Election lessons learned? Don’t count on it
Even as results poured in across Colorado and the country on Tuesday night, pundits tripped over themselves to interpret what lessons should be drawn from the election.
On the Democratic side, progressives called for even more liberal policies. Their moderate colleagues advocated a more restrained approach. Republicans claimed their message broke through and illuminated the path to victory in 2022 and 2024.
In truth, there is almost nothing to be learned from last week’s election. At least not much to help candidates hoping to win office next year.
