PBS Analyst: If Dems Lose In Virginia, It'll Be 'Close to Civil War Within the Democratic Party'

EXCERPT:

With statewide elections on Tuesday in Virginia and New Jersey, the PBS NewsHour week-in-review segment strangely focused on Democrats for a change. Liberal analyst Mark Shields shocked PBS anchor Judy Woodruff by saying if Virginia’s Democratic candidate for governor, Ralph Northam, can’t defeat Republican Ed Gillespie with his alleged Trump baggage, there will be hell to pay:


MARK SHIELDS: I would say this, Judy. If, in fact, the Democrats lose on Tuesday in Virginia, that it will lead to — close to civil war within the Democratic Party.

JUDY WOODRUFF: Whoa.

SHIELDS: It will be — there will be reprisals between the Bernie — that Northam has run a very conventional, sort of cautious campaign, and that will be — and Bernie Sanders — Tom Perriello, the — his primary opponent on the other side, there will be questions that he had — the Democratic Party really didn’t stand — and 2016 all over again.

Pseudo-conservative analyst David Brooks tried to soften the blow by saying it was bad news for both parties, since Gillespie is running in part on sharp messages about immigration, like against the violent gang MS-13. But he agreed that a Northam loss would be a “gigantic warning sign” for the midterms:

RealClearPolitics shows a slight lead for Northam but at this point, anything can happen. I do know that my husband and I will do what we can to change that result.

Don't believe the polls, RCP uses the averages of the polling to come to their conclusion. If their averages are based on biased polls then they are biased too. Just get out and vote. Remember DJT was supposed to lose in a land slide according to polling.

Donald Trump is poised to lose in the biggest landslide in modern American history

Sure, there have been brief moments when the outcome seemed in doubt — when the FBI director called Clinton's handling of her emails while secretary of state "extremely careless"; when it looked for about a half-hour that Trump received a significant bump from the GOP convention. But for the most part, and especially in the month since the conclusion of the Democratic convention, the race has settled into a stable pattern, with Clinton running between 4 and 8 points ahead of Trump nationally and beating him in most, if not all, of the so-called swing states. Hence the conventional wisdom: Trump will lose.


Yeah he "lost" the popular vote thanks to the illegals in Mexifornia and Nuevo York.

Naturally I'm hoping Northam loses just because it would be best for Virginia.

But if it winds up creating an even greater rift in the Dem party, so much the better!
