By any measurement, Democrats are putting a historic blue wave beatdown on Donald Trump and the Republican Party.
Sam Wang tweeted:
The NYT currently projects a national popular-vote margin of D+9.2%. The largest popular margin since 2008, larger than waves of 1994, 2006, 2010, 2014.
By historical standards, this a popular wave. pic.twitter.com/4hw71hieVN

Trump will blame Republicans and everyone else, but the blue wave has arrived. Democrats have made taking back the House a reality, and we can now let the investigations of Trump begin.
