What does it mean? Fox News team breaks down takeaways from disappointing election results

With many key races still undecided, it is already a bleak morning for Republicans who were anticipating a red tsunami or at least a red wave as American voters got their first chance at a national referendum on the disastrous presidency of Joe Biden and one-party Democrat rule.

After early results from Florida where Governor Ron DeSantis clobbered Democrat Charlie Crist by nearly 20 points and Georgia voters resoundingly rejected a Stacey Abrams governorship signaled a good night for conservatives, the mood soon turned to disappointment as the predicted repudiation of Biden’s ultra-radical party and its ruinous policies failed to materialize.

Early on Wednesday morning, a somber crew at Fox News broke down the results and what they mean going forward, with the GOP still having a good chance of retaking the House with a very slim majority and the Senate too close to call.

“In one of the supreme ironies is, is that if you add up the number of seats in which Republicans are now leading in the rest of the country that have not yet been called by somebody, it gets you to about 222,” Karl Rove said during the conservative network’s extended election coverage. “Which is exactly what the Democrats have today,” a five-seat majority.

“So we’re, we are likely to find ourselves in a place where we are governing the House a narrow lead from the Republican side just like the Democrats have, the difference is we’re not going to be out there trying to transform America by passing legislation that can be signed by the president of the United States.”

“I would say, you know, for both sides, you will have friends who cannot possibly believe that anybody that has any sense would ever vote for a Democrat, and you’ll have Democrats who say I cannot believe that anybody who has any sort of moral compass would ever vote for a Republican,” Dana Perino said. “And the two sides are like so far apart so I would just hope that everyone has  a little bit of grace, understanding and maybe just look and try to read a little bit more into these results and see what people are really thinking because America does feel like there is no order…”

“Two concepts, I think voters want a more populist conservative agenda as Kellyanne indicated,” said Ben Domenech, referring to Fox News regular Kellyanne Conway’s earlier remarks. “But I also think that they’re tired of chaos, I think that they want normalcy.”

“And I think that a lot of these candidates seemed more chaotic than normal and I think that hurt Republicans in a major way all across the country,” he added.

Fox News continues to track election results and will provide updates as decisions are announced.

Other good news besides DeSantis’ big win and Abrams’s defeat is that Texans rejected the candidacy of quirky Democrat social media favorite Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke by resoundingly reelecting Gov. Greg Abbott, and Trump-backed J.D. Vance beat Democrat Tim Ryan in Ohio’s Senate race.

The bad news is that Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and her fellow Squad members all won their elections handily, a sign that the left-wing extremism of the Democratic Party is here to stay.

Results will continue to trickle in throughout the day, be sure to keep checking in at BPR for updates.
