The economy is in the crapper, despite mild improvements. We react against that which we deem in power. What does that mean and what has it meant since the Civil War? It means in a midterm election we vote against the party in control. Who’s in control but the Democrats. No matter what one might think about who got us into this mess, spin and desires for change will make sweeping changes. Official results won’t come out for 21-30 days, but generally the night-of counts are right on.
