Jubilant Democrats across America are declaring that their big election victories in Virginia and New Jersey – their first of the young Trump era – mark the beginning of an anti-Trump surge that could re-shape the balance of power in Congress in 2018 .Whether the president's party delivers or not, there is clear cause for concern for a Republican Party that would lose its House majority if Democrats gained 24 seats next fall.Republican National Committee Chair Ronna Romney McDaniel had a different view from Trump's.As for Tuesday's longer-term significance for the Democrats, both parties' leaders know that much can change in the year before voters decide the 2018 midterm elections. And Republicans enjoy a redistricting advantage that limits the number of truly competitive House races, thanks in large part to GOP routs during Barack Obama's eight years in office.Republican Party leaders also expect their political outlook to improve dramatically once the GOP-led Congress takes action on taxes or health care.The results were particularly troubling for Republicans serving in suburban districts in states Trump lost last fall.
