Most political observers predicted a GOP takeover of the US Senate. Very few, however, predicted that the take over would be this definitive.
The GOP picked up 7 seats, many of them easier than anticipated, and currently sit with a 52 seat majority in the Senate.
With polling showing that the run off election in Louisiana is leaning GOP, there is a good chance that they will end up with 53 seats.
Even more disturbing for the Democrats is that even in the seats they held, particularly in Virginia and New Hampshire, the race was a lot more competitive than most thought it would be.
Senator Harry Reid, it is time to move out of the Majority Leader office, your reign has come to an end.
