Why Trump is blatantly making the midterms a referendum on him

Politico says that Trump "is making the midterms a referendum on the one thing he appears most comfortable talking about: himself." The president is "asking supporters to suspend their disbelief and imagine that his head is on the chopping block."

Like Hurricane Michael hitting Florida with Category 4 intensity, Trump is the gale-force wind who will propel his party to either victory or defeat. As with everything else in the Trump era, the midterm elections are about Donald Trump.
