Any big surprises last night? & What - if anything - did you takeaway from the results?


#1

I guess for me I thought Cruz would win by a larger margin in Texas, although the DNC poured a ton of Money into Beto. Otherwise it went as most thought it would as far as I can tell. not sure if there were any big takeaways that I could make out.

What do you think?


#2

No real surprises…I took away that Americans want a check on Trump. They want the house to keep him in check.


#3

I took away a total repudiation of Trump policies and a mandate to destroy them and him and return to the glory days of Benevolent Leader Barack.

Hold up! Hold up! Hold up!


#4

I was surprised that the three states that delivered Trump his victory (Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania) all elected Democrats for senate and governors. Seems like a big deal.


#5

Dems won the “popular vote” by 7%. The math just doesn’t work in some of the more “Deliverance” areas of the nation.


#6

Also seen no surprises. At least with the democrats winning the House, we can have a government that doesn’t just do whatever Trump wants.


#7

You’re coming along nicely.


#8

It is disappointing to see that voter suppression and borderline criminal behavior work so well in Georgia.


#9

disappointing but not surprising. We sent the federal marshals down there for a reason. Too bad a bunch of lunatics on the SCOTUS felt the South was capable of governing honestly again.


#10

No real surprises. Voting went pretty much as predicted, mixed bag for both parties. Blue wave turned out to be a blue flush, but it will serve as a check against the orange clown so I’m satisfied.


#11

Not a surprise at all, but nice to see Bundy child getting his ass kicked in the Nevada race for governor.

:smiley: None of the above gets more votes that Bundy child.


#12

No real surprises for me. Looks like those who were doing the polling were fairly accurate in most cases from what I can tell so far.


#13

It will still be a very uphill battle to put a check on him. Dems will need to fight like hell.


#14

Yep. Hopefully they’ll avoid screwing it up.


#15

No huge surprises but this is a big victory for Democrats. They took control of the house. That’s huge. Don’t let anyone spin last night as a disappointment for DEMS.

Takeaways:

  • Women, women, women. A lot of women were elected and a lot of women voted for Democrats.
  • DEMS made huge gains in important presidential states. Pennsylvania, Michigan, and Wisconsin. All states that Hilliary lost and gave Trump the win in 2016.

#16

That is pretty significant.


#17

I’m surprised that the Republicans are silent on that young lady Coterz out of NY being a socialist blah blah blah American value killer


#18

I’m wondering when it will be safe to come out of my bunker. I heard America would be destroyed if she got elected. I haven’t seen the first wave of destruction hit yet…


#19

Indeed.

There isn’t a doubt in my mind that Kemp stole that election.

A crime of massive proportions that he was allowed to keep his SoS job while running.


#20

No surprises if you’re a objective person who follows mainstream media. They got it right. Partisans on both sides seem surprised because partisanship is what, 60% analysis; 40% hope?
