The Republican Victory Is A Rejection Of President Obama

President Obama’s net negative rating across key battleground states was a staggering 30 points.

With numbers like that, it’s not at all surprising that the Republicans took control of the Senate tonight, especially considering the polling going into today’s contest.

The GOP has been ahead or tied in 11 key Senate contests for the past few weeks. While it looked like Democrats were going to hold North Carolina, the unpopularity of the president and the Democrat agenda was overpowering.

They have done very little to stop the wasting of money on assistance programs, useless government studies, redundant agencies, and myriad of costly middle management positions in the government and its contractors. The trend over the Obama years is to voice loudly against something, maybe do something half hearted, then back off and go with the Democrats.

    I do not see them doing much with their new majority. Not that it will matter, with Obama's pen and abuse of executive authority.
