    SINCE ELECTION DAY: Democrats Pick Off Over a Dozen GOP House Seats and 2 Senate Seats… And They’re Going for More
    https://www.thegatewaypundit.com/201...oing-for-more/

    Democrats had a decent haul on election night but since Election Day the Democrats have had a spectacular run.
    In the US Senate Democrats picked up two seats since Election Day.

    ** In Montana Senator Jon Tester — who was behind on election day — had a huge haul overnight and won by 5 points.
    ** In Arizona Taliban-supporting Marxist Kyrsten Sinema was declared the winner a week after votes were cast after being behind on election night
    ** In Florida Democrats have discovered a secret stash of 83,000 votes since election day! Senator Bill Nelson is now only surprisingly only 12,000 votes down here.
    Democrats have performed even better in the US House. Since election day Democrats have added close to 17 seats from Republicans who were winning on Election Day.

    Here’s the list of the lost Republican Congressional seats — so far:
    Via Vox:

    There are 11 House seats still in question.

    NBC reported:

    In the wee hours of election night, the consensus was that Democrats had a good — though far from a great — showing. They netted the 23 seats needed to win the House, but they hadn’t hit a number much larger than that. It was pretty clear they were going to fall short in the marquee gubernatorial races in Florida and Georgia, even though they picked up seven governors’ mansions. And they looked destined to lose as many as four Senate seats to Republicans.

    Since then, however, the Democrats’ performance in the midterms has looked much, much better. They appear on their way to picking up close to 40 House seats — the party’s best showing since the post-Watergate midterms (their haul in 2006 was about 30 seats).

    Regarding the Senate contests, Sen. Jon Tester, D-Mont., eked out a victory; Democrat Kyrsten Sinema is ahead of Republican Martha McSally by more than 30,000 votes in Arizona; and the Florida Senate race is headed to a manual recount, with Sen. Bill Nelson, D-Fla., trailing Republican Rick Scott by just 12,000 votes. If you assume Sinema wins and Nelson loses, the GOP’s net Senate gain will be just two seats — when the 2018 map had 10 Democratic incumbents running for re-election in states President Donald Trump carried in 2016.

    Here are a few House seats to look at, via NBC:
    THE UNCALLED HOUSE RACES (11)

    CA-10 (Dem Josh Harder leads Republican Jeff Denham, 51 percent to 49 percent)

    CA-39 (GOPer Young Kim leads Dem Gil Cisernos, 51 percent to 49 percent)

    CA-45 (GOPer Mimi Walters leads Dem Katie Porter, 50.5 percent to 49.5 percent)

    CA-48 (Dem Harley Rouda has declared victory; he leads, 52 percent to 48 percent)

    CA-49 (Dem Mike Levin is ahead 55 percent to 45 percent)

    GA-7 (GOPer Rob Woodall is ahead, 50.2 percent to 49.8 percent)

    ME-2 (it appears the race is headed to ranked choice to determine the winner)

    NM-2 (NBC News retracted its earlier call in favor of the Republicans; Dem Xochitl Torres Small is ahead, 51 percent to 49 percent)

    NC-9 (GOPer Mark Harris is ahead, 49.4 percent to 48.8 percent)

    NJ-3 (Dem Andy Kim is ahead, 49.9 percent to 48.8 percent)

    UT-4 (Dem Ben McAdams is ahead, 51.2 percent to 48.8 percent)

    We can thank those 40+ Republicans who chose to retire rather than run for reelection for many of these losses.

    We can also thank the Democrats, who are extending the election beyond the cut-off time. I remember some years ago in Missouri where Ashcroft lost his seat to a Dem (the widow of the dead Mo governor who had "won" the election). The polls in St Louis were kept open hours after the election, with bus loads of voters brought in. He was too much of a gentleman to contest the results.

    That's the problem with most Republicans. They let the Dem thugs walk all over them. I guess that's why Trump is so refreshing. He's not someone who says the emperor has no clothes. He'd be the guy who'd yell "the emperor is naked". I respect someone who doesn't back down to the election stealing thugs.

    You have to ask why.

    We can also thank the fact that the election seasons are running so long and getting so ugly that most people, even many politically active ones are sick and tired of the whole thing and ready to move on Wednesday morning. The fraud and found votes just get lost in the shuffle because of burnout.

    This is why I'm giving up. The Democrats are going to take over everything in 2020 mark my words and it will be by hook or crook and no one will do anything about it. It's going to take a miracle for it not to happen.
    Progressivism is a bottomless pit of absurdity.
