Of course, Democrats have been in this position before: Two years ago, polling indicated that Hillary Clinton was more likely become the next President of the United States, and she fell short in a night that shocked the country.
Striking a dark tone at a rally in IN on Monday evening, Mr Trump accused Democrats without offering any evidence of "openly encouraging millions of illegal aliens to break our laws, violate our borders and overrun our country". In preelection polls, Donnelly looked like one of the safest Democratic incumbents from a heavily pro-Trump state.
Voters cast their ballots in the midterm elections on November 6, 2018, in Appleton, Wisconsin. More women than ever were running, along with veterans and minorities, many of them motivated by President Trump's rise.
Almost 40 percent of voters cast their ballots to express opposition to the president, according to AP VoteCast, a national survey of the electorate, while one-in-four said they voted to express support for Trump.
With control of Congress, statehouses and the president's agenda at stake, some of the nation's top elections were too close to call.
Alongside all 435 House seats and a third of the Senate on the ballot on Tuesday are 36 gubernatorial races.
Trump has defiantly rejected the idea that his own rhetoric contributed to the incidents and lamented the week before Election Day that the attacks slowed Republican momentum. Both Florida and Georgia have open governor's seats, and both races feature a black Democratic critic of the president squaring off against a white, Trump-supporting Republican.
Barcelona's Ernesto Valverde - Lionel Messi training but no decision on availability
Lionel Messi made the trip with Barcelona but is unlikely to play as he continues to recover from a fractured arm. At the back, Sergi Roberto, Gerard Pique, Clement Langlet and Jordi Alba are all likely to start.
This was seen as the most likely outcome before Americans went to the ballot box. Several dozen races where candidates from the two sides are barely separated will decide the day.
In the House, Democrats picked up seats across the map, ousting incumbent Republican Barbara Comstock in suburban Virginia and sending Donna Shalala, a former Cabinet secretary under President Bill Clinton, to the House in south Florida.
Numerous most competitive races for the House of Representatives will be fought in the suburbs, where anecdotally we have been hearing that white married women could be moving away from the GOP.
The result upends the balance of power in Washington, where Trump has enjoyed an easy ride from Republican dominance of both houses of Congress since his shock election in 2016. The district was represented for decades by GOP Rep.
His highest approval of these states is West Virginia, oddly enough, where slightly more than three-in-five approve of the job he's doing as President, but Democrat Joe Manchin was able to keep his seat. That year, they leaned Republican by 12 points, but this election they supported Democrats by 12 points. Two other GOP-held seats in Arizona and Nevada hadn't been called by early Wednesday, but Republicans will enjoy an expanded majority no matter what.
By the NCSL's record, Republican dominance of state legislatures is at a historic high.
Democrats need to net 23 seats in order to win a majority.
Democrats Ilhan OImar and Rashida Tlaib are also expected to make history in Minnesota and MI respectively as the first Muslim women elected to Congress.
The GOP campaign committee distanced itself from eight-term Rep. Steve King of Iowa after racial remarks, and his seat was unexpectedly contested in the final week of the campaign.
