“Although there are still some seats yet to declare, the Democrats have already won a majority of seats in the House. The first signs that everything was going to plan for them came early last night when the Republican held seats of the Virginia 10th and Florida 27th districts fell to the Democrats.” Matthew explains how the Democrats retook the House of Representatives after eight years.
‘The US Midterm elections fall on November 6 and could be highly significant for the future of the Trump administration. The Republican Party would be hoping to maintain their majority in both the Senate and the House of Representatives; however, recent tumultuous events in the US have put this election on a knife edge.’ Lyell analyses the possible impact of recent events on the midterms.
“With this pattern having occurred on several occasions, many predict Democrats are poised for big wins in November. In order to capture control of the house, Democrats need a net gain of 23 seats, and a net gain of two seats in the Senate to have a majority.” Sophia explains the significance of US midterm elections.
