    As I mentioned earlier today,

    When you examine the data, there is only one word that accurately describes the midterm results.  The word is MANDATE.  When you look at the turnovers at the federal and state level, it wasn't even close.  Republicans got ZERO. Zip. Nada. Zilch. Nuthin. Not.A.Single.One.

    55% of Americans voted against Republicans running for Congress.
    59% of Americans voted against Republicans in Senate contests.
    62% of Americans voted against Republicans running for governor.

    Adding insult to injury, Independents broke 2 to 1 for Democratic candidates.
