The American Democrats have taken control of the House of Representatives in the middle

Taking control of Congress’s lower chamber for the first time in eight years will allow Democrats to oppose the president’s agenda.

But Mr Trump’s Republicans will strengthen their grip on the Senate.

Tuesday’s vote is seen as a referendum on a polarizing president, although he is not re-elected by 2020.

Female candidates stole the headlight in a whale cycle billed as the year of the year.

What happens in race races?

Democrats transformed the energy into the liberal anti-trump resistance to solid elections in the first parliamentary elections since the President’s power came two years ago.

BBC’s US partner network CBS Project Democrats will win the 23 seats they need to take over the congress’s lower chamber. The Americans voted for all 435 seats in the House.

The Democrats were now able to open investigations about Mr Trump’s management and business deals, from tax returns to potential conflicts of interest.

And Republican Marsha Blackburn became Tennisson’s first women’s senator despite her male democratic challenger from pop star Taylor Swift.

Mitt Romney, the 2012 Republican President’s nominee, won his Senate Campaign Utah, as expected.

Democratic senators Joe Manchin and Bob Menendez were following tough campaigns in West Virginia and New Jersey, but it was cold comfort.

Democrats always faced an opposition battle in the Senate this year to defend 26 races, while only nine Republican seats were at stake.

The party in power historically tends to lose constitutional rights during the first half-time of a new president, especially if his national popularity is low.

But President Trump was quick to celebrate his party’s profits.

Despite his flammable campaign warnings of immigration invasion, border security proved to be a distant second in the voter’s list of concerns about care, according to CBS end-of-study data.

America’s Partisan Diggings deepen

Analysis by Anthony Zurcher, BBC News

It’s a story about two chambers.

The door of a democratically ruled senate closed. Donald Trump continues to have a re public majority ready and willing to confirm his executive and judicial appointments. The only question now is the size of his party’s advantage.

In the House of Representatives, however, the story is different. The banana with least resistance for Democrats to a majority in this House led through educated suburban districts who voted for Republicans for a long time but contained voters who may have been concerned about Donald Trump’s politics and rhetoric.

One by one, these districts were worn by the Democrats. In Virginia, Illinois and Florida, moderate republicans lost. In places like Colorado, New Jersey, Kansas, Pennsylvania, Texas and New York, Democrats are ready for victory.

It does not feel like the tsunami left many hopes, but a steadily rising tide still raises Democrats have enough victories to give them control over the House for the first time in eight years. With that, it will be possible to stop Trump’s legislative agenda in its tracks and put some teeth into the congressional supervision of his administration.

The partisan excavations in America are getting deeper. And after two years in the dark, democrats have a way to fight back.
