Eugene Robinson: "This Is Shellacking, The Sequel"

|

EUGENE ROBINSON, WASHINGTON POST: This whole evening really is shellacking, the sequel. I said earlier on NBC when before all these numbers came in that I wasn't sure it was a wave. No, this is a wave. You lose the Maryland governor's race, you lose in states where you shouldn't be losing. And so it's more than just I think the referendum that Republicans wanted on President Obama or on the way you feel about things right now because the Democratic party comes out of this looking tired and almost exhausted. And I think it's a real mistake for Democrats to assume that in 2016 they can so easily recreate the coalition that President Obama created in 2008 and 2012 and energize and fire up minorities and women and younger voters in that very special way. They might not be able to do that.
