    With those republican governors, ending the gerrymandering in key states isn’t going to be easy.

    On the other hand, Dems have taken the governor ship in other key states, but they do face a Rep legislature in most cases. I think the significant thing that the Dems need to build on is that, even with the gerrymandering and voter suppression (Georgia WTF?), they ran some very close races in places you would not expect them to. And they can consider the success they got as a driver and gameplan for 2020.

    The House being in Democrat hands is a major power shift in the USA, and it will begin manifesting immediately.

    What amazes me is the Latinos still voting for Republicans, especially the ones from Cuba. How can they not understand that Trump's "birthright citizenship" bullshit is aimed directly at their kids? (Yes, I know he can't do that without a constitutional amendment which he's never going to get now, but it's a fair indicator of what he will try next.)

    Truth in that - but still, things have changed. I grew up with a strong sense of a govt 'safety net' - and no sense that only winners mattered and failure was a crushing personal responsibility. I don't think today's teenagers feel the same way.

    The safety net has definitely been whisked away.

    Unfortunately it appears Cruz has held Texistan, but Democrats flipped House seats in Texas, along with their state legislator seats. Cruz may have won in Texas, but overall Dems did, as they were never supposed to be that close, let alone flipping other seats.
