دليل مبسط للانتخابات النصفية في الولايات المتحدة

November 6, 2018 -- Americans head to the polls to decide which party controls the two chambers of Congress and has the power to oversee President Donald Trump and his administration.

All 435 seats in the House of Representatives are up for election. If the Democrats want to take control of the House, they will have to win at least 23 seats from the Republicans.

For the Senate, just 35 out of the 100 seats are being contested. The Democrats need two seats to take control.

However, while Democrats may be able to take the House, clinching the Senate will be much harder. With only nine seats to defend, the Republicans have big advantage over the Democrats because the Democratic party is defending 26 seats (including two independents, who usually vote with them) while the Republicans only have to defend nine.

The stakes for President Donald Trump are extremely high since a Democratic victory in either chamber would give the party the power to open investigations into various aspects of his administration.


NEW GRAPHIC NEWS - a new website for a new era.

28 years ago — April 2, 1991 — the original Graphic News launched using a precursor to today’s websites that used email technology. These enabled infographics to be delivered electronically around the world over telephone lines. What was possible was very limited - It took 10 minutes for a 100K file to download.

Since then delivery speeds and website technology have moved on. The new website will offer the best online experience possible now, adding many new features (and offering new opportunities for the future), but still enabling existing users to select and download infographics and enjoy the distinct brand of visual journalism that is Graphic News.


Over the coming weeks I will give further information. Please contact me if you have any questions. Fiona Roberts, froberts @ graphicnews.com
