After yesterday’s midterm elections, the Democrats regained control of the House, but the Republicans increased their number of Senate seats. It wasn’t the big “blue wave” many on the Left were hoping for, and Hillary Clinton’s former campaign manager has the excuses ready to go:
Looks like Dems won the popular vote by 7-9 points yesterday. That’s more than GOP margin in 1994 or 2010–both “big waves”. Gerrymandering is real. It’s why Democrats didn’t win more seats. But wins for Gov, state leg and even state Supreme Court will translate into fairer maps.

There’s that “collective popular vote for House & Senate races” thing again, and it never stops being funny:
There is no popular vote. https://t.co/zvywZKT4VU

Now do the popular vote in each race.

It becomes ever more clear that it wasn't just Clinton being an awful candidate for her loss but having a dumbass campaign manager was the icing on the cake. This wasn't a national election

you dopes can talk about made up things like a national popular vote for congressional elections all you want while Dems lost a Sen seat in AZ bc of the Green Party and one in FLA bc of crappy Dem turnout in Dade and Broward. At least Dems won in WI bc the candidates lived there https://t.co/wC4FiIqV0w
