Conservative commentator Rush Limbaugh mocked the "new media narrative" that interprets the Democratic gubernatorial victory by Ralph Northam in Virginia as representing an anti-President Donald Trump wave.

In remarks on his daily radio show Thursday, Limbaugh insisted Trump would win the general election by a wider margin today than he did last year.

"[T]he new media narrative . . . is [that] the Republicans are finished, that the Virginia vote means everybody's tired of Trump, fed up with Trump, embarrassed by Trump, and it's over," he said.

"And it doesn't mean that at all. It doesn't mean anything."

Virginia "does not translate to other states," he declared.

"And yet the Drive-Bys, all they can talk about is the wave of resistance against Trump that swept so many Democrats into office . . . a virtual tsunami."

Limbaugh pointed to a Morning Consult poll that showed 82 percent of those who voted for Trump would do it again, while 78 percent of Hillary Clinton voters would cast their ballot for her again.

"This is why all of the polls show that Trump would win if the election were held today," he said, adding, "But what these two numbers mean in the . . . hypothetical election that would happen today, Trump would win by a wider margin nationwide if the election were held today."
