There are 435 members in the House. Democrats have a majority in the House of Representatives with 222 House seats and for controlling or winning the House, 218 House seats are required so it is safe to say that Democrats have a majority in the House Of Representatives.

How does the US election work:

The US election works with a system called electoral college votes to decide a winner.

Every state of the United States including Washington DC has given several electoral college votes. The number of electoral college votes is decided based on the population of the state. The more populous states, the more number of electoral votes.

Because of this rule, the candidate can win the election without getting more votes all over the country. If the person has the highest votes all over the country but has less than 270 electoral college votes, then he will not become the president of the United States.

This has happened in the last election in which Henry Clinton has more votes than Donald Trump at a national level but Donald Trump has more electoral college votes than Henry Clinton. So, he has become the president of the United States.
