  •  Interesting point, but if this is true, then (0+ / 0-)

    why did the rethugs keep control of the house with even more of a majority than they had before?  Somebody had to vote for em.  I figured the gop would keep the majority, but I thought it would be by a much narrower margin.

    •  I don't understand (0+ / 0-)

      your question.  We had a net gain of 7 house seats, so how is that more of a GOP majority?
      And I wasn't saying there are no conservative old people, just that those people were always conservative.
      As to why the GOP kept the house: redistricting makes incumbents nearly invulnerable.

    •  Rethugs still have a majority, but less, not more. (0+ / 0-)

      (but not much less).  According to CNN
      Pre-election: 190 D to 240 R.
      Post election: 194 D to 233 R
      (8 seats undecided).
