Democrats had a decent haul on election night but since Election Day the Democrats have had A SPECTACULAR RUN!
In the US Senate Democrats picked up two seats since Election Day.
** In Montana Senator Jon Tester — who was behind on election day — had a huge haul overnight and won by 5 points.
** In Arizona Taliban-supporting Marxist Kyrsten Sinema was declared the winner a week after votes were cast after being behind on election night
** In Florida Democrats discovered a secret stash of 83,000 votes since election day! Senator Bill Nelson only down 12,000 votes. Despite the Democrats’ best efforts it looks like Scott will win in Florida.
Democrats have performed even better in the US House.
Since election day Democrats added close to 17 seats from Republicans who were winning on Election Day.

It looks like Republicans have only picked up 2-3 seats since election day.
Democrats are set to pick up 19 seats since election day.
Republicans will only pick up 5.
It’s not who casts the votes that counts — It’s who counts the votes.
Democrats lead in several remaining US House seats.
The Daily Mail reported earlier this week:
As ballot-counting continues, Democrats have extended their lead in seven out of 10 undecided House races.
Democrats gained ground in two undecided House races in Orange County, California, raising the possibility of a Democratic sweep of four closely contested congressional races in the one-time Republican stronghold.
In the 45th District in Orange County, Democrat Katie Porter jumped into a 261-vote lead over Republican Rep Mimi Walters, after trailing the incumbent since Election Day.
And in the 39th District, anchored in Orange County, Democrat Gil Cisneros tightened the gap with Republican Young Kim.
Earlier, Democrats claimed the seats of Republican Reps Dana Rohrabacher in the county’s 48th District and retiring Darrell Issa in the 49th District, which cuts through the southern end of the county.
First-time candidate Josh Harder also defeated four-term Republican US Rep Jeff Denham Tuesday in California’s farm belt, giving Democrats their fourth pickup of a GOP House seat in California.
Harder, 32, a venture capitalist, had anchored his campaign to Denham’s vote against the Affordable Care Act, while arguing that he would push for universal health care in Congress.
He also argued that Denham and other Washington Republicans ignored poverty and health care in the agricultural 10th District in California’s Central Valley.
