Wrap of up omassive Republican victories across America this year, 2011

All you smart mouth democrats take a look and I will supply the crying towels.  2012 will be even better for Republicans. All from Ballotpedia.

"Incumbents in both parties dominated the polls. Early analysis shows that 96.6 percent of incumbents who ran November 8 won re-election. Out of the 353 incumbents who ran, only 14 - 11 Democrats and 3 Republicans - were defeated. 170 incumbents faced no major party opposition, all but guaranteeing them re-election.

Republican 0 3 3

The numbers tell a more nuanced story when looking at seats where an incumbent did not run. Unofficial results are that of the 84 open seats, Republicans won 62 (73.8%) of them. In 2010, Republicans won 61.9% of the open seat races.
