Almost 4 in 10 said they were casting ballots to express opposition to him, while just 1 in 4 said their vote was an expression of support for the president. Engel is one of Israel's most reliable supporters, of either party, in the House, and so is Lowey, who will be the most influential Democrat controlling government spending.

Still, Republican voters tended to be overwhelmingly supportive of the president.

"Nothing is more powerful than the voice of the American people, and they spoke out loud and clear: Donald Trump does not stand for our values, the Republican Party has failed to hold him accountable, and it's time for bold Democratic leadership in Washington".

Still, Trump brushed off criticism that he was alienating moderate voters as he continued his massive rallies and overheated rhetoric.

Fox and NBC television networks called the result in the US House of Representatives, while confirming expectations that Trump´s Republicans will retain control of the Senate. Kamala Harris, former New York City Mayor Tom Steyer and former Vice-President Joe Biden.

It became pretty clear early in the night that a "blue wave" was never going to materialise for the Democrats in terms of House and Senate seats.

The Democrats will be taking back the House of Representatives, multiple news outlets project.

Efforts to kill "Obamacare", the Affordable Care Act that was President Barack Obama's signature policy win, are dead.

Although Democratic senators easily dispatched GOP opponents in Ohio, Pennsylvania, Michigan and Wisconsin, they didn't match those results at the gubernatorial level, failing to capture governor's races in Ohio and Iowa, two states Trump had won easily in 2016. She also tamped down liberal cries for Trump's impeachment.

The fire department said the weather-related collapse happened at the Amazon Fulfillment Centre late Friday. That caused concrete panels along a 50-foot (15-meter) section of wall to collapse.

"Thanks to you, tomorrow will be a new day in America", said House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi, adding that the victory in the House "is about restoring the Constitution's checks and balances to the Trump administration". Democrats also captured governorships in MI and IL. Democratic Senate incumbents were up for re-election, for example, in North Dakota, Indiana, and Missouri - states Trump carried by nearly 25 percentage points on average two years ago.

History was working against the president in both the House and the Senate: The president's party has traditionally suffered deep losses in his first midterm election, and 2002 was the only midterm election in the past three decades when the party holding the White House gained Senate seats. Litigation is already pending claiming foreign payments to Mr. Trump's businesses violate the Emoluments Clause of the U.S. Constitution.

Overall, 6 in 10 voters said the country was headed in the wrong direction, but roughly that same number described the national economy as excellent or good.

The election on Tuesday may resolve some issues.

The Democratic gains were fueled by women, young and Hispanic voters, a Reuters/Ipsos Election Day poll found. Fifty-five percent of women said they backed a Democrat for the House this year, compared to 49 percent in the 2014 midterm congressional election.

The president bet big on a xenophobic closing message, warning of an immigrant "invasion" that promised to spread violent crime and drugs across the nation.

Schiff, a persistent critic of Trump on the cable networks, has been bursting with frustration at what he says are the obstructions placed by the current GOP chairman, Devin Nunes of California, on the committee's investigation of alleged collusion between Russian Federation and Trump's presidential campaign.

But Mr. Trump isn't the only Republican in the executive branch with cause for concern - Democrats are also poised to launch or continue probes into Cabinet-level secretaries and federal agencies. The extraordinary United States midterm election has been a tug of war over key issues, but none has had a more dramatic impact on voters than Donald Trump, the man who isn't even on the ballot. Among those expected were Trump's adult children, White House aides, Republican officials and presidential friends. The Senate, where only 35 seats are up for grabs, has a map that favors the Republicans. And even though Harvey says none of the candidates particularly excite her, she is planning on voting for all the democratic nominees on the ballot.

In Colorado, Jared Polis will be the country's first openly gay governor. The number of seats each U.S. state receives depends on its population size.
