People are going to argue popular versus electoral votes for eternity. And this year’s election is going to go down in the books as key to both sides of the argument.
Regardless, Americans were ready for a change, ready to diminish the power of the overly bureaucratic, ridiculously power-hungry democratic party.
Proof? Election 2016 ushered a record-breaking number of republicans into office, thanks to the voters’ commitment to cleaning house of libs.
As CNSnews.com reports:
Republicans added to their historic 2014 gains in the nation’s state legislatures with the addition of five state House chambers and two state Senate chambers in last week’s election, while Democratic control was reduced to levels not seen since the Civil War.
Republicans are now in control of a record 67 (68 percent) of the 98 partisan state legislative chambers in the nation, more than twice the number (31) in which Democrats have a majority, according to the bipartisan National Conference of State Legislatures (NCSL).
“That’s more than at any other time in the history of the Republican Party,” according to NCSL. “They also hold more total seats, well over 4,100 of the 7,383, than they have since 1920.”
If Trump’s election didn’t scream “ready for change,” this certainly did.
