Suburbs swing hard to Democrats in state contests

After Tuesday’s elections in Kentucky, Mississippi, Virginia and Pennsylvania, President Trump took to Twitter to spin the results — and take his usual share of credit.

“Won 5 out of 6 elections in Kentucky, including 5 great candidates that I spoke for and introduced last night,” Trump crowed. “@MattBevin picked up at least 15 points in last days, but perhaps not enough (Fake News will blame Trump!).”

And then, 14 minutes later: “Congratulations to @tatereeves on winning Governor of the Great State of Mississippi. Our big Rally on Friday night moved the numbers from a tie to a big WIN.”

Trump was right that Republicans won a majority of the races in Kentucky and retained the governorship of Mississippi. But a more objective reading is that winning in Kentucky and Mississippi isn’t exactly something to brag about, given that three years ago Trump won the former by 30 points and the latter by 18.
