Majority of Americans say Democrats will retake control of both House and Senate in the 2018 midterm elections

A majority of Americans say Democrats will not only regain control of the House in the 2018 midterm elections, but they will retake the Senate as well, according to a new poll by Politico/Morning Consult released today.

45 percent of Americans say it's very likely Democrats will take back the House in the 2018 midterm elections, while 38 percent of Americans say Democrats will not regain control of the House in 2018.

The poll also found that 46 percent of Americans say it's very likely Democrats will retake control of the Senate in 2018, compared with 38 percent who say the opposite.

Donald Trump's low approval ratings have made Democrats increasingly optimistic they can pick up the seats they need to win back the House.
