    ' “Donald Trump is not going to lose Texas, I can tell you that,” the president scoffed during a campaign stop in Dallas last October. But simply offering such a prediction was acknowledging the stakes: should Trump lose Texas, he has no path to victory. The electoral earthquake would shake the national Republican party to the ground.

    Even a close Trump victory here is unlikely to protect the state GOP from further losses. '

    2 years, the incumbent President's party has always lost seats in the Congress during the midterm.

    Yes, but given there is a backlash after 2 years for every President, especially starting with Bill Clinton, I would be amazed if the Dems held all three for more than 2 years. IIRC every time a party takes all three since Bill Clinton, the infighting alone dooms the Reps or Dems. Factions within parties are dangerous. Especially for a Dem coalition of moderate Reps, moderate Dems, and socialist progressives.

    If POT:S wins California and New York, or even gets close, the dem party will be in complete collapse.

    peace to you

    We'll see. Senate goes by states, most of which are or lean Rep. The House could be a bloodbath against the Reps though, we'll see in a few weeks.

    POT:S will win New York and make a strong showing in California.

    Never underestimate the voters whose lives have been destroyed by riots and lockdowns.

    peace to you

    Bye bye America the great. We will become a socialist country and lose many of our freedoms. Severe economic recession, possibly depression.

    Usually. 2002 was an exception due to 9/11/2001.

    Not just the next four years. If we lose the senate and white house, after a president who has done more to further the conservative agenda than any president in 30 years, even while leftist extremists and anarchists and socialists have overtaken the democrat party, it gives a very bleak picture of what the political leaning of the whole country is.

    But losing seats does not necessarily result in flipping control of a house of Congress.
