Democrats are currently surging after a wide-sweeping political victory in the November special elections. Even though in 2017 the economy did not stumble, the GOP has been unable to take advantage due to anti-Trumpism. The democrats currently hold a double-digit margin over the republicans for the midterm elections. However, the affirmative allows Trump to broadcast his message outside of his base. Democrat voters regard Trump as attacking popular programs; the passage of the AFF leads to Trump taking credit for the large-scale education reform. Trump’s thunder-stealing will quell the resentment against him in the ballot box and lead to a plethora of impacts such as: Russian aggression in the Baltics, China-Taiwan conflict, and of course, nuclear exchanges.
