Senate majority could shift after midterm elections
The balance of power in Washington could be shifting after today's midterm election, directly impacting the agenda for the final two years of the Obama administration.
Democrats currently control the Senate, and Republicans need to gain six seats to capture the majority.
The Democrats are hoping they'll be able to protect President Barack Obama's accomplishments, including his signature health care reform act. They're also pushing several policies, such as expanding the minimum wage and equal pay for women.
A recent CNN/ORC poll found that 30 percent of Americans are "very angry" and 38 percent are "somewhat angry" about the way things are going in the capitol.
As with most midterm votes, the outcome will be just as much about shaping the presidential contest two years from now as it is about the immediate future.
