    Probably the most highbrow podcast. By far.

    OK I have only listened to the first part of the podcast. As regards James Hohmann’s comments about the results I wonder if we continue to see Donald Trump as the shiny object to focus on and as the reference point for all conclusions. With that we mix in our perspectives on Trump the person (divisive, undisciplined, harsh etc( and make conclusions,

    And yet Barack Obama lost 63 seats in 2010. Did we conclude then that his reasoned rhetoric or his judicious responses were the source of his House losses? Maybe the person of Donald Trump and the 2018 midterm result are less connected than we believe. 

    Don’t get me wrong, I very much dislike Donald Trumps style and some of his policies but I think we have to maintain some historical perspective and resist the temptation to ascribe everything to Trump.
