- Dec 2015
I watched OPB last night and got a blow by blow account of the elections. Republicans won wherever Trump campaigned for them. Perhaps we need to get out of denial and accept many people are in favor of Trump and try to figure out why? Where I live democrats are the majority, but that is not true of all places. It is mind-boggling to me that there our country seems to be so seriously culturally split. I am curious, which of us are living in a blue state and which of us are living in red states? How much impact does this have on our arguments?
Not so, Athena. Trump campaigned in my home state of Wisconsin and Democrats TOOK the governorship. In Ohio, Sherrod Brown held his Senate seat and five other Democrats kept their state seats. Iowa kept their Democratic House. Montana Democrat Jon Tester kept his Senate seat. These are just some examples of Trump's campaigning did NOT help the GOP.
Trump also came to Arizona although he was NOT welcome....and Arizona is a Red State.
The GOP is still in control here.
