(RightIsRight.co) – In an outcome that has angered the GOP, the Democrats will maintain control of the United States Senate after incumbent U.S. Senator Catherine Cortez Masto was declared the winner over Republican Adam Laxalt in Nevada.
Adding to the GOP’s concerns, depending on the outcome of a runoff race next month in Georgia, the Democrats could gain another seat in the Senate chamber.
As the conservative National Review reports:
“Cortez Masto’s win brings Democrats to 50 seats in the upper chamber to Republicans’ 49 seats, with the Georgia Senate race headed to a runoff next month. If Republican Herschel Walker wins the race in Georgia next month, the Senate will continue to be tied as it has been and Vice President Kamala Harris will serve as the tie-breaking vote. If Democratic incumbent Senator Raphael Warnock wins, Democrats will have a slight majority.
“The result is the conclusion of a disappointing midterm outing for Republicans. As of Saturday evening, control of the U.S. House remained up in the air, though Republicans are likely to take the chamber with a narrow majority.” [emphasis added]
Even if the GOP gains control of the United States House of Representatives and dethrones House Speaker Nancy Pelosi in the process, the midterm elections will not have resulted in the “Red Wave” that almost every pollster in America predicted.
What is your opinion? Why do you believe every pollster got the midterm elections wrong with their predictions of major gains by the Republicans? Please share your thoughts and views by emailing [email protected]. Thank you.
