US Senate moved more toward the Republicans, but looking deeper at the numbers one could say the blue wave hit there as well.
There were 26 Democratic seats up for election and just 9 Republican seats.
The elections in Mississippi (run off) and Florida (recount) haven’t been decided yet, but I’m guessing they both will be Republican. For a GOP 53-47 majority.
If that is true, four seats (Missouri, North Dakota, Indiana, and Florida) flipped to the Republicans and two seats to the Democrats. (Nevada and Arizona)
So the Republicans flipped 4 of 26 races or 15.4%. The Democrats flipped 2 of 9 races for 22.2%. In that view the Democrats actually did better.
The Democrats also greatly out polled Republicans in total votes.
Senate 47,773,940 to 34,324,732 (Only 35 states) 58.2% to 41.8% - Probably skewed by two Democrats in the final for Senate in California. The loser, had 3,405,983 votes. Switch that to the GOP and the totals become:
44,367,957 to 37,730,715 or 54% to 46%.
It probably would have been more accurate to subtract the 3,405K total from the Democrats and add back what the third place Republican got in the jungle primary to the Republican total. I couldn’t be bothered to do that.
House 56,284,965 to 49,040,584 (Nationwide) 53.4% to 46.6% - This ignores some 1.8 million “other” votes.
Before the election it was said that the Democrats needed about a 7% margin to just break even in the House. They didn’t quite do that well in total votes but they gained thirty some seats to get to a comfortable majority. There are 7 seats not yet decided. Republicans lead in four and Democrats in three. That would give the Democratic Party a 231 to 204 seat majority.
