Multiple election experts projected on Tuesday night that Republican Glenn Youngkin beat Democrat Terry McAuliffe in Virginia’s governor’s race in what many critics say is a backlash to far-left Democrat policies.

Dave Wasserman of the non-partisan Cook Political Report and Decision Desk HQ both have called the race for Youngkin, who is currently leading 51.1% to McAuliffe’s 48.2% with 95% reporting. Business Insider also called the race for Youngkin.

During the early morning hours on Wednesday, ABC News, NBC News, CNN, The Associated Press, The New York Times, and MSNBC called the race for Youngkin.

“Since Virginia went blue for Barack Obama in 2008, Republicans have been on a downhill slide, the pace of which quickened during President Donald Trump’s administration,” The Associated Press reported. “The GOP, which hasn’t won a statewide race in Virginia since 2009, saw its legislative majority melt away.”

Democrat President Joe Biden claimed on the world stage earlier in the day that McAuliffe was “gonna win.”

“We’re gonna win,” Biden said. “I think we’re going to win in Virginia.”
