Trump's suburban crash drags House GOP down with him

In only four years, a crescent of Atlanta's northern suburbs has swung from a safe, iconic Republican House seat to a near-lock for Democrats -- a startling shift illustrating how far President Donald Trump and his party have fallen in the suburbs before the 2020 election.

Democrats poured money into a nationally watched special election for Georgia's 6th Congressional District in 2017 and lost by 4 points a seat Republicans won handily for decades. Then, Democrat Lucy McBath eked out a win a year later. Now, as private polling showed McBath with a double-digit lead -- and Joe Biden up by a similar margin -- Republicans quietly chose not to spend money trying to win it back in the closing weeks of the election.

Every indication says this will be repeated across the country.

"You cannot overstate the revulsion that many middle-class women have for Donald Trump," said former Rep. Martin Frost (D-Texas), who once led his party's campaign arm."

The meaning: this will affect the state wide presidential and Senate races as well.
