[See NewsBusters for more.] On Wednesday's MSNBC Live, Errin Haines, editor-at-large of The 19th, a self-described "nonpartisan newsroom reporting at the intersection of gender, politics and policy," theorized with host Stephanie Ruhle that Democrats did not just defeat Republicans in Tuesday's Senate runoffs, but also voter suppression.
After former RNC chair Michael Steele theorized that Republicans lost because President Trump discouraged Republicans from voting with tales of systemic voter fraud, Ruhle expressed doubt about that idea, "I don't know about that. Erinn, would you agree President Trump and his antics are responsible for Democrats winning, or do you look to Stacey Abrams, who spent an enormous amount of time and effort with this extraordinary victory? I mean, it’s amazing what she's done."
