How can the Republicans keep the house
The Republicans retain control in the House of Representatives. Several US media reported this, citing their projections.
That was to be expected - the Democrats would have had to gain 30 seats to regain a majority in the House of Representatives (last election: Republicans 246, Democrats 188 seats).
The lower house of the Congress has the foresight in budgetary matters; laws require the approval of both chambers, including the Senate.
Majority in the Senate does not overturn
The Democrats had better chances of seizing power in the other Chamber of Congress, the Senate. There they would only have had to take four seats from the Republicans (if Hillary Clinton becomes president, five otherwise). They had won one of them in the course of the evening with the candidate Tammy Duckworth in the state of Illinois. However, they could neither win the open and so far Republican seat in Indiana, nor claim seats from other states for themselves.
North Carolina can hold Republicans in the Senate election. Republican incumbent Richard Burr is defending his seat against Democrat and civil rights activist Deborah Ross. The 60-year-old was always just ahead in the polls. The Democrats always hoped that Ross would overtake Burr after all. But she had to admit defeat. And in Wisconsin, the promising Democrat Russ Feingold failed because of the incumbent Ron Johnson.
A third of the Senate stood for election. The Republicans currently have 54 seats there and the Democrats 44. Two seats belong to independent senators who are, however, counted among the Democrats. With a victory in the Senate election, the Democrats could have increased their influence on the composition of the Supreme Court, the highest court in the United States.
