There are traditionally democratic voters who went with Trump in 2016. In Missouri, one state house district that went to Trump in the Presidential election flipped back to democrats.
(The Huffington Post) Democrats flipped a Missouri state House seat Tuesday, marking the 35th seat that has changed from red to blue since Donald Trump became president.
So what happened? We are calling this the Michael Moore factor. Michael Moore predicted in 2016 that many working class democrats would vote for Trump. He also predicted that when Trump did not meet their expectations, they would abandon him.
Maybe this is what is beginning to happen as demonstrated in this Missouri State House race. 2018 will be an interesting year to watch voter behavior in the age of Trump.
