Hopes are high for a ‘blue wave’ which will see the balance of power in the Senate and the House Of Representatives swing back to the Democrats, limiting the damage Donald Trump and the Republican party can do over the next two years, especially among people who seem to think that a lot of Americans aren’t a bunch of right-wing, selfish, xenophobic bible-thumping zealots.
