This Tuesday, November 8, the first day of midterm elections in the United States proceeded without clear winners, while the fight for Congress and governance continues on the national map. Elections are closed in most states, but definitive battleground states such as Georgia and Pennsylvania have yet to be defined.
Election day, which will set the course for the Joe Biden presidency and possibly the 2024 presidential election, began at 6 a.m. in the eastern states.
Thus began an uphill struggle between Democrats and Republicans with multiple war scenarios and both parties fighting to emerge victorious in the Senate, in the House of Representatives, and in the governance of the country.
In the elections, a new congressional structure was at stake, as during the day they voted to renew the entire House of Representatives and more than a third of the Senate. The so-called ‘midterm’ is considered an election thermometer and a way to “evaluate” the work done by current President Joe Biden.
The first results to come were predictable. By 11 p.m., Republicans had held 13 of the 35 Senate seats. While the Democrats had established their dominance in seven states. However, in some parts of the US territory, voting had not yet closed or counting was about to begin. Thus, the results gave a total of 43 seats in the Senate to the Democrats and 44 to the Republicans, taking into account positions that were not disputed in these elections.
