2 Republicans opposed by Trump win in Kentucky, N. Carolina

Voters rebuffed President Donald Trump and nominated two Republicans he opposed to House seats from North Carolina and Kentucky on Tuesday. Calls in higher-profile races in Kentucky and New York faced days of delay as swamped officials count mountains of mail-in ballots.

In western North Carolina, GOP voters picked 24-year-old investor Madison Cawthorn, who uses a wheelchair following an accident, over Trump-backed real estate agent Lynda Bennett. The runoff was for the seat vacated by GOP Rep. Mark Meadows, who resigned to become Trumps chief of staff and joined his new boss in backing Bennett.

Kentucky Republican Rep. Thomas Massie, a libertarian-minded maverick who often clashes with GOP leaders, was renominated for a sixth House term. Trump savaged Massie in March as a "disaster for America" who should be ejected from the party after he forced lawmakers to return to Washington during a pandemic to vote on a huge economic relief package. - Posted on : 24-June-2020

Democrats win House in setback for Trump

A Democratic majority in the lower chamber for the first time in eight years will restrict his ability to steer his programme through Congress.

But Mr Trumps Republicans are set to strengthen their grip on the Senate.

Tuesdays vote was seen as a referendum on a polarising president, even though he is not up for re-election till 2020.

The election confirms a historical trend for the party that is not in the White House to make gains in the mid-terms. - Posted on : 08-November-2018

The Persistence of Stormy Daniels

It was a rough week for President Trump.

Michael D. Cohen, his former lawyer and longtime fixer, admitted that he'd paid $130,000 in hush money to the pornographic film star Stormy Daniels - real name Stephanie Clifford - at the direction of Mr. Trump for the principal purpose of influencing the election.

It's a saga that has been unfolding erratically since January, with admissions, denials and conflicting accounts.

But a central theme to this case has not wavered amid the blithering: It is about how the most powerful person on the planet treats women. And it is about how Ms. Clifford, a woman who would be easy to cast aside as not credible, has remained persistent and vocal - despite repeated attempts from the Trump camp to diminish and silence her. - Posted on : 24-August-2018

Balderson Wins Special Election for Ohio House Seat

Republicans succeeded in holding on to a traditionally safe congressional district in Ohio on Friday when State Senator Troy Balderson eked out a narrow victory over a Democratic challenger, Danny O‘Connor, according to The Associated Press, in a special election whose result was too close to call for nearly three weeks. Mr. Balderson will hold the seat for just over two months before he faces Mr. O‘Connor again in the general election in November.

Party leaders celebrated Mr. Balderson‘s win, but the nail-biting result - and the prospect of repeating the race so soon - amplified Republican anxieties about the midterm elections, when they must contend with demoralized centrist Republicans, popular unease with the Trump administration and energized Democrats eager to retake control of the House. - Posted on : 24-August-2018

Prediction model for America's mid-term elections

ON NOVEMBER 6th 2018 the United States will hold elections for all 435 seats in the House of Representatives, the lower chamber of Congress. These are contested every two years, both alongside the presidential race and in mid-term elections. (There will also be 35 seats up for grabs in the Senate, the upper chamber, which holds elections every two years for about a third of its six-year positions.) The Economist has developed a statistical model for the House, to predict the results of every individual race and the battle for a majority. We will publish updates every day until the election at economist.com/midterms. For readers curious to understand how we produce these estimates, our methodology is outlined below.

The Economist‘s model of the contest for the House of Representatives proceeds from two basic premises. The first is that, when facing an uncertain future, virtually every scenario has some chance of occurring, and highly unlikely events can be particularly important. So accurately modelling the shape of all points on a probability distribution-particularly the tails that represent long-shot scenarios-can often be more important than getting the average right. - Posted on : 24-August-2018

what are Democrats' chances in 2018?

The 2018 midterm elections are likely to be a referendum on Donald Trump‘s whirlwind presidency and its political accomplishments, or lack thereof. The stakes are high for Trump - not only would Democratic control of either chamber create yet another obstacle to his legislative agenda, and raise the possibility of impeachment, but it would also mean Democrats would have control of congressional committees, with the ability to conduct oversight of the administration and issue subpoenas to recalcitrant officials. - Posted on : 24-August-2018
