A simple majority will not suffice when a vote requires a super majority. Voters have been rejecting Democratic candidates in historic numbers at all levels of government for almost a decade now. If voters disapprove of Democratic obstruction, they very well may grant Republicans a super majority in response.



You say this but in reality that is not true. It looks like voters are rejecting conservative ideologies once they noticed that a party of "No" for the last 10 years can't figure out how to do anything.

Well, let's look at the numbers. In 2008, Democrats controlled the House, the Senate, and the Oval Office. In 2010, Democrats lost control of the House. In 2014, the Democrats lost control of the Senate. In 2016, Democrats lost control of the Oval Office.

Between 2008 and 2016 during the Obama administration, governor offices controlled by Democrats fell from 28 to 16.

In state legislatures, Democrats lost over 950 seats. Republicans control 32 state legislatures. Democrats control 14, and 4 are split.

Republicans control all government in 26 states. Democrats control only 8 states. The remaining 16 states are split.

In what way do you figure that voters are rejecting conservative Republicans?
