Morning Joe Panel Says Democrats Winning the House Was ‘a Decisive Moment’ for American Democracy

‘It shows our electoral institutions work’

RUSH EXCERPT:

ZIBLATT: “I think it turns out the midterm elections were really a decisive moment, it shows our electoral institutions work. With the election of President Trump, a lot of people feared we were on our way to Hungary or Turkey- single party control, certainly that is not the case.  But I think we’ve entered a new phase in our long simmering democratic crisis where we're in a situation where essentially have deadlock and dysfunction in increasingly institutional warfare, between the branches of government. So the checks and balances are working but, they’re not working as originally intended by our founders.”
