Everything broke the President's way in the swing states, winning by 2% in Ohio, 3% in Virginia, 45K in Florida and comfortable margins in Michigan, Wisconsin and Iowa.
Too big and too widespread to chalk up to cheating. The swing voter seems to prefer the status quo.
On top of that, all the balls bounced the Democrats way in the Senate; only Nebraska switched to the GOP and IN, MA and Maine all shifted to the Democrats. A North Dakota seat that seemed in the bag for Republicans is staying Democratic in a squeaker and hopeful shots in VA, OH and WI went for naught, not to mention own-goals in IN and MO where abortion faux pas (and media over-reaction, but that comes with the territory, sadly) did in what should have been two wins.
The House managed to stay Republican. That will create something of a break on any additional lurches to the left, but will give us the status quo at best and chaotic gridlock at worst.
We will seemingly get the start of "Obamacare" barring a second civil war. No, it isn't worth having it.
