United States elects record number of women to House

Pa. N.J. congressional election results Democrats gain four seats in Philly region

Consequently, that the Republicans lost the House to the Democrats could actually mean that Trump's final two years of term have just become severely limited.

Almost 40 percent of voters cast their ballots to express opposition to the president, according to AP VoteCast, a national survey of the electorate, while about 25 percent said they voted to express support for Trump.

Democrats won control of the House in Tuesday's elections, but Republicans retained a majority in the Senate.

"I do think they will definitely try to impeach nearly immediately", said Meadows, even though Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and other Democratic leaders have downplayed that issue during the campaign. But if the Democrats are likely to scrap with each other, they will be united in opposition to the president and his administration.

With the Democrats in the majority they will have the power to launch investigations and subpoena records, including possibly Trump's tax filings and private business dealings.

The question - after Democrats and the country did what they had to do on Tuesday night by taking control the House (and, for the first time in almost two years, putting a real check on President Donald Trump's ranting, raving, revolting rampage through our politics and our constitutional system) - is how and whether the self-described master of the "art of the deal" will be able to navigate the new political world into which he has been dropped.

Trump closed out his midterm election rallies with one in Missouri that featured conservative stars, Republican hopefuls, favorite Democratic targets and a little drama. "Those that did not, say goodbye!"

Trump showed he is mindful House Democrats likely will use their new powers to look into his presidency.

Press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders announced on Twitter that Trump will take questions from reporters at the White House at 11:30 a.m. EST. It also will give him a chance to explain how he will work with Democrats.

"This was a a base election on both sides, and the president is a very big motivator", said Susie Wiles, the senior campaign adviser for the DeSantis campaign.

Financial markets often favor Washington gridlock because it preserves the status quo and reduces uncertainty, even though many in the market this time around had been hoping for a continuation of the Republican agenda. What he would not favor, though, would be investigations or sanctions that would further damage the well-connected Russian oligarchs believed to have helped fund the US election meddling efforts.

Anticipating the possibility of keeping the Senate but losing the House, aides in recent days had laid out the political reality to Trump, who could face an onslaught of Democratic-run investigations. "As for the market impact, a split Congress has historically been bullish for equities and we expect to see the same pattern again", said Torsten Slok, Chief International Economist of Deutsche Bank.

In two other tight Congressional races in Illinois, Republicans Mike Bost and Rodney Davis narrowly held onto their seats in two downstate districts. "It's very hard to rule out the idea that foreign policy decisions are not being kept separate from business interests".

The Democratic majority in the lower chamber will be in a position to block Mr Trump's legislative programme.

Now that Democrats have won control of the U.S. House of Representatives, they will be able to force administration officials to testify and provide documents. Doug Jones' seat. Jones, who won a special election a year ago against an extremely flawed GOP candidate, will have to choose whether to seek a full term in a state Trump carried with 62 percent of the vote in 2016. The result is that there will be several members of the new Democratic majority running for re-election in traditionally Republican areas that Trump won by double digits in 2016.

The gubernatorial race in Georgia, where Democrat Stacey Abrams was seeking to become the first black woman to be elected governor of a USA state, remained too close to call early on Wednesday.

Schiff said he also he plans to reopen parts of the Intelligence panel's Russia-election interference inquiry that Democrats say was prematurely closed by Republicans.

Wall Street was set for a modestly firmer open on Wednesday and global stocks rose after the election results.
