    "Washington (CNN)North Carolina state Sen. Dan Bishop will defeat Democrat Dan McCready in the North Carolina 9th District's special congressional election, CNN projects, giving Republicans a narrow victory in the GOP-leaning district where President Donald Trump won by 12 points in 2016."
    Republican Dan Bishop projected to narrowly win closely watched North Carolina special congressional election - CNNPolitics

    This is the smallest winning margin for this district since before the turn of the new millennium. The Repubs won it by 35 percentage points in 2014 and 2016.

    Cut him some slack, he is just parroting what his talking points emails tell him to post. I doubt he could find NC on a map

    Can you show that the military vote was significantly more Republican this time around in this area?
    What proportion of military members have votde for each party in past election in this district?
    And just to clarify, you didn't just pretend that the Republican "wiped out" the Democrat in the general vote by a 2% margin, did you?
    I assume you were referring to the military vote with the Wipeout thing. Please confirm.

    I wonder if it might be considered gloating to note that N Carolina's 9th district is 65% urban and one in which the Democrats maintain an 8-point voter registration advantage and that Trump - who carried it by 12 pts - was not on the ballot?

    North Carolina special election: Democrats have a chance in a heavily Trump district - CNNPolitics
    "And let there be little doubt: Trump's name may not be on the ballot, but a lot of this election is about him."


    In the end the Repubs carried a "heavily Trump district" where Dems hold "an 8-point voter registration advantage." The question is how did Trump win such a district by 12 points in 2016?

    The 9th District has been held by the Repubs since 1963.

    But the Dems have not enjoyed an 8-pt voter registration advantage since 1963 and never before had anti-Trump voters to motivate Dems. So how do you explain away Bishop's victory and how do you read it's significance? :lol:
