The Republicans seem to have a narrow majority in the U.S. House of Representatives. That is one of the preliminary conclusions now that the results of the US midterm elections (midterms) are trickling in. A Republican mega-wave does not seem to be in it. In the battle for the Senate, there is even a welcome windfall for the Democrats of president Joe Biden.

All 435 seats in the House of Representatives are up for grabs. The Senate has 35 out of a total of 100 seats.

In both cases, the Democrats defend a majority. But Republicans already have enough of one additional seat in the Senate to get the majority. There is no decision yet in that battle, in which the swing states make the difference.

In the battle for the Senate, the Democrats in Pennsylvania seem to have made a first win. Their candidate John Fetterman has been declared the winner by Fox News, New York Times, MSNBC and CNN with a slight difference in the fight against Republican Mehmet Oz.

In doing so, the Democrats would take over a Republican seat, forcing that party to take over two seats elsewhere to ensure a power shift.
