Update on Alaska as of Sunday night according to the Anchorage Daily News

Vote counting will start again tomorrow


34,518 absentee ballots
2,651 early votes not yet counted
15,967 Provisional

About 53k votes to be counted, in addition another 10,682 absentee ballots were requested, but not yet received (some of these will likely trickle in as well). Sullivan currently leads by 8,149



The House currently has 7 races still outstanding. The GOP has currently picked up 15 seats, lost 3 for a net 12 seat gain. 5 of those 7 remaining were seats held by Democrats, 2 of them were held by Republicans (both of those are runoffs in Louisana the GOP is very likely to hold.

We will win Alaska and Louisiana. No doubt, this wave produced awesome results across the country for the GOP.

Back from the dead...hollow Midterm results favoring Republicans do NOT erase the atrocious Conservative ideology, the GOP record of rich-only supporting policies, and a history of decimating the well-being of this country when in charge. 2 years of lame duck Congress and more exposure to the pettiness and ineffectiveness of the GOP, following by 2016 annihlation of the GOP across the board. Welcome back.

There Are None So Blind As Those Who Will Not See

Quote:
There Are None So Blind As Those Who Will Not See:
• According to the ‘Random House Dictionary of Popular Proverbs and Sayings’ this proverb has been traced back to 1546 (John Heywood), and resembles the Biblical verse Jeremiah 5:21 (‘Hear now this, O foolish people, and without understanding; which have eyes, and see not; which have ears, and hear not’). In 1738 it was used by Jonathan Swift in his ‘Polite Conversation’ and is first attested in the United States in the 1713 ‘Works of Thomas Chalkley’. The full saying is: ‘There are none so blind as those who will not see. The most deluded people are those who choose to ignore what they already know’.

Hilarious!!

That Conservative ideology has swept across the nation, dude.

Oh, I'm sure you're unaware the party of the RICH is the democrat party.

Party of the rich: In Congress, it's the Democrats

Party of the rich: In Congress, it's the Democrats

No one, and I mean no one, has decimated this country, especially the black community, like obama and the dems have done over the last 6 years.

What stage of denial is this?

Countimg still going on in Alaska, but Sullivan was deemed the winner by the AP.

Three districts now remain in the House (not including the two Louisana runoffs). Both that have since been called have gone towards the Democrats

Of the three that remain, two are in California (CA-7 & CA-16), Democrats lead in both, though more still need to be counted. Democrats are expected to expand their leads in both. CA-16 might go to a recount depending on where the #'s are when its all set and done, CA-7 a recount is possible, but unlikely depending on where the #'s stand

AZ-2 the Republican has a 161 vote lead, Arizona has a mandatory recount in all House races within 200 votes

Right now its 244 Republicans 186 Democrats, with the GOP picking up 15 seats, dropping 3 for a net gain of 12. If the Republicans hold the Louisiana runoffs as expected and those currently leading in the three seats still viewed as too close to call, it will be 247 to 188 when its all set and done, GOP gaining 16 seats and losing 3 seats for a net gain of 13.

USA, USA, USA, USA (come on, chant) USA, USA, USA



No, even better. "I wish I was in Dixie, hoorah, hoorah"

Default In summary

The Midterm election results can be summed up as follows:

They mean nothing positive for Republicans. Taking over the Senate is not a positive for Republicans because their decision-making and policies are atrocious and never work for the benefit of the least of us. Their taking over the Senate only means that this country will be subjected for two years of a lame duck, serverely broken Congress, to more Republican crap. The results don't mean anything good for this country, because when Republicans are happy, the country suffers in every domestic category. Republicans continue to be the party of Bush, the worst president in history. Since Bush left to the sigh of relief of the entire free world, Republicans have done NOTHING to show they can help solve the problems in this country, problems they either created or made worse.

For Dems, it's a wake up call. You listened to that crap Republican narrative and didn't support our great President Obama. President Obama is light years ahead of any Republican. He has done a fine job, with opposition of a level unequaled in history. Pubs must continue to gerrymander, try to fix the electoral college, suppress the vote, and so forth. They have no option but to continue to cheat, since their policies are unpopular. Lowest turnout in over 70 years allowed members of the unpopular Pubs to gain seats to continue supporting the Congress from Hell. Certainly not a mandate despite blowhards from the Right claiming otherwise.

On to 2016, and the annihilation of the hapless GOP. Dems will continue holding the White House and retake the Senate. Between 2016-2024, the Supreme Court will become better with the departing of at least one or more of those right-wing Justices.
