We now know that the Democrats will have a substantial majority in the House in the 116th Congress, and the Republicans will retain a small majority in the Senate. Even with a Republican still in the White House, right-wing control over government has been effectively ended.
What does the public think about the election results? By an 18 point margin, adults are happy about the outcome (and the margin rises to 24 points among registered voters). Adults are also happy that Democrats will control the House of Representatives by a 13 point margin (and registered voters by a 12 point margin).
The only thing they are not happy about is the Republicans continuing control of the Senate. Adults by a 4 point margin (and registered voters by a 7 point margin) are unhappy at that result.
These charts reflect the results of the newest Economist / YouGov Poll -- done between November 11th and 13th of a national sample of 1,500 adults (including 1,284 registered voters), with a 3 point margin of error for adults and a 2.9 point margin of error for registered voters.
