"Listen, if Hillary had won, I'd be jubilant to go home", Pelosi said.

"The big picture is that midterm elections go against the president's party", noted John Fortier of the Bipartisan Policy Center in Washington.

"The survival of the country is going to depend on this election", he said as another man stopped for a moment to argue. "I wouldn't say it's as important as '16, but it's right up there". "He's not on the ticket".

The Senate and the House of Representatives make up the upper and lower chambers of Congress, which is the legislative branch of the federal government, and is responsible for making laws. A Trump triumphant will find it hard to resist the urge to bring in lieutenants who think more like him.

After a Trump rally in September in Springfield, Missouri, pro-Trump activist Brenda Webb, 64, sat for a late dinner at a restaurant with five friends who had driven to the rally from the St. Louis suburbs. The next day, another gunman opened fire in a synagogue in Pittsburgh, massacring 11 worshippers and telling police "all these Jews need to die".

Senator Heidi Heitkamp, who is facing re-election in a state Mr Trump won by almost 40 points in 2016, is considered the most endangered Democrat in the Senate.

"He has diarrhea of the mouth and diarrhea of the brain". Assemblywoman Deborah Glick has represented the 66th Assembly district since 1990, and Nixon has made it clear she's not actually seeking the seat, but her name recognition could still net her a number of votes.

Still, his xenophobic rhetoric has been unprecedented for an American president in the modern era: "Barbed wire used properly can be a handsome sight", Trump told voters in Montana. "I think there's going to be a big backlash against Republicans because of this divisiveness".

"Regardless of whether you agree with their political positions, Abrams and Gillum represent candidates who have extensive experience in public service, impressive educational backgrounds, and can point to track records of accomplishment under their leadership", says Celeste Watkins-Hayes, professor of sociology and African American studies at the Institute for Policy Research at Northwestern University and a friend of Abrams, tells TIME in an email.

Some Republicans worry that Trump's focus on racial identity politics so close to the election is undercutting their message to swing voters on subjects like the economy and health care. For the immigration hard-liners inside the Trump administration, it's all good.

It's midterm election eve, and we're in a somewhat similar situation to where we were in 2016. However, Trump walked away with the victory against all odds.




"It could happen", Trump said Friday about losing the House.

As Americans participated in early voting this weekend, that same anxiety was palpable among some voters. The crowd responded with the chant, "Lock her up!"

"By the way, these aren't babies", Trump said in Pensacola, Florida on November 3. "They didn't come trying to storm the border".

The 101st Assembly District has a Republican voter enrollment advantage, but Democratic challenger Chad McEvoy has declared that if he beats Assemblyman Brian Miller, he will redraw it to have fairer representation of political parties.

Panelo, the son of a Mexican immigrant, said migrants shouldn't be demonized, but he stopped short of criticizing the president, and plans to vote for Republican candidates who could help push Trump's agenda. I would like to have a much softer tone.

BUY ANY DOLLAR DIP If the greenback drops against other currencies on the election result, Citigroup says it should be bought. Young people, who historically sit out of midterm elections, and women are both expected to be pivotal forces Tuesday.

"Trump has hijacked the election".

This year, history is on Democrats' side. I watched numerous TV "analysis" shows so you didn't have to, and have come to the conclusion that the outcome of Tuesday's election for control of Congress will be a nail-biter.

The nationwide vote on Tuesday is being seen as a referendum on his presidency.

"It's all fragile. Everything I told you about, it can be undone and changed..." he warned his base Monday. That is up 67.8 per cent from the 20.5 million early votes cast in all of 2014, the last federal election when the White House was not at stake.
