Even though the Republican Party looks set to squeak out a one-point victory in Ohio’s 12th congressional district, “Morning Joe” co-host Joe Scarborough says that the party shouldn’t celebrate barely hanging on to a seat that it has held easily for decades.
“Regardless of who ends up winning it, Republicans certainly know as well as Democrats, this is another race where Republicans have under-performed in a district that is deep, deep red,” he said. “Maybe Democrats have won it once since the 1930s.”
Scarborough said that President Donald Trump’s historic unpopularity at this point in his first term has been costing the GOP significant support in crucial suburban areas that have long provided the backbone for GOP congressional majorities since the 1990s.
“Republicans are bleeding so badly right now in suburbs,” Scarborough said. “And then you go north to Franklin County [Ohio] in the exurbs, they’re basically splitting it, holding their own, but losing a ton of a votes. This is a party, the Republican Party, that’s becoming more and more of a rural party.”

J.K. Rowling Just Mocked Donald Trump and Won Twitter
J.K. Rowling just won Twitter – heck, all of the Internet!
The Harry Potter novelist, and philanthropist, and activist is known for being outspoken on social media, and for her opposition to the American president.
Late Tuesday afternoon Trump posted a tweet, crediting himself for “having written many best selling books, and somewhat priding myself on my ability to write.”
He defended his strange capitalization usage, and attacked “the Fake News” which, he wrote, “constantly likes to pour over my tweets looking for a mistake.”
The correct spelling of the phrase is “pore over,” not “pour over.”
She wasn’t done.
There was still more:
The general consensus can be summed up by these two tweets:
