How much was the change in 2010? And Obama still won re-election.
Comparing with similar midterm years, GOP fared a lot better yesterday. I think Trump has solidified his support, the big senate win should be credited to him. House loss is expected and it would be impossible for the same party to keep presidency, senate and House during a midterm election. He probably retired Ryan and his focus was on senate and Ryan was given up long time ago. Ryan was probably a secret never trump.
Also Pelosi has become friendly with Trump. Trump is a centrist, I think Pelosi and Feinstein are pretty smart. Trump is saying that he will help Pelosi to become the speaker of the house.
With Dem takes over the House, the resistance movement has ended since resistance is only useful when Dem lost 100% of the power.
Even media may become more friendly to Trump.
Also I think the worst enemy for Dem is DSA, not GOP. Dem and GOP are brothers and they look a lot like each other. DSA is a communist organization, let’s see what Pelosi will deal with DSA.
