The New Chessboard for 2016

While I was gone on my adventures,  there was an Election.

This post is not  analysis, just reference.

Ready?  Let's read:

First the US Senate:

54 R - 44 D - 2 Ind (Caucus w/D)*
*(I predicted 55 R - 45 D)

Now comes the US House of Representatives:

244 R - 188 D

And finally, California:

First, the Assembly:

So why did Senator Boxer (D-CA) step down?

The South Bay flipped. In the biggest county of California, Los Angeles.

The Revolution begins!

  1. According to the election results, just over a third of the registered voters bothered to come out and vote in these mid term elections. The total % of the electorate that voted Republican amounted to only about 17% of the total registered electorate. the R's were much more able this time around to get out the die hard core voters than the D's (which is fellow D's can be annoyingly fickle at times). A truer test will be in the 2016 elections. If, however, current demographic trends continue, the national picture could look very different. Do not count your revolutionary cards just have some social conservatives, that no matter how hard the leaders try to sit on, that can alienate large swaths of people very quickly.
