"I voted today" t-shirtA former chairman of the Republican Party of Texas is optimistic about the GOP's chances of a sweep this fall.

According to a new Rasmussen survey, 62 percent of likely Republican voters now believe Republicans in Congress have done a good job representing their party's values over the past several years; just 29 percent think they have lost touch with Republican voters from throughout the nation.

This is a dramatic reversal of GOP voter attitudes from January 2019, when 53 percent of Republicans thought their congressional representatives were out of touch with GOP voters nationwide. Prior to that in regular surveying since 2008, more than 60 percent of Republican voters felt that way.

Cathie Adams, a former Republican leader in Texas, thinks the Democrats are weak and demoralized.

"I don't think that any of these candidates are going to be able to retain the House," she predicts. "Nor are they going to take the White House. I think that the Senate is going to remain in Republican hands, and I think that the Republicans are pretty much behaving across the nation as far as standing with our president. That's what they didn't do four years ago, and now they see that his poll numbers are sure better."

Adams believes the Senate race in Texas will be a good example.

"John Cornyn is not a popular U.S. senator, and certainly in Texas he is not popular," she relays. But since he is now "singing the song of Donald Trump," Adams thinks Election Day will end in Cornyn's favor.
