Unfortunately for the Republican Party, President Donald Trump is not on the ballot for this November's midterm elections, because the GOP "brand is not doing well right now," pollster John McLaughlin said Sunday.

"We're making progress because the president is picking us up, and the president is leading the change in the country and fighting against the swamp," former Trump campaign pollster McLaughlin told "The Cats Roundtable" on 970 AM-N.Y., per The Hill. "But he's not on the ballot in November – Congress is. And the Republicans in Congress are up.

"And, granted, there's a lot of popular incumbents who will do well for the Republicans on their own, – but the generic brand is not doing well right now, and we need to do better."

With talk of a blue wave coming in 2018, like so many presidential midterms that wind up flipping Congress, McLaughlin advised at-risk Republicans to align themselves with President Trump and denounce the obstruction by Democrats.

"What's necessary to stop any notion of a blue wave is basically for the Republicans in the House and the Senate to actually contrast themselves with the Democrats," he told host John Catsimatidis.

Democrats need to pick up 24 seats in the House to win back the majority, while the Senate is even tighter with the GOP holding a slight 51-49 edge with a number of veteran Republican senators retiring.
