RNC Chair: 'Greatest Enthusiasm in Our Party Right Now Is for President Trump'


Laura Ingraham said it was almost a certainty that Republicans would lose the gubernatorial elections in New Jersey and Virginia, but there are still lessons than President Donald Trump and the GOP can take away heading into 2018.

"I think they've gone about as far as they can go with the politics of anger," Ingraham said.

She explained that Republicans want to see a happier, calmer electorate for the 2018 midterms.

She said that Trump has a lot of successes - such as the soaring economy - to show nine months into his presidency.

"The president and GOP, however, they must work together and they've got to start racking up legislative victories to show voters - even those who usually don't vote for Republicans - that conservative, populist policies are improving their lives," Ingraham said.

She noted that happy voters vote for the party that's in power, while angry voters vote the party in power out.

"That's what happened a year ago," Ingraham said. "The Republicans do not want to see tables reversed on them in 2018."
