So what does a Red Wave actually look like?

The 2010 United States elections were held on Tuesday, November 2, 2010, in the middle of President Barack Obama's first term. Approximately 82.5 million people voted. The Democratic Party suffered massive defeats in many national and state level elections, with many seats switching to Republican Party control. Although the President's party usually loses congressional, statewide and local seats in midterm elections, the 2010 midterm election season featured some of the biggest losses since the Great Depression.

The Republican Party gained 63 seats in the U.S. House of Representatives, recapturing the majority, ousting Nancy Pelosi as Speaker, and making it the largest seat change since 1948 and the largest for any midterm election since the 1938 midterm elections. The Republicans gained six seats in the U.S. Senate and also gained 680 seats in state legislative races.
