Democrats Will Likely Reclaim Control Of The House Of Representatives

VIDEO Attacking the vote how American votes can be hacked

Americans who are happy with the country under President Donald Trump must go out and vote for Republicans, because "that's the only way we are going to see progress continue in this country", his daughter-in-law and campaign adviser Lara Trump said Tuesday.

Analysts at Rabobank suggest that Americans will cast their crucial votes in today's mid-term elections, which for many will be a referendum on Trump's presidency.

But former President Barack Obama was among those who directly targeted Trump and his personal style and beliefs, saying at one point "the character of the country is on the ballot".

The race for control of the General Assembly is shaping up, and it seems Democrats are poised to break the Republican super majority in the House.

Republicans flipped several Senate seats on Tuesday, with wins by Josh Hawley over Sen.

In suburban Virginia, Democrat Jennifer Wexton ousted incumbent Republican Barbara Comstock, while another Democrat, Donna Shalala, seized a Republican district in Florida.

Meanwhile, Sen. Ted Cruz fended off a spirited challenge from Democratic Rep. Beto O'Rourke, and Republican Sen. Trump won Texas with more than 52% of the vote in 2016.

Republicans do not have to defend as many vulnerable incumbents as Democrats in the midterms.

Hitting three states in one day, with a final late rally in Cape Girardeau, Missouri, Trump hammered home his boast that "the Republican agenda is the American dream".

The former president campaigned in recent days in Florida, Georgia, Indiana and IL for a slate of Democrats running in key Senate and gubernatorial races.

By failing to pick up the two seats needed, it's unclear whether the Democratic caucus's leadership ranks will change at all. Campaigns unfolded against a backdrop of jarring political imagery, overheated rhetoric and angry debates on immigration, health care and the role of Congress in overseeing the president.

Americans are voting for all 435 seats in the House and 35 out of 100 seats in the Senate, a as well as state governors.

Trump said in an interview with Sinclair Broadcasting on Monday that he wished he had a softer tone during his first two years in office - even as he continued his relentless attacks on political rivals.

"It could happen", President Trump acknowledged this past Friday evening about losing the lower chamber, echoing the same sentiments many strategists and lawmakers have been forecasting for the past year.

Of course, Democrats have been in this position before: Two years ago, polling indicated that Hillary Clinton was more likely become the next President of the United States, and she fell short in a night that shocked the country.

White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders said Trump planned to spend Election Day making phone calls and monitoring the races from the White House, and would watch the results later with family and friends.

Trump has headlined 30 rallies in two months and packed out arenas of adoring fans. With the first polls not slated to close until 6 P.M. eastern, polling was the only indicators both parties had on Tuesday of their prospects.

Interested in Midterm Elections? Much of that has gone to boost turnout among younger voters, although he has produced a nationwide advertising campaign calling for Trump's impeachment. "Do not let their scare tactics frighten you away from the polls".

Mr Manchin was the only member of his party to vote to confirm Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, whose nomination narrowly survived sexual assault claims.

Now we're getting to the some of the nation's marquee races: the initial returns from the Texas US Senate race, plus four competitive US House races in New Jersey and another eight in Pennsylvania.

"I am extremely happy with the economy", Gerlock said. Moreover, 56 percent of those surveyed thought the country was on the wrong track and 41 percent said it was on the right track.

A nationwide poll released Sunday by NBC News and The Wall Street Journal details the depth of the demographic shifts. "If you want strong borders and safe communities vote for Republicans". His campaign team created an advertisement focused on the caravan that was so racially charged that major TV networks pulled it. Yet it may be effective in largely rural states where he remains popular and where numerous closest Senate races are playing out.

The campaign will be the most expensive midterm in history, projected by the nonpartisan Center for Responsive Politics to exceed $5 billion.

Democrats boasted record diversity on ballots.

Mr Trump's party is projected to hold on to the upper chamber in Congress, where they now hold a slim 51-49 majority.
