Signs of the Blue Wave continue to mount after taking a hiatus for a few weeks. Democrats flipped two more seats on Tuesday.The generic poll now had Democrats with an advantage of 16 points. If those numbers hold up, it is likely a massive landslide. But
Rachel Maddow on Democrats' possible impending Blue Wave
— Egberto Willies (@EgbertoWillies) February 28, 2018
While the possibility of a Blue Wave seems to be getting nearly definite, nothing should be taken for granted because the American population is very fluid.
Daily Kos reported the Democratic seat flip as follows.
What’s better than one Democratic special election pickup in a night?
Two. Two wins are better than one. And in Connecticut House District 120, Democrats just flipped their 39th state legislative seat of the cycle in Tuesday’s second red-to-blue flip (the first came in the New Hampshire House.) Democrat Phil Young won this seat 51-49 percent. ...
Young, who will be the first Democrat to represent the district in 44 years, campaigned on three main priorities: increasing education funding, protecting the environment, and fighting the opioid epidemic (he lost two restaurant staffers to fatal overdoses). ...
Even in blue Connecticut, flipping a seat that had been in Republican hands for over 40 years is a significant achievement, and this win should only feed the dread building within the GOP. Democrats are winning elections in districts of every stripe, and Republicans everywhere should be very, very frightened this fall.
Democrats are in a great spot, but they must prepare for externalities that can flip elections on a dime. I wrote about this in the article titled "Democrats, prepare for outside forces that could stymie impending Blue Wave." I hope Democrats heed the message.
