What is true, is that moderate Republicans lost their seats and more stridently left-wing Democrats gained seats. So it is more polarized.

Is this all bad?

Not to me. For one, some of those Rs were Paulies and they could form a coalition on military spending. On other issues, the Rs still have the majority, but will the RINOS coalesce with more strident leftists? I dunno. I just know, that Obama's agenda being blocked is the lesser of two evils because Republicans act more like Republicans with a D in the WH. Congress really has more power than a president because they can de-fund things. That is if they have a spine, like they're showing on this gun issue.
