Flip side of turnout story was dropoff of rural whites. Biggest risk to Trump's isn't that ppl who voted for him turn against him. It's that they lose interest. They never had much interest in politics anyway.

Dems will surely make noise in slowing it down. But this race was not a referendum on tax bill, and Rs already had set goal to send this to Trump by Dec 20

A sitting Republican president lost an Alabama Senate race twice in a couple of months. Twice. In Alabama. That's a weak president.

It'll be interesting to see who Trump blames tomorrow ... The Washington Post, Steve Bannon, Mitch McConnell?

The next fight will be over whether Mitch McConnell seats Doug Jones in time to vote on the tax bill. Today he said he'd keep Luther Strange through the end of the session, but I assume Democrats will complain.
