Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Wednesday, November 28, 2018

Republican Sen. Cindy Hyde-Smith will win Mississippi's US Senate runoff election, CNN projects, in a contest that centered on her actions and comments evoking the state's dark history of racism and slavery. Hyde-Smith will defeat Democratic challenger Mike Espy, a former congressman and agriculture secretary, in the last Senate race to be decided in 2018. Her win on Tuesday means Republicans will hold 53 seats to Democrats' 47 seats in the Senate in January. The GOP grew its majority in the Senate by two seats in this year's midterm elections even as Democrats took control of the House.

The Trump Drag™ hits again.

What was regularly a 20 point win will end up under 8%.

It was a wave, Spork. It wasn't a tsunami but it was certainly a blue wave. Democrats won this round. It wasn't a blowout but it was a solid win. The Senate was never in play due to the amount of Democrats who were up for re-election relative to the number of Republicans.

'Blue Ripple'? - #6 | Posted by Spork at 2018-11-28 01:30 AM

Here's spork's idea of a 'Blue Ripple':

🌊 Democrats won control of the US House
🌊 Republicans Suffer Worst House Defeat in U.S. History Based on Popular Vote
🌊 Democrats national lead in raw House votes broke the record for largest vote total in the history of midterm elections
🌊 Democrats earned 53.1 percent of the overall vote in House races while the Republicans earned only 45.2 percent
🌊 Democrat's vote margin bigger than Tea Party's in 2010.
🌊 Democrats received over 61,000,000 votes (Republicans received 45,000,000 in 2010)
🌊 Biggest GOP loss since the Watergate mid-term election in 1974
🌊 Republicans lost 323 state legislative seats (367 since Trump took office)
🌊 Republicans lost 7 governorships, including key 2020 Midwest states in PA, WI and MI.
🌊 6 state legislatures flipped control from GOP to Democratic (7 since Trump took office)
In Orange County, California, what was once known as Reagan Country, there are 6 Congressional Districts:
Before November 6th, the GOP held 4 of the 6
🌊 Now, Democrats hold all 6 seats
In New England, the place where the expression "rock-ribbed Republican" was created:
🌊 Democrats hold all 21 Congressional seats
🌊 11 of 12 US Senate seats are held by Democrats (or independents who caucus with Democrats)
In the races for the US Senate:
Republicans defended 9 seats and lost 2 (a 22% loss rate)
🌊 Democrats defended 26 seats and lost 4 (a 15% loss rate)

So did Fox, CBS, NBC, MSNBC, ABC, Politico, Axios, Washington Post, New York Times, and every daily newspaper in Mississippi, among other outlets.

You need to get out more often.

Racists need to remember one thing, in 2020 Republicans will be defending far more Senate seats than they had to in 2018. Republicans could lose both houses and the Presidency in 2020. Likely they will because Trump's economy is beginning to collapse. GM really pissed him off, he can't stand it that they are planning for the future. He made promises because he didn't care if there were any facts to back them up and naive workers believed him. I feel sorry for them, I honestly do.

In the 2014 "red wave" the republicans gained 13 seats in the House. If that was a wave then the 40 seats gained by the Democrats is a tsunami

It was the largest wave in history. Call it what you want doesnt matter. What matters is it is the Peoples House. Sporky will realize how badly how "team" lost come Jan 4.

Democrats took control of the House this year with the largest midterms margin of victory in history, surpassing the previous record of 8.7 million votes in 1974, according to NBC News election data.

When the investigations and subpoenas start flowing in January we'll return to this discussion and determine then if it was a blue wave or not. Just think, Trump's tax returns will be available within 60 days. He's sweating big time now and so are his evil spawn. Ooday and Cusay may relocate to countries with no extradition treaties with the US like....maybe.....Russia?

No intelligent person calls 2014 a wave.
Waves are like these:
2010 first O Midterm: Rep gain 63 House seats, gain 6 Senate seats, and also gained 680 seats in state legislative races.
1994 first C Midterm: Rep gain 54 house seats, gain 8 Senate seats, gain 10 governorships.
2018 only T Midterm: Dem gain 41 House seats, lose 2 Senate seats, gain 7 governorships, 350 legislative seats.

2018 marks on of only 4 times since WW2 has the President's party picked up Senate seats in their first midterm.

It does seem likely that race played a pretty significant role in where people placed their votes. Anyone have any sources on the demographic breakdown for each candidate's voters?

"No intelligent person calls 2014 a wave."

But 2010 could accurately be called "the racist wave." Because that was exactly what it was, I don't care if you agree, disagree, whatever. It was what it was.

2010 was an anti-ACA wave. I don't care if you agree, disagree, whatever. It was what it was.

"2010 was an anti-ACA wave."

Since 2018's #1 issue in ads was health care, would you say 2018 was a pro-ACA wave?

"2010 was an anti-ACA wave. I don't care if you agree, disagree, whatever. It was what it was."

When the same thing was passed by Mitt Romney it didn't receive such an angry reception, it was who passed it not what was passed....provable by the fact that it has steadily risen in popularity even after Obama is out of the WH. 2010 was a temper tantrum by racist Americans. To diminish the importance of the election of the first black President is just foolish.

You need to get over the "nobody can disagree with Obama's politics because he is black and if you do you are a racist." That in itself is racist. I'm sure your response to this post is that I'm a racist for making it. Do you go into the local shoe store and when someone tries on a pair of white sneakers you yell "racist". When a white car drives by do you yell "racist"? That's where we are headed.
