Democratic Wins in Congress, 2006-2008

November 10th, 2008

Before the 2006 midterm election, this is what the balance of power looked like in Congress:


Democrats: 201
Republicans: 230


Democrats: 45
Republicans: 55

And what it looks like after the 2008 election, just two years later:


Democrats: 255
Republicans: 174


Democrats: 55~58
Republicans: 40~43

Now, look at those numbers and tell me that Democrats in Congress haven’t been given a big, fat mandate.
