Predicting the USA Midterm Elections

Iranian Press TV, Nov 5, 2014 (3 min 17 sec)



Jack Rasmus provides his analysis and predictions of the USA midterm elections. Democrats and Obama are going to lose the Senate by at least 7 seats, Rasmus argues. The reasons area the constituencies-hispanics, youth, and union voters-will 'vote with their feet' and not turnout to vote. The 2014m idterms should be viewed as a continuation of the 2010 midterm elections, when Obama and Democrats lost control of the US House of Representatives. Senators elected in the 2008 national elections are now up for re-election, and will suffer the same political fate in 2014 as House Representatives, who were also elected in 2008, did in 2010. The reasons are Obama-Democrat failure to deliver on their 2008 promises, Rasmus argues.
