Actual results from Nov 2020, Democrats win the presidency, lose 13 house seats, 2 state legislatures, 1 governorship and gain 1 senate seat trailing the GOP in the senate 50-48. In Jan 2021, the Democrats picked up both Georgia senate seats for a 50-50 tie.

The Democrats were lucky due to Georgia having the unique runoff law of if no candidate receives 50% plus 1 vote, there will be a runoff. In any other state, Republicans, Perdue and Loffler would have won those seat in Nov without the runoff law letting the Republican maintain control of the senate.Even with ranked voting, the Libertarian candidate received 2.4% of the vote, both Republicans would have won in Nov without the runoff.

I like the runoff law. It's still in place and hasn't been tinkered with.

It's high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first instead of their political party. For way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.
