What difference will the new Congress make?
Views varied widely by gender among Democrats, and just modestly among Republicans: Fully 74 percent of Democratic women said they were very concerned about women not being believed, compared with a smaller majority of Democratic men (56 percent). But their new footholds in suburban districts at least appear to correspond with a longer-term realignment of Democrats and Republicans into urban and rural strongholds.
Facing a divided government and the threat of House committee investigations, Mr. Trump promised to pursue bipartisan cooperation but put the onus on Democrats to meet him halfway.
"It's a huge moment and victory for the president", Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders told reporters at the White House Tuesday night.
Overall, more voters disapproved of Trump's job performance than approved - a finding that is largely consistent with recent polling. Or the elections were all a single issue: health care, immigration, the economy - the list went on and on. And she lost. Too bad.
The Democratic majority in the lower chamber will be in a position to block Mr Trump's legislative programme.
The political and practical stakes were sky-high.
His departure could be the first of a long line of high-profile exits as Trump reshapes his team for the 2020 election, especially since the midterm vote which could dramatically change the fate of the White House in the next two years.
Some Democrats have already vowed to force the release of his tax returns.
What a Democratic-controlled House can do is set the stage for 2020, making the case that Democrats are better at foreign policy and national security than Republicans.
Specifically, with some close races still undecided, Democrats have picked up at least 29 seats in the House.
Biden was the next most popular choice with 25 percent saying he would be their preferred nominee and Sanders came in third with 18 percent. But in Nevada's Senate race, Democrats captured a GOP-held seat when Democrat Jacky Rosen triumphed over incumbent Republican Sen. That said, if Abrams wins, she will become Georgia's first Black female governor.
Ashley Young's 7/10 for Man United sparks Juventus comeback
But Ronaldo , 33, insisted there was no reason for Juve to panic after suffering their first defeat in 15 games this season. They kept Juve at arm's length in the first half and looked comfortable until Ronaldo's fantastic finish on 65 minutes.
In 2016, Clinton won 1.37 million Minnesota votes. The article also said that the USA president "probably always planned to jettison" former United States attorney general Jeff Sessions.
Overall, 6 in 10 voters said the country was headed in the wrong direction, but roughly that same number described the national economy as excellent or good. In fact, her approval rating is only about half of the president's own.
That the Democrats have not won an even larger share of seats in Congress is largely due to gerrymandering, which gives Republicans a built-in advantage in the House. And in New Jersey, Democrats re-elected embattled Sen.
Democrats' performance in the House battlefield was mixed.
The president also called out Rep. Barbara Comstock, Virginia Republican, for failing to call for White House help in her losing re-election bid. The GOP's post-2010 majority of 24 seats was more than double the amount that Democrats are expected to possess from 2019 to 2021. Rep. Conor Lamb, D-Pa., was re-elected to the House.
Two things. One is that the state-level results are really important.
Was 2018 a referendum on President Trump? Kirsten Gillibrand of New York and New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo. "So much of what the House can do is not through writing a bill that will have to be agreed to by the Senate and signed by the president". He and the first lady were to host an evening watch party for family and friends.
Trump's Republican coalition is increasingly older, whiter, more male and less likely to have a college degree.
After Tuesday's elections, a record number of women will serve in Congress come January 2019. House Speaker Sara Gideon, D-Freeport, who won re-election to her House District 48 seat with almost 80 percent of the vote, said Democrats believed they would hold 89 seats once the final tallies are in. That could climb a little higher if late-breaking votes go Democrats' way in California, something that has happened in previous elections.
The demographic divides were coloring the political landscape in different ways.
"We'll fill in the gaps on the Russian Federation investigations", he said of the Mueller probe.
Given the really bad night the GOP had in the northern part of the USA, that no longer appears to be true, which is a highly problematic development for him and his party.
Republican Kristi Noem made history on Tuesday when she was elected South Dakota's first woman governor.
