Chart of the day: How did women fare in the United States midterms?

"All that talk about a 'blue wave, ' all the talk about the American people rising up as one to repudiate Donald Trump, that just didn't happen", York said.

Which party's women candidates were the most sucessful?

Democrats suffered losses in Florida and Maryland where Democrats had hoped for pickups.

"We're looking at that, and I do want to study whatever is being said".

As millions of voters turned out to vote, Democrats claimed that they were 100 per cent sure of reclaiming the House from Mr Trump's Republicans.

Those measures, they believe, will be broadly popular. With an expanded Republican Senate majority, President Trump can confirm judges, cabinet members, and senior administration officials more easily, pushing forward with his agenda. That could lead to gridlock.

Voters were on track to send at least 99 women to the House, shattering the record of 84 now.

Dems on track to win control of House
But she added: "A Democratic Congress will work for solutions that bring us together because we have all had enough of division". If anything, he may well double down on his nativist message, because it didn't hurt the Republican campaigns across many states.

The President had dinner with his family and watched the results, which could have a profound impact on the rest of his term and could reshape Washington's balance of power, in the residence of the White House. It was on par with other recent midterm "wave" elections which had margins of 7.1 for the Republicans in 1994; 8.0 for the Democrats in 2006; 7.2 in 2010 and 5.7 in 2014 for the Republicans. As of this writing, not every race has been called and it is not yet clear how large the Democrats' majority will be, but it is already clear that the Speaker's gavel, and control of the House investigative committees, will go to them.

But they do have a lot to celebrate.

What difference will the new Congress make?

In Texas, Democrat Colin Allred, a former National Football League player and civil rights lawyer, defeated the incumbent Republican, Pete Sessions.

Democrat Madeleine Dean celebrates after winning Pennsylvania's 4th Congressional District race, in Fort Washington, Pennysylvania.

Control of the committees - where the three lawmakers are now the highest-ranking Democrats - will hand them the unilateral power to issue subpoenas if they wish, as well as to demand documents and testimony from White House officials and important figures in Trump's campaign team and businesses.With control of the legislative apparatus in the House, they will also have more money and staff for investigations.

He seized on scenes of a caravan of Central American migrants heading through Mexico for the U.S., mused on ending the constitutional guarantee of citizenship to all people born in the United States and ran a television advertisement, deemed too provocative to air by mainstream networks, that linked Democrats to a criminal who was an undocumented immigrant. Many are from the party's progressive wing. Newcomers like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, a self-described democratic socialist from NY, and Ayanna Pressley of MA will nearly certainly take the lead in pressing for a liberal agenda.

Plus, he said, Democrats have "nothing, zero", on him. High on their list of priorities is gun safety legislation, legislation to offer a pathway to citizenship for the undocumented young people known as Dreamers, and a bill to extend broad civil rights protections to gays, lesbians, bisexuals and transgender people. "I think we can just barely even understand the doors that will open up for everyone".

That may be overly optimistic, especially with Republicans in control of the Senate. And Trump himself may be in no mood to cooperate once Democrats start demanding documents - including, perhaps, the president's tax returns.

Most US media reports and straw polls suggested that Democrats had an edge in early voting.

"I don't care", he told reporters.
