Media overplaying Tuesday's Democratic election wins

Virginia is densely populated in the areas just outside of Washington, D.C., one of the most liberal cities in the U.S., and that plays a huge factor in any of its state-wide elections. Viewing any of those races as a reflection of what the country is doing at large is like watching a single segment of Chris Cillizza’s analysis on CNN and concluding that all political commentators must have whiny little voices.

And yet that’s how MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough saw it between segments where he and his fiancé and co-host Mika Brzezinski take turns squinting at different angles into the camera.

“I do believe that next year may be the year of ‘women voters and women candidates,’ because I heard stories of women standing in the rain in Northern Virginia in long lines, and they weren’t going to move until they got their vote against Donald Trump,” Scarborough said Wednesday.
