If the Democrats win one chamber or both, Klain says, then Congress returns to being a check and balance on the president.
OneNewsNow.com will provide up-to-date election coverage Tuesday night after voters have their say in the nation's pivotal midterm elections.
The extraordinary United States midterm election has been a tug of war over key issues, but none has had a more dramatic impact on voters than Donald Trump, the man who isn't even on the ballot.
"Everything matters and everything's at stake", Schriock said.
White House aides have discussed floating popular legislative issues, such as infrastructure, to tempt Democrats and test the unity of the Democratic opposition.
The nationwide vote on Tuesday is being seen as a referendum on his presidency. "We can even include some surprising Democratic wins". "It's all fragile", he said on the call.
So what can we expect if the Democrats do win the House? They promised hardline immigration policies and more tax cuts, arguing that Democrats would erase two years of progress.
There's a good reason Mr Trump wants his most loyal supporters heading out to vote.
Asked if he was concerned Democrats would force the release of his taxes, Trump replied: 'No, I don't care.
The political realignment, if it solidifies, could reshape U.S. politics for a generation.
In Ohio, Republican National Committee spokeswoman Mandi Merritt referred to pro-Trump enthusiasts as a "grassroots army" that could be harnessed and dispatched to boost Republican voter turnout.

"One election won't eliminate racism, sexism or homophobia", Obama said during an appearance in Florida.
'I don't think that's going to happen, ' he predicted. "But it'll be a start". Immediately, talk would turn to how the 2016 election was perhaps a fluke and to how Trump's divisiveness had backfired.

As a result, Bloomberg's team poured money into otherwise overlooked suburban districts in states like Georgia, Washington state and Oklahoma because data revealed voters there were better-educated. If the Democrats can increase the number they hold, it will offer them more opportunities to frustrate Trump's agenda outside Washington.

(He has already done this to some degree, even though Democrats have no control over any branch of government.) Trump has fulfilled some promises, but key ones and far-fetched ones such as the border wall (not to mention making Mexico pay for it) remain improbable even if Republicans keep control of the House and Senate.
The president's closing argument to voters was on stark display Sunday as he seeks to motivate complacent Republican voters to the polls by stoking fears about the prospects of Democratic control.
