US mid-term election results 2018

"That's what the American voters are going to deliver their verdict on".

However, thunderstorms are forecast for Tuesday along the eastern coast, as well as snowstorms in the Midwest, which could affect turnout.

Democrat Andrew Gillum would achieve a milestone if elected in Florida too, against Trump supporter Ron DeSantis.

GOP Whip Steve Scalise said the president's rallies were building momentum and with the economy a selling point, he predicted his party would retain a slim majority. He added: "The Democrat agenda is a socialist nightmare".

Trump echoed what he's been saying for weeks as he stumps for Republican candidates for the House, Senate and governor's mansions: Democrats will throw America in reverse.

Midterm elections in the U.S. generally garner far less attention than the presidential ones, but this year, not surprisingly, the situation is different as there is a lot at stake for both parties. "It's an awakening of the Democratic Party".

Democrats could derail Trump's legislative agenda for the next two years should they win control of the House or the Senate.

Critics, including members of Trump's own party, have condemned the commercial as racially divisive.

In Chattanooga, Tennessee, to bolster the prospects of Republican Senate candidate Marsha Blackburn, Trump once again warned that caravans of illegal immigrants are on their way to flood across the southern border.

Through the middle of October, Federal Election Commission (FEC) campaign filings disclosed that $4.7 billion had already been spent on the 2018 midterms, and spending was on track to hit $5.2 billion by November 6. Polling suggests the Republican coalition is increasingly older, whiter, more male and less likely to have a college degree. He's a military veteran who prides himself on not being a career politician. "They could only go up. but we don't know where these ballots are going". He covers US politics and current affairs. The demographic shifts also reflect each party's closing argument.

There are around 250 million Americans who are eligible to vote, but turnout in midterm elections is typically about 40%. Maybe back in '16 during the presidential, right around the vote.

"Health care is on the ballot", former President Barack Obama told Democratic volunteers in Virginia. "But if there's any issue that hits people directly and you can get away with not being about Trump, it's healthcare".

Tuesday's results will be colored by the dramatically different landscapes in the fight for the House and Senate. If Trump manages to pull off a victory in terms of retaining control of one or both Houses, it will be seen as a validation of his stand that poor migrants and refugees from other countries are a threat to the peaceful life of the American people and send out a clear message to the world on what the original "country of migrants" now thinks on that issue.

"The question is whether the Democrats win control of the House by 10, 20 seats or more", veteran pollster Peter Hart told Fairfax Media.

"I'm not pleased with Trump's leadership at all". "I think he's preying upon people's fears".

"That's an invasion. I don't care what they say", Trump said to cheers. "I don't think Trump has done that at all".

"In a certain way, I am on the ballot", Trump said in a conference call Monday with his supporters.

Unusual events which have dominated national attention, such as the contentious confirmation of Justice Kavanaugh, have allowed Trump to reframe the election, Moran said. Republicans hope he can help GOP Rep. Mia Love over the line in her toss-up race in the 4th District. "That's why our economy is growing like it is. It's a sign of their ineffectiveness that they're afraid to do it", said Ed Mattos (70) of Rockville, Maryland, who attended the Sanders rally.

"For the past two years, we've watched this administration attack and undermine our democratic institutions and values", Clinton said.

They face a far more hard challenge in the Senate, where they are nearly exclusively on defence in rural states where Trump remains popular. This is particularly true of the Senate, where each state has two seats regardless of population. Twenty-six of the 35 Senate seats at stake are held by Democrats and nine are held by Republicans.

Given Trump's stunning victory in 2016, few were confident in their predictions.

"In one corner would be the class warfare Sanders wing, and in another would be the intersectional, social issues left, and in a third would be the establishment Liberals", Baer said.
