Nov. 9, 2018 — A blue tsunami for Democrats? Not exactly, but Tuesday's general election would qualify as a "blue wave."

Democrats picked up 35 Congressional seats; flipped crucial gubernatorial seats in states like Michigan, Nevada and Wisconsin; and buffered their Senatorial losses with at least one pickup in Nevada. As of today, it's unclear who will win pivotal races (for either governor or senator) in Arizona, Florida, Georgia and Mississippi.

For the most part, voters were down with the Democrats' overall campaign theme of protecting health care, while anger over the GOP's trillion-dollar "tax cut" was a lesser factor.

Another major issue for voters: holding Donald Trump accountable for possible Russian collusion to win the Electoral College in 2016 and obstruction of justice. Now that the Democrats will run crucial committees such as House Judiciary, those may get underway in January.

In today's podcast, Modern Times Publisher John Guzzon and Karen Weil, editor at large, discuss election results, the surprises/upsets and what it may mean for next year.
