Possible Election Fraud in North Carolina
As reported by NPR

To the surprise of absolutely no informed person, itís the Republicans under (justified) suspicion.

Re: Look at how much worse Trump did than Romney in Texas (House races even closer)

YOu seem to be ignoring the main overall fact about Midterm elections which is that they always reverse the wins of the incumbent administration, and in this case Trump fared a lot better than previous Presdients, Clinton losing 52 house seats and seven Senate seats, Obama losing 63 House seats and some number of Senate seats, and something similar was true for the Bushes, while Trump lost only 30 something House seats and actually gained a couple or three Senate seats.

There is one number that stands out

"The gains that propelled Democrats to retake the majority in the House come on the back of the largest margin of victory, in terms of total votes, that either party has seen in a midterm election. Democrats held the prior record for vote margin, which came in 1974 with the backdrop of the Watergate scandal."

The House elections are as close as you get to a national vote in a midterm, and it was the largest win by either party in modern history. What Democrats face is gerrymandering which is why they didn't have the largest seat win.

Interesting way to cancel out the true statistic about the number of seats. For what purpose I can't imagine but the Left is weird.

All you need to do is look at the last presidential election. Hilary Clinton won by 3 million votes but Trump won the electoral college. Democrats already face a demographic hurdle when it comes to states. Within some states controlled by Republicans there has been gerrymandering so that Republicans get more seats than they would in a fair election. This is why the number of seats is not as indicative as the overall vote.
