Midterm election results

Discuss amongst yourselves, and feel free to report significant developments as they come in.

The Kentucky 6th District and the Virginia 10th District are supposed to be the first indicators.

I'm watching CNN because I have a cruel streak. Is it just me or are the anchors starting to look just a little perturbed only 29 minutes after the first polls have closed?

DRUDGE: EXIT POLLS SHOW DEM WAVE BUILDING

I suspect he's just screwing with them, to be honest.

I'll be starting a Darkstream a few minutes after 7 PM Eastern to discuss the midterm results as they come in.

8:43 PM Eastern: I call KY-06 for Barr. This means Republicans have held the House! All hail the God-Emperor! As anticipated, the much-ballyhooed Blue Wave talked up by the mainstream media did not appear.

"There will be no 'blue wave'"

So if the Republicans do manage to get their majority, are we looking at the military actually being used to stop the caravan and building the wall or has the Republican party gone beyond the point of cuckservative?

Blogger DraveckysHumerus November 06, 2018 6:07 PM  

Pursuant to Dirk Manly's urging, I went ahead and lodged a formal federal election complaint with USDOJ. It's a midterm election result.

Feels more like Brexit/Trump where the media was predicting their narrow victory than like McCain/2006 when they won.

"Early Voting Numbers Don’t Indicate a ‘Blue Wave’"

https://thepoliticalinsider.com/early-voting-numbers/?utm_medium=email&utm_source=criticalimpact&utm_campaign=TPI_Afternoon_Newsletter_11_6_2018&utm_content=1d09840caddec138a6473c7b9fa19141&source=CI

"The latest early voting numbers provided by The Washington Post don’t show a “blue wave” materializing if you judge by the increase in new voters."

Blogger Ralph Markham November 06, 2018 6:14 PM  

Depends on how many cuckservatives are still bought and paid for, as well as how many still cling to some concept of "decency." The ones who realize that decency is dead will no longer be shackled by the siren call of those who claim they are indecent. The question becomes, do the shitlords in Congress outnumber the cucks enough to push through the Trump agenda? Time will tell, but I'm hopeful. There's a certain energy in the air that reminds me of 2016 in all of its triggering glory.

I think the media banging on about more young and women voters helping the democrats is false, they don't understand that voting based on your group has now shifted to race. Your generation and gender no longer matter. The Democrats are losing vast numbers of young and female white voters, and they will very republican from now on. White women voted for Trump so I expect that to increase as we go forward. This is what the polls aren't taking into account, the white population is moving to protect its demographic position, the globalist attempt to divide the white population along victim group lines has now utterly failed. The white population will no vote just like the minority groups do, for one party.

If they're able to make this one of the cleanest elections with the see something/say something & monitoring by feds (many corrupt officials are now gone that would have helped do it) then there should be a big surprise in voting. I think Dems have been using fraudulent votes for decades & no one has called them on it. Repubs just did deals like the cucks they were. Feinstein is NOT the most popular elected official in history, although she has the title by number of votes. About as fake as her duty to America.

Gillum means "turn in your guns or die by SWAT". Especially with this "southern gentlemen" cuck republican strain.
But this is Florida and some van or pole-worker's car is going to turn up with an extra 50 thousand votes any minute.
One this is for certain: after this, win lose or draw, I will never look at anybody else the same again. I will always wonder "did they vote for my job and my life to be destroyed?"
As I have said for a long time. It's war. It's already war. Diversity + democracy = Civil War. If Gillum wins it'll be by the number of votes equal the number of Puerto Ricans let in after that hurricane. There was even an article about how this "new voter block" is going to vote for anything that benefits them, screw the hosts. And did anything happen to the governor of PR, a known leftist Hillarycrat, who sat on relief supplies just so they can point their finger and blame Trump and sent in the ricans by the boat load? No. Because this is an anarcho tyranny. An anarcho tyranny with democracy and entire "enemy peoples" out to destroy you. Don't anybody forget that.
I'm being silly though. We're not voting our way out of this. But I would rather "it" come via some leftists trying to pull a red doom as a terrorist/insurgent role instead of "by proxy" of voting in somebody who turns me into a criminal by stroke of the pen then they get to watch SWAT murder me in my front yard.

