The "blue wave" that some had feared from Election Day never fully materialised.

He also announced that he that Vice President Mike Pence would be his running mate again in the 2020 elections. But blue-collar voters and rural America embraced his aggressive talk and stances.

President Donald Trump urged Democrats on Wednesday to "put partisanship aside" as he bluntly warned them against using their newfound control of the US House of Representatives to tie up his administration in investigations.

Nevertheless, Democrats also won seven governorships, including states such as Wisconsin and Kansas that President Trump had won in 2016, and came close to breaching the Republican fortress in Texas, where incumbent Senator Ted Cruz barely held on to his seat, while narrowly losing gubernatorial races in Georgia and Florida. We want to do something on healthcare, they want to do something on healthcare.

The elections also exposed an extraordinary political realignment in an electorate defined by race, gender, and education that could shape USA politics for years to come.

The GOP's successes were fuelled by a coalition that's decidedly older, whiter, more male and less likely to have college degrees. Democrats relied more upon women, people of colour, young people and college graduates. But "America First"-taken together with tax reform and deregulation, which helped create today's booming economy and record-low unemployment-resonated in many parts of conservative America".

Some leading Democrats have suggested they will use a 1924 law that allows the the chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee to obtain the tax returns of any American from the Treasury Secretary.

"I am so honoured to share both the ballot and the stage with the many visionary, bold women who have raised their hand to run for public office", said Ayanna Pressley, who became the first black woman elected to Congress from MA.

For the first time in the nation's history there will be more than 100 women in the U.S. House of Representatives. Tammy Baldwin held off a challenge from Republican Leah Vukmir, but her fellow Democrats Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota and Claire McCaskill of Missouri were defeated by their Republican opponents.

Midterm elections are typically hard for the party in power, but the GOP's hold on power was further weakened by an unusually large number of retirements as well as infighting between conservatives and centrists over their allegiance to Trump.

Trump waited until late in the night to weigh in on the midterm vote, tweeting a succinct message that overlooked expected Democratic gains in the House, writing: "Tremendous success tonight".

With 218 seats needed for a majority in the 435-member Houses, Democrats have won 220 and the Republicans 193, with winners undetermined in 22 races.

Some hurt worse than others.

The November 6 midterm election was a very good one for the Democrats. Voters scored Trump positively on the economy and for standing up "for what he believes in".

The loss of 26 seats in the House, meanwhile, is dwarfed by the 63 seats lost by President Barack Obama in 2010 and the 52 seats lost by President Bill Clinton in 1994.
