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

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

He has also inspired record-breaking turnout at the ballot box. In addition, any investigative action will also be countered with probes by the Republicans in the Senate, Trump warned.

That's 30 million more people who participated in the 2014 midterms, representing the highest raw vote total for a non-presidential election in USA history and the highest overall voter participation rate in a midterm election in a half century.

The biggest takeaway, I write in my column at The Week, is the reversion of Trump country in the "blue wall" back to its political identity - a reversion that has serious implications for 2020. They are projecting a majority of at least 110-93 after defeating Cambria County Rep. Bryan Barbin and winning a Clinton County district held most recently by retiring Democratic Whip Mike Hanna.

Nadler is expected to become House Judiciary chairman when a new Democratic House majority, elected in Tuesday's midterm elections, takes over in the new Congress that convenes in January.

The vote was seen as a referendum on the president, even though he is not up for re-election till 2020.

Republican leaders had been bracing for a backlash against Trump, with the potential losses in the House of Representatives well beyond the 23 seats Democrats needed to seize control.

But both parties exceeded turnout expectations. "Legislative results don't match up with what is happening across the state".

In battleground OH, voting was up 42 percent compared to the 2014 midterm election.

The trend was similar in battleground Florida, where voting increased 33 percent over 2014.

Texas is set to send its first Hispanic women to Congress, as Democrats Veronica Escobar and Sylvia Garcia both won their races.

Even with the surge, Republicans won the highest-profile races in all three states.

And there was the usual anti-Republican liberal media wave, which tried to prop up Democrats.

VoteCast reported that more women voted for Democratic candidates than men. "They can play that game, but we can play it better", Trump said.

U.S. President Donald Trump on Wednesday indicated his willingness to work with Democrats on certain issues such as infrastructure after Republicans lost their majority in the House.

"This is a report paid for with taxpayer dollars", they added. He said the era of a state government that is in constant partisan gridlock or dysfunction because of a combative and often hostile governor was about to come to a close. Democrats will be under intense pressure from their rabid base to impeach Trump - especially after exit polling across the nation showed overwhelming majorities of Democratic voters favor impeachment.

"We still live in a world where women face that", Coyle said, "and she hit the right tone in responding to all of that while staying true to herself".

Evers narrowly defeated Republican Gov. Scott Walker on Tuesday, setting up divided government in Wisconsin for the first time since 2008.

The data left little doubt as to what caused the surge in enthusiasm.

To their everlasting discredit, the Republicans who controlled the House during the first two years of Trump's term never seriously challenged the president, placing their own careers above the importance of holding a president accountable.

In his speech, Trump also praised House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi for her remarks on bipartisan cooperation Tuesday night, saying that he "really respected" what Pelosi said and "that's what we should be doing". "As you also know, every eight years we change parties in MI". The president repeatedly flashed his temper as he insulted several reporters by name, interrupted their questions, ordered some to sit down and deemed one inquiry about his embrace of the description "nationalist" to be "racist". Iowa also posted its highest-ever midterm turnout, with 1.3 million voters casting ballots, almost matching its 1.5 million turnout in 2016.

"There are some assumptions about states Democratic presidential candidates will visit that are being truly reconsidered", Democratic strategist Anita Dunn said. They were seen as overreaching, and that helped boost Clinton's poll numbers.
