Well Then: GOP Domination Again

Though don’t pop the corks on those Veuve bottles quite yet: it took a 60-38% margin among whites for you to accomplish what you did tonight. There were also 21-15 Democratic seats v. Republican seats. That ratio will change in 2016, when it changes to 24 GOP-10 D, and also a presidential election year, in which Democratic turnout rises. Furthermore, the racial makeup of America will change further, and African-Americans and Latinos, both of whom will see increases in population and vote overwhelmingly for Democrats will change. Meanwhile, you don’t have 67 votes or even 60 to override a filibuster or a veto — you have no real power.
