Here’s Who Would’ve Won If the Midterms Were a Presidential Election

Democrats could derail Trump's legislative agenda for the next two years should they win control of the House.

Hours earlier, the president had hailed a "big victory" in the midterm election and tweeted that "now we can all get back to work and get things done!"

In fact, McConnell called for "bipartisanship" numerous times and even offered some advice for his Democratic counterparts who retook the House majority and have promised multiple oversight investigations of the president, including a quest for his tax returns.

Numerous issues already have been put forward by Representative Eliot Engel, the top Democrat on the Foreign Affairs Committee. But in Nevada's Senate race, Democrats captured a GOP-held seat when Democrat Jacky Rosen triumphed over incumbent Republican Sen. The party captured the chamber in Tuesday's congressional elections.

The House defeat is also a message from moderate Republicans and independents, especially women put off by Mr. Trump's rancorous style. The 2018 total even edged out the losses under George W. Bush in 2006, which was the last time the Democrats re-took the House in a midterm election.

Meanwhile, about three-quarters of nonwhite voters, with or without college degrees, voted for Democratic candidates in their districts. Here are some of the silver linings that Trump can take from Tuesday's vote.

Analysts think iron ore prices could see a short-term bump as a result of this derailment, according to the news service. The train was traveling on BHP's rail line from Newman to Port Hedland in the Pilbara region of Western Australia.

Aides set up televisions in the White House residence for Trump, first lady Melania Trump and their guests to watch election results come in, with the sets tuned to different cable news channels. She also out-raised Blum with help from outside money, which accounted for most of her campaign's funds.

"She represents the party of". For that, I don't blame her.

The ability for Democrats to make their voices heard on foreign policy may be the most potent weapon they have. Their sense of urgency helped Pressley displace an able but older Democratic incumbent in her September primary, and it has ushered into Congress a new generation of intersectional activists-among them Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez from New York, Rashida Tlaib from MI, and Ilhan Omar from Minnesota-who have been given a charge not merely to dissent against Trump but to present a governing alternative.

In the Miami area, former Clinton administration Cabinet member Donna Shalala won an open seat, while GOP Rep. Carlos Curbelo lost his bid for a third term in a nearby district.

Democrats also made inroads in deeply conservative districts that will be hard to hold in 2020 when the party is playing defense and Trump is on top of the ballot to spur GOP turnout.

Comstock lost by more than 12 points to Democrat Jennifer Wexton. Cunningham was able to secure a narrow victory by capitalizing on the GOP primary scuffle, as exhibited by the endorsements his campaign garnered from several local Republicans.

The allegations against Kavanaugh were leveled roughly a year after the start of the #MeToo movement, which has brought national attention to sexual harassment and assault. Almost a third of Cunningham's contributions came from outside SC.

Ideas reached him in his office the day after the midterms. Not a single Republican vote would be needed. The district, covering Oklahoma City and its suburbs, has reliably elected Republicans since 1975.

"The president's actions have plunged the country into peril", the Democrats added.

Many of these races could still change hands. Booker, Sen. Harris, former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

The press conference, which initially focused on simple political topics, quickly descended into chaos after Trump was asked about his politics and the controversial issue of Russian Federation meddling in the US's 2016 presidential election (the same election that put Trump in the White Hosue). If they fail to do so, Trump will maintain control of the narrative in what should be an accountability moment for his presidency and a policy-shift moment for the country.

If President Trump were a disciplined political actor who thought strategically about his party's electoral future instead of a reactive and impulsive vulgarian whose insecurities and prejudices just so happen to coincide and resonate with the insecurities and prejudices of a large swath of Republican voters, he could do far more than merely use Democratic gains in the House as an opportunity to keep his base whipped into a froth of partisan fury over the next two years.

CNN have since defended the reporter and praised others for standing up for themselves during the tense exchange. I also love the world, and I don't mind helping the world, but we have to straighten out our country first.

Long before all the polls closed Tuesday night, Democratic and Republican operatives alike had hatched their own competing - and presumably self-serving - stories about what was unfolding, and why.
