46. One thing I'd note, though...

Virginia isn't turning blue because we're winning over the votes of people who are culturally southern, it's turning blue because of the DC suburbs and exurbs in northern Virginia that have a lot of northern transplants. Texas is turning blue because of the Latino vote.

So, while I agree that it's great that these places are turning blue, they're not turning blue because we've been successful in our outreach to the type of voters Sanders is talking about. They're turning blue in spite of our failure to reach out to those people.
