    Yeah, pretty much as expected. If the senate goes the way it looks to be, we'll be having a split congress. That'll end well.

    Don't put much stock into the early numbers, when only a few percent of precincts have reported their results. If he's still ahead 67-33 when a majority of precincts have reported, THEN it's time to ask that question.

    It is interesting when looking at Nate Silver's predictions and stuff. While the Republicans are winning in decent number of districts, a good number of those races are pretty close. We are talking 5-6%.

    Depends on your point of political view. Every President in the last 50-60 years, who's party lost both the House and the Senate at mid-terms, has gone on to win re-election for a 2nd term. No idea how just losing 1 would work out.

    yeah, it's already evened out.

    The Democrats finally win a toss-up race. Indiana's 2nd reelects Joe Donnelly.

    Well when Congress and the White House is split it forces policy more or less to the center, where most Americans fall. If I were to guess having one House shift power and the Senate being pretty much an even split we will see a similar thing. Policy will be shifted more center.

    Democrats Emphasize it's Not Over, Pelosi says They'll Keep the Majority | Foxnews.com saw the video earlier tonight before retruns started coming in. If ever a Speaker was out of touch, she is.

    Lots of races are won with no more than 5-6% margin. That's nothing unusual. It's modest, but not that close. 10% is a very solid win.
