Several media commentators from both sides of the aisle are blaming former president Donald Trump for Republicans performing more poorly than expected in the midterm elections. Conservative commentator Scott Jennings from CNN said, “There’s a potential narrative out of this night that if you’re a discerning Republican voter trying to figure out the future, direction of this party, we once again learn that Trump is not a national winner for the Republicans.” Former White House Press Secretary for the Biden Administration Jen Psaki tweeted, “So [D]ems have a Florida problem, but Republicans have a [T]rump problem [t]hat seems harder to solve.”
