News projected Democrats would hold a 229-206 House majority, taking over control from the Republicans for the first time in eight years. Gallup, on Election Day, reported that 81% of voters it described as either Democrats or "Democratic leaners" are "very or somewhat worried" about what will happen in the US if Republicans maintain their majority in either the House of Representatives or the Senate. But Congress could not remove him from office without a conviction by a two-thirds majority in the Republican-controlled Senate.
With a House majority, Democrats will have the power to investigate Mr Trump's tax returns, possible business conflicts of interest and allegations involving his 2016 campaign's links to Russian Federation.

But Republicans appeared bound to hold onto the Senate, and possibly even pick up a couple of seats.
At least 64 House races remain competitive, according to a Reuters analysis of the three top nonpartisan forecasters, and Senate control was expected to come down to a half dozen close contests in Arizona, Nevada, Missouri, North Dakota, Indiana and Florida. Rep. Anna Eshoo (Calif.), who's likely to take on a bigger role on the same committee, is among the top recipients of pharmaceutical industry campaign contributions in Congress. A blue wave for Democrats never really materialized because Republicans were able to energize their own voters through a campaign full of racial anxiety and culture war items.

Voters between the ages of 18 and 34 backed Democrats by 62 percent to 34 percent, up from 2014 when 54 percent backed Democrats and 36 percent supported Republicans. First, potential voters favor Democrats by 8-9pp in socalled generic ballot polls.
Going into Election Day, Democrats needed to gain 23 seats in order to take back the House, which would allow them to throw a wrench in Trump's agenda on contentious issues, among them immigration.
