[Ed. – The left, including the mainstream media, keeps flogging this “popular vote” theme because the popular vote is now the least transparent, least accountable, most manipulable statistic related to a round of voting. The evidence of fraud in the popular vote keeps growing, and the real truth is, we have no idea if the Democrats gained more legitimate individual votes in 2018 than Republicans did. The best bet is that the numbers cited by NBC are inaccurate.]
While votes are still being tallied, Democratic House candidates currently hold an 8,805,130 vote lead over Republicans as of Monday morning. The Democrats’ national margin of victory in House contests smashes the previous record of 8.7 million votes in 1974, won just months after President Richard Nixon resigned from office in disgrace amid the Watergate scandal.
Of the more than 111 million votes cast in House races nationwide, Democrats took 53.1 percent — retaking control of the House of Representatives by flipping nearly 40 seats — while Republicans received 45.2 percent of the vote.
