    Well - that and the need for more balanced reporting by the press.

    Tying Trump to Nazi uprisings (as an example) is a bit over the top, no?

    You are correct.... Just left Fox news .... scrolled all the way to the bottom and not one mention of those elections on the entire front page. Wonder why... ????

    Yes, it is moving blue, but most analysts are indicating it was beyond normal shifting of the electorate and that it explains some but not all of the results. Not saying that it will, since a lot can happen in the next year, but if the same electoral demographic trend holds in 2018, the losses on a national level will be equally historic.

    And you can only imagine the mix and values of the folks who live inside or around the Virginia beltway and it is only northern Va and the Richmond area that is blue from what I could see from the state voting results map. Based upon what I see on aregular basis the state will definitely start moving ffarther blue as things are definitely changing pretty far out in the Virginia suburbs. I am being nice with my comments but you can read between the lines.

    That’s like the super blue CA central coast feel good population center that swamps the balance of the state,

    Republicans, who have controlled the chamber since 2000, went into Tuesday holding 66 of 100 seats. Democrats flipped 15 seats with 4 additional races that are in for recount because of how close they are. That's potentially losing 29% of the seats held by the GOP.

    That's a straight-up shellacking......

    It’s been a while since I’ve been around here but I see somethings never change and the same people who can’t seem to grasp the big picture or reality are still struggling with this.
