And, for Joe Biden and the Democratic Party to be in such trouble, according to the pundits….
Not a bad night.

Across the country tonight, democracy won and MAGA lost.
Voters vote. Polls don’t. Now let’s go win next year. Donate to join us:

I’ve seen enough: in a victory for the pro-choice side, Ohio Issue 1, a measure to establish a right to an abortion in the state constitution, passes.
From President Biden:
Tonight, Americans once again voted to protect their fundamental freedoms – and democracy won.
In Ohio, voters protected access to reproductive health in their state constitution. Ohioans and voters across the country rejected attempts by MAGA Republican elected officials to impose extreme abortion bans that put the health and lives of women in jeopardy, force women to travel hundreds of miles for care, and threaten to criminalize doctors and nurses for providing the health care that their patients need and that they are trained to provide. This extreme and dangerous agenda is out-of-step with the vast majority of Americans.
My Administration will continue to protect access to reproductive health care and call on Congress to restore the protections of Roe v. Wade in federal law once and for all.

I’ve seen enough: Andy Beshear (D) wins reelection in #KYGOV, defeating Daniel Cameron (R).

There we have it! Virginia Democrats have just FLIPPED the Virginia House of Delegates and now officially have the majority control in both the House AND the Senate. Virginia Republicans and Glenn Younkin lost badly tonight. This is absolutely huge.

Hinds Co. Circuit Clerk Wallace is giving update. They ran out of ballots AND toner today which exacerbated the issues. They have multiple TYPES of ballots coming in tonight. Some paper, some electric. Going to be some hand counting. Going to take a long time. Lawyers everywhere.

So let me get this right, if Beshear had lost it would’ve been Biden’s fault. But he won solidly annddd that’s not at all because of Biden right, but despite him 🤦🏾♂️ you people are absurd. So many of the so-called political strategists on tv are inane.

The media is trying to play us for fools. Their logic:
If Democrats were to do poorly tonight, it would show how unpopular Joe Biden is.
However, if Democrats do well, it has nothing to do with Joe Biden.
It’s all horseshit, folks.

Under Biden, Dems have won…
– PA (Governor, AG, US Senate Seat, State House)
– MI (Governor, AG, SoS, State Legislature)
– WI (Governor, AG, State Supreme Court)
– AZ (Governor, AG, US Senate Seat)
– KY (Governor)
Can we stop bed-wetting now?

RESULT: Ohio has voted to legalize marijuana.
This is Issue 2. Results look similar to the margin by which weed was legalized in Michigan a few years back.

This is big in NJ. GOPs pinned their hopes on picking up this Senate seat, but they not only failed, they lost both of the Assembly seats they held here.

The Democratic Party has its faults but it’s the only party that represents and acts in our interests some of the time and there’s always room for improvement.
This is hilarious😂😂😂
