Whenever a 2018 election poll comes out that looks good for Democrats, the mainstream media starts shaking their pom-poms and giving away blue wave spirit ribbons. Early this year every news cycle was 24 hours a day blue wave coverage. The blue wave cheerleading has slowed down since polling data turned against the Democrats, but there are still blue wave devotees on the left. Unfortunately for them, the House and Senate maps don't show any signs of a blue wave, and- more importantly- neither do the California jungle primaries.
