Democrats’ Pickup Chances Rise In More House Races, Analyst Says

The results allowed both parties to claim partial victory, but highlighted an extraordinary realignment of US voters by race, sex and education.

Critics, including the Democrats, accused Trump of employing racist and xenophobic rhetoric that incited violence, a charge he and many of his fellow Republicans rejected.

She also rejected the idea that a "blue wave" was happening. If Deb Haaland won her congressional race in New Mexico, she would become the first Native American woman elected to Congress.

Trump blamed the political vitriol on election season. But more significantly, polls suggest that Trump will lose control of the House of Representatives in today's vote.

Mr Manchin was the only member of his party to vote to confirm Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, whose nomination narrowly survived sexual assault claims.

Some Democrats have already vowed to force the release of his tax returns.

The GOP Senate victory was magnified because Democrats stood a solid chance of wresting control of the House from Republicans.

Ted Cruz fends off Beto O'Rourke in Texas Senate race
The waning moments of the campaign provided Democrats with hope - a Change Research poll had the candidates tied at 49 percent. Before getting to the Cruz segment of the video, Triumph starts off gently poking fun at Beto O'Rourke and his supporters.

US President Donald Trump has taken credit for the stock market's gains during his almost two years in the White House, and those claims are reasonable given the impact of tax cuts and pro-business policies on investor sentiment.

A loss of the House will also trigger significant second guessing of the President's tactics, given that he chose not to make the booming economy his primary midterm argument, instead turning to a searing indictment of Democrats focusing on immigration and laden with racial language.

Trump was watching the results alongside friends and family at the White House, his spokeswoman said. One Clinton staffer likened it, in Politico's paraphrase, to "getting dental work without anesthesia", while a Bush official called it "one of the most demoralizing times of his career". Basically, what happened was the same slight error - the marginal underrepresentation of white working class voters favouring Trump - was replicated in a number of key districts located in states with large numbers of electoral college votes.

The news was a sigh of relief for progressives and a number of so-called never-Trump conservatives, including such well-known figures as Steve Schmidt and Max Boot, who urged voters to cast their ballots for Democrats to curb Democratic excesses.

He amplified that message with an advertisement linking Democrats and immigrants to violent crime, which aired on NBC on Sunday night.

The projections are largely in line with polling ahead of election day on Tuesday (Wednesday NZT), which predicted a split Congress, and would likely be a check on the president's agenda.

The president's current job approval, set at 40 percent by Gallup, was the lowest at this point of any first-term president in the modern era.

A grateful Indian attack obliged and India scripted a crushing nine-wicket victory in the fifth One-Day International on Thursday. Kohli was the man-of-the-series for his 453 runs in five matches including three centuries and a highest score of 157 not out.

Americans voted for all 435 seats in the House, and female candidates stole the spotlight in an election cycle that had been billed as the Year of the Woman.

With divided leadership in Congress and a president who has taken an expansive view of executive power, Washington could be in store for even deeper political polarization and legislative gridlock.

Yet Trump's party will maintain Senate control for the next two years, at least.

Democrats also failed to capitalize on potential gains in Texas, where Sen.

Republicans entered Tuesday with strong prospects of keeping their Senate majority but the victory by GOP challenger Mike Braun over Sen.

According to analysts at Nomura, the most likely outcome in today's USA midterm elections remains that Democrats will take control of the House and Republicans will retain control of the Senate. The GOP's grip on high-profile governorships in Georgia and Wisconsin were at risk as well.

Florida is living up to its history as a cliffhanger state, with Democratic Sen. What was not normal was that Menendez had been indicted on corruption charges and escaped with hung jury.
