Unless House Republicans can pressure enough moderate Democrats to vote with them, pro-life policy gains will again be limited to whatever changes to existing federal rules and regulations can be done by executive orders or directives to federal agencies.

Former vice president Joe Biden, often touted as a possible Democratic candidate to take on Trump in 2020, said he'd have been "dumbfounded" not to win the House.

Control of the House will let Democrats put Trump's administration under more intense scrutiny, likely making Wall Street nervous. The new House would come into being next January.

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

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, in line to become speaker, said while there is common ground on infrastructure and cutting the cost of prescription drugs, the investigations will commence.

Pelosi was in a celebratory mood Tuesday evening, declaring that "tomorrow will be a new day in America". Democrats had to defend 10 Senate seats in states Trump had carried.

The Democrats' ability to prevent Trump from passing new laws may push him to focus more on resolving USA disputes with China, other investors said.

In the Spokane area's 6th District, a Republican Senate candidate took a convincing lead and two GOP House hopefuls were edging out their Democratic counterparts. Women and people of colour made up almost 60% of Democratic House candidates. The elections also resulted in Rashida Tlaib becoming the first Muslim woman elected to the House of Representatives along with Somali-American Ilhan Omar. "We need to keep the Senate Republican to support the agenda of Donald Trump".

Nadler could become chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, and the New York Times teased that Nadler "could bring the president serious pain and potentially oversee his impeachment". And the Democratic Party lost a net total of 13 governorships and 816 state legislative seats during Obama's time in office, the most of any president since Eisenhower, according to a report from the National Conference of State Legislatures.

If they do indeed gain significant majorities, Democrats have talked about a broad health-care expansion, new environmental legislation and possibly a tax on capital gains. "We believe that the economy should work for everyone, not just those at the top", Perez said.

Still, Trump will also have to answer for a scorched earth campaign on immigration in the final days that might have helped tip the House to Democrats, even if he can argue that his magnetism among his followers' candidates, such as Rep. Ron DeSantis, who won the Florida gubernatorial race, according to a CNN projection, Marsha Blackburn who will capture the Tennessee Senate race and Mike Braun, who defeated the incumbent Democratic Sen. But the majority said he was a factor - with about one-third of them saying their vote was to support Trump and another one-third saying they voted to express opposition to the president.

With a House majority, Democrats will have the power to investigate Trump's tax returns, possible business conflicts of interest and allegations involving his 2016 campaign's links to Russian Federation. Thirty-five of the 100 Senate seats went to polls.

"Sanders spoke to reporters at the White House Tuesday night, as election returns were still coming in. The President has energized a staggering number of Americans at packed arenas and in overflow crowds at rallies across the country", she said.

To stem Republican losses, Trump sprinted through mostly white regions of the country, interjecting dark and foreboding warnings about what Democratic power would mean for the nation.

"In this election, they sought to energise groups that Clinton did not: young voters, Latinos, African Americans and infrequent voters", the daily said.

The Democrats also won some of the high-profile governor's race including Kansas, Illinois, Michigan and Minnesota.

In fact, Trump's 51% approval in 2018 Florida exit polls is an improvement over the 49% of the vote he received in 2016 votes in Florida.
