Today’s highly interesting read (11/04/21): It’s Not That Democrats Lost. It’s That They Lost Everywhere

Today’s read is from Alan Greenblatt, Senior Staff Writer for Governing.com. Here’s an excerpt:

The fact that Republicans were able to score gains in an overwhelmingly blue state – Joe Biden carried New Jersey by 16 percentage points last year – points to trouble for Democrats all around the country heading into next year’s midterms. Democrats lost in all kinds of areas where they normally win, from South Texas to South Jersey and Long Island.

“These results should be an alarm clock rousing us from sleep,” said Bill Pascrell, a New Jersey Democratic congressman. “If we don’t deliver then we won’t deserve to govern.”

Republican Glenn Youngkin’s victory in the Virginia governor’s race was the top story out of Tuesday, but looking ahead, the bigger danger for Democrats is that Republicans made gains everywhere – among suburbanites, rural voters and Hispanics.
