voting in AmericaRepublicans will get pummeled in the 2018 midterm elections if conservatives choose to stay home, says a veteran conservative activist.  

The National Republican Congressional Committee recently announced record-breaking fundraising totals, a sign that the party has the financial means to fight Democrats to maintain control of the House.

But there won't be a victory for the GOP if it fails to deliver on its promises to voters, says Ken Blackwell, Ohio's former secretary of state who is now at the Family Research Council.

Even though Democrats don't have much to run on except hatred for Trump, Blackwell tells OneNewsNow, Republicans have to deliver on their promises.

"Because if they don't," he says, "that will weaken the intensity of the base turnout and that would by default hand Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi a free swing in the batter's cage." 

Democrats have enjoyed a double-digit lead in generic congressional polls since last November, but The Hill and other media outlets reported in mid-February that Republicans closed that lead, then overtook Democrats, by a one-point margin.

Self-identified independent voters account for 49 percent of those polled and are undecided about either party, the polling showed. 

If the elections arrive but Republicans and conservatives stay home, warns Blackwell, the GOP will be "steamrolled" this fall and the results will be disastrous.

"We'll lose the House and President Trump will be impeached," predicts Blackwell. "So we have to able to show people that they have a reason to get out and vote."
