    Winning by 2 points where they won by 12 two years ago, is NOT good news for Republicans.
    1) President Donald Trump won this seat by 12 points in 2016. Mitt Romney won it by 10. A Democrat hasn't represented this area in Congress since the 1960s.
    2) There are 34 seats currently held by Republican incumbents where Trump won by less in 2016 than he did in North Carolina's 9th.
    3) National Republicans will not be able to spend multiple millions next November to save every seat with the political profile of the North Carolina seat.
    4) Republicans are only winning in the rural and low economic out put areas, ie; the under educated, more intolerant, less sophisticated, knuckle dragger areas. As the majority of Americans have seen the nations being run by knuckle draggers by a knuckle dragger President, but not for much longer.

    Isn't this gerrymandered to Republicans so completely that democracy is dead and buried with a Confederate flag sticking out of the ground at the gravesite? And all the Democrats do is just whine and complain and whine some more, and cry?
    Democracy does indeed die in darkness and shame on us for allowing that to happen.

    Leave it to trump supporters to brag about keeping a seat they held since the 60s and now only won by two points after they gerrymandered the shit out of the districts.

    This is just a taste of what's to come in 2020.

    This guy only won by 2 pts in a super red district. Republicans who are celebrating are too dumb to realize what just happened.

    How can Y'all vote in the party that CHEATED on the prior voting?? Is this result real?? How can we ever trust the results again.

    Funny how RADICAL policies are somehow just regular successful ideas in other counties – eg Australia enjoys Med4All, while Americans suffer extortionate Healthcare – pretty radical??
    Check out Andrew Yang if you want a President with heart – And he is NOT for open boarders which the RW has successfully brainwashed y'all to believe is the goal of all Dems.

    Is it okay to have that type of attitude when everybody around you feels the same way, but as soon as he walks into Washington he's going to see a whole different environment not just outside of the halls of government but inside the halls of government, he's going to get a tiny taste of what it feels like to be a minority.

    The GOP does nothing but lie and con people into believing tbey give a shit about Americans! Read some history folks! We already had to bail the elites out once, now another recession coming and tons of companies closing/ laying off! How far down do you folks need to go before you wake up?

    People in broken states like Illinois, California and New York keep voting in Democrats and wonder why their cities are crime ridden shitholes. If you want positive change in America vote Republican. Ignore the fascism from the left, don't let these violent children dictate reality.

    Another blue wave flushed down the toilet.:)
