The midterms show Trump might not get re-elected in 2020

“One of the key pieces that we have learned over the last two years of watching Trump and studying Trump is there is an opposite and equal reaction across the country whenever he does something”.

On Capitol Hill, Republican Senate leader Mitch McConnell said Democrats must decide how much “harassment” they want to pursue against Trump, while suggesting there could be limited opportunities to work across the aisle. Next year they will have far more power in USA politics, and the Republicans far less.

He told the nation he would love to work with Democrats – that it might, in fact, be a good thing that they won control of the House of Representatives – but he refused to back away from any of his divisive campaign rhetoric. Republican Rep. Martha McSalley held a slim lead over Rep. Kyrsten Sinema, a Democrat.

But in Georgia, Democrat Stacey Abrams – who was hoping to become the first black female governor in the United States – refused to concede as her Republican opponent Brian Kemp took a commanding lead after a bitter campaign. “Sorry about that, Mia”.

Love is trailing her Democratic opponent Ben McAdams, but her race hasn’t yet been called.

18 percent of Democrats wanted Trump’s tax returns reviewed, with 11 percent saying that was a priority. And in New Jersey, Democrats re-elected embattled Sen.

While this was not the case, the Democrat performance in the Senate was still somewhat positive.

Trump’s polarizing impact on the country has driven unusually high interest in the election, the first major political test of his presidency and one that will provide Democrats with clues to the strategy they’ll need to challenge him in 2020. Polls have already demonstrated that many of its policy views are extremely unpopular, but talking to a pollster is a considerably different proposition than casting a vote for someone who will exercise political power.

In Florida, six House seats are in play, and there are close and crucial battles for a Senate seat and the governorship.

Midterm elections are typically hard for the party in power, but the GOP’s hold on power was further weakened by an unusually large number of retirements as well as infighting between conservatives and centrists over their allegiance to Trump.

It’s not at all clear that embracing Trump would have changed their fortunes given the mood of voters in those districts. He took to Twitter the morning after the split election outcome for the GOP to put Democrats on notice about their threats to investigate him and the administration.

U.S. President Donald Trump phoned Pelosi, who is expected to be the next speaker of the house late Tuesday evening to extend his congratulations over the Democratic victory in the House, according to Drew Hammill, who is Pelosi’s chief of staff.

History was working against the president in both the House and the Senate: The president’s party has traditionally suffered deep losses in his first midterm election, and 2002 was the only midterm election in the past three decades when the party holding the White House gained Senate seats. That could help Democrats because younger voters tend to lean their way.

Nadler’s panel would handle any effort to impeach Trump, depending on the outcome of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s federal probe into Russian meddling in the 2016 USA elections and possible Trump campaign collusion with Moscow. Those Illinois victories contributed to the Democrats winning control of the House.

Women have never held more than 84 of the 435 seats in the House. But a number of House Democratic candidates have said they won’t support her for the top role. “We call it shaking the snow globe”, Sena said. Trump and his daughter Ivanka, a senior White House adviser, both retained their stakes in the property.

Asked specifically about the future of Attorney General Jeff Sessions and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, Trump says, “I’d rather answer that at a little bit different time“.

Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib are the first Muslim women and Sharice Davids and Debra Haaland the first Native American women to be elected to Congress.

Neal’s comments came as Republican Gov. Charlie Baker, fresh off a convincing re-election win, pledged Wednesday to serve all four years of his second term, but wouldn’t say yet whether he hopes to continue in office beyond that. He said since Trump has been president, he ‘s hired two more employees for his six-person company.

Finally, in many states Republicans flagrantly cheated in addition to their gerrymandering.

Other records were also falling.
