Wisconsin Republican Rep. Sean Duffy said President Donald Trump is "bullish" on the midterms, adding that the president believes the GOP can keep their majorities in both the House and Senate, the Washington Examiner reported.
Duffy rode with Trump on Air Force One to a campaign stop in Duluth, Minnesota, on Wednesday.
"He’s pretty bullish," Duffy told the Examiner. “Enthusiasm matters. … You can’t help but recognize the enthusiasm and excitement that Americans have for the president, and the more he does that [host rallies], the more he’ll help turnout."
Trump is buoyed by polls that show his approval ratings on the rise and support for congressional Democrats on the decline.
Further, the support Trump got in blue-belt Minnesota could be an indicator of things to come, Duffy said.
"Duluth, Minnesota is not a hotbed for conservatism, it is kind of the toughest area that he has, I think, in the upper Midwest, the Iron Range, the old school Democrat, and it was impressive to see how many people came out from Duluth, the love he was receiving, from a group of people I don’t think are used to going Republican rallies," Duffy told the Examiner.
"When you campaign and you get that kind of response, and now you’ve been governing for 15 months and you get that kind of response," Duffy told the Examiner. "That bodes well for us."
