Here’s Who Would’ve Won If the Midterms Were a Presidential Election

Trump faces a blitz of investigations from Democratic-run House

By contrast, when President Donald Trump addressed the results of the 2018 midterms - when his party lost at least 31 seats and control of the House - he focused primarily on Republicans' ability to flip at least three seats in the Senate.

The survey, conducted among 680 registered voters who identified themselves as Democrats or independents, found that "none of the above" was the most popular choice among potential 2020 challengers to President Trump.

"I remember the price we paid for trying to, well actually we did impeach Bill Clinton, I kind of remember all the enthusiasm of lots of Republicans in the House and Senate", stated the Senate majority leader. "All you're going to do is end up in back-and-forth and back-and-forth, and two years is going to go up, and we won't have done a thing".

He said a polarized Congress likely would pose many obstacles for Trump, as Democrats could challenge Republicans' domestic policies, including slowing or stopping the repeal of Obama-era healthcare programs, slowing some of Trump's immigration policies and slowing or reversing the push against environmental regulations. With Trump's deeply polarizing presence making it harder for moderates in both parties to win in unfavorable territory, the effort for Democrats to hang onto and pick up red-leaning districts and states in presidential election years becomes even more difficult.

"In all fairness, Nancy Pelosi deserves to be chosen Speaker of the House by the Democrats", Trump tweeted.

President Donald Trump points to CNN's Jim Acosta as he speaks during a news conference in the East Room of the White House, Wednesday, Nov. 7, 2018, in Washington. "I don't think we'll have any scattershot freelancing in terms of this".

But the congresswoman added, "We have a constitutional responsibility to have oversight". In 2007, Trump praised her as "the best", when she was first sworn in as speaker. In the lower chamber of Congress, Democrats so far have 219-193 seat majority. Two years ago, Democrats lost the national House vote by 1 percent. House Democrats could force Trump to scale back his legislative ambitions, possibly dooming his promises to fund a border wall with Mexico and pass a second major tax-cut package. While such gridlock will certainly preclude any meaningful legislative action on true healthcare reform, or in shoring up the border, it also means that the Democrats can not get much done with their agenda, either.

During a phone call with President Trump Tuesday night, McConnell thanked the president for hitting the road in support of Republican candidates.

Separately, House Judiciary Democrats called on Whitaker in a letter bit.ly/2PPqJ4q to recuse himself and keep the Mueller investigation under the supervision of Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, a career Justice Department official who has given the special counsel full scope to pursue leads. "They did very poorly". "Being the majority, I'm just going to blame them", he said.

"The worst-case scenario - or best case depending on your point of view - you prove he committed perjury, about a awful subject and the Judicial Conference recommends you impeach him".

Trump "may not like it, but he and his administration will be held accountable to our laws and to the American people". His corporate tax cuts and the deregulation that have played a large hand in the US stock market's rally since the 2016 election, however, are likely to remain untouched. "In this all important final week, only by relentlessly driving home our For The People message of health, jobs and integrity in government will we win a better future for all Americans".

"Well, I'd like to be president", said.
