Election trends

Hopefully I’m not being premature (it isn’t even midnight on the East Coast yet), but there seem to be two pieces of good news happening in the midterm elections.

First, a “red wave” was strongly predicted. After all, traditionally the party in power in the White House loses many seats in Congress – Obama lost 12 seats in the Senate and 64 seats in the House, losing control of both. But this time, a red wave doesn’t seem to be happening. It still looks likely that the GOP will take over the House (although with a small majority), but Democrats are in a good position to retain control of the Senate.

Second, and even better, is that the candidates endorsed (and often recruited) by Donald Trump are largely losing. My take is that (at long last) the voters – including Trump’s base – are getting tired of him.

    I’m looking forward to Trump running for president, but only if it is from jail.
