I thought it would be a lot closer than what it was. Zeldin got destroyed as Hochul's base came out and voted in numbers. That's a shame.

Can't blame Long Island though. Both Nassau and Suffolk went red with all red congressmen winning. Even Staten Island of all places went red.

This state sucks. The future is what's happening in Florida.



Base from where? The city? Cause she’s doing so many great things for them. Chat Icon

I am really surprised even though I don't live in NY anymore. I can only go by what I hear from my family and friends and old coworkers who are based in the city. But how could anyone think she has done good things for the state and want more of the same thing? I am sorry.



When you look at the election map - she won NYC and a handful of other counties (including Erie I believe where she's from/Buffalo?) But the state looks predominately red, it's just where the higher populations are.



The image of the voting distribution within the counties for the state is infuriating. There are 62 counties in NY and it looks like roughly 10 or so were blue. How is that democracy??

Forget party lines. I'm over that whole thing. Both parties are chock full of lying chumps. I voted for change. Quality of life sucks here. It is overly expensive, infrastructure is crumbling, it is unsafe, education is disorganized and crime is rampant but hey! let's just keep voting for more of the same!



She won 13 of 62 counties. Those 13 counties have large populations. That’s all she needed. Everyone gets a vote. She got the most votes. That is democracy.



What I don’t understand is that where she won, they’ve been experiencing so much crime and yet they still voted for her. It’s nuts!

It wouldn't have mattered who ran on the Republican ticket. Nor did anything about her or her policies matter. Her base would have voted for anyone and against anyone on the other side to keep the status quo.
So I hope they enjoy it.




This exactly.

Staten Island has been red for all of recent history.

I disagree. I considered voting for Zeldin based on crime rates and bail reform. But then I did my research and he is a gun enthusiast with an A rating from the NRA. He voted against the assault weapons ban and is calling to repeal the SAFE Act which prevents mentally ill people from purchasing guns. He also wants to repeal ‘Red flag laws’ which allow for weapons to be removed from a person deemed to be a threat to him or herself or others.

That was enough for me. Think of all the school shootings that have happened in recent years. We all cry after the fact that we don't do enough for mental health and someone should have done something to stop the shooters. Why would any sane person want to make it easier for mentally ill people to get guns? There was no way I could vote for this person.

I'm sure there are people like you who do thoughtful research but the vast majority, I feel, do not. And this goes for BOTH sides.

I’m not losing sleep over it if that’s what u mean, why? Because of reasons I’ve stated before. However I do live in NY and feel very bad for the people that are affected by this and by the measures that will take place in the near future.

Maybe because we would like to visit the city also and many are afraid to do so and bring their children there.

She got votes because these people most likely do their homework. Many have no clue what is going on around them on a daily basis, let alone who they are voting for and what their stances are.

If you look at NY State, most counties are red. It's NYC that decides for the rest of the state. I am very disappointed.

The city is hurting and isn’t a place I would take my kids which I used to like to go for the holidays. I am just so disappointed in humanity.



I would not venture there with my kids either. I actually have to go to a Dr. appt in the city next month. I am debating just walking the 20 blocks from Penn since I hear horror stories about the subway. It has changed a lot since I last worked in the city in 2008.

Take an Uber or cab. All our friends in NYPD recommend you NOT getting on the subway under any circumstance.
Shame too because I used to ride it alone at night all the time and while you always have to be vigilant no matter where you are, I never felt unsafe.

I am very happy our newly redrawn Congressional district swung red and the incumbent, who told people to combat inflation by eating cheaper food like Chef Boyardee, lost.



WHAT?! I missed that gem.



We are in the Hudson Valley and the incumbent, and chair of the DCCC was asked questions about inflation last week and said that. It was still a close race.

I am happy though that all of the political ads will finally be over!

You think we got it bad, gotta wonder what the hell PA was thinking. I think Democrat run states are filled with idiots who can care less as long as they get whatever free stuff they can get. And that whole abortion thing is a laugh because the people who need to stop having kids won't because the more they have, the more freebies they get from the government.

This world in whole is S$$T.

Good luck with that as they can’t admit how bad Biden and the Democrats are and what they are doing to this country.
