After Elections, the House of Representatives has a Democratic majority. Democrats have 252 projected seats, while Republicans have 172. A party needs 218 for a majority.
The Democratic Party has also retained power in the Senate. Currently, they don't have the 60 seats needed to have the majority because there are still four seats undecided Wednesday morning. However, if all four seats go Democratic, Democrats will gain the majority.
Coming into the election, the Democrats had a slim majority, 51 to 49.
