Will Democrats snatch defeat from the jaws of victory?

Here I am (center) canvassing for Lauren Underwood in Wauconda, Ill., with Indivisible on Oct. 27.

Dreams can come true. Democrats won big time in the 2018 midterm elections. As votes are still being counted, Democrats flipped a stunning 39 seats, seven governorships — including in the perennial red state of Kansas and the swing state of Wisconsin. The Ds also won hundreds of down-ticket statehouse races. They won the popular vote by 7 percent. A dreamy blue wave came to life.
