Coattails (Wyandotte, MI)

Wyandotte, MI is over 90% White, very Democratic, very pro-Bernie, very polluted, and strongly pro-union. It also has had a declining population since the 1970s. It is precisely the type of place that’s likely to swing to Trump. Even though I didn’t think it’d quite go as far as going for Trump, go for Trump it did, probably because many of his voters there were not aware of his stance on right-to-work. And he (and Her) had massive coattails all the way.
Clinton’s negative coattails on Dingell were even larger than Trump’s positive coattails on the GOP candidate for House!

Clinton was an absolute disaster for downballot Dems. Most traditionally Dem voters who went #NeverHillary didn’t even come out to vote Dem downballot. Sad!
