Democrats rode a wave of dissatisfaction with President Donald Trump to win control of the U.S. House of Representatives on Tuesday, Fox News and NBC News projected, giving Democrats the opportunity to block Trump's agenda and open his administration to intense scrutiny.
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.
If Democrats capture the House, they could launch congressional investigations into Trump's administration, including his tax returns, possible business conflicts of interest and the nature of his 2016 campaign's ties to Russian Federation.
At every rally, Trump has vowed to his supporters that they will "win, win, win". Orrin Hatch. Virginia Democrat Tim Kaine, his party's defeated 2016 vice presidential candidate, won re-election to the Senate. This is one of the districts redrawn, not by the legislature, but by an expert brought in by the courts during a long-running gerrymandering lawsuit brought against the Republican majority.
Most top House races are set in America's suburbs where more educated and affluent voters in both parties have soured on Trump's presidency, despite the strength of the national economy. Moscow denies meddling and Trump denies any collusion.
Wrapping up the campaign in recent days, Trump repeatedly raised fears about immigrants, issuing harsh warnings about a caravan of Central American migrants that is moving slowly through Mexico toward the US border.
Main issues for voters were health care, immigration and the economy, according to polls, though Trump, who barnstormed across the country spurring fear Central American immigrants moving north toward the U.S. -Mexico border, was also on the minds of many voters. It is also possible that there has been another minor polling error replicated across key districts that will swing the result (although this is not as likely in the absence of the electoral college).
The Republicans have long claimed that they are the party of the military.
The election results are a victory for Mr. Trump, who will see his party retain control of one chamber of Congress.

He's a military veteran who prides himself on not being a career politician. Republicans entered the night in control of 33 governor's mansions, compared to 16 for the Democrats.
For a President who clearly knows that his aggressive approach in the final days on the trail pushed back the opposition's highest hopes of taking the Senate too, Trump's remarks oddly sounds less like a survivor and more like a Vegas act ending his show.
That would give the Senate the role of blocking House-passed Democratic initiatives on everything from health care to the potential repeal of tax cuts on the wealthy that the GOP enacted previous year.
Some of the biggest Democratic stars of the campaign lost. Republican Brian Kemp, also secretary of state in Georgia, is running the election as well as running against Democrat Stacey Abrams. There are 35 seats up for election this year, and 26 are held by Democrats, meaning Democrats have a lot to defend.
Bernie Sanders and Massachusetts Democrat Elizabeth Warren were easily re-elected, the first of a batch of potential 2020 Democratic presidential hopefuls expected to win fresh Senate terms. His work has also appeared in Salon, Raw Story, Truthdig, National Memo, Philadelphia Weekly, Democratic Underground, L.A. Weekly, MintPress News and many other publications.
