Post-Election Blue Wave: Democrats Have Flipped 2 Senate Seats And A Large Number Of House Seats Since Election Night
Post-Election Blue Wave: Democrats Have Flipped 2 Senate Seats And A Large Number Of House Seats Since Election Night by Michael Snyder – End of the American Dream
Initially it did not appear that the much-hyped “blue wave” would be that impressive, but since election night we have seen race after race flip in favor of the Democrats. In fact, vote totals have moved in favor of the Democratic candidate in almost every race that was not officially settled on November 6th. As a result, it has now become clear that a “blue wave” has materialized, and Republicans are scrambling to try to save some of the seats that are still being contested. The biggest prize is the Senate seat in Florida where a recount is currently being conducted. But there are also a number of House seats that are still up for grabs, and as you will see below, vote totals are rapidly moving in favor of the Democratic candidates in several of those races.
Since November 6th, the political landscape has shifted dramatically. The following summary of how things have changed since election night comes from Gateway Pundit…
Democrats had a decent haul on election night but since Election Day the Democrats have had a spectacular run.
In the US Senate Democrats picked up two seats since Election Day.
** In Montana Senator Jon Tester — who was behind on election day — had a huge haul overnight and won by 5 points.
** In Arizona Taliban-supporting Marxist Kyrsten Sinema was declared the winner a week after votes were cast after being behind on election night
** In Florida Democrats have discovered a secret stash of 83,000 votes since election day! Senator Bill Nelson is now surprisingly only 12,000 votes down here.
Democrats have performed even better in the US House. Since election day Democrats have added close to 17 seats from Republicans who were winning on Election Day.
Curiously, there doesn’t seem to be any races where Democrats were leading on election night that have now flipped in favor of Republicans.
If you find one, please let me know.
Of course very few would dispute the fact that Democrats won the popular vote on November 6th. The following vote totals for the House come from Newsweek…
As they took back the House for the first time in eight years, Democrats received 51.2 percent of all votes cast in House races, or more than 51.5 million in total. Republicans, in turn, won more than 47.3 million votes, or 47.1 percent, and lost 28 total seats.
And the vote totals for Senate races were even more impressive for the Democrats…
The Senate results were by far more favorable to Democrats, even though they lost two seats and could lose two more. Republicans had 41.5 percent of all votes cast in Senate races, and Democrats 56.9 percent. The GOP received more than 33.5 million votes to the Democrats more than 46 million.
With all other things being equal, you would think that the final results of closely contested races all over the nation would not overwhelmingly favor one party over another.
In other words, you would expect Democrats to win some and Republicans to win some.
