Democrats captured the House on Tuesday as Americans stampeded to the polls for a historic midterm that was as much a referendum on President Trump’s policies and behavior as it was about control of Congress.
Fox News declared at 9:45 p.m. that Democrats had gained at least 23 seats in the lower chamber, giving Democrats control of the House for the first time since 2010.
“Fox can now project that Democrats will take control of the House of Representatives for the first time in eight years, dealing a major setback to President Trump’s legislative agenda and giving fresh hope to liberals who want to investigate and perhaps even impeach the president,” the network’s congressional reporter Chad Pergram wrote on Twitter.
According to exit polling by CNN, two-thirds of voters said their vote in Tuesday’s congressional election was about Trump, with more saying they were showing up at the polls to express opposition than support for the president.
Trump’s approval rating was negative among the nation’s voters, and more said the US was on the wrong track than heading in the right direction.
Still, almost 7 in 10 said the economy was in good shape, and those who said their personal finances were in better shape now than two years ago outnumbered those who believed their finances were worse off, according to the polling.
