Although my knee-jerk reaction is to dismiss conspiracy theorists pretty quickly, I try to give them the benefit of the doubt by doing a little research into what they’re saying.

With all the primary elections going on around the country, there’s renewed talk about whether the Republicans will maintain their control over Congress, or if the Democrats will make inroads (or more). Regardless of your political ideology, this is an interesting question.
