“[T]he Red Wave predicted by pollsters and trumpeted by The New York Times and other media almost daily did not materialize. If there was any wave, it was a blue one, victorious for direct democracy ballot measures raising the minimum wage in Nebraska, Nevada, and Washington, D.C. Even in GOP-ruled South Dakota, voters overwhelmingly approved Medicaid expansion via a constitutional amendment. Control of the Senate hangs on the Senate races in Arizona, Nevada, and the Georgia runoff in early December between Warnock and Walker. This year, the Senate Democrats had the advantage with twenty Republican seats up for re-election as compared with fourteen Democratic seats. … The more fundamental question is why the Democrats did not landslide the Republicans nationally.” (11/12/22)
