(Worthy News) - Democratic House candidates received more than 8.6 million votes than did their Republican counterparts — the biggest such midterm margin for either party in over 40 years.

According to an NBC News report current as of noon Wednesday, Democratic House candidates got 58,990,609 votes to Republicans’ 50,304,975 — a margin of 53.1 percent to 45.2 percent.

With two races still outstanding, that 8-million vote edge translated into a Democratic advantage in the next U.S. House of 234 to 199 — a 38-seat pickup over the partisan split in the current Congress. [ Source: Washington Times (Read More...) ]

  1. Yes, but Republicans strengthened their hold on the more powerful Senate ..... and President Trump is going to make the Supreme Court even more conservative with the next appointment.
