    This seat is trending red, and, although his phrasing was weird, he clearly meant "your" as being a faux first person construction standing in for Haridopolos.

    The district was R+4 this election, and that is definitely a strong tilt (strong modifying tilt in this instance).

      Two elections do not a trend make. Obama was extraordinarily strong in 2008, and 2012 was just about neutral, on top of the fact that he wasn't campaigning in as many places. I don't think you can extrapolate a trend from that, taking the extenuating circumstances into consideration.
