    The past election was a must win race for the Ds because they were going to lose the senate any way in 2018. By lose I mean they will not be able to control or even influence the debate in the second half of the first Trump term. At least half of the remaining blue wall is on the glide path to bankruptcy and that will lead to a lot of their brightest lights going to jail for state bankruptcy fraud, not to mention massive tax flight. Add to that a packing of the federal bench by the Trump administration and they will lose their base. How bad will this get by 2020?

    me not know. Seems they (D) were just saying same thing about opponent (R)?

    Trump will have to succeed against this very corrupt dirty handed "opposition". They would rather crash the country (again) to get their grimy paws back into the US Treasury. They may have to be locked up. GWB tried to work with them..........what did he get? Crash!

    didn't the D's gain seats in the senate this past election and the republicans lost seats?

    didn't the Democrats also gain seats in the house this past election while republicans lost seats in the house?

    The bench is the state and local level. I believe the totals are 31 states where the Rs control the executive and legislative branch V. 13 for the Ds. That translates to a future permanent 62+ seat majority in the senate if current trends continue because there are no non-incumbent Ds with name recognition and experience.

    Seeing how Obastard has been in the seat for the last 8, that would be appropriate.

    2010, 2012, 2014, 2016, the dems get their asses handed to them in historic defeats to the point where they're nothing but a shell of a party, and yet instead of stepping back and trying to find out what they're doing wrong, they double down on stupid reelecting an OLD bat shit crazy white woman who has orchestrated their loses as minority leader, and seeking an antisemitic muslim as their DNC chair.

    How stupid are these people? Well, stupid enough to keep it up until their hardly a foot note.
