The returns were barely in before the postmortems to this election were already being written. Naturally, the mainstream news media have completely misread last night’s results, continuing to ignore the electorate’s contempt for the open borders dogmatism which has guided American elite opinion on the subject of immigration for the past five decades. Thankfully, the invaluable Daniel Horowitz has come forth to shed some much-needed light upon what happened on Tuesday. 

I doubt that new Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell will read his piece, but you should. It illuminates one of the most underreported and unappreciated political trends occurring in this country. Namely, the backlash against mass immigration among voters who should be the Republican Party’s most reliable constituents and supporters.
