Riding on an insurgence of liberal activism spearheaded by groups like Indivisible and Swing Left that began shortly after the 2016 presidential election, Democrats ushered in the biggest net gains in the U.S. House of Representatives in a generation. While a few races are still outstanding, Democrats are poised to gain 38 seats in the U.S. House, delivering a devastating blow to Donald Trump in what was a clear referendum on his presidency.

Running largely on a platform of protecting and expanding healthcare and gun control legislation, Democrats have won agenda-setting power, the ability to investigate and subpoena the Trump Administration, and ultimately the ability to serve as a check on this president and his cronies.
