Lol - though other than those actually in Congress or making big bucks to lobby, I'm not sure anyone would say it 'tastes great'

You obviously have very little knowledge of how national elections work historically, at least for the past 15-20 years. This is pretty much par for the course every 2 years; the pendulum constantly swings back and forth. If you think this is something permanent, well, keep living.
This is correct. This result is not particularly shocking. People need to read some history.

You forgot a state:



Democratic governor, Democratic senator, 1 out of 2 Congresspeople.

Minnesota stayed solid blue this election, too. Democratic governor, Democratic Senator, and 5 Democrats out of 8 in US House. No Republican backlash here because we're run by Democrats and have one of the best state economies in the country.

I'd say it's more anti incumbent (or the party of the incumbent in the case of MA and MD) than anti-Democrat. Here in my state Pennsylvania, Corbett a Republican became the first PA governor to not be elected to a second term since governors were allowed to run for a second term here nearly 60 years ago I believe.

Pennsylvania switched it's governor from Republican to Democrat so there's that. I honestly think it was the only race amongst governor, House and Senate races that switched from the GOP to Democrats. Corrbett was that unpopular, most unpopular governor in the country that was up for reelection.
