        ...there is now a GOP House that prevents anything from happening that any voters could perceive as Democratic overreach.

        On top of that, the GOP House reminds voters they hate Republicans, which they easily shelved as a concern during the one-party rule of Obama's first two years.

        And state-level waves are rare, although not unheard of.  We can have them in Virginia because state and local elections are staggered in odd-numbered years, opposite the federal cycles.  It's much harder for state-level waves in states that have their state elections in federal years.  But it's certainly not impossible.
