But Fox News' Decision Desk projection that Democrats will now control of the House gives hope to liberals who want to continue the Russian Federation investigation, and even introduce articles of impeachment against the president.

Army veteran Max Rose also notched a win for Democrats in a race Inside Elections with Nathan L. Gonzales rated Lean Republican, defeating New York GOP Rep.

The BBC's United States partner network CBS projects the Democrats will win the 23 seats they need to take over the lower chamber of Congress. With media outlets projecting the Dems are going to retake the House of Representatives, the party is apparently not waiting for the gavel to start making moves against the president.

Republicans will keep control of the Senate but the House is likely to be won by the Democrats. O'Rourke held an early lead over the former presidential candidate in the race for the US Senate, before the race tightened.

But slim hopes of capturing the Senate and sealing a "blue wave" looked unlikely after Republicans held firm and even made gains. Women preferred Democrats by a roughly a 20-point margin this election, according to exit polls, up from a 12-point gap for Hillary Clinton over Trump in 2016 and just a 4-point edge in the 2014 midterms.

The tax law was particularly problematic for Republicans in New Jersey, where at least three GOP-held seats flipped. This is someone the president went in and closed the deal for last night.

As the returns came in, the House was on track to break the record of 84 female members of one party or the other.

U.S. Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand cruised to re-election against her Republican opponent, Chele Farley.

Democrats were most optimistic about the House, a sprawling battlefield set largely in America's suburbs where more educated and affluent voters in both parties have soured on Trump's turbulent presidency, despite the strength of the national economy.

Some political pundits say that the midterm could also decide whether Mr Trump will be a one or two-term president. He's campaigned for dozens of candidates at all levels of government.

The GOP Senate victory was magnified because Democrats stood a solid chance of wresting control of the House from Republicans.

Democrats faced a far more hard challenge in the Senate, where they were nearly exclusively on defence in rural states where Mr Trump remains popular.

Malfunctioning machines marred the first hours of voting in some precincts, including in Georgia.

Some of the biggest problems Tuesday were in Georgia, a state with a hotly contested gubernatorial election.

At a poll site in Atlanta, voters waited in the rain in long lines that stretched around the building.

Democrats, meanwhile, prioritized a different message in the midterms and heavily emphasized promises to safeguard health care for voters, including protecting individuals with pre-existing conditions.

The magnitude of the Democrats' gains in recapturing a majority in the House of Representatives is "not a miraculous achievement", he added.

At a polling station in Arlington, Virginia, head election officer William Harkins said "it's a very good turnout". "We're voting for the community and the country", he said.

Pelosi has remained noncommittal amid speculation that she would step aside to make way for new leadership, regardless of the election results. Moscow denies meddling and Trump denies any collusion.

A number of other politicians have also responded to the results, giving their verdict on the night.

Dry weather was forecast for the West and Southwest, but significant snow accumulations were expected across the northern Rockies.

She said: "When Democrats win and we will win tonight, we will have a Congress that is open, transparent and accountable to American people".
