And should President Trump be anxious about his chances for re-election in 2020?
Given the enormous amount of energy being directed at such non-events such as Acosta-gate-did the CNN reporter manhandle a White House intern during a post-midterm press conference?-it's likely we as a country are choosing the latter. Aides had been quietly prepared for this outcome for weeks and will now kick into overdrive before the new Congress takes office in January.
Miller said any Democratic emphasis on the administration's perceived foreign policy failures is likely to fade away as domestic concerns rise to the fore. But Trump is not most presidents, and after making a gesture of decency, praising would-be House speaker Nancy Pelosi, he reverted back to his combative and confrontational mode in a freakish press conference in which he threatened to adopt a "warlike posture" against Democrats if they used their newfound power at the House to investigate his financial and political dealings.
Some Republicans sought to explain Michigan's shift to a more purple hue as nearly an inevitability after a long stint of one-party control.
And after two years of the chaos and confusion that is the Trump administration, voters were also motivated to bring back sanity and decency to USA politics. It wasn't clear what "leaks" he was referring to. Trump himself at times took part in informal conversations about the future, according to two senior White House officials not authorized to speak publicly about private conversations.

Trump, he said, is a "total opportunist" with "no political ideology" - the kind of politician whose thirst for adulation might, under certain circumstances, lead to his signing, or even championing, just about anything. He pointed to severalpolls that suggest Republican attack ads featuring Pelosi did not motivate voters in the midterm elections. Those potentially include Rep. Jerrold Nadler of NY atop the Judiciary Committee and Elijah Cummings of Maryland, incoming chairman of the Oversight and Government Reform Committee.
He and Pelosi, the Kentucky senator said, are "not unfamiliar" with one another as longtime leaders and colleagues. Furthermore, 22 states had never elected a female governor and only four out 50 governors are women. But substitute Trump for James and, say, Elizabeth Warren or Kamela Harris for Stabenow, and it's anyone's guess who would win in MI.
"We did this in spite of a very dramatic fundraising disadvantage driven by Democrats' wealthy donors and special interests and very hostile media coverage, to put it mildly", Trump said at the White House on November 7. Their first order of business as the House majority will be to decide whether to put the speaker's gavel back in Pelosi's hands.
Trump called the party's performance "very close to complete victory" and told reporters at the White House that he would rather see Democrats with a slim majority in the House, since Republicans would be blamed if they failed to convert a slight lead into legislative success.
