The exit polling shows that the voters were disproportionately older and whiter than the rolls of registered voters. The Dems are going to have to figure what it takes to get their voters to the polls when there is no "transformational" candidate on the ballot.

The exit polling shows this is why the (D)'s lost. I've been saying this for a very long time.

The effectiveness of the Democrats’ class warfare message has been further undermined by the nature of the recovery; while failing most Americans, the Obama era has been very kind to plutocrats of all kinds. Low interest rates have hurt middle-income retirees while helping to send the stock market soaring. Quantitative easing has helped boost the price of assets like high-end real estate; in contrast middle and working class people, as well as small businesses, find access to capital or mortgages still very difficult.

Problem for the GOP now is that they have to actually pass substantive legislation and show they're not just going to try repealing the ACA for the 60th time. We'll see what happens.

"But I doubt they can do that"

The ignorance of this statement is why many dems are called "low information voters"

It is apparent that you have NO IDEA how many bills passed in the house were bi-partisian.

And still ole' harry won't even let his own fellow Senators see them, much less discuss them in committee like Congress is SUPPOSED to work.

Even dem Senators have been complaining about NOT being able to submit amendments.

It is hard to compromise when the bills don't even get to the respective committees.

Sadly, I think there will only be more executive orders and lies.

Agreed.

In a bigger blow to Obama, NBC news turns conservative.

They can start by not being more damaging to their targeted voters' economic wellbeing than the party they are vilifying. Black America is worse off now than before Obama took office - there was change, it's the hope that didn't happen.

It's no secret that Obama doesn't make any decision in the White House without Valerie Jarrett being present, or his wife, who he refers to as The Boss, similar to Truman referring to his wife as such.

Even with Michelle taking over, will we still have Valerie, and her staff of 32 around, to influence decisions? Yeah! I know, without Valerie, Obama wouldn't have a job! So I'm sure Valerie will stay put!
