November 8 -- As voters head to the polls Tuesday, one outcome is already a near-certainty: A dysfunctional U.S. Congress is going to get even more unworkable, particularly if Hillary Clinton wins the White House. Whichever party wins control of the Senate is likely to claim power by the slimmest of majorities, making the 60-vote margin needed to advance legislation more elusive. Republicans are expected to keep the House, but they too will have a smaller majority, giving more leverage to a group of ultra-conservatives who have pushed to shut down the government in the past.
