ANALYSIS: What Handel's win and Ossoff's loss mean for Republicans and Democrats

ABC News' MaryAlice Parks breaks down the outcome of the special election.

As we have seen around the country, there is great distrust of Trump's negative polling numbers here. People say they are just wrong. And there's an overwhelming frustration with what they see as widespread media bias. The Russia probe? Crazy conspiracy theories, to many.

A lot of Republicans on the Hill come from districts with much slimmer margins and will take in Tuesday's results with an exhale instead of a cheer. As for their legislative agenda, they will probably chin up a bit. Handel's win validates their work as much as anything else.
