I am certain that many folks, that voted Republican, are wondering what happen to the "Red Wave" where the GOP would take control very easily away from the Democrats. From listening to various reasons one stands out that the issue of: Roe V Wade was ultimately the reason. When it came to light, due to a leak in the Supreme Court, the Democrats wasted no time in using this against the Republicans. Democrats tricked the Republicans into using the word "Ban" as if the Republicans were infavor of banning abortions all together. This seem to work for the Democrats in: rechanging the minds of Voters who were first going to vote Republican in the midterms to switch back to voting for the Democrats. With the current figures of: 49 to 49 in the Senate and 201 (Democrats) to 211 (Republicans) in the House; it will be interesting to see if this factor worked or not in favor of the Democrat party in retaining both House & Senate.

Abortion likely had a part. Keep in mind that in 2010 we won 63 house seats with a overall advantage of 2.2 million votes over democrats. In 2022 we had a turnout 6+million greater than democrats and actually could fail to take house.

Abortion likely had a play with turnout but I don’t think it was the main reason. Until the republicans get real leaders ready to fight instead of shell up against fox news agenda and other fake news rags, we will continue to fail. It’s time for someone with a spine in leadership that will call out these count til you win states, fraudulent vote by mail and fox news.

This one is on the turtle and that nancy boy from kali. It’s time for new leadership in Republican Party.

They actually got the Dem voters to come out, by telling them it will be the end of the world as they knew it if Republicans gain power. These are people programmed to kneejerk on cue, according to certain stimuli.
That, and insurance policies at the tally, where needed.
The country is gone full retard, it doesn’t matter what or who is better qualified, objectivity is extinct. “Party” is everything, brain dead does not matter. We are done, stick a fork in it.

Been listening to some different news stations today and I think the democrats are going to keep control over it all again. Too much hinting around with the late counts how the democrat candidate is gaining with X number of votes still to count.

Roe V Wade and Trump are the biggest hurdles for Republicans at the moment. I was afraid of this back when I heard they overturned it. It was really poor timing.

That and candidates who were backed by Trump and are strong supporters lost. It's time to move on to a fresh face.

Yep!! The timing was bad, and the Democrats used it to their advantage.
