Losers: House Democrats Dissect What Went Wrong And How To Rebound From Losses


GOP sees path to House majority in 2022

Republicans returned to the Capitol this week with a spring in their step after they defied expectations and gained House seats on Election Day, putting a GOP majority within their grasp for 2022.

GOP lawmakers rewarded House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) and other top Republicans on Tuesday by reelecting a leadership team that benefited from ticket-splitting voters who turned President Trump out of office but backed Republican candidates in the House and Senate.

It was a stamp of approval for divided government and gave Republicans a sense of momentum in their goal to recapture the lower chamber two years from now in the midterm elections, when the party that controls the White House historically loses seats in Congress.

The economy will likely get better in the next two years which helps the incumbent.

The senate favors the dems in 2022. Plus McConnell looks like a walking heart attack and the dem gov in his state would gladly appoint someone who would flip the senate.

We are about to see a progressive movement.

If we do, get ready to lose your constitutional rights. Maybe then you'll start to understand what it is you're giving up.

There is a reason people are fleeing Democrat run Cities and States.

Yeah they are moving to places like Texas and Arizona and turning them blue.

Plus you got the new voters who look at the failures of Trump. The next decade or two probably isn’t going to go well for the right

This perfectly encapsulates the real problem in this country. We the people should be angry at the failures of the federal government for the past several decades at least....with plenty of blame for both party's.

Trump's failures and faults are a teaspoon compared to the ocean of failure from the DNC and GOP we've accepted year after year after year.

4 years of an ahole with a big mouth and we're ready to forget the problems that led to him being able to win in the first place. You know the old saying about banging your head against a brick wall? That's us.

Move somewhere and then vote for the same policies you were trying to move from.
