Like their state legislature?
I believe they've flipped 2 seats in the state senate already
Special elections are oddities, though. Whichever party pours as much resources into that one election will win, and since its the only election at that time then there's extra effort in flipping the seat.
the trend has been pretty darn consistent
Yeah, Trump did fire up the Progressive base these past two years.
But they can't commit the effort we've been seeing in special elections to hundreds of elections at once, equally.
So we flip the entire rust belt
States that have been solid democrat
And we need to take them every election now?
We didn't even take MN in 2016?
Trumps approval ratings among whties from WI, PA, and MN are in the crapper
Decades of building up to it,
and now it will never happen again...
That's my point!
The parties are ever-changing, and Republicans could capture the working class-White vote from Democrats in key states, since Democrats are committed to minority issues more than economic issues.
These states have been solid democrat since 1932!
And all of the sudden
@GavinTheViking If that's going to happen it will be in Minnesota's 8th and 1st congressional districts
We just need to carry them every election to win
There aren't many White Working Class districts held by Democrats anymore
In the Rust Belt there are
I guess there is also WI-03 and IA-02
but the incumbents are popular
We can't win
We just need to start carrying states that have been reliable democrat for 4 times the amount of time most of us have been alive :D
We had a chance to pick up a district in Pennsylvania where Trump won
but then the SC redrew it
They aren't impossible to carry if Trump won (or nearly won) them in 2016.
yes they are
do you know any other republican in the area
With the energy and arura of Trump
