    Yep. That's why Democrats failed so miserably.

    If you mean winning is overplaying your hand, yes.

    The Conservatives sure showed them libs by losing all three branches of Government!

    Obviously not. People who overplay their hand lose. Democrats didn't lose. Democrats won, and Democrats won "BIGLY"! 

    Who overplayed his political hand was Trump, like by believing that he was so beloved that smearing Arizona's favorite son wouldn't come back to bite him in his ginormous, orange, political @ss and lose him Arizona, like by actually believing that he could get Black voters to think he was on their side after a full-on decade of being blatantly racist against them, which started with his quixotic quest against Obama with birtherism, continued as he raged against kneeling at the National Anthem during football games as a peaceful protest against the wanton killing of Black people by police, continued further when he supported the White supremacist protestors in Charlottesville, continued further still when he decried Black Lives Matter (the takeaway being that Black Lives DON'T Matter to him), continued even further still through this whole past summer of rebuking them and denying any and all legitimacy to their political grievances after yet another Black American was murdered by police (even slowly over 8 minutes before everyone's very eyes), and continued right up through election day with all his numerous attempts at voter suppression of Black voters, all of which cost him Georgia. Trump is who overplayed his political hand, and it cost him two states that have been so red for so long that he never even imagined they would ever go blue, but they did because he overplayed his political hand, and with losing those two states, Arizona and Georgia, he lost the election.
