Tuesday’s midterm elections still have several different important races that have not yet been called for. Even who will control Congress is not yet clear and yet, and outside of those clear losses there are many people who were not on the ballot who have been affected by the so far results of the elections.
Among the clear winners of the election so far is President Biden, who did much better in his first midterm than both previous Democratic presidents. Before the election, it was assumed that the Democrats would lose 25 to 30 seats in the House, but so far that has not happened. This means that Biden has had a much better midterm election than both Barack Obama and Bill Clinton did during their time in office.
Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R)
A clear winner both on the ballot and off it is Florida Governor Ron DeSantis (R). DeSantis did not only win his own election, but he also appears to have been the driving force behind the wave in Florida. In fact, for the first time in close to twenty years the heavily Hispanic Miami-Dade County has turned red. Many expect this to be further evidence that DeSantis will place a bid for the White House.
Former President Trump
Former President Trump is one of the people who did not get the results they may have hoped for during this midterm election. Many of the key candidates he endorsed, such as Mehmet Oz in Pennsylvania, did not manage to win their races. Many see this as evidence that Trump’s hold on the GOP and influence over people is waning.
