etc.

    • The devastation/destruction of the lives/livelihoods of those who believe in the sanctity of religion/faith by forcing them to sacrifice their faith/souls on the altar of gay marriage.

    • Disarming the American people as they flood the country with criminals from 3rd world nations who would prey on them.

    • The denial of the 1st Amendment right to free speech for those who disagree with their agenda/platform & vision for the future of the country.

    • Spending the country into oblivion/bankruptcy by increasing the welfare state & adding more taxpayer funded programs like Obamaphones & free internet, an idea offered up by Chuck Schumer recently in lieu of a wall on the Southern Border. (Ask yourselves why Obama removed all work requirements for those on welfare/food stamps & now there is a battle in states trying to reinstitute education/20 hour a week work requirements.)

    • Two sets of laws, one for them & one for the rest of us evidenced by the fact that they ignored the crimes committed by Bill Clinton, Hillary Clinton, Bob Menendez, the Podesta’s, & others for which there exists a mountain of evidence while seeking to impeach Trump sans one shred of evidence of any crimes committed.

    Let’s not forget that they ignored the voices of their base/constituents by choosing a nominee for them thus denying them the right to participate in the democratic process of choosing their own nominee/future leaders. (millions were donated to Bernie Sanders & millions were spent in man hours attending his rallies, campaigning, & going door to door because people were led to believe by their party’s leaders that Bernie had a chance thus the lawsuit filed against the DNC by Bernie’s donors.) They deliberately ignored their own charter with regard to impartiality/neutrality.

  • Rick Martinez

    The liberal democrats and the BIASED MEDIA would have Americans believe that because conservatives lost elections in Alabama and Virginia–that it’s a referendum–a rejection–of President Trump and proof that poll low approval ratings are correct. Yet, like in the presidential election of 2016–WE either believe or we don’t. LOOK, Alabama was lost by a very slim margin and only because of the millions of liberal democrat smear campaign dollars spent on allegations of sexual misconduct. And Virginia was also lost by a very slim margin because of the liberal democrat millions of dollars smear campaign that showed white supremacists in trucks running after illegal immigrants trying to beat them up. This is how liberal democrats try to win: They put people down in order to lift themselves up: No one likes or respects a drowning swimmer who pulls someone else down in order to save himself–and then comes out saying, “I’m here!” The liberal democrats have nothing positive or good to say about themselves, what they believe, what they stand for, or how they plan to serve America and Americans. Conservative candidates–if they are strong and smart–have President Trump and his numerous accomplishments–and believe it or not, Americans SEE, KNOW and FEEL all that he has done. The reason the polls done reflect it is because questions seek answers on “positions on issues” vs. people’s “underlying beliefs” which is a great distinction. “Do you like they way President Trump goes after CNN?” Most people offer a disapproval rating. However, if asked “Do YOU–like President Trump–believe there is fake news and you have the right to call them out?” Their answer would be “approval.” To arrive at an answer on a “position on an issue” is easy; to learn of someone’s “underlying belief” takes a bit more effort and time. That’s what it will take to win the mid-term elections…effort and time.

  • Javanne

    The election will hinge almost entirely on the electorate’s evaluation of Trump. Democratic voters will remain so, as Trump’s ‘base’ will remain Republican, but if his policies, especially those relating to the economy, succeed, he will gain more votes from voters who could go either way than he got in 2016, and vica-versa. The jury is out, right now. May there be time between now and next November for that jury to have sufficient evidence to come to its verdict – retention of control of both houses of Congress by the GOP – especially the Senate, so Trump can continue to remove judges who put ideology above the law.

  • Javanne

    Clinton will probably help the GOP. Having her campaign in districts she won will gain the Democrats zilch, since those districts are already in their camp.

  • Mountainhiker

    Bottom line, not one single democrat represented the people that voted them into office by participating in working on the tax bill, WHY would you be so stupid to vote for a democrat when they will NOT represent you?

  • Ray

    I don’t really care what Hil-liar-y does, all I want to see is Democratic loses in these elections. And sadly, we’ll be seeing these stories for another 11 months.

  • TexanForever

    Contrary to the libs’ wishful thinking, 2018 is going to blow the Dems out of the water because he’s producing.

    As for the move to impeach, Trump has a solid handle on it and isn’t worried. … MAGA
    .

  • Sergeant_rock

    With any luck at all, and the DOJ doing it job RIGHT, Clinton will have to offer them help from a jail cell….

  • Fed Up !

    This will not be a battle but a rout. America is sick of the demoncraps and rinos. Bye creeps!

  • CO

    Left is using the ACLU to attack schools in Arizona now another big mistake by Liberals.

  • Frank Meccia

    Yes, I agree with the DNC, Use Clinton to campaign, put her on the road, she and Warren. This will guarantee a win for the RNC

  • J. Waltam

    Looks like “lil Marquito” Rubio standing behind Trump on his right. The Donald better protect his six.

  • IndependentTexan

    Oh absolutely! I hope Hillary and Bad Billy assist in every Dem race around the country! Take that daughter of yours along as a stage prop as well.

  • Spud51

    This amuses me.!! It’s as if these people are oblivious of what has been giving the GOP the majorities in the House and Senate since 2010.!! The influence of the TEA Party seems to allude them, as does that of the more potent Popular Nationalist Movement that gave Trump the Presidency.!!
    But now that more potent Movement has been agravated by the blatant subversive actions and activities of the obviously Marxist Democrats and thier RINO enablers to the point of thoughts of preparing for a Civil War; and the MSM thinks that it is going to talk the citizens into voting for the Democrats in the midterms.!! Really???

