In the betting world, a winning wager involves selecting the horse that you think will finish the race in first place. The Republicans won US Government control with a majority rule in Congress and The White House.

With a place bet, you win if your selected horse finishes the race in either first or second place. The GOP put all their money on what they thought would be a winning horse with a well-known name and a face.

A place bet pays less than a win bet on the same horse because the entire pool is split between two groups. In November will the GOP not only lose their place but also their faith realize its time for an about-face?
