NJ seems like a tailor made state for the new Democratic coalition.
Lots of educated upper class whites + lots of minorities + in a socially liberal region of the country.
If Cruz or a typical conservative was on the ballot he would have done even worse than Trump here, probably shockingly worse (e.g., Hillary by 65-35 margin). Trump probably fared a little better because he doesn't come off as a homophobe or war monger. But nevertheless, it's a democratic state with a growing minority population.
Dude, your coalition can't contain a group that you LOST, haha.
