Another leadership test for Pelosi, who's weathered many

On abortion, where public opinion has been stable, Democrats have ditched their old attempts at moderation, undercutting the gains that secularization and the liberal turn on other culture-war issues should have naturally delivered them. RepublicanKaren Handel beat Democrat Jon Ossoff by about 5 percentage points.
But after the stinging defeats in SC and Georgia, Democrats and liberal pressure groups are searching for what went wrong. You can measure their disappointment by imagining the triumphalism we'd be hearing had Ossoff prevailed.
But beating the spread hasn't gotten Democrats any new seats in Congress.
"Defeating Republicans in districts that they have traditionally held requires doing something drastically different than establishment Democrats have done before - specifically, running on a bold progressive vision and investing heavily in direct voter contact to expand the electorate", he said. But to the extent that the Democrats use much of their energy bashing Trump, they are failing to connect with voters who aren't addicted to Beltway scandals.
Trump was quick to celebrate the Georgia win and accused Democrats of standing in the way of a legislative agenda bogged down by infighting and investigations into whether Trump's campaign colluded with Russian Federation in last year's presidential election. It is telling, however, that 95 percent of Ossoff's donations came from out of state sources. To come within a hair's breadth of winning that seat in a special election is nothing short of extraordinary.
And former Republican Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty said Handel's victory provides the GOP with a "huge relief and somewhat of a political sedative", CNN reported. "I don't think people are going towards the Democrats, and it's a problem, a big problem". That's not a winner's mentality.

Drew Hammill, a Pelosi spokesman, said she's done more than just raise money and that Pelosi is "without rival" as a legislative tactician.

"Look, they demonized Nancy in 2010, they demonized her in 2006". Seeing these results, Hillary may have thought they would bear fruit for her when Oprah endorsed her candidacy in 2016. We're used to that.
Despite the backlash from some Democrats, Pelosi still has a strong base of support within the party. And there are more Democrats in the United States than there are Republicans.
Under the circumstances, that sounds feasible, and Democrats have been staging protest rallies in those seven districts, often packing "town halls" to denounce Obamacare repeal efforts.
