The Wheelhouse: Municipal Election Results; The Trump Factor

Are there any lessons we can learn from last night? Probably not. The predicted trends, like “The Trump Effect” didn’t really emerge. The state was split between Republican and Democratic victories.

When people see an election that doesn’t go the way they think it was going to go, their natural reaction is to overcompensate to make sure that doesn’t happen again; we saw that (at minimum) in Greenwich last night. This week on the Wheelhouse, analysis of races from all over the state, and more.
