Based on election results, you can throw out those old stereotypes

In another year when conventional thinking has taken a beating, voters in the 2020 election upended political norms and conventions. Many political professionals who expected a Blue Wave were surprised — no, shocked — because if there’s one cardinal rule in California politics, it’s that large turnout elections benefit Democrats. Yet, despite Joe Biden beating President Donald Trump by 5.1 million votes in a record turnout year in California, Republicans managed to flip three congressional seats...

House Already Won? Nancy Pelosi Thinks So, And Reaches For More

WASHINGTON (AP) — Speaker Nancy Pelosi once predicted she’d have the 2020 House Democratic majority secured by November — of 2019.

With control of the House hardly contested, Pelosi is working to fortify Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden and win extra House seats in case Congress is called on to resolve any Electoral College dispute with President Donald Trump.

MAGA Ambush of Liz Cheney Backfires

For the first time ever, Congress’ most MAGA contingent on Tuesday decided to test the rule that Rep.
