Trump, Pelosi talk about getting along - until they don't

Minorities LGBT make history in 2018 midterms

Gender equality was an important issue for women in this election, according to a June 2018 survey for Gender Watch 2018, a nonpartisan project tracking gender dynamics this election season. But the stakes here would be different, and more fraught, especially for a likely 2020 presidential primary candidate.

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.

Hours earlier, the president had hailed a "big victory" in the midterm election and tweeted that "now we can all get back to work and get things done!" "It's clear that Donald Trump also inspired his supporters in rural areas to show up".

Trump said that if Democrats try to use their majority to issue subpoenas, it would be a "war-like posture".

But that approach did not ultimately appeal to women in swing districts across the country.

"Evers in Wisconsin was just a wonderful, wonderful victory", Sanders said, "because he ended up defeating one of the most reactionary governors in America, in Scott Walker".

That's because "Congress doesn't have much of an ability to control trade policy", analysts at RBC Capital Markets wrote in a recent note. "There was a historic gender gap - 23 point gender gap in congressional voting, and that's larger than ever".

Last night we saw Beto O'Rourke make a statewide race in Texas competitive for the first time in decades.

"We're not going for the lowest common denominator, we're going for the boldest common denominator", she said at her own press conference.

But the Republican-controlled House and Senate, with Trump's backing, made a decision to plow forward with long-promised plans to repeal Obamacare. The former Central Intelligence Agency officer beat Tea Party incumbent Dave Brat in no small part through the activism of local liberal women's groups. "I think it's a reminder that this has to be done so that legally it meets the law and I think that there are some precedents for this". Representative Robin Kelly of IL, who had previously signaled her opposition to Pelosi, is one of them.

Ending eight years of Republican control that began with the tea party revolt of 2010, Democrats picked off more than two dozen GOP-held districts in suburbs across the nation on the way to securing the 218 seats needed for a majority.

Ubisoft said that it would be supporting Assassin's Creed Odyssey for a long time to come, and it's already off to a good start. Another update coming this month is visual customisation, which allows players to customise the look of each armor component.

Republicans backed by the White House defeated Democratic senators in several states won by Trump in 2016 - Florida, Indiana, Missouri and North Dakota. The parties of first-term presidents tend to lose seats in both chambers in the first midterm elections.

Paddy Power also identified another threat - impeachment. Former Sen. Michelle Fischbach's departure in May to be sworn in as lieutenant governor triggered an all-out brawl for the Senate majority, but GOP Rep. Jeff Howe easily won that seat. The share of women identifying as Democrats or leaning Democratic is up 4 percentage points since 2015 and is at one of its highest points since 1992.

"The Democrats have retaken the US House of Representatives, dealing a major blow to President Donald Trump's domestic agenda, but if anxious politicians in Beijing think that means a reprieve from the White House, they should think again", CNNadvised on Wednesday, making a similar argument that House Democrats can do little to help Beijing and probably wouldn't be inclined to do so if they could.

Exit polls are a tool for understanding how and why people vote - but should not be viewed as complete knowledge.

"There's a bigger divide on education. We call it shaking the snow globe", Sena said. The winners included Democrat Mikie Sherrill, a former Navy pilot and federal prosecutor who ran for a suburban Newark seat.

Race and ethnicity also provide further divisions within groups of female voters.

Democrats will now be able to block legislation and light a fire under Trump's feet with investigations of his opaque finances and Russian interference in the 2016 election. "This way, they'll come to me, we'll negotiate, maybe we'll make a deal, maybe we won't, that's possible". "Democrats at least have the luxury of largely taking women of color (votes) for granted".

Whatever the final tally, Democrats' majority will be slim enough that they'll have to worry about defectors on both the right and left wings of their party. "All you are going to do is end up in back and forth and back and forth. Certainly whether they're married or not".

Meanwhile, several 2020 presidential prospects easily won re-election, including Sens.

Neal and Representative Bill Pascrell, who is set to chair the Ways and Means trade subcommittee, are promising to haul Trump's top trade lieutenants into hearings not only to explain their strategy on China but also on future trade negotiations with the European Union, Japan and Britain.

"The rhetoric doesn't solve the problem", said McConnell.
