‘I can’t wait for the next two years to be over,’ says voter after midterms

“I can’t wait for the next two years to be over,” said Meredith Cook.

“I presume that things will kinda keep trending towards the blue side so, we’ll see. Fingers crossed,” said Rick H.

“I think the fact that we have a little bit of tension now in Congress is going to be a good thing, it’s maybe a little bit more checks and balances,” said Greg Borchert.

Donald Trump faced greater restraints on his presidency after Democrats won control of the U.S. House of Representatives and pledged to hold the Republican accountable after a tumultuous two years in the White House. Trump and his fellow Republicans expanded their control of the U.S. Senate in Tuesday’s midterm elections, following a divisive campaign marked by fierce clashes over race and immigration.

But they lost their majority in the House, a setback for the president after a campaign that became a referendum on his leadership.

With some races still undecided, Democrats were headed for a gain of more than 30 seats, beyond the 23 they needed to claim their first majority in the 435-member House in eight years.
