Having given Donald Trump the Republican nomination, the Republicans are now on the verge of losing big because of it.
Colorado, Florida, Pennsylvania, Virginia and Wisconsin were all shifted from toss-up states to leaning Democratic. The “solid Republican” states Missouri and Indiana were downgraded to “likely Republican.” New Mexico is now solidly Democratic, and North Carolina is a toss-up after leaning Republican.
The analyst also shifted Arizona and Georgia from likely Republican to leaning Republican.
Cook also moved one House race toward Democrats: Nebraska’s 2nd Congressional District, which was considered solid for Republicans and is now classified as a toss-up race.
As the Clinton margins widen, losing the Senate is not only likely, but the House increasingly becomes in jeopardy.
The irony here is the very Republicans who staged this rebellion in the party are going to force the whole country back into an executive and legislative branch helmed by the Democrats and this time, unlike last time, they’ll be able to then put the judicial branch in the hands of the left too.
Well done, Republicans. Well done.
