Calm down, Democrats — your troubles aren’t over

“The conventional wisdom has been that Trump is such a unique figure that voters would not necessarily apply their dissatisfaction with Trump to other Republican candidates. Virginia shows this is not going to be the case. The Democrats’ candidate for governor, Ralph Northam, easily linked Gillespie with Trump, and it seems that other Republicans’ fortunes will also be tied to Trump’s success, or lack of success. And yet, while Republicans took a thorough beating on Tuesday, it would be wrong to draw far-reaching conclusions from this ‘off-year’ election cycle, where relatively few seats for national or state-level roles were contested. Democrats may no longer be feeling doom and gloom, but Tuesday shouldn’t have them celebrating, as the results didn’t show the Democrats overcoming their fundamental shortcomings.” (11/09/17)
