Real Time 2018 Election Results-Live-Bob Davis Podcast 774

These days election results in real time without BS is a tall order. Experience the results in real time with me in Real Time 2018 Election Results-Live-Bob Davis Podcast 774.

Working America Into A Froth

It’s especially relevant how the media and politicians managed to work most of America into a froth for this election. Democrats regained control of the House of Representatives. Republicans did better than predicted in the Senate. The GOP also managed to surprise in a couple of governor’s races.

How Predictions Stack Up To Results

It’s Most noteworthy how results stacked up to the predictions. I see it this way. Democrats managed to cobble together a few pick ups in house races here and there into a majority. Republicans could have prevented some of these losses. What happened? How could the GOP manage to increase it’s majority in the senate but lose it in the house?

Minnesota Republicans Got The 8th District As Consolation Prize

Moreover for my Minnesota subscribers and listeners, there were major losses for incumbent republicans in the 2nd and 3rd House districts, all the statewide races and the state legislature. The consolation was one of the few republican pick ups in the House is Minnesota’s 8th district.

Blue Wave?

Was it a blue wave? My analysis says no. Democrats won some hard fought victories in key house races to control the house but they failed to win key governor’s races and lost ground in the Senate. More details in Real Time 2018 Election Results-Live-Bob Davis Podcast 774.

Some Outcomes Still Out

I am still waiting on the outcome of key races. Just learning the Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker has lost his bid for a third term, and waiting for some House races, Senate bids in Arizona and Montana. In coming days there will be plenty of post analysis, celebration and blame to go around.

Hard Drives Humming and Pizza

In conclusion there’s still something about a quiet night at the Broadcast Bunker. Results came from the Internet. The hum of hard drives and processors kept me company.

(Editor’s Note: A late development Monday in Minnesota. Republicans can add another pick up with Jim Hagedorn’s victory in Southern Minnesota’s 1st District. Minnesota republicans managed to lose all the statewide races and the state House of Representatives, making victories in the 8th and 1st even more bittersweet.)

And we had pizza

Do people understand the details of issues enough to actually understand the difference? Is there a difference? With Iraq unraveling what do you think the President should do? Air strikes? Is it really all Bush’s fault? Finally, Wall Street, K Street, the Crony Capitalists and those who do their bidding are shocked, and frightened at the implications of Eric Cantor’s loss in Virginia’s 7th Congressional District. Is this populism? Was the Tea Party really involved? Or have people just had it with business as usual in Washington?

Eric Cantor loses his re-election bid to a Tea Party Favorite. Is the Tea Party still relevant? Updates on all the stop stories for the middle of your week. Did Cantor’s stance on Immigration hurt him or was it his moderate politics? Thousands of illegal immigrant teens are crowding into border crossings, and holding facilities in Arizona and Texas. Concerns about disease and criminal behavior abound. President Obama blames it on unrest in Central America but his own Customs officials say its because the parents of these teens know the US is granting Amnesty. Now the White House says Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel made the decision to exchange 5 Taliban commanders for US Army-deserter Bowe Bergdahl, held captive by terrorists since 2009. So much for ‘The Buck Stops Here’. Poll numbers on the President’s handling of the Bergdahl deal are really bad, especially among veterans. And the VA scandal has convinced more Americans to be concerned that soon citizens might be waiting, and perhaps dying, just the same as Veterans. Meanwhile, over 57 thousand US Veterans are still waiting for medical care from the VA. Finally, concerned about Global Warming? Find out what the latest hazard in Lake Superior is.
