The biggest threat to Trump winning a second term

When do the midterm elections 2018 results expected to come out?

Republicans are expected to retain their slight majority in the U.S. Senate, now at two seats, which would let them retain the power to approve U.S. Supreme Court and other judicial nominations on straight party-line votes.

In the first national election since Trump took the White House, Democrats are expected to gain control of the House but not the Senate.

Riding a powerful "blue wave" of backlash to President Donald Trump, Democrats were projected on Tuesday night to take control of the House of Representatives in the midterm elections.

Two issues more than any others were on voters' minds. Two-thirds of voters said that they decided how to vote before the last month of the election.

They ended up reversing abruptly, and Donald Trump was the victor.

The political and practical stakes were sky-high.

It will also determine whether Senate Democrats can launch investigations into controversies that have surrounded Trump while he has been in office and before he was elected, including allegations surrounding obstruction of justice, Trump's finances and potential Russian collusion. But if Republicans do better than expected, Trump will be able to claim vindication for his campaign strategy and his unconventional approach to the presidency.

Some Democrats have already vowed to force the release of his tax returns. There, the ABC chart showed the GOP with a surprising 40 percent chance of maintaining control.

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

For Democrats, the road to the majority ran through the two dozen suburban districts Clinton won and through swaths of Trump country in the Rust Belt and heartland where voters backed the president two years ago.

He bet big on a xenophobic closing message, warning of an immigrant "invasion" that promised to spread violent crime and drugs across the nation.

"I feel confident we will win", House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi said as the polls opened.

Tuesday night's results mark a comeback for the Democratic Party, which last held control of the House in 2010.

Democratic Senators Joe Manchin and Bob Menendez held on after tough campaigns in West Virginia and New Jersey respectively, but it was cold comfort.

Democrats did succeed in holding on to Sen.

In gubernatorial races, Republican Kris Kobach, a Trump ally, was beaten by a Democrat in Kansas.

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

Democrats failed to defeat a vulnerable incumbent in Kentucky, where Republican Rep. Andy Barr won over former Marine fighter pilot Amy McGrath.

The loss of the House spells the end of a political era for Republicans who rode into town on a Tea Party wave whipped up by fury over Obamacare and huge government spending in the wake of the Great Recession.

The election saw all 435 seats in the House of Representatives and 35 of 100 in the Senate up for grabs, as well as 36 governorships, many of those state races toss-ups according to the polls. Bernie Sanders of Vermont, Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts, Sherrod Brown of Ohio, Sen. But Pelosi brushed off such comparisons Tuesday, arguing that Clinton won the popular vote, and was handicapped by the Electoral College, which won't be a factor in House races.

The verdicts in the House and Senate were based on incomplete results as vote counting continued across the country and some states were still voting in a congressional election cast as an unofficial referendum on Trump.

Trump's Republican coalition is increasingly older, whiter, more male and less likely to have a college degree. Democrats are relying more upon women, people of color, young people and college graduates.

Democrats also ran the most diverse slate of candidates for the House in USA history.

The Democrats benefited from extraordinary voter enthusiasm, robust fundraising and unusually fresh candidates.

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

Democrats and their independent colleagues have to defend 27 seats, including in states that went heavily for Trump in the presidential election.

And in North Dakota, Democratic Senator Heidi Heitkamp was ousted by her Republican challenger.

GOP Whip Steve Scalise said the president's rallies were building momentum, and with the economy a selling point, he predicted his party would retain a slim majority. And even though Harvey says none of the candidates particularly excite her, she is planning on voting for all the democratic nominees on the ballot.
