PSL: ‘Election results: right-wing shift or anger at the status quo?’

Brian Becker at PSLweb.org:

Class-wide struggle is brewing

Do the Nov. 2 election results signal a major shift to the right and a resurgence of conservatism among the people? Is that what the capture of 66 House seats by the Republicans indicates?
