Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Sunday, December 17, 2017

Fresh off their victory in Alabama's special Senate election, Democrats now enjoy their largest advantage in congressional preference in nine years, according to the latest NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll, signaling a dangerous political environment for Republicans entering next year's midterm elections. Fifty percent of registered voters say they prefer a Democratic-controlled Congress, versus 39 percent who want Republicans in charge. The last time Democrats both held a double-digit lead and hit 50 percent on this question in the NBC/WSJ poll was September 2008, right before the party won the White House and picked up a substantial number of House and Senate seats.

Damn you are dumb. How on God's Green Earth did you ever figure out how to even use a computer?

Have you heard of the Google? NO? Here, let me show you how it works:

How many at the national level?

Told me I want to know donnie.

That makes six turnovers from Republican to Democrat in contested state House and Senate races so far in 2017 -- and 26 out of 35 races (at the state legislative and congressional level) in which the Democratic nominee has overperformed Hillary Clinton's showing last November. (Worth noting: Republicans have yet to flip a Democratic-controlled seat so far this year.)

I am sorry I was so harsh.

I really should not pick on the handicapped.

I am happy you found out what you wanted to know and that I was able to show you how to use The Google.

You are something else. There is only 1 national seat changed. Just like I said.
