Ok, we’re all feeling depressed about the election letdown. But these numbers may somewhat cheer you up on the popular vote totals:
These could change a bit because, of course, nearly a week after the election, California, the state that is supposed to be the technology capital of the world, is still counting votes.
If you’re a Republican and were expecting a red tide, this is small consolation. It does underscore that for the majority of voters the GOP message held. But it’s bad news because it means that the party and PACs spent way too much money in blowout races that went red, and way too little money in districts that were decided by a whisker that Republicans lost.
