United States swing to left in House net positive for NZ

In a post-midterm election news conference Wednesday, President Trump doubled down on his endorsement for Pelosi (D-Calif.), the presumptive new Speaker after Democrats recaptured the House in Tuesday's midterm elections. In a tweet Trump said that Pelosi "has earned this great honor" and suggested the Republican party could help her secure the job.

During his own Wednesday press conference, Trump said if Democrats offered an idea for middle-income tax cuts he would work with them, and said, "I would certainly be willing to do a little bit", when asked if he might consider adjustments to other tax rates.

But it's less clear if split government can produce legislative results. The new Democratic House will become a beachhead for congressional Democrats bent on initiating a sustained attack on the president. But history didn't cost the GOP control of the House and history neither forced House Republicans to appease an unpopular president.

Youth turnout, as defined by voters between 18 and 29, surged to a number not seen in a midterm election in a quarter century. The first is to view the Democratic retaking of the House as an opportunity for Israel to reach out again to Democrats and liberal Jews who overwhelmingly supported them after years of the Jewish state perceived as enthusiastically praising Trump.

This year, women not only increased their numbers, but the new class of lawmakers also includes women from a wide patchwork of backgrounds, adding to a Congress that is expected to be more diverse. In Kansas, Democrat Laura Kelly defeated Kris Kobach, a staunch Trump ally, where outgoing Republican Governor Sam Brownback suffered from low approval ratings.

The mixed verdict in the first nationwide election of Trump's presidency showed the limits of his hard-line immigration rhetoric in America's evolving political landscape, where college-educated voters in the suburbs rejected his warnings of a migrant "invasion".

More recently, she has become one of Trump's fiercest critics, going so far as to call for his impeachment. She beat Phil Bredesen by nine points. "It's about our country".

The president phoned Pelosi on Tuesday evening to congratulate her after Democrats were officially projected to win back control of the House. Activists bypassed Pelosi's vast party apparatus, which shoveled $129 million to the Democratic campaign committee, and instead rewarded candidates through online donations and social media promotion.

"She represents the party of".

"I don't think anyone deserves anything", Mrs. Pelosi said in response to the president's comments.

Schiller said, "Everything about the rules of the game, about achieving power, has changed out from under her".

Nancy Pelosi shakes hands with Donald Trump on the day of his inauguration. Almost 40 percent of voters cast their ballots to express opposition to the president, according to AP VoteCast, a national survey of the electorate, while about 25 percent said they voted to express support for Trump.

"This isn't just the year of the woman, this is the year of every woman", said Cecile Richards, who served as the president of Planned Parenthood for more than a decade, noting the groundbreaking diversity among the women who have run for office this year.

Yet it's that kind of middle-road tack that risks alienating Democrats who want nothing to do with Trump.

In the Senate, Democrats were facing an uphill battle because they were defending 26 races, while just nine Republican seats were up for grabs. "If they come to me with things that I'm not in love with, I'm going to do it because I respect them". Top-ranking leaders Steny Hoyer and Jim Clyburn are also in their mid-70s.

Schiff has said his panel would probe allegations that Russian money may have been laundered though Trump businesses and that Moscow might have financial leverage over him.

The House majority will be narrow, and some tension surrounds its choice of a speaker and other officers.

On Tuesday, at least two of those states sent women to Congress. Pennsylvania elected four women to the House, and Oklahoma elected one when Democrat Kendra Horn won an upset victory against a Republican incumbent. "But it means that if we see a need to go forward, we will", she said. "I know how to pass legislation, I know how to win elections and I know part of my responsibility is to make way for the next generation of leaders".
