    ... "not completely losing" as "winning."

    They point to the House and say "see, Republicans won the House because it was conservative!", ignoring the fact that House Democratic candidates got over a million more votes than their Republican counterparts. They pretend gerrymandering didn't exist.
    Even this is a delusion.  Republicans didn't "win the House."

    What happened is, even though they lost seats -- and Democrats gained seats -- Republicans didn't lose the House.  

    That's not the same as a "win."  It's "not completely losing."
