There have been 4 special elections since Trump took office. In each election the left predicted victory based on what they perceived was hatred of President Trump by ordinary Americans. Each of the 4 Democrat candidates was well financed and received support from the national party. And each and every race was viewed and touted by Democrats as a referendum on Donald Trump.

And Democrats lost all 4 elections.

Democrats again failed to grasp that more people dislike them.

Democrats painted themselves as the anti-Trump party. Problem is, that message doesn't get the vote outside the base.

When Handel won in Georgia ,she thanked President Trump. There was major applause foe Trump, much more than everyone else Handel thanked.

.
Not in GA06

Not remotely true.

2016 Edit
Georgia's 6th Congressional district election (2016)
Party Candidate Votes %
Republican Tom Price* 201,088 61.7
Democratic. Rodney Stoolsbury 124,917. 38.3%

2017 Special

Handel 51.9%
Ossloff 48.1%

Handel's 51.9% was the lowest R winning percentage in a general election in GA-6 since Newt was first elected back in the late 1970's.

Ossloff raised and spent more than Handel, but PAC attack ads on Ossoff helped close the gap. It all depends on what you count whenb you make a comparison.

Incorrect.

You are comparing it to a incumbent race. I'm not. I'm comparing it to how Hillary Clinton did in that district. Handel doubled the difference.

Nope. These are the totals. It's a very embarrassing loss for the Democrat party, the corrupt MSM, and the Hollywood elite.

Sorry you hate your country.

I don't.

The country is smarter than the idiots pushing the silly Russian narrative would like to believe. The elections yesterday prove it.
