Republicans have 222 seats in the House of Representatives, and Democrats – 213. Such results, according to experts, will return the States to a divided government, as it was in the 60s.
The Republican Party leads the midterm elections to the US House of Representatives. Such data follows from the updated vote counts of the NBC News channel.
The Republicans currently have 222 seats, and the Democrats – 213. In the Senate, the situation is approximately equal – the Republicans have 49 seats, and the Democrats – 48. The counting of votes continues.
US President Joe Biden celebrated the preliminary election results, according to NBC News.
The American leader announced a challenge to the expectations of the Democratic Party on the results of the elections. According to him, the country is “on the right track”, and the Democrats' program is producing results.
“Red Wave” (the color of the Republicans) did not happen. The Democrats, despite the continuing risk of losing control of both chambers, performed better than any forecast,” experts noted.
Republicans can still take control of the Senate. If they still get a majority in the House of Representatives, this will return the States to the divided government that has been the norm since the 1960s, notes The Economist.
Former US President Donald Trump's party could win in Nevada and achieve a third round in Georgia, dragging out the election until December. The party’s capabilities are narrow, and there are many obstacles in its path, political analysts noted.
