  • As Democrats dominate, Trump supporters stand by him

In his victory speech, Northam didn't mention Trump by name, but his message was clear - Virginia will be a welcoming place in comparison to Trump's immigration policies and broader nationalist agenda.

The backlash to Trump wasn't limited just to the Virginia governor's mansion, however.

Tuesday's Virginia House of Delegates elections brought major dividends for Democrats, and could lead to that party's control of the House.

The surprisingly early call in what was expected to be a much closer contest portended a very good night for Democrats in the Old Dominion and across the country. Cheryl Turpin, who ran in a special election earlier this year and lost, defeated her GOP opponent in Virginia Beach.

Chief among them, the person said, was that Virginia and New Jersey are blue states that went for Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential race and that those results last year "weren't even close".

Democrat Ralph Northam has easilywon the Virginia governor's race, defeating Republican Ed Gillespie in a stinging rebuke to President Trump. "So maybe this is a message for everyone". States like Wisconsin, Michigan, and Ohio flipped red for Trump, and in addition to Illinois, they currently have Republican governors.

And many political analysts caution against drawing overly broad conclusions about Tuesday's election results. As Henry Adams observed, politics is often the systematic organization of hatreds, and few other Republicans are hated as fiercely as Trump.

As the 2018 election approaches, where Senate, House and more governor seats will be up for grabs, Borick says it will be interesting to watch the strategies from both sides of the aisle.

On Wednesday morning, the network continued its myopic focus on anything but the previous day's elections. As he drew nearer to Northam in the polls, Republicans had begun to suggest that his campaign would be a model going into next year's midterms. Republicans suffered no surprise losses to Democrats and the GOP still controlled a huge majority of the country's governor's offices and state legislatures. They used that power to entrench their control. The Democratic candidate held a 68-vote lead in the fourth race.

Virginia voters turned out in rainy weather Tuesday to pick a new governor after months of divisive campaigning led to an ugly slugfest overshadowed by racial overtones and attack ads. Trump has given Congress until March to come up with a fix. Democrats picked up at least 14 seats, and 10 of the winners were women.

Since Trump's election, "there's still a little bit of PTSD in a lot of Democrats", said Maclen Zilber, a Democratic consultant in Los Angeles working on several California House races. "This is history", declared Catherine Vaughan of Flippable, which went five for five in their House of Delegates endorsements. These smaller governmental entities will also engage in redistricting in 2021.

And in New Jersey, a true-blue state, the only Republican politician who was repudiated on Tuesday was Mr. Unpopularity himself, outgoing Gov. Chris Christie. To hire the best people and make the best deals?

This trend toward polarization seems likely to hamper the current occupant of the White House as well — and the impact could be sharpened further by how unpopular Trump is. "I don't think we should put artificial deadlines inside the one we already have", Ryan said. She said in a recent documentary series that Trump's election was a "catalyst" for her nascent political career. But, he added, that "if in order to be successful in this issue that is an option that is open to us, I think a lot of people would probably be open to that". "Our city council is made up entirely of older, white council members", she said.
