Welcome to the PredictWise Daily 20180716:

1) President Trump/Republicans want Russia to defeat US in cyber-war, because investigation and defensive actions would (1) embarrass Republicans who were helped by Russia (2) cut-off further help from Russia. Think about that for a second: President of the Untied States wants US to lose ongoing war for personal gain. Helskini Summit was one embarrassment after another as President Trump trashed US intelligence and law enforcement to ingratiate himself with Russia’s Putin.

2) Every day Republican senators wake up and decide to do nothing to oversee President Trump. Republicans have 50 senators (w/ McCain away) and Democrats have 49. One senator could demand: Trump’s tax returns, protect Muller, start actual hearings on children in cages, Helsinki Summit, etc. No Republican senator can hide behind numbers: just on can hold Trump accountable.

3) Democratic Healthcare Plan (let anyone buy Medicare, at  reasonable rate) is a sharp contrast with the Republican Healthcare Plan (make healthcare unaffordable for people with preexisting conditions and sabotage the market for everyone else).

Market Watch 20180716: Democrats 61 percent to take the House and Republicans 75 percent to hold the Senate outright and 16 percent to hold the Senate with 50/50 tie.
