It's going to be ugly if they take the House. But they won't. They lost every battle they picked with Trump and they'll lose the midterms too.

I hope you are right!

I don't believe they will take either house.  My feeling is they will lose seats, not gain them.
I agree. Right now they have a great scapegoat with Trump. If they try and throw out Hillary for another run in 2020, it will only prove that they are actually quite content with the way things are going and get to blame Trump if anything goes wrong. Meanwhile the corporate campaign contributions will continue to flow in.

You're right the republicans had opportunities but the leaders in congress hated Trump.  Ryan still does and McConnell apparently has toned it down a little.  I don't think he's a Trump fan yet but he's less hostile

Not 100% Trump myself but the alternative to Trump is not very palatable.

Actually, NO.  I've heard nothing lately.
