As polling stations across America begin to close, the sun is also setting on Democrats’ hopes of sweeping the day.
Predictions of a red wave now appear to be coming true as Republicans look to unseat their rivals as the count continues across the country.
And in Florida’s Miami-Dade County, for the political left alone, the early results were so dire that an MSNBC panel gasped audibly after seeing the numbers.
The panel’s shock was clearly audible as the district’s first voting results rolled across the screen, showing Senator Marco Rubio by a healthy 32,000 votes over opponent Val Demings. Watch the clip below.

Fetterman says Republicans will take the lead in early elections ahead of the “dramatic” overnight Democrat comeback
The shock of this body is understandable — early votes usually lean toward Democrats, and Miami-Dade voted Donald Trump by a wide margin in her failed 2016 presidential bid for Hillary Clinton. President Joe Biden also took over the county four years later.
With a Republican easily bagging a county that Democrats should have taken in the early vote, Democrats are right to fear a political bloodbath as vote counts continue.
However, times are changing. And it’s not just Florida that’s dumping the Democrats.
Will the Republicans win the midterm elections?
Yes: 96% (557 votes)
No: 4% (26 votes)
Guam was swept up in the red wave, voters gave up the boot to a left-wing candidate and elected Republican James Moylan as the island’s delegate.
Moylan has campaigned tirelessly against inflation and stressed the position in which Biden’s policies have left the island.
He is the first Republican to hold that office in 30 years.
The Grand Old Party candidates are poised to make gains in the continental states as well.
In the Southwest, Arizona Secretary of State Katie Hobbs’ bid for governor appears poised to collapse against the energy of Republican arsonist Kari Lake. The competition for John McCain’s old Senate seat, which Democrat Mark Kelly will occupy in a special election in 2020, is also unlikely to be a hit for the political left.
Kelly’s opponent Blake Masters promised to fire Mitch McConnell and install a new leadership for the Republicans after a win.
Other gubernatorial elections in Oregon and New York promise less than secure elections for the Democrats, while Republicans face an uphill battle in political contests in Georgia, Texas, Pennsylvania and other states.
As Democrats desperately try to increase the number of votes counted — whether the ballots are legitimate or not — it’s clear that any victories the party can achieve will be offset by outstanding Republican performances elsewhere.
In a worst-case scenario for leftists, the Red Wave could push Republicans further to victory across America, leaving Democrats even less power to face monumental shifts in American politics.
