If you have been following the political scene in the U.S. since the election of Donald Trump you will notice that the Democrats haven't changed any of their strategies it's as if they didn't learn anything from 2016.

The main keywords of the past two years have been Russia, Trump's sex life, and racism alongside the exact same words and phrases that they used in the 2016 election. I mean why didn't they spend all this time and resources in at least advocating for someone like Bernie Sanders and his views -who I'm not a big fan of by the way I'm libertarian- since at least he has a shot.

They even started back in May to talk about how the polls show a new democratic wave in the midterms. I'm sorry but do you remember what the polls showed about Hillary in 2016? 

This golden video from 2016 after the presidential elections by Steven Crowder still holds in this midterm elections

Obviously this is after the fact, but they did win the house. If anything, most people haven't learned anything. American politics can be summed up with:
1) Presidential election: The opposite party from the incumbent gains a massive victory, winning or maintaining both houses of congress and the presidency.
2) The next election results in the other party gaining seats in one or both houses, possibly taking control of one or both
3) The presidential election can go one of two ways: A) Incumbent barely wins and congress remains the same as the result in step 2, with the opposing party gaining more seats or B) Opposing party wins the presidency and congress, basically a repeat of step one.
4) If 3A) happened then the opposing party wins both houses of congress for sure, with the president's last two years having to deal with the opposite party in control of congress.
Repeat. Never have American elections deviated much from this pattern for the past 30 years.

Neither party has controlled both houses of congress outright for longer than 3 house terms in probably half a century. Neither party has controlled the presidency for more than 3 terms since FDR and Truman.

We're as predictable as fuck as this point, so you shouldn't have been surprised that the dems took control of the house considering the fact no party controls both houses for longer than 3 house of reps terms, and the GOP already controlled both houses for 3 terms... so, that's why 2018 happened the way it did.
