What does a Democrat win mean for the Trump government?

Historically, many Democrats in Congress quibble about trade deals, usually angry that they are not pro-union enough, or they don't impose enough regulations on the economy, and are insufficiently draconian with environmental laws, but as Thompson said, in the end, they usually wind up voting for the deals.

Were the Democrats to actually pull the trigger and impeach Trump, without any good reason other than they just do not like him, the American people would likely take note and punish the Democrats at the polls in 2020. The House is the chamber of U.S. government most directly reflective of the national mood, as all members answer to voters every two years, and it moved decisively in a Democratic direction. That nine-point swing is the biggest such move toward Democrats since 1948. "Incredible day. And last night the Republican Party defied history to expand our Senate majority while significantly beating expectations in the House".

Control of the lower chamber will allow Democrats to block key parts of President Trump's agenda and re-open investigations into his administration. "Yesterday was such a very Big Win!" he tweeted shortly after dawn. "I would hope that people in the Democrat Party will be collegial in working with use for the betterment of the people of the state of North Carolina".

Beyond that, LePage made the Legislature's work more hard by often refusing to allow members of his Cabinet or other top administration officials to provide testimony to legislative committees.

In Wisconsin, the Democrats finally claimed Scott Walker's scalp. But the GOP held on to big prizes, narrowly keeping the OH and Florida governors' mansions despite spirited opposition.

Evers spokeswoman Britt Cudaback said it was "unfortunate" that Vos was "doubling down on division just hours after Governor-elect Evers called on Speaker Vos and Majority Leader Fitzgerald to set aside differences and work together on the pressing issues facing our state". Meanwhile, more than 8 in 10 of those who consider that "not important" voted for Republicans. But some changes seem predictable. They include Louisiana's Cedric Richmond, 45, chairman of the Congressional Black Caucus and New Mexico's Ben Ray Lujan, 46, current chairman of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee.

And the women elected this year are overwhelmingly Democratic.

Democrat house candidate Sharice Davids reacts before speaking to supporters at a victory party in Olathe, Kan., Nov. 6, 2018. Eight women - four incumbents and four non-incumbents - would win races to the Governors' seats. No, seriously: If the Senate consisted exclusively of the states that elected senators yesterday, the Democrats would have a majority of legislators to match their majority of votes. As pollster Nate Silver's FiveThirtyEight.com put it on November 7, the GOP's "net gain" in the Senate "could be anywhere from zero to three when the races in Arizona, Florida and MS get resolved".

Republicans will hate them, vitriol will increase and if they are seen to be entirely frustrators rather than legislators in two years' time, they're going nowhere fast. The divided power in Congress combined with Trump's expansive view of executive power could herald even deeper political polarization and legislative gridlock in Washington. Remember the Benghazi probe? Hua said China is ready to work with the USA to handle differences properly, promote cooperation on the basis of mutual benefit and push forward the development of bilateral ties in the right direction. In Maine, GOP Gov. Paul LePage, who has resisted implementation of Medicaid expansion, is term-limited out of office and says he is moving to Florida.

But Republicans still overrode Perdue's vetoes on major policy matters such as the the state budget, abortion and access to Medicaid.
