For a few hours on election night, it appeared as though the midterms had turned disastrous for Democrats: The early returns suggested the party's long-assumed House takeover might not happen after all, and that their performance in Senate races could turn out to be so bad that it would put the upper chamber out of reach not just for the next two years, but for the next four. Acting Secretary of State Robyn Crittenden - still a Republican - says there are not enough outstanding votes to allow Abrams to pull close enough for the December runoff. This is the first time since 1947 that members of the Republican caucus in the delegation have been in the single digits.
The party is still figuring out its next steps on health care, and Nancy Pelosi and her colleagues will have a lot of decisions to make and details to sort out.
Who will win the United States mid-terms? All three outgoing Democrats - Sens. No, Trump has contributed to the point of engendering hate expressing itself in terms that his own stumbling tongue can not equal.
Dianne Feinstein, top Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee, called for hearings into "the possible impact on Special Counsel Mueller's investigation".
We have that sense because of the exit poll, a survey taken of nearly 18,000 voters after they cast their ballots on Election Day.

She eventually lost to her Democratic opponent 45.7 percent to 54.3 percent.
Another race to not yet be decided is the MS seat of former Sen. If they don't, he said, the president is in for trouble.
Dhillon, founder of the Dhillon Law Group Inc. and the Republican National Committeewoman for California, told Ingraham that Ocasio-Cortez's protest stunt was "a little wacky and alarming, I'm sure particularly for Nancy Pelosi and other senior leaders of the Democratic Party, because they've won the election already". A nonpartisan candidate took 3.3 percent.
Both were voted by acclamation, Fox News is told. "I would expect, at this moment in time, that he will deteriorate 5 to 10 points with the suburban demographic in 2020".
Some Republicans in the state have wondered why the GOP base was not entirely mobilized and engaged in such a crucial election.
"Over the last week we've moved from relief at winning the House to rejoicing at a genuine wave of diverse, progressive and inspiring Democrats winning office", said Ben Wikler, Washington director of the liberal group MoveOn.
They also intend to hold hearings on Mr Trump's family separation policy, the sacking of James Comey from his job as Federal Bureau of Investigation director, and the President's tax returns.
Last week's midterms saw Democrats win control of the House for the first time since 2010 while Republicans have increased their majority in the Senate. Those findings come despite the fact that Trump repeatedly pushed the idea of voter fraud in the runup to the election - seemingly ignoring the reams of data that suggest there really is no such thing as widespread voter fraud. Those numbers were obviously split starkly on partisan lines - Democrats believe the probe is justified, Republicans think it is political - but it's clear from the numbers that Trump's "witch hunt" mantra has had an effect.
Mr Trump actually suffered the worst midterm results in the House for any Republican president since 1974, after Watergate.
But despite all of this, the more votes are counted, the tighter the race becomes.
Trump met strong protests when he visited California back in 2016 election, but he did receive about 4.48 million votes there in the 2016 election.
Many Democrats have yet to shake off the stinging losses of 2016.
"And so ... the Democrats - they're overplaying their hand ..."
Democrats also did very well in the state legislature. Moscow has said it did not interfere in the election.
Many GOP leaders are now in the process of regrouping and pondering why their messages were not well received by voters.
Meuser said that voters have not fully realized that "the Democratic Party they voted for is not the same Democratic Party that their parents and their grandparents have been a part of".
