    That's more complicated than I thought.

    I thought it was just blue collar workers that were tired of Hillary.

    It does not work like that.

    Census workers come around and they knock on doors.

    That's is true, but it didn't start with census, it started before, and along with the Tea Party, bail outs and yes the ACA introduction,

    Yes. The claims that the ACA didn't cost seats, just redistricting was comically incorrect.

    Due to the ACA, the GOP got more seats, so not true!! It was due to

    Hey!! That was your comic thread.

    He was right, who controls the states pretty much control who the state votes for.


    After Obama, Dems control so many fewer states. He really eviscerated your party.
    In 2008, Dems held 29 governorships. Now, they hold 16. What a wipeout!!!

    At that time I really doubt the ACA was a trigger for the increase in GOP seats but the Tea Party and Bail outs. Also more Dems are least likely to vote in mid term elections, and I know in MI they (the GOP in charge) are trying to make it as hard as possible to vote, decreasing the voting places for the known Democratic areas, and trying to get rid of straight ticket ballots. I foresee a huge mid term turnout in 2018.

    What we do know, for sure, is it wasn't redistricting.
    And of course the huge Dem wipeout in governorships isn't redistricting either.

    I foresee a huge mid term turnout in 2018.

    Yeah, I wouldn't be surprised to see a big Dem loss in the Senate.

    Its was not the ACA, it was a conscious decision to transfer power in a few swing states, plus the Tea Party propaganda, so the GOP saying it was the ACA is not true.

    Then what did Obama and the Dems do in 2009 & 2010 that pissed off so many voters that the Dems lost
    63 seats?
