The polls! The polls!

The House was pretty accurate, but much of the Senate noise appeared to be fabricated. All this talk of some massive "blue wave" and even some here talking about how metoo was going to flip 50% of the population or whatever; all turned out to be garbage. NBC's most recent poll had Nelson up by 5, Donnelly was supposed to win pretty much everywhere, albeit by a slim margin, and lost by a touchdown and then some, the pig McCaskill's race was never close, etc. Even the Florida and Georgia governor races were massively drummed up and turned out to be duds.

 

The best part though, was watching CNN and most of the other outlets, every time there was any news, most of which largley predictable outcomes, it was BREAKING NEWS! Democrats get this, Democrats get that. Meanwhile they seemingly(much like 2016) refuse to call states that didn't give them what they want. It's 5 am and there are states CNN still won't call...Indiana was over at 6:15 and most took hours to acknowledge it. Same for Missouri. The "blue wave" was again a media concocted farce and if anything, the big battleground states point to more trouble for Democrats than previously expected(admitted).

Trump was obviously worried about the polls otherwise he would have fired Sessions before the mid-term elections.  Sad!  Cheers!
