Donald Trump is the only modern American president to never release any of his tax returns — either while running for president or during his time in office. He’s offered a series of explanations for why that is, including that he is under audit by the Internal Revenue Service and that his taxes are too complicated for anyone to understand. At his town hall with NBC in early October, though, Trump inadvertently revealed a whole lot about his tax returns to moderator Savannah Guthrie.

In other words, a Democratic landslide could be coming. CNN’s Chris Cillizza explains how this potential wave will crash hardest — and with the most impact — at the state legislative level.
