The Blue Wave did happen, it's just Republican flood gates were up full. The Republican Senate wins seem to take the wind out of the sails, but when you look at actual *vote* count it tells a different story. Senate popular vote: Democrats: 40,558,262 (55.4%) Republicans: 31,490,026 votes (43.0%) The American electoral system is truly broken when the party with the *least* amount of votes wins the election.

i expected this a long time ago....the reason is simple.....GERRYMANDERING.....republicans have gerrymandered so much that we cant win most seats even though more people support us......and redistricting is done once in ten years next time in 2020....so this is like a giant firewall....even though democrats showed up in high numbers the seats they won were few because of gerrymandering

The Republicans have controlled all three branches of government for two years, and all they accomplished is a massive tax cut for 1%ers. From Trump's viewpoint, Dems winning the House is good - now he has someone to blame for everything.

Check out the Houston’s Harris County judicial races - ALL 59 FLIPPED, and all 19 black women who ran were elected! 🎊An ousted and already checked-out and bitter Juvenile Court Judge was literally dismissing *every* case today, simply asking “Are you not a murderer? Ok, you can go.” Yeah Houston! 🎉And woohoo for Lizzie P. Fletcher beating incumbent John Culberson! 🙌 I’m sad about Beto, but excited for Houston and my District. 🤩 Beto has a bright future and a ton of enthusiastic, devoted supporters here in Texas and fans across the country - we’ll see what 2020 brings! 😎

I'm so happy that WI is one of those states that had the Dems won. We tried to get Scott Walker(R) recalled in 2012, then he got re-elected in 2014. And he did have a strong run against Tony Evers'(D). It was literally a 49% to 49% for a lot of it, finally Evers pulled ahead enough to win. YAY!

Trump and the Republicans planned on firing Sessions if they lost the House. He's now forcing the Democrats to try to impeach him (which means nothing). He wants that to help inspire his base for 2020. Firing Sessions was Trump's way of launching his 2020 campaign. Too bad Democrats and the media missed that…

The only rational party NOW is the Democratic Party. The Republican party is compromised and has no moral standing. So Democrats, you should not let up. There’s still 2020. Independents, you are the biggest group of voters. Your choice is actually one choice if you want to retain democracy. Vote Democrats in 2020 so that Republicans will be forced to reform itself.

There are two grass root causes for Trump's success. Mass misinformation from Fox and gerrymandering. Not sure what we can do about commentary shows that pretend they are news channels, but gerrymandering can be fixed.

Sorry, I don't fully understand the workings of US politics - why is it that we have never seen Trump in the parliament defending his policies? In my country, the leader presents a bill to the parliament where it is debated by the entire house from both parties. There is also _Question Time_ where the whole parliament questions the Prime Minister who has to defend their decisions and policies. We see this on tv every night. The same thing doesnt happen in US? I only ever see Trump and other politicians attacking each other via press conferences - but where do they parliament?

He posted a slow motion close up clip that make it look worse than the video here, but was still just him putting his hand on her arm then pushing it down. He called it a karate chop!!! Snowflake!

The blue wave crashed over my home state of Michigan, winning the Governorship, the Attorney General for the first time since 1998, and the Secretary of State for the first time since 1990, as well as two new House seats. We also passed marijuana legalization, an independent redistricting panel, and a voter’s bill of rights that includes straight-ticket voting, same day registration, and no-excuse absentee ballots. Overall a great night for the Dems and a great night for democracy.

Good for Colorado, Missouri, Michigan and maybe Utah. Sam has talked about 2010 as a big year because it was a census and potential redistricting year. Well, guess what? 2020 is the next census/redistricting year. If Democrats aren't already working toward the next election, they need to be. I know people are probably a little hung over from the election that ended two days ago, but voters HAVE to be reminded/made aware of this issue. It might be the most important one of the next election, because it has the biggest impact on every other issue that will come up.

Here's an easy way to get seats for the senate without gerrymandering. The votes aren't tied to the area or seat. Each person who wants to get a seat are separated based on party into different seats instead of districts. Then each district votes on who gets each seat. That way the actual majority wins the vote instead of manipulated lines.

Apparently, Rep. Pelosi has not learned that the Republicans never bargain in good faith: They will ask for compromise when they will not make any concessions. If she does this form of bipartisanship, she will have won the Republicans the House and a second term for Trump.

Now, something you may begin to notice, most, but not all Trump supporters, start to use his talking points, and twitter rants almost verbatim. Notice his words have such anger an fear underneath. Which means his supporters don't have control over their own thought processes, but Trump surely does. This is especially true of online commenters. Now for conservatives who value their freedom of speech, it's odd to see them mimic him so quickly, easily and openly. Which means they have easily, noticeably and effectively given up their autonomous thinking. Now they can say goodbye to their individual thoughts. As Trump welcomes them to the Trumpian borg. Now they are the collective MAGA. Trump has grabbed them by their reptile brain an he ain't letting go until he is done using them. And using them up. Now as you stop and think you may start to understand why the idea, or the symbol of the border wall works so well for them, the fear and anger attached to it is a hot button, one he pushes to simply, easily and naturaly control them. Now Is this the kind of leader we want for our president in 2020? We deserve better.

In 2020 math of senate seats available means Dems will take Senate back; they'll increase control of House, so Congress will be Blue. WH will go to Dems, but Supremes will remain right-wing; two outta 3 ain't bad. thus, real fight is between Establishment and Progressive Democrats; either will triumph over Trump, but which way will Dems go..?
