In most cases, During the second term, the party that controls the White house, lost the overwhelming majority in both houses of Congress." The American people usually get tired of the President and his party to the sixth year of his term, " said Covington.

As for domestic policy, then the specialist set up pretty optimistic." according to tradition, will prognoziruyut dead, But certain important reforms were carried out During the presidency of Democrat bill Clinton, when in Congress were Republicans. So I would strongly Not surprised if there is some sort of political development, most in 2015, " said Covington.
