One election day down, one more to go

Josh Marshall of Talking Points Memo on last night’s victory for Democrats:

When a President is locked below 40% approval and often closer to 35% approval, his party will face a brutal and unforgiving electorate. This was a fact a decade ago and it’s a fact today. We’ve just been stunned into an unwarranted uncertainty by the fact of Trump’s victory one year ago today.

November 2018 feels like a long time from now, but it will get here.
