We could do with a new thread on this.

The Guardian's website is reporting that an exit poll this evening is showing:

23% said they voted to support the Tea Party
18% said they voted against the Tea Party
55% said it was not a factor in their decision

Kentucky and Indiana have both been called for the Republicans. Expected, but early calls. The exit polls indicated a heavy heavy loss for the Dems.

Not good.

Nobody seems to realize how evil the tea party are and how bad they will be for the wider world if they actually get any sort of power. I'd actually have Bush any day of the week over those retards.

The tea party are a dangerous movement given the islamaphobia that some of their candidates have engaged in.

Imagine if Sarah Palin got elected to the Presidency? Now that would be dreadful for the world.

On the contrary they are supporting personal-freedom from Big Government with its tax-and-spend, PC agenda.

Exit poll in WV: 64% of those favouring repeal of health-care voted for Raese to 34% for Manchin. 57% in WV want repeal. 41% support Tea Party.

2 KY Dem House seats likely to be held.

Yeah theyre supporting personal-slavery by Big Business.

Just look at whose funding the bastards.

Any more predictions or polls on the outcome. Even Karl Rove stated that Republicans won't make the gains they were hoping for.

Snigger snigger at the 'evil' remarks above. Listen lads keep your silly immature opinions to yourselves, no one cares. This thread is more for those who are interested in results.
Rand Paul winks Kentucky, so there will be a Paul caucus in the next congress. Excellent.

What's funny about democracy, is that history shows, that practically every single Party that got to Government on a platform of supporting personal freedom from big Government, created a huge Government apparatus, to ensure those freedoms. Some of the countries with the most "personal freedoms" have huge state apparatus's

Stephen (R) leading Lynch in the NH Governor's race count 49-48 so far. I think Sink and Scott are tied 49 each in the Florida Governor's race count so far. GOP likely to win Senate seats in PA, Illinois, Indiana, Florida, Kentucky and Wisconsin but losing in Nevada, California, Washington. Fox believes the Senate may stay Democratic.

Sky are reporting that two Tea Party senators have taken Kentucky and South Carolina although both were in Republican hands already.

Republicans have won Indiana from the Democrats.

Fox projects Ohio Senate goes Republican by a "decisive" margin. The Governor's race too close to call. Scott (R) now ahead 53-43 in Florida. Alaska will be very interesting, as Murkowski is a write-in Independent candidate. For her to win, voters will have to write her name correctly.... ;)

Will be very disapointed if the GOP loose Nevada, Rasmussen had Angle 5 points clear in last poll. California was always on the cards to go blue.
