That is what Republican activist Janelle King and Democratic analyst Robin Johnson tell host Steve Clemons after the US midterms on November 8.

They pointed to several factors: no talk of widespread election fraud; voters on both sides generally preferred pragmatic candidates to hardliners; independent-minded voters split their ballots between candidates from either party; and people generally did not fall for fear-mongering messages from either party.
