Democrat victories in elections yesterday have former President Obama in a hopeful mood after several years of bad news for Dems:
This is what happens when the people vote. Congrats @RalphNortham and @PhilMurphyNJ . And congratulations to all the victors in state legislative, county and mayors' races. Every office in a democracy counts!

I read it as a shot against HRC. The implication is that ppl did not come out to vote for HRC (because, of course, she was no Obama…)

Not it isn’t. It is directed towards Dems voters who didn’t vote because they thought HRC was a lock. You’re reaching. https://t.co/qh3Bj1Zqsr

Properly, your putative successor's humiliating defeat is what happens when the people vote, too. https://t.co/f2X7Ce12ET

It’s a little funny since so much of the ground Dems lost happened during Obama’s watch:
He seems to be happy that Democrats are making up some of the ground they lost when he was president. ??? https://t.co/qN9agNhpd2

And besides, who voted in all previous elections?
Those weren’t people voting in 2010, 2014 & 2016. https://t.co/sEjcFaylQx

So once again, a raging leftist dehumanizes anyone who doesn't vote democrat. https://t.co/ehbaSTd7BN

Who has been voting the past 9 years?? Dogs?

And November 8, 2016 is what happened when people voted. https://t.co/Mj3t1bhtaJ

Apparently the ex-prez doesn’t think “the people” voted in that election.
