These Once-Solid Democratic Districts Aren’t So Safe Anymore.   (Morning Consult, 6/12/2017)
Trump won Rep. Tim Walz’s district by 15 points in an election where Clinton performed 11.2 points worse than Obama in 2012. Obama, who won the South Minnesota district with 51 percent of the vote in 2008, underperformed himself four years later, as Republicans upped their share of the vote.
