United States midterm elections results as they come in

  • The US House of Representatives

Republicans now hold a 51-49 edge in Senate seats and are a strong favourite to retain control of the legislative body. That will give Trump a partial claim of victory and allow him to continue his drive to reshape the federal courts.

The Democrats are favoured by election forecasters to pick up the 23 seats they need to gain a majority in the House, but opinion polls show they have slimmer hopes of picking up the two seats they need to gain control of the Senate. It would be the first time the party has controlled the House since 2010.

Besides stymieing the Trump agenda, a Democratic victory in the House could allow Democrats to launch multiple committee investigations of the Trump administration and possibly even impeachment proceedings.

In the hotly contested 2016 election, Trump proclaimed that he would ban Muslims from being granted admission to the United States as president.

There was another blow for Democratic morale as Texas Sen.

In the leadup to the election, Republicans privately expressed confidence in their narrow Senate majority but feared the House could slip away.

In Texas, Sen Ted Cruz staved off a tough challenge from Democrat Beto O'Rourke, whose record-smashing fundraising and celebrity have set off buzz he could be a credible 2020 White House contender.

Sabato and Kondik also predicted that Republicans would add one seat to their Senate majority.

There are also 39 state and territories governorships up for election in 2018.

Some Georgia voters saw lines of hundreds of people waiting to cast ballots in an election that will determine control of both houses of Congress and three dozen governors' seats.

Voters "rejected the politics of hate, the politics of division and the politics of ideology", Spanberger told supporters Tuesday night.

Democrat Amy McGrath, a former Marine Corps fighter pilot, is running neck-and-neck against Republican Andy Barr in a House race in Kentucky, a state Trump won by 30 points. But the closeness of the toss-up races - Republican Sen.

Like Monday Night Football, election night in America has become a made-for-television event.

"This was a hard campaign", Curbelo told reporters in Miami.

Two of its engines appeared to be attached but were heavily damaged, while two other engines were sheared off completely. She said the five crew on board Flight KKE 4854 have been taken to hospital with what she believed to be minor injuries.

In south Florida, former Health and Human Services Secretary Donna Shalala defeated Republican Maria Elvira Salazar.

Rep. Mia Love, who was the sole black Republican woman in Congress, was trailing in Utah to Democrat Ben McAdams. Republicans had pledged that, if returned to power in the House, they would get to work on a new 10 percent tax cut for the middle class Trump spoke of in the closing days of the campaign. Among those expected: Vice President Mike Pence and former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, an informal adviser to the president.

American voters poured out across their bitterly divided country Tuesday to deliver judgment on Donald Trump in midterm polls where opposition Democrats hope to seize at least partial control of Congress.

Trump is trying to defy historic omens that suggest that commanders in chief often get a rebuke from voters in the midterm election of their first term.

According to CNN, exit polling showed that two thirds of voters considered the election to be about Trump, whose approval rating remains below 50 per cent.

Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin was re-elected in West Virginia, which Trump captured by 42 percentage points.

According to Michael McDonald of the US Elections Project, 38.4 million Americans cast their ballots early compared with 27.4 million in the 2014 midterm election. That could help Democrats because younger voters tend to lean their way.

Trump spent the day at the White House, tweeting, making calls, monitoring the races and meeting with his political team.

Trump himself noted the energy as he wrapped up a punishing schedule of rallies around the country that were meant to boost Republican candidates - and his own brand heading towards reelection in 2020. Party stalwarts and some independents have been roused by revulsion toward Trump's anti-immigration rhetoric and policies and his efforts to dismantle health care protections enacted under President Obama, and by the #MeToo movement's fury over sexual harassment. I really think it's more than just about a specific issue.

A majority of the 113,000 voters surveyed said the country is headed in the wrong direction. Democratic Senate incumbents were up for re-election, for example, in North Dakota, Indiana, and Missouri - states Trump carried by nearly 25 percentage points on average two years ago.

The president's strategy of emphasizing divisive issues such as immigration appeared to backfire on Republican candidates in suburban swing districts that determined control of the House.

The Southwest states feature a number of key races: at least two Senate races are key to the GOP's chances of either holding on to the Senate or increasing their lead.

A separate storm front in central Tennessee overnight killed one person, injured two others and also left thousands without power. According to data compiled by The Associated Press, 237 women ran for the House as major-party candidates this year.