  • 2EdgedSword

    Oh yeah, some battle: Soros $$$, Obama $$$, Clinton $$$, McConnell $$$. No battle, just another Sandy Hook fool fest for those stupid enough to believe.

    • nfcapitalist

      Think we’ll survive the contamination of the DOJ and FBI corruption, America?

      Be honest… only way I’ll ever trust them is if they come clean and it’s freaking obvious… that’s NEVER going to happen… they are dedicated to covering up the cover-up!

  • grandmother5

    Merry Christmas to OAN and to all of the people that takes the time to comment on all the stories.

    The Dims need to use Hill every chance they get. Builds confidence in the integrity of the party and assurance of a party win.

    Hillary is smart; Hillary is honest; Hillary is humble; Hillary is good natured; Hillary is mentally stable; and Hillary is modest. She’s a sweetheart. What more could anyone want as a reflection of the Lib Dems? … Go for it !!

    • J. Waltam

      Yes pleeeezzz keep Killary, Nancy Altzheimer, Pocahontas, Two Buck Chuck, Dinosaur Diane, Nutty Maxine, Calamity Freddie Wilson and the rest of this talented crew online to help the Dippocrits out.

      • Frank Meccia

        Love the names. Wish I came up with that..

  • grandmother5

    Instead of doing their job, that they were voted in office to do, they are worried and working on re election? I just don’t see the DNC asking Hillary for help. Can’t they see that she is the reason or at least part of the reason they are in this mess?

    • All American

      Agreed that would be a grievous error ⬇️

    • TexanForever

      Fingers crossed. Hope they trot her out.
      .

    • Johnny G.

      Hillary is a pariah (along with her pervert/ predator hubby, “Slick Willie”) in DC elitist circles. Guilt by association.

  • Franklin

    Plenty of work needs doing. No need to get all worked up about the election this early. Things are changing rapidly. We have time for this next summer.

    • All American

      Bigger fish to fry! Where are they on the wall?

    • grandmother5

      They will need time to learn their lines from the speech writers. You know the lines that will say “whatever the voters want they will say they will get it for them” then with a smile, they will not do when in office.

      • Rufus Firefly

        That was one course that Trump passed.

        • grandmother5

          Rufus I know you don’t like President Trump and that’s OK. I like him because he’s not a politician. To me that is refreshing. Merry Christmas Rufus and Happy New Year.

          • Rufus Firefly

            He is not a politician just like Putin is not a politician. Trump is a con man who could never be hired by any legitimate corporation. His business “acumen” and whatever success he may have had are due to his ties to organized crime (foreign and domestic). He is a useful idiot and first class money launderer.

            And a happy Festivus and Merry Christmas Eve Eve.

          • grandmother5

            Good Lord Rufus, get a life. Mentioning money laundering you really should talk to Hillary and Bill about that.

        • TexanForever

          Rufe, we all are aware you want big government telling everybody how they must live their lives, using their confiscated tax money to rule them. … We get that. And we understand you hate anyone who challenges this Marxist style of economics, which in this instance would be Trump.

          But can’t you give it a rest for a while? We’re weary of stepping around your meadow muffins and trail truffles. Stuff a sock in it for a while. Next year is certain to bring new thrills and we’ll all enjoy your reactions.

          And Merry Christmas.

    I guess it is appropriate to ask Clinton’s for help or guidance on how to stay out of jail since they (Clinton’s) have been so successful at it.

    Trump’s minority (in numbers) base seem to live in the bubble where all their friends and neighbors are just like them and they all get their news from the Trump News Channel (formerly Fox). In that bubble of alternate reality, Trump is a savior. The rest of the world knows better.

      Glad to see you on board, agreeing he is our Devine intervention in these latter days. Actually lot of us have shifted to OAN, Fox seems to have some liberal sided reporters.

        Gillian and Leland seem to be the newest team of tired propagandists delivering flat lines and meaningless questions designed to stop answers they don’t want with long run on sentences leading to the fake Russian collusion and the tiresome question asked thousands of times, will Trump fire Mueller… no is the answer… no.

      May I suggest you don’t watch Fox News. I think that will be a nice thing for you to do. Not only would it help you with your health problems, it would help us not to hear you whine.

      • Rufus Firefly

        I rarely watch TrumpTV. Dipping into the lie-filled swamp from time to time is more than enough

    • J. Waltam

      I prefer the Clinton News Network. Novel entertainment, the viewer can escape from reality, and get the straight skinny from journalists interviewing journalists.

        Yep. … Chicken Noodle News has gotten even better since they hired Baghdad Bob.

    That will end with the first coughing spasm and seizure.

      After they inject her with a diazepam injection pen and throw her in the back of a van (again)

  • Bob Ritthsler

    I and my friends believe it’ll be a landslide victory for us Trumpers. Given our beliefs (mostly retired SpecFor) this may not be true. All these polls are untrustworthy so I guess that no one can be sure till the elections actually happen

      Life is different outside the bubble

    • All American

      For sure! Great news for the Republican Party 🇺🇸🎉

    • Disgusted Caucasian

      Don’t be so sure about that Bob. Remember how dirty and relentless the demonrats got to regain just one Senate seat a few weeks ago? Nothing is more dangerous or unpredictable than a wounded animal. Demonrats are that animal and will do anything to block the Trump agenda. Republicans aren’t much help either as many of us will not hold our noses if we are forced to vote for never-Trump establishment types after everything they have done to derail Trumps election and agenda. Signing onto just one bill isn’t enough for this voter.
