Well, he’s back. Now that the big question of the day has been answered, it’s time to think about whether Barack Obama’s second term is likely to be any more harmonious than his first. Will it be plagued by the same legislative gridlock that has characterised the last two years, or will the President find himself with a more co-operative Congress?

One thought on “Congress: more gridlock on the cards, House and Senate split

    In later Senate counting, the Democrats have indeed scored an upset by retaining Montana, the Republicans are hanging on narrowly in Nevada, and most surprisingly the Democrats have maintained their wafer-thin lead in North Dakota. So it’s looking like 55-45, but could still be one either side of that.
