Not a bad night, I thought the dems would fall 3 or 4 seats short in the House but they took about 4 more than they needed (which will be a good thing that I will explain later). I thought the GOP would pick up one Senate seat but they got 3, which is really 6 when you account for the Liberal GOP Senators who will NOT be in Congress come January
Colorado was no shock, they went all in with the gay mafia years ago when they declared war on Christians and legalized recreational drugs; they are competing with California to be the most communist state so they can be expected to go as blue as we are from here on out.
Texas is the main shadow on the parade, I have been saying they would be blue in 10 years due to the illegal immigration strategy that their Leftists are employing (pioneered and proven in California) but after yesterday I am thinking 5 years is all Texas has left; Beto should have never been in that race.
Had the GOP held the House with just a few seats to spare it would have crippled the Presidents agenda and ruined 2020, there are just too many Socialist Republicans who would have stopped anything good.
But now the Democrats are screwed, they won by playing the “blue dog” lie in red districts but they did not win enough seats to protect the lie. That means their freshmen will have to break all their promises to keep Nancy happy or side with Trumps agenda to keep their seat; Nancy does not have enough seats to “let them off the hook” like the old days.
Practically speaking the House was going to be problematic regardless of which Party eaked out a majority but this way the democrats will get all the gridlock blame.
Picking up those Senate seats is HUGE, the Senate is a statewide election so gerrymandering cannot hide the mood of the electorate; we basically have now had 2 elections where Trump has won the people.
Congratulations to Trump since he was the only one fighting for this, a lot of extreme Leftists in the GOP swamp have been removed and the judiciary is safely on its way to integrity.
I expect some pleasant surprises from the lame duck congress on their way out the door as well.
Watching Trump handle Pelosi will be a joy after I watched Pelosi run over Boehner and Bush, I am looking forward to the next 2 years
