It's a given that the blundering dope in the White House will mess up the economy with his brainless meddling. Trump won't have the Obama economy to prop him up like he had during this midterm, so 2020 is looking ripe for the picking.
I wouldn't count on those three states staying blue based solely on last night's results. They could go blue with the right candidate, but they could easily go red with the wrong candidate. The states that I would feel comfortable calling part of the blue wall aren't enough to win the presidency. IMHO the blue "wall" at this point consist of the Clinton 2016 blue states minus Minnesota, New Hampshire, and Nevada. That's only 212 electoral votes. The rest have to be strongly fought for, not just put on some guaranteed to win and so can be safely ignored list.
