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.

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.

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.
