The final votes are being counted from the 2018 election. They confirm that the Democrats crushed Republicans.
Let's start in the seat count. Republican Rep. David Valadao of California's 21st District conceded on Thursday to Democrat T.J. Cox. Cox's victory combined with other election results means that Democrats have picked up a net gain of 40 seats.
As has oft been repeated, this is the largest Democratic House gain since 1974. It's a larger gain than Democrats had in the wave elections of both 1982 and 2006.
We can go back even further and see how unusual it is that Democrats picked up this many seats. If you go back all the way to first election of the post-World War II era (1946), there have only been three elections in which Democrats net gained more seats than they did in 2018. Put another way, this was the fourth best performance for Democrats in the 37 general House elections since President Donald Trump was born.

It was massive Democrat vote fraud.
No, sorry, vote fraud isn’t legit.
Theft works, particularly with a GOP that won’t or can’t fight like the Democrats.
Trump has not spoken about these losses in such terms. Does he believe the was dishonesty , but is using restraint?
Why do you post garbage from CNN? I’ve done my best to get this trash out of airline clubs, my favorite restaurants, etc. and have done a good job in achieving its removal. Why post it here?
Didn’t hussein lose something like 60 seats his first midterm?
Yup, he lost 63 seats.
how many did GOP legitimately lose? How many stolen?
Yes it was, across the board. The joke’s on us.
I think it’s good to know what the lying media is doing. Helps to fight back against them.
pravda means truth, comrade
Yes it was. And what will the feckless Republicans do? Roll over and lick boots. Sickening and now they are going to turn on Trump.
Across the board losses for Rep.?
Uhh, how many seats did we pick up in the Senate? Where have you been?
CNN propaganda really shouldn’t be spread. Notice how they focus on the House but completely ignore the opposite results in the Senate. Only five prior Presidents GAINed seats in their first Midterm.
Only 3 gained +2 or more.
Donald Trump pulled of something historic and knocked off entrenched Democrat incumbents in 4 States (IN, MO, ND and FL.)
Moreover, the most important governors races stayed with the GOP, particularly Florida and Georgia.
CNN is spinning when the losses in the Senate are nothing but devastating for them.
Nailed it but need the Blue Demoncrat shading/color.
But it is effective in American politics and the RATs know it.
It should be a priority in the lame duck Congress to outlaw ballot harvesting for federal elections. But it won’t.
Me too which is why I have 2 tv going and scan between the 3.
Its amazing CNN MSNBC will be trashing Trump in some way with out fallen matter what else is going on in the world and Fox will be on an entirely dif subject.
