Did the Blue Wave Crest Too Soon?

Washington Post: “Some Republicans see something unusual in today’s numbers. Neil Newhouse, a Republican pollster, is one of them. ‘There’s a lot of stuff going on that we just haven’t seen before,’ he said. Newhouse sent along a chart that compares four previous wave elections: 1994, 2006, 2010 and 2014. In all cases, the percentage of people who, at the time of the election, said the country was heading in the right direction was just below 30. By his measure, it’s currently 39 percent.”

Said Newhouse: “Can you have a wave election if ‘right direction’ is 38 or 40 percent? Is that possible?”
