Election 2018 Dems ride high on slow roll of wins

Election 2018 Dems ride high on slow roll of wins

Sinema won Arizona's open U.S. Senate seat in a race that was among the most closely watched in the nation, beating McSally in the battle to replace GOP Sen.

While the expected "blue wave" of Democrat support did not appear on election night last Tuesday, some say it is gradually emerging.

As vote counting presses on in several states, the Democrats have steadily chalked up victories across the country, firming up their grip on the U.S. House and statehouses. Mixed with their expectations-inflating thirst for a historically unique rebuke of Donald Trump, many on the left felt as though the party had blown it, even as plenty of key races were still undecided.

Of the 35 seats up for election, Democrats would need to keep their 26 seats, and win back two from the Republicans to win.

Currently Congress is dominated by the Democrats, but a reshuffle could see the Republicans take control. Because of this drastic variation between candidates in the same party, it is misleading (likely even dishonest) and unethical to base legitimacy on the "popular vote" of the House or Senate. It worked; first-time midterm voters chose Democratic candidates by 26 points over Republicans.

Pelosi's backers are also working to prove she has the necessary support among caucus members. Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel tweeted, citing Senate wins in Indiana, Missouri, North Dakota and Tennessee, among others.

They also intend to hold hearings on Mr Trump's family separation policy, the sacking of James Comey from his job as Federal Bureau of Investigation director, and the President's tax returns.

This is because Democrats have more seats up for re-election this year, with the Republicans defending only nine. Add Democratic Party as an interest to stay up to date on the latest Democratic Party news, video, and analysis from ABC News.

The Democrats found success by attracting support from women, minorities and college-educated voters.

All of the new Republicans are white, and just one is female.

Democrats featured historic diversity on the ballot. Now that the election is (mostly) over, how will they follow through on that campaign focus? If this corps of anti-Pelosi Democrats decide to stick together, the California Democrat could find herself unable to clinch the votes. Rep. Jackie Rosen has defeated incumbent Sen. Mike Coffman of Colorado, Barbara Comstock of Virginia, Carlos Curbelo of Florida and Dana Rohrabacher of California.

According to FiveThirtyEight's polling forecast, Democrats have an 87.7% chance of winning control.

Far more of the Senate landscape was decided early, although contests in Florida and MS remain outstanding. But nearly a dozen races are still outstanding, which leave the potential for even bigger gains. High-profile contests in Florida and Georgia remain outstanding, though Republicans hold narrow leads in both states.

Overall, they flipped state legislative chambers in eight states this midterm season, including Washington state's Senate in 2017. The GOP also took back five Senate seats that year.

The result is that our articles are reaching fewer people at a time when we need genuinely independent news more than ever.

Meuser said that voters have not fully realized that "the Democratic Party they voted for is not the same Democratic Party that their parents and their grandparents have been a part of".

Many Democrats have yet to shake off the stinging losses of 2016.

"This is step one of a two-step process to right the ship", Guy Cecil, chairman of the pro-Democrat super PAC Priorities USA, said of the midterms.
