The polls and the election went Katie's way.

G.O.P. Squirms as Trump Veers Off Script With Abuse Remarks.  (The New York Times, 2/10/2018)
Far less visible are Republican lawmakers such as Representative Mimi Walters of California, who is facing a difficult campaign in an Orange County district where lobbing rhetorical bombs at the F.B.I. will do little with her centrist constituents but drawing attention to Disney’s bonuses could bear fruit. 

Trump received 44.4% of the vote in 2016 compared to 54.8 for Romney in 2012 and 51.0% for McCain in 2008.

Clinton received 49.8% of the vote in 2016 compared to 43.0% for Obama in 2012 and 46.0% for Obama in 2008.
