If you were keeping up with our election coverage last night, you probably already know that the results of this year's midterm election are already rocking the political landscape. If you didn't, you have a lot of catching up to do.

HuffPost has compiled a list of the 2010 election's biggest winners and losers to help you slog through the meaning and the repercussions of Tuesday's verdict.

Who won the biggest? Who lost the worst?

LOSER: Democratic Incumbents
1 of 11
Virtually every incumbent who went down on Tuesday was a Democrat, from Blue Dog Reps. Baron Hill (Ind.) and Stephanie Herseth-Sandlin (S.D.) to progressive Sen. Russ Feingold (Wis.) and Rep. Mary Jo Kilroy (Ohio). A rare Republican in this group was Rep. Joseph Cao.

Exit polls showed that voters were intensely worried about the state of the economy, frustrated with the federal government and didn't hold a favorable view of either party. As the party in power, however, Democrats faced the majority of voters' wrath.
