Abstract

ABSTRACT:

The midterm elections confirmed that Democrats are a national majority party. They have won the popular vote in four of the last five presidential elections and overcame gerrymandering on November 8 to retake the House of Representatives. Their positions are much more popular than Republicans' when it comes to healthcare, taxes, environmental protection, and the other basic work of a modern state. And Donald Trump is not helping his party nationally; his nativist, racist, fear-spreading campaign pushed down-ballot Republicans into electoral craters in educated, prosperous, suburban districts, at a time when the economy is as strong as it has been in twelve years. That takes some doing.
