What do US mid-term results mean for Obama?
Republicans took six Senate seats from the Democrats, including wins for favourites from the Tea Party movement, but they fell short of victory.
However, possession of the House sets them up to block Obama initiatives.
John Boehner, likely to become the next Speaker, vowed to cut spending and reduce the size of government.
Are you in the US? What do you think of the results? What next for Mr Obama, the Democratic party, and the Republicans after these results?
