James Thompson lost, but Nate Cohn doesn’t get it
Nate Cohn thinks that James Thompson, doing better than expected against the Republican (although not good enough to win), means that the voters are already rejecting Trump.
Nate just doesn’t get it. As I explained yesterday, the reason why James Thompson is popular is because he’s a white Army veteran who did a campaign ad where he shoots an assault rifle. And if you watch the ad, you’ll see that Thompson is genuine prole. The Democrats don’t have a bunch of people like that on the bench. They just have a lot of SWPL SJW types, a lot of minorities, not the kind of candidates who will win back the blue-collar white voters who went over to Trump.
