They have lost two Senate seats and got trounced in a third they thought they could switch.

How about the House? Any major pick-ups there?

And as I type this, Tim Kaine was just declared the winner of the Senate race in Virginia.

The GOP just lost long time representation in MD's District 6 which includes some of the reddest ground in the state.

And a big F*& YEAH!! for Tim Kaine ... I heard it first from Ray!

Nope. Pretty much a tough night all the way around. They'll have to rethink quite a lot of things going forward.

"They'll have to rethink quite a lot of things going forward."

About time they started thinking, period.

Not responding to any cheap shots tonight. Enjoy your victory, and lets hope Obama learns that other people have valid opinions too.

Is there any good news for the GOP tonight?

Akin and Mourdock are toast so maybe they can put the rape comments behind them.

The only one that comes to mind is the NC Gov win for the GOP. First time since 1980 I believe.

Not much else that was not already predicted (like the new IN Gov being a Rep.).

You might want to go to the Fox site (I know, I know) and click on the various state maps. You'll see a sea of red with islands of blue.

The bad news is that Obama and the Dems will have a tremendous tail wind as the economy comes back over the next 4 years.

"The real divide in the country is rural/urban."

i.e. people who don't come into contact with people of various interests/backgrounds/ethnicities/religions/etc. vs people who do.

Dope,

We did not say all.....we are clearly saying there is too much racism in the politics of the GOP.......and that for many in the GOP it was the glue of the party.....sickening.....

This may be of interest:

Most of the nation shifted to the right in Tuesday's vote,
but not far enough to secure a win for Mitt Romney.

www.nytimes.com/interactive/2012/11/07/us/politics/obamas-di...
The battleground states (FL, OH, PA) had some significant movement.

Otoh, take a look at what happened in AL and MS.
That's also quite interesting.

I think that this is a simplistic but wrong reading of the data. Normally, with unemployment so high, the incumbent would have no chance. Although Obama's winning has little to do with any shift, left or right (it was the republican failure to nominate a reasonable candidate) it would make more sense to compare Obama's performance with what would have been expected given the economy, not with 2008.

In fact, if you look at what happened in senate and local elections, it seems to me that the country shifted left. Gay marriage finally passed in a plebiscite, the youth vote maintained its turnout, the Hispanic vote up'd its influence.

If you could point out where I said or implied that, I'd appreciate it.

What I said is no different than saying a trip to Europe will expand your perspective.

How can you have much sympathy/understanding for others' circumstances when you don't have to confront it on any concrete level?
