A guest on Fox News warned viewers Monday that the Republican Party could be facing major defeats in the upcoming midterm elections.
Third Way co-founder Jim Kessler said that the Republicans had failed to compromise with Democrats in Congress.
“The Republicans have a problem,” he explained. “They’re going into the midterms — their approval ratings wouldn’t melt an ice cube. So they are looking at a bloodbath in 2018 and 2017 was a year in which Republicans really did not look to Democrats for help. They did everything on their own. There needs to be a change. The signal needs to come from President Trump and it’s got to be more than words — it has to be deeds.”
“One of the things you saw both in the Virginia race — where Democrats won the governorship — and in Alabama, where Doug Jones won, in these purple and red states Democrats nominated moderates,” Kessler added.
“And if they are nominating moderates in purple and red areas, they could have a very, very successful election in 2018.. so I think Democrats feel optimistic about 2018.”

Devin Nunes’ hometown paper flooded with letters from disgusted out-of-towners
The Frenso Bee, which hails from the San Joaquin Valley where California GOP Congressman Devin Nunes is from, published a series of letters from people around the country who watched his performance in this week's impeachment hearings. The letters all had one thing in common: a notable "absence of pro-Nunes sentiment," which the Fresno Bee's Marek Warszawski said was not intentional on his part.
"Angry people tend to send letters, not those who are pleased," he writes.
WATCH: Lindsey Graham flees Iraq War vet who politely asks to talk about Trump’s conduct
Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) on Friday was filmed running away from a war veteran who tried to talk with him about President Donald Trump's impeachable conduct.
In a video posted by progressive veterans organization Common Defense, a man who identifies himself as an Iraq War veteran from Louisiana calmly walks up to Graham and tells the senator that he believes that he's being treated unfairly by the media.
"I believe that you honestly believe in our democracy as I do," the man tells him.
"I do," Graham replies.
"I came here to D.C. because I'm a Marine, I went to Iraq, and I believe, as I believe that you do, that President Trump is not acting in accordance to his oath," the veteran continued. "The oath that you took and I did to defend the Constitution."
‘The Senate’s in play’: Reeling GOP faces collapse into minority status as Trump drags party down
According to a report in Rolling Stone, there is a very good chance that the Democrats could take control of the Senate after the 2020 election as the impeachment of Donald Trump casts a cloud over the Republican Party.
The report -- by longtime political observer Tim Dickinson -- states, "the fight to wrest the Senate from Republican control — and oust Mitch McConnell as majority leader — is arguably just as important" as the battle to force Trump from office.
