People are saying it wasn't a huge blue "wave". The Republicans have spent years building a giant "storm levy", made from appalling and abhorrent voter suppression, almost felonious gerrymandering, and even some voter fraud sprinkled in for good measure. The wave still managed to breech that levy by possibly 40 seats. It takes a tsunami to get over a giant levy like that.

Gerrymandering has to be undone, and made illegal. Pure and simple!

Dems should've had a much bigger win. I hate to break this to you folks. A significant portion of the US has always been racist. It may not have seemed that way for a while because racism was so stigmatized. Trump and his minions are making it acceptable to be racist again. Racism is going mainstream and the country is headed in a very dangerous direction. You're deluding yourself if you don't think that Trump has the potential to become an autocrat. The Republican party is basically a glorified cult. 

A Republican acquaintance just shared a false article claiming that Trump was a chess grandmaster who trained under Bobby Fischer and won several world championships. Dozens of this person's friends enthusiastically shared this post without question. These people are in a fucking trance and they're not going to break out of it anytime soon. Brace yourselves.

I'm baffled that the dems lost the senate again. Trump isn't going anywhere. The way I see it now: the US isn't 1 country anymore. It's 2 countries forced to live together.

Michigan went the extra step of passing proposals that banned gerrymandering and voter suppression in our state.
It's a shame that not all the states have the balls to offer their voters the choice on whether or not to protect the integrity of their own voting process.

The Senators that won through Gerrymandering should immediately be replaced with their opponents.

Given two years remaining, now his economic policies will show themselves, he will not be able to ride on President Obama's coat tails and claim it as his own, lies will not help now, it's time to show what you are capable of.

I'm not surprised Beto lost. He made it a real race and it never should've been that close. He should definitely run again for any office. Same with Stacey and Andrew. They should both dust themselves off and run again. She has a good claim that that kemp guy was rigging the election so maybe she'll take to the Georgia SC.

When it comes to legislation, the Democratic House majority win means that Republicans can no longer pass even a single bill unless Democrats agree to let them. The party leaders will control what gets to the floor in the first place. So consider the conservative legislative agenda dead — no more Obamacare repeal, no more huge tax cuts, no big cuts to Medicaid or food stamps. The Dems House majority will allow them to launch subpoena-powered investigations into the president’s finances, Russian interference, impeachment proceedings, Prevent Reps firing Robert Muller, administration ethics scandals, and they could even demand Trump’s tax returns. Trump's free ride with no congressional checks and balances has just ended .

Voter suppression and gerrymandering far far outweigh the margins in all these elections. The numbers of people denied the right to vote and disillusioned because of the giant hurdles are enormous.
