US votes against Democrats, Republicans take House

Washington: Dealing a body blow to President Barack Obama, US voters frustrated over his economic policies today delivered a stunning defeat to his Democratic Party handing control of the House of Representatives to opposition Republicans, who also made big gains in the powerful Senate.

Days before his maiden visit to India, Obama tasted defeat at the the US mid-term polls, seen as a referendum on his economic policies, that had promised recovery to the recession-hit American economy.

The Democrats managed to maintain their hold in the Senate but with reduced majority.

Millions of Americans voted yesterday for all the 435 seats in the House of Representatives; 37 of the 100 Senate seats, 37 State Governors, besides a large number of State and local elections.
