Congratulations, Socialists, you have the House (what a prize). We can now look forward to constant slow battles over spending programs (which isn’t a bad thing). Trump got what he needed, Senate-wise – assuming he’s ready to use what he got.

I watched three governors’ races, all of which appear to have ended in close victories for the GOP. GA and FL have held off the Bernie Sanders kooks by razor-thin margins. That seemed to be the thickness of the evening – thin. That thinness, demographic voting patterns, and the hideous performance of the people, nationwide, on ballot measures, is telling. Red Wall or Blue Wave, this is a country in serious trouble, assuming we still feign to call it a “country” still.

Me? I’m still sticking to my TPC recommendations from a week or two back. Tick, tick, tick, tick. Take a gander at this House map and see if it looks like Balkinization to you:

Given the trends, the data, I’ll give the final analysis to Vox:
