Democrats win control of House as Republicans grow Senate majority

  • Publicado em 7 Nov 2018
  • Democrats are projected to flip more than two dozen Republican-held House seats in the midterm elections, but Republicans were able to strengthen their hold on the Senate. CBSN political contributor Caitlin Huey-Burns explains how big of a factor President Trump was in the midterms and what a divided Congress means for the U.S. government.

    Blue wave? What the one that saw the incumbents party actually gain a few seats in the senate which has only happened 3 times before the history of our nation in a presidents first midterm, do much better than expected in the governors races, retain the vast majority of state legislators, and the most prominent so called rising starts in Texas, Georgia, and Florida all losing? Compared to 2016 there was only about 6 million democrats that didn't vote while there was more than 13 million republicans that didn't vote that's the only reason the House flipped by a slim margin in terms of % in the individual races. In 2016 the GOP actually won the "popular vote" in the House. Nancy Pelosi as speaker will greatly increase the chance Trump will win in 2020.

      The GOP didn't vote as much as the Dems did because they had no reason to just as the dem base had no reason to go out in vote in 2010 which was actually a wave election. Trump like Obama was not on the ballot and both of their bases saw no reason to come out as much due to that. If your not gaining as many seats compared to the other party and actually suffering net losses in the senate that's not a wave or anything to be excited about. Pelosi has negatives more than double the amount Trump ever has had she will be the face of obstruction and the face of a party that is already tearing each other apart with the abolish ICE and free everything crowd like Cortez and those like herself that actually want to govern and leave their marks in history like Pelosi.

    Only in Trump's America do both houses move in opposite directions during a midterm election. While Democrats are celebrating retaking the House, Republicans are celebrating the gains they made in the Senate.

      The votes in florida could give republicans control of house. I believe dems committed fraud to get hpuse as well. Why would anyone vote for them after the way they behaved at brett kavanaugh's hearing?

    • Hamguy Bacon

      that's because the dems committed voters fraud to get the house.

    Trump and I won. Obama lost 60 seats and the Senate. Clinton lost badly too. Reagan even lost the house. I don't want to hear it.

      J Batson you do know obama lost the senate 6 years into his presidency right? Also the is the biggest wave for democrats since 1970. Dems could have won more seats if the GOP didnt gerrymander. For example in ohio dems won 46% of the vote and got 25% of the seats.

    One would think with this so called great economy, Trump's approval ratings would be higher and his party would have kept the House. Let's not forget, Pennsylvania, Michigan and Wisconsin, three states that voted for Trump in 2016, turned bright BLUE again !

      ​+J Batson With a so called strong economy, Trump hasn't even come close to a 50% approval rating. One would think to use their head and understand why. Could it be that prices have risen more than wages ?

      +dragon63730 Ignorant beyond belief ! Republicans are owned by billionaires and multi national corporations. The Citizens United ruling by 5 corrupt conservatives in the supreme court opened the floodgates for billionaires and corporations to buy our elections. Your party has been monopolized by their money. The GOP is like a revolving door of prostitutes who only care about special interest money.

      People who are not rich and who vote for the party that only represents the ultra rich, is the definition of sheep.
