All in all?
A split decision ….
Republicans hold on and get some gains in the Senate….
Don’t do as bad in the Governorships…
But Trump has to see Nancy Pelosi ‘s gain and Democratic majority in the House as a n addition pain for a President that has been under constant attack on many fronts…
Will the Democratic House moderate him?…
Will he seek to make deals with Democrats that could hurt his party people?
Make no mistake?
GOPer’s have problems festering….
The losses in the House underscore weakness developing for Republicans with women, independents and the suburbs….Democrats raised a TON of money and will contiune to do so…The media isn’t gonna go away either.
And Republicans seem to be even more tied to Trump, who is about HIMSELF and not the party ….
Pelosi is still smiling this morning for sure, on her way back to becoming Speaker of the House and the leader of the Democratic opposition in Congress (Minority Leader Dem Chuck Schumer has to wait another 2 year’s before he gets control of the Senate, which he will)…
She is gonna have a hell of a time steering her shop thru rough waters riled by a party that is divided in home they want to go forward….
Gonna be a TON of stuff coming out over what this vote means and will accomplish for the country…
And Robert Mueller is still snooping around folks…
Democrats seized control of the House on Tuesday, a major setback for President Donald Trump and the conservative, anti-immigration agenda he brought to Washington two years ago.
But Republican victories in the Senate and across the South stanched Democrats’ broader gains, exposing limitations of the Democratic Party’s reach on the cusp of the 2020 presidential campaign. While House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) heralded the result as ushering in a “new day in America,” persistent schisms in the American electorate remained largely unchanged.
In an election marked by startlingly high early turnout and long lines on Election Day, Democrats made new inroads into America’s suburbs — gaining governorships in Kansas, Illinois, Michigan and New Mexico in addition to the House majority.
But in a bitter disappointment, Democrats fell short in swing-state gubernatorial contests in Ohio and Florida. They lost battleground Senate races in Indiana, Missouri, and North Dakota, with other losses possible if not likely.
The outcome deflated progressive activists who had desperately hoped for more.
“This is heartbreaking,” the liberal activist Van Jones said on CNN.
Though the president’s party has historically suffered midterm election losses — as Obama-era Democrats did in 2010 — the results on Tuesday were especially bruising for Republicans who saw their grip on the suburbs slip further away. Despite their losses in high-profile contests, Democrats were expected to cut into Republicans’ advantage in the nation’s governorships….
