Donald Trump stunned the nation in the 2016 election by flipping Pennsylvania, Michigan and Wisconsin from blue to red. There are indications that this wave could even flood into true-blue Minnesota.
The Washington Examiner reports:
Red-state tide could flood into Minnesota
One of the most underreported stories of this year’s election cycle was how darn close the race finished in Minnesota for Donald Trump.
The president-elect did not win the North Star State on Election Day, but he was 44,000 votes shy in a state he was supposed to lose by a predicted 8 percentage points.
That near-miss shows how red Minnesota has become and illustrates how much the entire Great Lake Rust Belt has changed. Wisconsin, Indiana, Ohio and Pennsylvania all flipped their support from President Obama to Trump.
Underreported, too, is how muscular the Republicans have become in the state legislature. The GOP expanded its Minnesota state House majority and won control of the state Senate for the first time in six years.
Minnesota is definitely on the same path that Wisconsin was in 2009 when Reince Priebus took over as state party chairman, explained Brad Todd, a Republican strategist and founding partner of OnMessage.
If this were to happen, liberal heads would explode.
If Trump keeps his campaign promises, it just might.
