Why yesterday's election results are bad for Trump

Most news outlets spun that House of Delegates margin as a Democratic triumph-a "tsunami election" that swept away what had been seen as an ironclad Republican majority. "That's why you're seeing such jubilation that maybe the tide is turning". Considering only two states - New Jersey and Virginia - held major races, you might be wondering why the 2017 election results are a bad sign for Trump.

The New Jersey governor's race was a Democratic blowout.

The latest of those Republican wins came in Utah, where Provo Mayor John Curtis easily won a special election to replace Jason Chaffetz in the U.S. House.

Northam, who is only fifty-eight years old but grandfatherly in mien, had probably been underestimated as a candidate.

On policy, Thursday will be the first opportunity to see how wide a gap exists between the House and Senate tax bills.

But Democrats showed that anti-Trump anger could spur a huge turnout even in an off-year election. Now 53, she voted for the first time in her life in Virginia's statewide elections yesterday. Tuesday evening, as the President flew from South Korea to Vietnam while Virginia turned against his party, Trumpism seemed small enough that all its partisans could fit on Air Force One. Virginia's results suggest Democratic voters have grown extraordinarily energized, particularly in the suburbs. "Governors will have never mattered more". "If that pattern repeats itself in California, suburban Republicans should be concerned".

Steve Israel, a Democrat from New York, is a political novelist and CNN contributor.

And by winning a special Senate election in Washington, Democrats erected a "blue wall" along the West Coast.

Now Democratic leaders are hoping to turn that electoral ire against congressional Republicans who back the president's agenda.

Rep. Mark Meadows (R-N.C.) separately told reporters on Wednesday that Senate Republicans were "whipping" or measuring support within the caucus, on including the repeal provision.

Virginia Republicans did collapse at the polls, but they still may not cede their legislative majority to Democrats.

"You can't really look at tonight's results and conclude that Democrats are anything other than the current favorites to pick up the U.S. House in 2018", Dave Wasserman, who analyzes U.S. House and statehouse races for the nonpartisan Cook Political Report, said on Twitter.

The story of this election was supposed to be the scorched-earth culture war that Gillespie had orchestrated in October, when his campaign advertisements skipped from one Fox News talking point to the next. It forecasts future elections, but its warnings are usually unnoticed. "There's nobody sitting back on their haunches", he said. The referendum represented the first time since the signature health bill of former President Barack Obama took effect that the question of expansion was put before U.S. voters. The Virginia rout certainly serves as an important reminder that Democrats can still compete in individual gerrymandered districts.

Gerrymandering apologists often dismiss this problem by blaming Democratic voters for clustering together in cities, creating a few dense liberal districts but allowing the rest of the state to fall into Republican hands.

"I will be very clear". He easily defeated Republican state lawmaker Nicole Malliotakis and several third-party candidates. And Northam, it must be said, was not exactly an electrifying candidate; he ran a campaign that often seemed hesitant and confused. David Toscano of Charlottesville said Wednesday.

Andrea Jenkins was elected to Minneapolis city council in Ward 8 on Tuesday.

Among the Democrats' influx of candidates across the nation this year were a record 43 women, many of whom said they were inspired by former US secretary of state Hillary Rodham Clinton's defeat to jump into politics. "People are looking for a different kind of leadership".
