When the mid terms and presidential election comes around, the left is going to have thank Trump. This idiot has awoken those who stayed away from the polls because they thought their vote wouldn't matter.

His constant embarrassing of a once proud country will make true Americans stand up and say enough is enough. They will say this country is for everyone and not just for a particular group of people who feels victimized just because they can't get their bigoted/racist way.

Trump has certainly done what conservatives blamed Obama for, he has divided (well actually allowed the minority to try an dictate what is good for the country) the country.

As long as Trump keep catering to that small minority, he will be destroyed next election and anyone with him will lose BIGLY.

I think the Republicans are in the process of losing the mid-terms on purpose. They have no more excuses and everything they're currently *not* doing are things they all ran on doing - repealing Obamacare, tax reform, border security.

So since they all said they would, and not just this past election, but for the past three cycles to take power and now have zero excuses to run on since they're in power, they're basically losing on purpose.

There's no reason to vote for them since they blatantly are not going to do what they say they will.

Of course, we all know Democrats will do what they say they will, but I have *zero* interest in any of the things they promise because they have none of the effects they say they will - that's where Democrats always lie.


I don't think intentionally but they will lose seats if they don't unify and get legislation passed.

The GOP is in disarray too, otherwise Trump would not have defeated so many other GOP Candidates on way to President.

Trump's biggest problem is that he is came to power on his own, without a core of elected officials who share his vision. Trump needs a class of new Representatives and Senators who follow his vision rather than the GOP. He needs batch similar to the Tea Party to cement his vision on the country and Party.

That will be hard as he will necessarily have to support some old School GOP Candidates and at the same time bring new "Trump Brand" candidates along. The GOP establishment won't go down without a fight as we have seen.

The GOP needs to unify around Trump rather than splinter because of Trump. He is the main reason the GOP is even relevant.

Neither of these states voted Republican in the general election, so why would they flip now?

They are Democrat strongholds with Republican candidates that were staunchly anti-Trump. This is the result everyone expected, but I love how the left is trying to turn this into some sort of major victory. I can't blame them for desperately wanting a win though.

How dare you regurgitate the exact same narrative the left used when people were celebrating the GOP's win in Georgia?

It's kind of funny because the liberal media were the ones making such a huge deal about the special elections held earlier this year. Did they even know what they were walking into?

Wow, those sentences sound terribly like Hillary Clinton and the Democratic party line.

Who was celebrating the GOP win in Georgia? As I recall the Liberal media outlets where making a big deal about the possible Democratic win there prior to the election and than had to walk back their enthusiasm when they lost using the narrative.

The right where just laughing at the left for the unforced error.

Georgia is what happens when you run a guy who doesn't even live in the district or have an actual job.

I never expected Virginia or New Jersey to go red. I am not sure why anyone did. I think the only surprise I see is that Norfolk and Virginia Beach went blue (partially), other than that - no surprise here - most city dwelling Virginians are swamp creatures.

New Jersey? When was New Jersey even remotely considered?

Virginia and New Jersey are becoming bastions of communism.


You know they won't vote your way when you call their areas "bastions of communism", right?

I don't think we're shifting left.

As a country we shift left for a while then right for a while. That's the natural flow of our countries politics.

For proof just look at our presidents. Clinton, Bush Obama Trump. That's just the way it goes.

This election was more about unlikeable people. Nobody liked Chris Christie. He would have lost to anyone this time. The transwoman won against a very unlikable guy etc.

The reason the left wants so much immigration (legal or not) is to gain voters (legal or not). We saw that during Hillary's run. As they say...interesting times we live in.

As cynicalheathen wrote, it really doesn't matter which of the dominant parties, Democratic or Republican, are in control. They are but two sides to the same coin. Republicans have pretty much slid off the right end, alt-right even. Democrats have morphed into a moderate Republican clone. That leaves no party representing the needs of the working class. The situation with the Democratic party is complex, split into two factions: progressives and corporates. A number of progressives won the other night; some were socialists. This is not the same as a communist, but many confuse the two. And for those who always bash socialism or communism for that matter, ask yourself what capitalism has done for you. American employs a mix of socialism and capitalism, but we call ourselves capitalists. However, our form of capitalism is flawed as it privatizes profits but socializes losses. It really doesn't matter how we pigeonhole our political system, what matters is how we live. And today, things are not so good for many Americans. A majority lives from paycheck to paycheck, or in poverty; while the upper class has taken nearly everything away from the middle class. The lower class never had anything to begin with, or the upper class would have taken that too.

That managed to hold that seat for 26 years. So clearly, despite being an abhorrent human being, he had a strong base. At least at one point.

He did have a strong base, but he's been really antagonistic, and unlikely lately. To be a strong candidate these days you have to have some kind of positive message. People want hope and a strategy for an improved life. Trump and Obama both won on that message.

Donald won on hope? I recall his campaign started on fear of Mexicans and he routinely had friends and family of victims of crime by illegal immigrants on stage at his rallies to push this fear-based angle. Then he claimed "I alone can fix it." His inaugural address this past January was about "American carnage."

That's the hopeful message you think Donald won on? He won on fear. Just like his Republican predecessors.

Look, I'm not a republican...or a democrat. You have to step back and look at things objectively. Of course there was fearmongering etc. All candidates do that, but all you have to do is look at his slogan. "Make America Great again>' No matter how you feel about it, that is a message of positivity and hope for the future.
