The midterm elections are upon us and there seems to be a large shift away from the direction that Donald Trump has taken this country. According to a recent CBS News-YouGov poll the Democrats have a very high probability of taking over the House of Representatives.

From CBS News:

The latest CBS News-YouGov House Model estimates a Democratic majority in the House of Representatives, with the party on 224 seats to the Republicans’ 211. With a margin of error of 12 seats, however, this means that control of the House is within reach of either party.

In terms of the national vote, the Democrats are currently estimated to win 52.1% of ballots cast compared to 43.7% for the Republicans and 4.1% for other parties and candidates.
