By Richard Eskow / AlterNetNovember 13, 2017, 11:11 AM GMT  …If you’re a Democrat, there’s a name for that unfamiliar emotion you were feeling last Tuesday night. It’s called happiness. But there is a serious risk that the party will draw the wrong lessons from last week’s results.

Here are seven important lessons from the November 7 results that a lot of Democrats seem to have missed.

1. It’s too easy to fall for spin, or for easily digestible but misleading narratives.

.2. Hatred of Trump won’t save the Democrats.

3. A Berniecrat would also have won in Virginia.

4. New Jersey was a progressive win.

5. The left won big in other races, too.

6. The base is critical to victory—and it wants to move left.

7. The left has shown the struggling Democrats a way forward.
