Call it what you want, but this is the reality:
Democrats 9% more voter turnout
Democrats + 28-37 House seats to retake House majority
Democrats + 7 Governors
Democrats + 323 State legislature seats
Democrats + 6 State legislative chambers
Democrats Ballot measures decisive victories (essentially a blowout)

Republicans + 2-4 Senate seats

Call it what you want. I have my own word for it, personally.

It's funny how all of the partisan TV hosts on both sides think they won. It's good news wherever you turn the channel.

This is quite normal in 2010 the republicans flipped 63 house seats and flipped 6 in the Senate thanks to Obama. You haven't held the house in eight years.

As a Democrat, for me this is dissapointing . Always in mid--terms the president's party loses in average of 40-45 seats and Senate by 4-5 seats . Even the popular Presidents did . And here we were expecting a blue wave and we ended up losing more in the Senate than what we previously had, and only won in the HoR by half of what was expected . Dems need to change tactics .

No mention of Stacey Abrams? Certainly one of these hotly contested elections, and the closest we've come to a black woman governor. Not relevant?

If a country is so divided, eventually it becomes 2 countries just like Korea. North and south USA.
