The US president has said that he and his party took a "shellacking" - meaning a very sound beating - in the US midterm polls.
Speaking on Wednesday, Barack Obama could barely contain his disappointment. His Democrat party has lost control of the lower House of Representatives, winning 185 seats to the Republicans' 239, with 11 seats still to be decided.
The Democrats only narrowly held onto their majority in the Senate. They have at least 51 seats out of 100, and the Republicans 46. Two remain undecided.
