Good analysis...

Looks like he lost the house (parliament). The Republics controlled both the House and the and Senate, but now they have control of only the Senate.

...in any case, the voters were very closely split at the polls; with the way the vote is split by seats so close to half and half, it will be hard to pass Legislation that is extreme in any way. Trump will have a lot more pressure on him, what with a House that is more set against him now. Acrimony (within, and) between the Houses will surely grow. America with its checks and balances, is being tested by these dynamics; united as they are, Americans are clearly divided.

...interesting times ahead.

What happened?

Most of the voters / people in the US support him.

If this is not a success for Trump and America, then it just shows what an utter failure the democrats are.

:? I guess there are three idiots then... you, Trump and Paphitis! :lol:

Here's an IQ test for you:

Q. Which is better?


A. Control of the Senate AND the House of Reps

B. Control of the Senate only.


In the past both the Democrats and Republicans have had the control of the White House, Senate and the House as well as not having any of the three. This is normal from time to time, which is not the best thing for the country, but best for the party when having all three. This is a healthy democracy where power changes hands from time to time. Both the Senate and the House has their own importance, but if I had to choose between the two as a president, I would choose the Senate, as the Senate is the last stop before a bill goes to the president to be signed.

And Trump increased his Senate majority.

I'm with you on that. I would rather the Senate.

But it was hardly the washout result the polls indicated in Congress either. The GOP only barely lost.

The result shows that Americans are not sick of the Trump Presidency and if elections were held today, Trump will be returned.

Americans just put in a bit of a insurance policy if you will, which is no different to what they did with that pussy Obama.

Of course, the other two major advantages for a president to have the Senate over the House is, Supreme Court and Federal judges confirmations, as well as not being able to remove the president from office under the articles of impeachment, as 60 votes are needed. Confirmations of Ambassadors abroad and the U.N. by the Senate are less important, but significant all the same. There are other confirmations needed by the Senate such as directors for FBI, CIA, Treasury, and the Federal Reserve Bank and so on.

Those Kavanaugh allegations were just ridiculous and finally they admitted that the sex abuse allegations were all made up.

I am at my wits end with the depths of depravity these so called "liberals" (Democrats) will stoop to Kikapu. They just can't hack it. :roll:

These people are playing right into Trumps hands.
