On Tuesday after the first Monday of November, American citizens decided who will be their representatives in the House of Representatives in the next two years, and which political option will fill 1/3 of the Senate. As the results of the midterm show, the activity of Obama's administration has brought about 'changes,' but the effects of these changes are not exactly after Democrats' minds, because instead of bringing Democrats victory at midterm, it was a warning sign for the White House that many Americans might not be satisfied with domestic policy and proposed reforms. The main aim of this article is to present changes that have taken place in the United States not only from a political perspective but also a personal one. The second aim is to answer the question whether the November elections bring about real change in the circles of the ruling elites, or just displace the opposition party with the ruling one, and vice versa.
