Results pretty much as I expected with the GOP holding the Senate and expanding the majority by at least 2 and up to 4 seats and losing the House.  Was much better than historical losses, especially when compared to the number of House seats lost by both Obama and Bush.  Obama lost 63 House seats and 6 Senate seats, Trump lost 26 in the House and willikely pick up 4 Senate seats.  And this with Democrat enthusiasm at an all-time high and the govt media complex and Hollyweird being all in for their lackeys in the Democrat party and the relentlessly negative coverage of Trump and the obfuscation of the great economy.  All in all not a bad result and pretty much confirms that Americans prefer divided government.  So four Dem Senate incumbents were defeated and only one GOP incumbent lost.  The map favored the GOP and it's even more favorable in 2020 so this is no surprise.  And all four incumbents voted against Kavanaugh and the only one that didn't and won was Manchin.

Assuming McSally (AZ) and Rosendale (MT) hang and win by far the best news would be that RINOs like Collins and Murkowski will no longer have the same influence they did when the majority was so small.  Especially since we no have Romney who I can assure you will be a RINO of the first order.

I hope and pray that the Democrats put Pelosi in the Speaker's chair.  That will help bigly in 2020, especially since we know they will nominate a left wing nut socialist.

So the mid-term had something for everyone to like and no doubt Trump is the happiest.  No blue wave.

Some notable losses and wins (for me anyway). 

In Georgia it looks like Kemp will hold on and win but it should be a wake up call that it was this close, especially given the many flaws of Abrams.  Had the Democrats nominated a moderate I have no doubt he or she would have won.  And in my district Karen Handel lost after having gotten Ossoff off my lawn.  Bet he regrets not running again.  

In Florida both the Senate and the Governor races were won by the GOP which surprised me given the polls and the number of blue staters that moved there.  Was a resounding yes to no state income tax which other than the weather, is why so many people move there.

While Democrats made some gains in the Governorships it was nothing compared to what was predicted and I am sure Iowa, Florida and Ohio are bitter pills to swallow.

Really enjoyed Cruz beating Beto in Texas, especially given the guy had a $40M war chest.  Now the left wing nut Hollyweird libtards want him to run for President.  Please listen to them Beto!!!

Certainly wasn't the overwhelming win that Dems have been predicting, so it wasn't the overwhelming condemnation against Trump.  He'll have a grand time with Nacy pelosi, who is possibly one of the stupidest women alive.

I really, really hope the Democrats are stupid enough to give her the Speakership. And I hope they do nothing but investigate Trump because that will be a big factor in 2020 when Independents will repel at their wasting time.

Its all they have - Tax returns and Russia Collusion.  If they do not, they are just going to piss off the demonrat base.  I do not see them coming to the middle to get anything done for anyone.

Which in some ways may be a good thing.  Rarely does Congress do much that is good and on those occasions when they do, it's usually to undo something that they passed that turned out to be a disaster.

or they did something good by mistake and will undo it later.

As expected votes for Abrams are magically appearing.  Kemp lead now down to 50.3%.  Rumor has it Al Franken is on his way down with more votes in his trunk.

Nancy Pelosi is one of the most annoying and offensive women alive, but she is NOT stupid and anybody who thinks she is had better rethink their opinion!

Typical that a Rethuglican would call "counting" all the votes legally cast as "finding" votes.  If Kemp weren't such a biased redneck  Trump fanny kisser who has done a great job of suppressing the vote, there would be LOT more  legally cast votes to be "found"!!

Sure hope Martini voted for the winner Democrat Lucy McBath.

This is the same district that a former Representative Dr.Tom Price turned out to be a crook when he was Sec of Health and resigned. Newt Gingrich also represented the district. Now that the Left contols the 6th, we will have  honest and fair representation of all the residents.

Al Franken, where are you man?  Get stopped on your road trip to GA for sexually harassing some waitress at a Cracker Barrel????  So with 98% of the precincts reporting Kemp is at 50.33%, well above the threshold for a mandatory recount.  Will Abrams concede?  Can they find 60,000 votes in the last 2%?!?!?

Apparently MM is too dense to understand that Abrams and her camp are not thinking of overcoming Kemp's lead but of counting ALL the legal votes because that is the way it is done in a free society and with the hope that once that is done Kemp's percentage of the total vote, while still higher than her's will never the less be under 50% thus triggering a runoff!  It ain't rocket surgery MM!

Don't you recognize an Archy Bunkerism when you hear one?

Didn't take you for a "mixed metaphor" type of guy.  Also, didn't know you were an Archie Bunker aficionado.  But, as Yogi said, "You can observe a lot just by watching."
