So, I was very pessimistic that the Democrats could take both Georgia seats.
I don't think they would have taken both in November. What happened between November and now is why they lost.
Actually when I talked about the lost opportunity for the Democrats to win senate seats in November, I wasn't referring to Georgia... I was referring to Maine (where republican Collins was extremely unpopular) and North Carolina (where there were multiple predictions that the state would flip to the Democrats). But both senate seats stayed Republican. Those losses were the most annoying.
