2018 could be known as the vote of the 'ticked off'

We Will Keep Congress. Here's Why

Voting began on Tuesday in the crucial midterm elections in the U.S. which could be seen as a referendum on President Donald Trump's controversial policies and the outcome would determine the next two years of his presidency. (She is now the ranking member of the House Financial Services Committee and could become chairwoman after the election.) He has previously referred to her as a "low-IQ individual" and at events the weekend before the midterm election sarcastically called her "legendary" and "genius".

It makes these midterm elections extremely hard to predict.

The entire 435-member House of Representatives and a third of the 100-seat Senate are up for grabs.

Republicans already hold the house in the Senate.

This year the two groups combined have turned out 38 percent of the vote, far lower than the overall county average.

Georgia - Many will also be watching the race for governor in the southern state of Georgia. Five of those seven seats were also held by Republicans.

While the economy continues to thrive, Trump has spent much of the campaign's final days railing against a caravan of Latin American immigrants hoping to seek asylum at the USA border. The results could shift the balance of power in Washington and alter the next two years of Trump's presidency.

Sanders, a United States (US) senator from liberal Vermont, is expected to win re-election easily in Tuesday's congressional elections, so he took little political risk in bashing the president.

So far, there have been no signs that Russian Federation or any other foreign agency has tried to launch cyber-attacks against voting systems in any state, according to federal authorities.

"This is a very important election", he added.

"The character of our country is on the ballot", former president Barack Obama said on Twitter on Monday.

Moreover, the visitors have been bolstered by the return of Keiron Pollard, Darren Bravo, Andre Russel and Carlos Brathwaite . However, Brathwaite said there was no shame in being labelled underdogs, especially against a strong side home-side.

However, a surprise entry in the foldable phone game is LG, which plans on showing off their own next-gen device in January. It is expected to not sport a fingerprint scanner, due to technical difficulties unique to its flexible screen.

"I think he changed the election so that now it's a verdict, yes, on him and his performance in office, but more on what he stands for and how he's trying to move American politics from a less pragmatic perspective to these issues of identity", Moran said.

With the Republican Party and President Donald Trump in control of both the Senate and the House; they have until now enjoyed the full support of Congress. This will leave President Trump unable to pass key laws through the houses.

Democrats would need all five of those races to go their way presuming they hold the seats they're expected to, plus pick up a seat in a longshot like Texas or Tennessee or MS to claim a majority.

How close are the elections going to be?

"Under the expectation that Republican voters typically are more likely to turn out, can Democrats energize people who identify with the Democratic Party to turn out and vote for their candidates?" The Blue seek to regain control of Senate and House, while the Red are set to expand their narrow majority. It'll all work out but I don't think that's going to happen'. The new congressional term begins in January 2019.

In Michigan, Rashida Tlaib could become the first Muslim woman and first Palestinian-American in Congress.

Three states could elect their first African-American governors, while several others are running LGBT candidates and Muslims.

Rep. Barbara Comstock in the Virginia suburbs outside the nation's capital was among the most endangered Republican incumbents, branded Barbara "Trumpstock" by Democrats. Republican Gov. Charlie Baker appears to be headed for an easy re-election win in deep blue MA, possibly besting the 71 percent vote total that former Gov. William F. Weld garnered in 1994.

But the first thing to remember is that while Trump's ascent to the presidency in 2016 was certainly a surprise, the polls were not, in fact, wildly inaccurate.

An IPSO poll conducted ahead of the mid-terms found "investigating and potentially impeaching" Trump was the number one priority for Democratic voters.
