HK: Trump essentially owns GOP primaries while Dems dominate special elections

But improving presidential approval and country moving in right direction number make predictions questionable

Although Trump got off to a shaky start in GOP primaries, last Tuesday’s half dozen confirmed the President’s firm if not unshakeable hold on Republican primary voters. He virtually swept the field aided and abetted by the primary voter’s disgust with Congress and incumbency. Even unknown, third-tier pro-Trump candidates outperformed.

Contrast that, however, to Democratic dominance in all but one of the recent mid-term special elections and you are left with a head scratching conundrum.

Who has the upper hand six months from the mid-terms?
