1) The exit polls--to the extent they can be believed--are telling us a lot.

2) First, Republicans did better with blacks in TX (Abbott +18).

3) Second IMMIGRATION is a major issue that favors Rs, border control, and the Wall. We have a majority of Hispanics supporting everify
4) Rs are losing suburbanites/Millennials. No we cannot hide our head or act like they don't matter anymore.

5) This is overwhelmingly a messaging problem, not an "issues/positions" problem. Tax cuts and jobs will not work as a message. Those issues MUST be presented differently
6) Yes, there was fraud in FL. But fraud did not cause Ted Cruz to run 8 points behind Greg Abbott, or Martha McSally to run 10 points behind Doug Ducey, or Jim Renacci to run 8 points behind lacklluster Mike DeWine.

7) This is a messaging/marketing problem.
8) Rs have the right issues. We have the better positions. But there is a chasm of how those issues and positions are presented to Millennials.

9) Above all Rs need sincere, genuine candidates who can speak to Millennials in their language.
10) To some degree, Millennials will give you tremendous latitude if you frame issues they way they want to hear them.

This explains the disconnect between Ds who vote against their constituents on big issues (Tester, Manchin) yet continue to win. They message on a lower level
