So, what happens if this rout holds up, and Democrats score a trifecta that includes a 100 seat House majority and 60 seats in the Senate? In the extended entry, I take a look at the macro political ramifications of such a massive Democratic rout.

Rout? Rout? Rout?*

1. a disorderly crowd; noisy mob; rabble
2. a disorderly flight or retreat, as of defeated troops to be put to rout
3. an overwhelming defeat

transitive verb

1. to put to disorderly flight
2. to defeat overwhelmingly


My emphasis.
