So unless Trump miraculously loses in a landslide the Democrats are going to have trouble in the Senate again next time around.
    Not sure two is quite a few, but whatever makes you feel better. Like you've been told several times already, the map couldn't have been more unfavorable for the DNC - in fact historically it hasn't ever been worse. 2020 sees only 8 DNC seats up with 20 GOP seats - and if you thing "red" means "safe" then you haven't been paying attention tonight at all. And it doesn't matter - reality trumps your feels.

    Not sure if this has been posted yet, but Arthur Jones (the GOP candidate for Illinois's 3rd congressional district who also just happens to be a Nazi) will be defeated by his Democrat opponent.

    He received about 26% of the vote. 26% of people in that district (over 50,000 people) would rather vote for a literal Nazi than a Democrat.

    But I love that your only viable response now is to falsely claim lies. It's adorable when reality sweeps down on the deplorables.

    Why is Trump and the GOP so concerned about Trump's tax records becoming public? Asking for a friend.

    It is truly sad how far people will go when it comes to political tribalism.

    Although I bet the majority of them didn't know about the "Nazi" bit and just saw the "R."

    Maine is giving me a headache right now.

    Our Republican incumbent and his Democratic challenger are right now within a few hundred votes of each other. They've been passing each other all night.

    How many people think that "D" is worse than a nazi though? I've seen plenty of people trying to justify unite the right or give them moral equivalency.

    Another election and another governor in FL that I voted against.

    "Why is it that the folks who won the last election are so mad all the time?” Obama joked, referencing President Trump's election in 2016.

    “I mean, like, when I won the presidency, at least my side felt pretty good. It tells you something interesting, that even the folks in charge are still mad, because they’re getting ginned up to be mad."

    Elderly Republican voters in the mainland and panhandle versus younger and more diverse Democratic voters in the population epicenters of Tampa, Miami, and Palm Beach. Add in ye olde gerrymander and you have a perfect recipe for electoral hijinks!

    And that's the GOP for you. Deplorable to the end. Not a "nazi" - but a literal nazi. The GOP just needs to go, the sooner the better. Regroup and come back the way they were - leaders and policy advocates. Not tribalistic party over people/country idiots.

    I haven't seen a single incumbent GOP senator lose tonight, not one. Meanwhile the Democrats have lost seats they were expected to hold such as Florida (most likely) and Indiana, meanwhile they've lost Missouri and North Dakota as well (that puts the GOP at 3 seats btw not 2).

    Well my state is screwed. Manchin won, and it looks like a circuit court judge I voted for might win but literally everyone else lost. We even voted for an amendment to the state constitution against abortion.

    Guys, something crazy is looking to happen today. Utah is looking like it's going to legalize medical cannabis. Fucking Utah!
