Perspective from Polipundit

Jayson at Polipundit gives us a little perspective on the election we just had.

In 1991, the Democratic Party held 267 seats in the U.S. House of Representatives.
As of today’s date, with three contests not yet called, they hold 200 seats.
In 1991, the Democratic Party held 56 seats in the U.S. Senate.
Today, they hold 44 seats…
… The last time a Democratic nominee pulled 51 or more percent of the popular vote was back in 1964.

Beyond the numbers there is analysis of conservative turnout. It could have been better and it faced the full onslaught of what the left could muster. After all, the MoveOn folks were the largest employer in Ohio for that fatefull day…
