Republicans shocked the nation on Tuesday evening.
The much-hyped “blue wave” turned out to be less of a tsunami and more of a light sprinkling, as the GOP grew in the Senate and lost minimally in the House.
Historically, the party of the sitting president doesn’t do well in the midterms in either the lower or upper chamber.
And yet, while the GOP ceded control of the House to Democrats, the loss could’ve been much worse.
As for President Trump’s chances in 2020, things are certainly looking up, as a Republican will remain governor in swing states Ohio and Florida.
What does filmmaker and noted Trump-basher Michael Moore think of Dems’ chances?
From Free Beacon:
Liberal activist and filmmaker Michael Moore on Wednesday said President Donald Trump is a “tumor” on the political system but predicted he will hold onto the White House in 2020 if Democrats don’t run a “beloved American” or non-politician.
Moore appeared on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” to discuss the midterm election results from Tuesday night and how they will affect the 2020 election. He said Trump is a “tumor on our democracy” but noted Democratic victories caused the “tumor” to shrink last night.
At the moment, the top choice for Democrat presidential nominee in 2020 is “none of the above.”
Not Joe Biden. Not Eric Holder.
Not Hillary Clinton or Michael Avenatti.
Not Kamala Harris, Cory Booker, or Elizabeth Warren.
Not Michael Bloomberg, Bernie Sanders, or Amy Klobuchar.
From The Hill:
The survey, conducted among 680 registered voters who identified themselves as Democrats or independents, found that “none of the above” was the most popular choice among potential 2020 challengers to President Trump.
Thirty percent of the sample said they would prefer that “none of the above” become the Democratic nominee when asked to choose among former Vice President Joe Biden, Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D), Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders (I), New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker (D), California Sen. Kamala Harris (D), former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
65 million people voted for Hillary Clinton in 2016, and failed Senate candidate Beto O’Rourke just broke every single one of their hearts.
"I will not be a candidate for president in 2020,” Beto O'Rourke tells @GarrettHaake.

How about Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper?
From The Hill:
“I’m the governor of Colorado and I’m gonna run for president,” Hickenlooper said during a stop in New Hampshire, where he’s campaigning for down-ballot Democrats.

Is Hillary gearing up for a third presidential run?
Clinton recently declared she’d “like to be president,” and is confident a Democrat will defeat Trump in 2020.
Here’s the scoop:
“Well, I— well, I’d like to be president,” she admitted, bursting into laughter and cackles.
