Democrats Gain US House of Representatives, GOP Bolsters US Senate

CHICAGO BEARS RADIO -- WBBM Newsradio 780 "Traffic on the 8's"

Democrats on Tuesday November 6, 2018 captured the House of Representatives for the first time in eight years, break a complete control of legislative power by Republicans in Washington D.C. The Democrats net gain in the House of Representatives was 25 (they needed 23). The Republicans net gain in the Senate was 4. However, the Democrats may have an internal leadership struggle, as many of the Democrats elected to the House of Representatives have said on record that they will not support Nancy Pelosi’s return as House Speaker. The November 2018 mid-term election results means the House of Representatives will have been overturned by political party three times in the last 12 years.

The GOP, who solidified their Senate majority efforts, will now turn toward focusing on a successful 2020 presidential race.

Republicans performed strongly in the deep red states, keeping control of the US. Senate is important for Trump’s efforts to place conservative judges on the Supreme Court.

Republicans picked up U.S. Senate seats in Florida, Indiana, Missouri, and North Carolina. When the dust settles, the new state governors will be known, and the associated political machines, benefitting by the party of their respective governors, will begin work to getting a president elected from their own party.

The loss of the U.S. House of Representatives is a serious blow to the president who must now brace for the novel experience of oversight from Capitol Hill with Democratic committee chairmen who have promised constraints on his power

Within minutes of their victory being confirmed, Democrats were already threatening to go after Trump’s tax returns. Democratic Rep. Jerrold Nadler, who is slated to steer the House Judiciary Committee proclaimed a warning that the election was about accountability for Trump.

Another cloud looming over Republican leaders will be that the Republican majority will leave Washington for holiday break with Obamacare still functioning and with an increasing deficit compounded by GOP tax cuts.

Analysts see the Democratic win of the House of Representatives a result of strong support of suburban voters who reject Trump’s strong rhetoric. The Democrat campaigns also attracted a higher proportion of younger voters than at the last midterm elections in 2014. Analysts see a growing urban/rural divide, with urban, diverse, affluent Democratic areas, and largely white, rural conservative area — much like Chicagoland vs downstate Illinois.

The new Democratic majority in the House of Representatives would technically have ability to initiate impeachment proceedings against President Donald Trump, depending on Robert Mueller’s special counsel investigation. However, the Election Day gains by Republicans in the Senate decrease the chances that there would be a two-thirds majority, which is necessary needed to convict a president, impeach him and evict him from the White House.
