Poll: Will you follow the results of the US midterm elections?

Two years of a Trump presidency have heightened divisions between Republicans and Democrats.

THE OLD SAYING goes, ‘When America sneezes, the world catches a cold.’

There’s a huge amount of international interest in the US midterm elections, which are taking place today. Two years of a Trump presidency have heightened divisions between Republicans and Democrats.

The entire 435-member House of Representatives and 35 seats of the 100-seat Senate are up for grabs. Currently, Republicans have a majority in both houses and the biggest midterm question is whether they will continue to hold that advantage after today.

Trump’s approval rating is at 39%, according to a recent opinion poll, with Democrats hoping to capitalise on this and make up ground.
