The GOP is Back on Top in the U.S. House of Representatives


Republicans are now projected to win back control of the U.S. House with a narrow majority, likely dealing a blow to President Biden and his agenda. However, Democrats did better than predicted and so there will be constraints on the power of the new GOP majority.


The Democrats’ show of strength in last week’s elections enabled them to maintain a majority in the Senate and come up just short of a historic upset in the House. That creates a split Congress and left Republicans in both chambers battling over who was to blame and who should lead the party going forward.


Having the Republicans in control of the House is sure to complicate the second half of President Joe Biden’s term, as the GOP gains the ability to launch investigations and block legislation.
