“You reap what you sow.” It’s a broad principle of life, and we’re seeing it play out now in the wake of the midterm elections. Since his campaign, Donald Trump has pushed hard against women and Democrats. Now there are more women in Congress than ever before and the Democrats have taken the House. As a political science professor of mine once said, “The electorate bounces.” Undoubtedly, we are seeing the electorate’s elasticity in action. So begins a season of payback. For the next two years, President Trump will reap the fight he’s sown.
The Electorate Bounces
