    An interesting look at this as its developing.

    Despite the press coverage early turnout is normal and with a normal split D and R.

    They see youth as being a potential key. Always a dangerous need as they are nothing if not predictable. Not too interested in races that are not preesidential and still turned off by the Bernie thing.

    I say watch the mushy middle (independants) as they ultimately decide all elections. That could mean trouble as they have a steep disapproval of democrat resistance tactics

    And as is increasingly true the only winners are the advertising/media companies on the recieving end of all the millions of political ad buckeroos.

    Looks like Democrats got control of the House and GOP holds Senate.

    The blue wave crested over the House, but not the Senate.
    Given the number of women who won house seats, it was more of a pink wave.

    Trump won't give them much attention, as none of them is a 10.

    Maybe if they let him grab their pussies.
    But they cant pass anything that matters.
    Its a damn shame for the economy but it will be easy to pin this on the snowflakes

    1. That would no doubt win his approval.
    2. No, not likely since the Senate would have to pass it as well.
    3. Yes, it is, and sure, as long as they're "liberal" snowflakes, Trump will have no trouble blaming the result on them.

    President Trump is only the 3rd President in the last 100 years to pickup seats in the Senate at the first mid-term.

    Tell me about that Big Blue Wave again.
