Midterms 2018

7 November 2018

Last night the midterms were held in the United States! With record turnout figures, a Democrat majority in the House of Representatives for the first time in eight years, and more Republican senators today than yesterday: it was not quite the huge blue wave some expected, but some fascinating results nonetheless. America remains largely blue around the edges, red in the middle, and as divided as ever. TCS Telly spent the night at the Union, chatting to students about their predictions and analysing the outcome bright and early this morning! Not every result has been called yet, but Trump is still content to refer to the elections as “a tremendous success”… we’ll see what Cambridge makes of that!
