Midterms serve as practice run for Trump's 2020 re-election campaign

US: Democrats take the House, but there was no landslide – Nordea Markets

With the loss of the Republican majority in the House, President Donald Trump is facing the prospect of endless House investigations, stymied policy efforts and fresh questions about the resilience of his unorthodox political coalition.

The expectations we carry into elections always make it hard to objectively assess their outcome. Given all that, it seems highly unlikely that the Democrats will be serious about legislation, especially since the Republicans control the Senate. 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.

Kennedy, host of "Kennedy" on Fox Business Network, said President Trump endorsed Rep. Nancy Pelosi for House Speaker because she's the "perfect foil for him". But White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders minimized the magnitude of Democratic gains.

Overall, more voters disapproved of Trump's job performance than approved - a finding that is largely consistent with recent polling.

Still, Pelosi said Democrats weren't elected to be "a rubber stamp" for Trump.

After all the votes are counted, Democrats will emerge from the first midterm election of Donald Trump's presidency with their narrowest majority in the House of Representative since 1945.

They're personally wounded and offended by this man.

Some Democrats have already vowed to force the release of his tax returns. President Trump won because he now has a Senate that can quickly confirm his judicial and cabinet nominees. The GOP's grip on high-profile governorships in Florida, Georgia and Wisconsin were at risk as well. She won the general election after running unopposed. Better to have all the material that you would use for impeachment and then let the voters decide in 2020.

He bet big on a xenophobic closing message, warning of an immigrant "invasion" that promised to spread violent crime and drugs across the nation. Others include, former Vice President Joe Biden, Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren, California Senator Kamala Harris, and New Jersey Senator Cory Booker. That margin is very similar to the Republican advantage in 2010, which was seen as a huge wave election. "Even if Senate Republicans and House Democrats mutually agree to provide the spending increases the other wants, there will be no guarantee that Trump will go along or that he will sign a bill without demanding his own pound of appropriations flesh". And in New Jersey, Democrats re-elected embattled Sen. Jeff Flake, who has often been critical of Trump and isn't seeking re-election.

Democrats' performance in the House battlefield was mixed.

And there was the usual anti-Republican liberal media wave, which tried to prop up Democrats. That changed on Tuesday, when these two women defeated Republican incumbents. In Virginia's 10th District in the D.C. suburbs, Democrats ran ads against ousted in GOP Rep.

What does Tuesday's outcome mean for the 2020 presidential election? Elizabeth Warren (MA), Cory Booker (NJ), Kamala Harris (CA), and Bernie Sanders (VT). Kirsten Gillibrand of New York and New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo. We have the Senate, the Supreme Court and the White House. He and the first lady were to host an evening watch party for family and friends. They ask voters how they voted, what attitudes and issues were most important in compelling them to vote and if they affiliate themselves with a given party, along with their age, gender, race and highest level of education, according to the American Association for Public Opinion Research.

Trump's Republican coalition is increasingly older, whiter, more male and less likely to have a college degree.

The Democrats said they also want the Justice Department to protect the integrity of Mueller's investigation and to preserve relevant documents.

The demographic divides were coloring the political landscape in different ways.

The press conference, which initially focused on simple political topics, quickly descended into chaos after Trump was asked about his politics and the controversial issue of Russian Federation meddling in the US's 2016 presidential election (the same election that put Trump in the White Hosue).

"To deal w harassment & filth spewed at GOP [members of Congress] in tough seats every day for 2 yrs, bc of POTUS; to bite ur lip more times you'd care to; to disagree & separate from POTUS on principle & civility in ur campaign; to lose bc of POTUS & have him piss on u".

Out of curiosity, TIME gamed out what a presidential election would have looked like in 2018 if one were to replace votes for House candidates with votes for a presidential candidate of the same party.

Democrats boasted record diversity on ballots.

At 29, Ocasio-Cortez is the youngest woman ever elected to Congress.