A note on Drudge.
Drudge is pissed about the matters with Julian Assange. Drudge is for the most part a man about that early double-ought years libertarian "freedom of the press" strain. Gotta love that type, in spite of what epic failures that movement has become. You can't "defend the freedom of those who want to destroy you" forever. And I think Drudge can see that we are tired of this. He does not think he's going to be "allowed into the ethnostate" if you go by that meme. Personally I don't think anybody cares. But it is a bit disturbing that there is no traction on giving Assange a break. Trump has relied on Sleepy Session too damned long and it's getting old. We need traction, and some justice - on a lot of things.

"Most of that "blue wave" propaganda was to make us less surprised when they steal the election. It was not to fool us before the election, it was to fool us ahead of it. "

In military terms, Psy-Ops preparation of the bettle-field.. "if WE claim we won a race, you better believe we actually got the votes.... or else!"

The Lexington Herald Leader from here in Kentucky called it for Barr, take away quotes from the announcement article:

'In an election widely seen as a referendum on the president, Kentucky’s Sixth Congressional District told the country they still support Donald Trump.'

'McGrath’s loss leaves Democrats again scrambling in a state that at one time was firmly in their control. McGrath won just two counties in the race, the traditional Democratic strongholds of Fayette and Franklin counties, and failed to make up the margin in the more rural counties.'

"I’ve been talking about the panel I’ve run, and while it didn’t have any questions about who was likely to vote, it does let me see how Americans’ vote preferences have evolved over the past two years. The short answer is that they haven’t. Of all my respondents, just 2 percent moved from Trump to the 2018 Democratic House candidate, while 1.5 percent shifted from Clinton to the GOP House candidate. Now my panel over-represents older, more consistent voters. But among them, this election looks a lot like 2016."

-One of the latest updates at 538

Blogger Lazarus November 06, 2018 9:07 PM  

Update 20:45 EST: Democratic incumbent Joe Donnelly has lost to Republican challenger Mike Braun in Indiana, a major blow to Dems that means Republicans will likely expand their majority in the Senate. Pollsters have called it: The GOP has won the Senate. And as Lexington Kentucky's Andy Barr has won re-election, dealing a major blow to Democrats' ambitions for winning a solid majority in the House. Republicans are now favorites to win the House and Senate, according to real-time polls and online betting markets.

Bigly, 63-36, but that's with only something like 20% reporting.

"Of all my respondents, just 2 percent moved from Trump to the 2018 Democratic House candidate,"

So much for all those cross-voters they kept saying must be hiding out in the early votes.

Blogger Doktor Jeep November 06, 2018 9:25 PM  

A failed blue wave means nothing if my state turns communist. America being "great again" also means nothing? Why? Well. I remember those states that held out of gay marriage and got "cracked down on" by the DOJ, how the Constitution was being used. And when we gun owners asked "well then, how about that?" we were told to pound sand.
So, where is the crackdown on those commie states for those gun laws? Roe v Wade exists because "some girl might get in trouble crossing a state line to get an abortion!" but you can still cross the wrong state line with a legal gun and a license to carry is and be looking at prison.
So the cavalry is not coming. Trump is too bogged down and more so by neocons than by Hillarycrats. If my states goes commie, yeah yeah MAGA but I'll have to sell my house - the first and only I ever owned and very late in life because of my career being outsourced and H1B'ed to death TWICE, and leave just so I don't have to make the choice of "turn in your guns or get killed by police".
It's like those wonderful central American shitholes and their beautiful beaches: everybody is too oppressed to care about those things. I'm not going to be caring about how low unemployment is for blacks and hispanics when their vote is the reason why my life gets upturned ONCE MORE. - I lived in Seattle for 10 years. Those creepy liberals let me tell you... . Yes they are creepy because just dealing with them I got the vibes that these people will go psycho when they don't get their way.
All I want is that which I voted for: to be able to plan a future and be left alone. But who am I to care? I don't have a family, I live alone, no kids - because I was cursed and noticed all the divorce rape or having to settle for being settled for by a roastie - so what the hell do I have to care about in the big picture.
Oh well. North Dakota and 9 dollars and hour job and waiting to die here I come.

@171: Agree 100%. I figure that to have actual, full control you need a margin of about 20 votes. About 10% of your caucus will not support any given bill...which has been the problem in the Senate, McConnell didn't have enough of a margin. Anything he wanted to pass had to go through McCain, Flake, Snowe, and Collins.

Trump revealed in the aftermath of Stoneman that he's not actually pro-RKBA, and the neocons hate the 2nd Amendment. Kavanaugh so far hasn't changed anything, the Supreme Court yesterday turned down another RKBA case.
