There are still some hopeful signs from Indiana, the emergence of Pete Buttigieg being one of them. I for one am at a complete loss as to how President Obama won in a state such as Iowa twice, only to have it morph into a MAGA stronghold beginning in 2016. Perhaps the level of commitment and enthusiasm shown in Indiana back in 2008 made a difference elsewhere as well.
