The midterm elections 2018 have broken multiple records including historic levels of women and ethnic minority groups entering public office.
Although official figures have yet to be revealed, the New York Times predicts the final number of cast votes to be 114million, compared to 83million in 2014.
And the big talking point was the Democrats’ win in the House of Representatives, enabling them to cause havoc with President Trump’s presidency over the next two years.
Enthusiastic voters, caught on a wave of reform, are now debating what will happen when Mr Trump is challenged for the top job.
So, when are the next US elections?
The next elections in the United States will be in 2020, when the 59th quadrennial US presidential election takes place.
The date has already been set for November 3, 2020.
Mr Trump says he will be seeking a further four years in office for a second term.
Today, in a surprise exchange at a White House press conference it was revealed Vice President Mike Pence would be Mr Trump’s running mate for 2020.
In front of reporters, Mr Trump asked: “Mike, will you be my running mate?”
After hearing the response, Mr Trump said: ”The answer is yes. That was unexpected but I feel very fine.”
Who will challenge Donald Trump from the Democrats?
No official names are on the ticket just yet from the Democrats for the 2020 presidential elections.
But that has not stopped the bookmakers from making its predictions.
Coral has made Democratic California Senator Kamala Harris an early favourite, with odds of 5-1.
Coral’s Harry Aitkenhead said: ”Whilst the midterm results aren’t too surprising, with the party that is not in the White House usually the one to make the gains, it’s still a blow to Trump.
“We now make the Democrats the favourites to repeat the success and go on to win the 2020 Election.”
In second place is Beto O’Rourke, with 6-1 odds, who narrowly lost out in the Senate race in Texas to Republican Ted Cruz.
Twitter actress Alyssa Milano wrote shortly after the election results” “Beto lost? That’s ok. Now he can run for President.”
She added “#Beto2020.” shortly afterwards.
Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren has 6-1 odds, while Oprah Winfrey is on 20-1.
