Defiant Trump blames media, fellow Republicans for House losses

"It's very inappropriate. We should get along and get deals done".

The result confirms a historical trend for the party that is not in the White House to make gains in the mid-terms.

"It broke something in me", McMorrow told reporters Wednesday, on a conference call hosted by Emerge America.

ASSOCIATED PRESS The nation's federal courts are going to look a lot different by the time these two are done with them. "It was a great victory". Women were 21 points more likely to vote for Democrats than Republicans in House races - 60 percent voted for Democrats, to 38 percent who voted for Republicans.

Over the last two years there was always this sense that while the president's thunderous championing of white nationalism and anti-immigrant rhetoric and policies was hurting him in the heavily Mexican-American parts of the southwestern USA, it was the key to unlock the Rustbelt and Midwest - the part of the country seen as the one which gave him the presidency. That's one reason why it's so hard to settle on a single narrative about what happened.

With a Democratic majority in the House and free trade-supporting Republicans seemingly a minority in their own party, Mr Trump could have more room to take on Beijing on a number of fronts.

Rep. Elijah Cummings, the Maryland Democrat poised to take charge of the House Oversight Committee, said in a statement to The Associated Press that he intends to use the panel as "a check on the executive branch - not merely for potential criminal violations, but for much broader concerns, such as conflicts of interest, emoluments violations and waste, fraud and abuse".

In the closing week of campaigning, Trump turned away from the House where numerous most competitive races ran through suburbs, focusing his attention on Senate and gubernatorial races in states where he is relatively popular.

Tuesday's contest saw several historic firsts in the Democratic camp: in Kansas Sharice Davids - an attorney and former mixed martial arts fighter - became the first Native American woman elected to Congress.

Democrats will now be able to block legislation and light a fire under Trump's feet with investigations of his opaque finances and Russian interference in the 2016 election. The estimated 114 million people who turned out to vote was within shouting distance of the 137 million who voted in 2016. Trump only added 2,000 to Mitt Romney's 2012 total, hardly much motion at all. But that was enough for Trump to come closer than any Republican since Ronald Reagan to winning the state. However, he did it by standing still as Clinton underperformed. Clinton dropped nearly 300,000 votes from Obama's 2012 performance in MI, which produced 131,000 fewer votes between the two major-party candidates than in the previous cycle.

Even as U.S. president Donald Trump celebrated Republican gains in the Senate in the aftermath of 2018 midterm election and threatened Democrats who won back control of the House (and with it the power to investigate the president's personal and professional conduct), many dailies and newspapers agreed: While the Democrats taking back one lever of power spelled some trouble for Trump, it was hardly a total victory.

Instead the implications for Democrats - as with the election results themselves - are a bit more nuanced.

Exit polls also show the primary issues for voters were health care at 41 percent, immigration following at 23 percent and the economy at 21 percent.

That raises big questions about any path to Electoral College victory in 2020. "His numbers went up and ours went down, and we under-performed in the next election". While 44% of voters approve of Mr. Trump's policies, some 20% like his policies but dislike him personally. That 20% is five times the percentage who disliked George W. Bush but liked his policies when he lost the House in 2006, and 10 times the share that disliked Barack Obama in 2013. Some two-thirds of voters on Tuesday expressed satisfaction with the economy, and these are people he'd win if he didn't alienate them with his narcissism and petulance.

He held rallies, and then the candidates he held rallies for won. Instead he has played constantly to his base who are already loyal. LePage governed largely by mobilizing the House minority Republican caucus to sustain a record number of 642 vetoes - more than all other ME governors combined going back to 1917 and 80 times as many as his predecessor, Baldacci. Back in October, Nadler, who is set to become chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, promised to re-investigate Brett Kavanaugh if the Dems took the House.
