Divided America to cast midterm verdict on Trump's Presidency

Obama No one in my administration got indicted

For nearly two years, US President Donald Trump's rule-breaking, sometimes chaotic administration has enjoyed a largely free hand from the twin Republican-controlled chambers, but the midterms could finally see his wings clipped.

President Trump will breathe a sigh of relief if his party maintains its majority in the Senate, but losing control of the House of Representatives could create big problems for him.

Excitement is abound south of the border as Americans get set to elect new members to the Republican-controlled House of Representatives and Senate on Tuesday. "Some report literal nightmares about a Democratic wipeout".

If you want to veer away from all the talking heads and go straight for the numbers ahead of polls, you can find a longlist of individual polls here or generic poll-of-polls for the House here and a similar curation for the Senate here.

But with turnout a key unknown factor and pollsters still unsure about the effect of Trump's maverick style on voters, both parties admit that they may be in for nasty surprises. Republicans are now behind by 8.5 percent. But Democrats are widely favored to win the 23 seats they need to assume control of the House of Representatives.

With massive turnout from early voters, the Texas senate election is going to be a big one - and if it goes Democrats' way, a nightmare for Republicans.

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

"I don't feel despair", she said.

"Law Enforcement has been strongly notified to watch closely for any ILLEGAL VOTING which may take place in Tuesday's Election (or Early Voting)", he wrote on Twitter.

President Donald Trump embarked on Monday on a whirlwind final push across three states to stop Democrats from breaking his Republicans' stranglehold on the US Congress in midterm elections amounting to a battle for the soul of the turbulent country. But she sees a chance for Democrats to render their judgment on the president by pushing his party out of power in a different branch of government.

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

But in the first midterm under Trump - an utterly unconventional president - there are many unknowns, above all the bottom-line impact of a president who has driven both supporters and foes to a rare fever pitch of emotion.

Democrats during the 2016 demanded Trump release his tax returns.

Not this year. These are the most consequential midterms for years. And among white men without college degrees, Republicans led 65 per cent to 30 per cent.

Democrats boast record diversity on the ballot.

In the upper chamber, . the Senate, there are 100 seats, with each state getting two, regardless of population. If Democrats win the House, Trump will have a ready-made foil for his 2020 re-election campaign, even if his Democratic opponent is not such a lightning rod.

"If you look back through the last 50 or 60 years of U.S. history, if you are an incumbent President, the chances are you will be re-elected and there is a strong pattern of the United States two terms for one party, two terms for the other".

The political realignment, if it solidifies, could reshape United States politics for a generation. The demographic shifts also reflect each party's closing argument.

Monday will be a barnstormer for Trump, who will make stops in OH and in before a final campaign pitch in Missouri, where he is trying to knock Democratic Senator Claire McCaskill out of office. He dispatched more than 5,000 troops to the region, suggesting soldiers would use lethal force against migrants who throw rocks, before later reversing himself. Maybe back in '16 during the presidential, right around the vote.

Democrats, meanwhile, have beat their drum on health care.

Some 34.3 million people have already voted and the real number is probably higher, according to the US Elections Project, a University of Florida-based information source.

"Trump's not on the ballot, but he is on the ballot", he said at a phone-bank event to get out the vote at the local Republican headquarters. Elizabeth Warren look to launch their campaigns to unseat President Trump.
