Did the Reps win, or did the Dems lose?
The 2014 mid-term elections, overall, nationwide. Now that we have a few hours of hindsight after the polls have closed and the campaigns are done.
I think a little of both, but I lean to the Dems losing the election in the sense that most ran horrible campaigns. They seemed to take their positions for granted, plus they really didn't have much to with with, and seemed incapable of realizing that and convincing people that they were the ones to move forward with.
