    Any claims by McSally (and other beaten Repubs) that Russians were involved?

    Or do hanging chads and Putin only get rolled out when Dems lose?

    A couple of decades ago big corporate media would throw money hand over fist at polling centers. Being able to report numbers to their customers was a big deal. These polling centers were well funded and had the manpower to gather a lot of data from a lot of sources and were able to compile that data into generally accurate results.

    Enter the internet....... If any single one of us wants polling data, we no longer have to wait for the 6 o'clock news or for the Gothem Times to show up on our doorstep. We type in www.pollingplace.com and get it straight from the source, for free. Fact is, polling centers just aren't profitable anymore and they don't have the resources they used to.

    The economy was kicking *** and taking names in Clintons first Midterm (unless you were in the bond market). He lost 52 seats in the House in 1994. The economy was kicking *** and taking names in Obamas first Midterm. He lost 63 seats in the House in 2010.

    Correct. Approval/disapproval ratings matter more. Translation: If we didn't have a pathological lying d*ck for a president, Reps might have kept the House.

    But what does show a clear and direct correlation is the incumbent president's approval ratings and the outcome of the mid-term House elections. High approval ratings helped both Mr. Clinton and George W. Bush in 1988 and 2002, respectively, while weak approval ratings significantly hurt Mr. Obama in 2010 and Mr. Clinton in 1994. (Some notable outperformers were Bush 43 in 2006, Reagan in 1982 and Obama in 2014.)
    By this yardstick, Mr. Trump's current approval rating of 40% (according to Gallup) would translate into a loss of 42 House seats. Put another way, when the president's job approval rating is under 50%, the party in the White House has lost, on average, 40 House seats (and also 5 Senate seats, although that would be almost impossible this year because of the unusual Senate map).

    Well Dude, I don't think he is a "pathological liar" and surly he isn't the only "D**k" in Washington! IMO there are some R's & a whole lot of D's! ;)
