The 2018 congressional midterm elections, which began shortly after U.S. President Donald Trump was projected as the winner of the 2016 elections, are finally over. They shattered all turnout records for midterms, as an estimated 114 million Americans voted, and drew global attention comparable to most presidential campaigns.The days before the election were punctuated by letter bombs targeting high-profile opponents of the president and the deadly attack at a Pittsburgh synagogue, the worst act of anti-Semitic violence in American history. Given all this, perhaps the strangest thing about these midterm elections is how normal they were at least with regards to the results.For many Democrats this midterm was, at its heart, a battle for American democracy. The Democrats were clear winners on Nov. 6, as the party that does not control the presidency has been in almost every midterm election since Franklin Delano Roosevelt was in the White House in 1934 .The Democrats will pick up around 30 seats in the House and probably lose only two or three Senate seats in the face of a very tough map, but relative to most other recent midterm elections this hardly constitutes a wave.
