DEMOCRATS WIN Trump +5% seat FL #HD72 by a 7% margin. Yet another special election where Democrats moved the needle by double digits.

That is the third Red to Blue flip this year in special elections. The seat in a neutral environment leans Republican but will flip in this environment. This is the type of seat that will determine the majority in November. Democrats need to pick up a double handful of these types of seats assuming that they pick off most Republican-Clinton seats in November.
Given that it was a twelve point swing, this is useful information for November.
