The Americans are going to flock to vote in the mid-term mid-term losses. Before Tuesday had 31 million voters – a record – in a general election cast their vote, in a parlementsverkiezing that turned out to be a referendum on Donald Trump.

The president warned in full election for ‘electoral fraud’, without having to prove them. But by that rhetoric of the American president, there is a chance that there will be calls for recounts, and that the results of dozens of races for the House, the Senate or the governorship in doubt, be drawn. Which result, the gap between the two dominant parties is only even bigger.

What that results: Wednesday morning do you know whether the polls this time, however, just sat: in other words, the Democratic opposition in the USA has managed to take the majority in the House of Representatives, to conquer and or the Republicans control of the Senate is retained.

To the House to win back, the Democrats 23 seats to the Republicans win. If that happens, then it’s definitely thanks to a number of candidates who for the first time to participate in the elections and in highly competitive races with their Republican opponents are involved, such as Amy McGrath, the Democratic candidate for the House in a district in Kentucky, or Abigail Spanberger, Democrate for the House, in Virginia.

In the Senate the opposition but two seats to conquer to the control in your hands. That only seems easy on paper, because in reality the Democrats are not only two additional senators elected, but also a large number of Democratic seats to defend – almost three times as much as the Republicans.

In states that two years ago, convincing red colored and with a wide margin voted for Donald Trump, promise sitting Democratic senators, it pretty tricky to get. So look for the winner of the neck-to-nekrace in Missouri, between the Democratic senator Claire McCaskill and her Republican challenger Josh Hawley, the attorney-general of that state.

The Americans also choose 39 governors. In Georgia can Stacey Abrams, the first black governor of a U.s. state. And in Florida there will be an exciting election between Andrew Gillum, the Democratic mayor of Tallahassee, and the Republican Ron DeSantis, who, during his campaign, the full support of Donald Trump.

To keep the Republicans their majority in both chambers, it feels Trump is confirmed to be on the same way to continue to do so. With a Democratic House can make the opposition more research into the state of affairs in the White House. Conquer the Democrats in the entire Congress, then they can have their own legislative agenda, but can, by Trump will be blocked. Regardless of the result, take the division in the U.S. after these midterms so far.
