Pollsters counted him out. Pundits never gave him a chance. But while they mocked his election prospects, candidate Donald Trump traveled the country turning out votes to defy the odds in 2016.

But we’ve defied history before, and the Republican Party is in prime position to do it again in 2018.
Despite facing a “blue wave,” when Americans headed to the polls to cast their ballots in primary elections, Republicans had record turnout. We saw numbers that were 61 percent higher in West Virginia, 43 percent higher in Indiana, and 48 percent higher in Ohio. That’s no coincidence.
