Dems won MORE VOTES and MORE SEATS tonight, in both the House and the Senate. The Senate represents states not people. It was formed as a platitude to the racist South and less populous states. Voters cast ten million more votes for Democrats in the Senate than Republicans. Minority government continues for now.

HOUSE:
Dems ~48 million votes, 230 seats
Rs ~45M votes, 205 seats

SENATE:
Dems ~42M votes, 22 seats
Rs ~32M votes, 13 seats

There were 35 Senate seats up for grabs. Dems won approx 22 of them, Rs won approx 13. Some of those 13 were previously held by Dems, so Rs had a net gain, but the fact is Dems actually had more victories.
