Election 2016: Republicans retain House and Senate
The Republican Party has kept its hold over Congress, capping a dire night for the Democrats. With Donald Trump elected as the next president, the Republicans retained their majorities in the House and Senate.

The night began with majority control of the Senate up for grabs, with 34 of the 100 seat...

The latest opinion po...
