It’s not just Donald Trump who won his race – it’s a triple sweep for Republicans for the White House, the Senate and the House.
Republicans kept the Senate by a slim lead of 51, and in the House, it was more of the GOP domination same. The political make-up there is now 236 Republicans to 191 Democrats.
The Wall Street Journal reported evangelicals had a large voice in this year’s election, with more than 80 percent of that bloc coming out in support of the billionaire businessman.
From the Wall Street Journal:
“More than 80% of white evangelical and born-again Christians voted for Mr. Trump, according to national exit polling—a larger percentage than backed Mitt Romney, John McCain or George W. Bush, the GOP candidates in the past three elections.”
It’s like Brexit, in America.
Look at how the Washington Post predicts the future of the country:
“Under a Donald Trump presidency, a Republican Congress and White House will be able to attempt sweeping rollbacks of President Obama’s landmark items, including the health-care law known as Obamacare and the nuclear deal with Iran struck last year. The Senate Democrats’ threat of a filibuster would, in many instances, be the only viable way to block such legislative efforts.”
Let’s not forget immigration and the borders, and the opportunity that presents with a triple-sweep of the three branches of government.
As one Fox News guest said early Wednesday morning: “What a massive middle finger to the establishment.”
