Republicans Will Hold Majority In Senate After Democrats Take Back The House

VIDEO Thousands of torches were lit at the Tower of London to mark the centenary of the end of World War I

Mr Trump is not up for re-election until 2020, but Tuesday's vote was seen as a referendum on a polarising president.

And Florida has a competitive US Senate election, where Democratic incumbent Bill Nelson has led Republican Governor Rick Scott by a few points.

In Indiana, Republican Mike Braun knocked off Democratic Sen.

Most Democratic candidates in tight races stayed away from harsh criticism of Trump during the campaign's final stretch, focusing instead on bread-and-butter issues like keeping down health care costs, maintaining insurance protections for people with pre-existing medical conditions and safeguarding the Social Security retirement and Medicare health care programs for senior citizens.

But in some other toss-up races, the GOP managed to hold on.

It was the first national election in the United States since the 2016 race in which Russian Federation interfered, according to US intelligence agencies, with a campaign of hacking and propaganda to sow discord, harm the Democratic presidential candidate and boost Trump's chances.

Sen. Bob Menendez of New Jersey beat Republican challenger Bob Hugin to win a third term.

The former president campaigned in recent days in Florida, Georgia, Indiana and IL for a slate of Democrats running in key Senate and gubernatorial races.

They need to pick up two dozen seats to claim the House majority.

All 435 seats in the House of Representatives were at stake Tuesday, plus 35 of the 100 U.S. Senate seats and 36 of the 50 state governorships.

"Under the expectation that Republican voters typically are more likely to turn out, can Democrats energize people who identify with the Democratic Party to turn out and vote for their candidates?" he asked.

Democrats are most optimistic about the House, a sprawling battlefield set largely in America's suburbs where more educated and affluent voters in both parties have soured on Trump's turbulent presidency, despite the strength of the national economy. The President has energised a staggering number of Americans at packed arenas and in overflow crowds at rallies across the country. The last polls were to close seven hours later in Alaska, with results trickling in through the evening. About 15 percent said that this was the first time they'd voted in a midterm, according to CNN, compared to about 10 percent who said they were first-time voters in the 2016 election. Much of that has gone to boost turnout among younger voters, although he has produced a nationwide advertising campaign calling for Trump's impeachment. Like Mr. Trump, Mr. These would be considered solid Republican districts in most years, but Democrats targeted them in an effort to win the House. "With President Trump more about the tone and the rhetoric, rather than his tax cuts, for example, which have clearly helped the economy". Meanwhile, Democrats are fighting hard to take seats that have been held by Republicans in Arizona, Nevada, Texas, and Tennessee. "Although the exact size of the Democratic majority is not yet clear, Democrats will soon have to decide whether to restore Nancy Pelosi to her old job as Speaker of the House", adds the forecast.

As the results begin to come in later in the day, Wolf said he's going to be closely watching the gubernatorial races.

The outcome will determine how well the dominant party works with Gov. Roy Cooper as both sides push for often conflicting goals, such as health-care access and education funding for the Democrats, tax relief and deregulation for Republicans.

"In this cycle, it seemed as if there was a disproportionately negative reaction among highly educated voters to Trump", he said.

A majority of the 113,000 voters surveyed said the country is headed in the wrong direction. A CBS News exit poll offers some clues. "I just want to keep everything moving, because I'm loving it".

"I do think this will be a late night because I don't think this will be decided until the last jurisdiction comes in", she said. "We will finally give New Yorkers the progressive leadership they have been demanding", she tweeted. His campaign team created an advertisement focused on the caravan that was so racially charged that major TV networks pulled it.

Republicans have privately encouraged the president to back off, to no avail. Yet it may be effective in largely rural states where he remains popular and where numerous closest Senate races are playing out.

Democrats boasted record diversity on ballots.
