The biggest threat to Trump winning a second term

When do the midterm elections 2018 results expected to come out?

If Democrats manage to win the Senate, it would be a major setback for Republicans and a significant victory for a party that has been locked out of power in Washington since Trump won the White House.

In midterm elections two years after he won the White House, Trump and his fellow Republicans expanded their majority in the US Senate following a divisive campaign marked by fierce clashes over race, immigration and other cultural issues.

Republicans do not have to defend as many vulnerable incumbents as Democrats in the midterms.

If they do win control of the House, Democrats will try to harden USA policy toward Saudi Arabia, Russia and North Korea, while maintaining the status quo on hot-button areas like China and Iran.

The Senate result, combined with what appears to be the GOP's loss of the House majority, means that Congress is unlikely to pass much major legislation in the next two years.

Speaking to Fox News earlier in the evening, White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said Democrats shouldn't "waste time" with an investigation.

US intelligence agencies have concluded the Russian government meddled in the 2016 election with social media posts meant to spread misinformation and sow discord, an accusation denied by Moscow.

Trump can speak to the American people when he is up for re-election and explain how he is the only one that can improve their lives because the Democrats just want to play political games. Democrat Mikie Sherrill, a former Navy pilot and federal prosecutor, was favored for a suburban Newark seat that became open after the sudden retirement of the powerful chairman of the Appropriations Committee.

But the rosiest expectations of some Democrats - that they could create a "blue wave" even when playing defence on the Senate map - proved unfounded. Political gridlock between the White House and Congress could hinder Trump's pro-business agenda and raise concerns about US political instability, but investors may have already priced this in.

It also will test Trump's ability to compromise, something he has shown little interest in over the last two years with Republicans controlling both chambers of Congress. Left-leaning OH "populist" Democrat Sherrod Brown, thought initially to be vulnerable in a state that Trump carried by eight points, was quickly called the victor over Republican congressman and Trump buddy Jim Renacci soon after the polls closed.

"This is not just an anti-Trump election".

Among disapprovers, 90 percent voted for the Democratic House candidate.

The turning point was when Republican businessman Mike Braun ousted incumbent Joe Donnelly, a moderate Democrat in Indiana.


Some of the biggest Democratic stars of the campaign season were struggling.

As for Republicans retaining control of the Senate, she called it "a huge moment and victory for the president".

According to almost all pollsters, the Democrats have a good chance of winning the House, while the Republicans are likely to retain the Senate.

Democrats did succeed in holding on to Sen.

All 435 seats in the House of Representatives, 35 seats in the 100-member Senate and 36 governorships were up for grabs.

"We didn't agonize, we organized", she said. Stay with us for further updates. About 40 million early votes were likely to be cast, said Michael McDonald, a professor at the University of Florida who tracks the figures.

Election Day saw some blatant attempts to lessen turnout with disinformation on social media, and there were glitches nationwide that could slow the vote count.

A simple House majority would be enough to impeach Trump if evidence surfaces that he obstructed justice or that his 2016 campaign colluded with Russian Federation.

In the last two decades there have only three election cycles where one party picked up 24 or more seats.

The campaign unfolded against a backdrop of nasty rhetoric and angry debates on immigration, health care and the role of Congress in overseeing the president.

Trump declared "the Republican agenda is the American dream" and at his final event, in Cape Girardeau, Missouri, he called on supporters to seize their "righteous destiny as Americans".

The party of a first-term president tends to lose congressional seats in off-year elections.
