EAST PROVIDENCE, R.I. ( WPRI) -- This week on Newsmakers: A political roundtable with Darrell West of the Brookings Institute and Eyewitness News political analyst and pollster Joe Fleming.
A tsunami of Democrats helped push incumbent Congressman David Cicilline to victory. President Barack Obama's successful reelection bid helped Democrats in Rhode Island secure wins. West says key to Obama's win was the decision to go on the air early with political ads. Plus the changing demographics of the country and the challenge to pollsters.
