All of the folks using these results to extrapolate 2018 or 2020’s results are being both silly and misleading.
Alabama saw 2.1 million voters turnout in 2016 to vote in the Presidential election, they saw 800,000 fewer voters last night. Basically 63% of Alabama’s number from 2016. Of course special elections always see low turnouts. No news there. That’s what makes them unreliable as a cause for jubilation of the Democratic side.
Democrats got lucky because Trump, Bannon and Moore caused a perfect storm of idiocy that even Alabamians couldn’t accept. That certainly won’t always be the case.
Let’s not get ahead of ourselves, folks.
