President Trump Makes His Final Pitch: It's Time to Vote Republican

Others, like former MA governor Deval Patrick, California Senator Kamala Harris and former vice president Joe Biden, have been a little more active.

Mid-term elections are often seen as a referendum on the president and there is no shortage of opinions this time around about the current occupant of the White House. Kirsten Gillibrand and New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo. Florida has the longest coastline in the United States, but Florida's Republican candidate for governor, Mr Ron DeSantis, is a climate sceptic. One polling station in Arlington still had a line past 9:00 a.m. - a time when many people would need to already be at work. If Democrats can flip either or both of the 2nd or 7th Congressional District races in Virginia, those could also be signs of a big night for Democrats.

These elections are known as midterms when they fall outside the four-year presidential election cycle.

Carlos Gallinar, an El Paso resident, said he planned to vote for O'Rourke because of "the negative energy coming out of Washington and this president". This is to say nothing of all the things - violence, hatred, anxiety, long-term negative economic trends - for which politicians have some responsibility but about which no one much expected them to do anything.

Two races which are of particular interest are Georgia, where Democrat Stacey Abrams is seeking to become the first black woman to become governor of a U.S. state, and Florida, where Democrat Andrew Gillum is locked in a bitter battle with Republican and Trump acolyte Ron DeSantis.

Trump wants voters to "think the Democrats are all about impeachment, investigation, caravans, 'scaravans, '" she said.

"The president absolutely is the focal point". Both Barack Obama's and Bill Clinton's numbers were 5 points higher, and both suffered major midterm losses of 63 and 54 House seats respectively. If the Democrats have to gain control, they have to win 40 seats more than what they did in the last mid-term poll in 2014. He covers US politics and current affairs.

It includes 35 senator positions and 36 state governors as well as all 435 members of the House of Representatives.

Trump spent Tuesday at the White House, tweeting, making calls, monitoring the races and meeting with his political team. First among them would be a potentially bitter leadership fight in the House to replace retiring Speaker Paul Ryan.

Opposition Democrats hope to seize at least partial control of Congress.

The political and practical stakes were sky-high.

Pedro Panelo, the 21-year-old president of the College Republicans at Wheaton College in IL, is frustrated immigration became a last-minute political football, because the issue is more complex than what either Democrats or Republicans make it out to be. Party nominees have publicly released their returns for decades.

An 86% chance is not a sure thing, but it's a strong indicator of the most likely outcome.

Of course it is possible that again, undecided voters will break for Trump and the Republican vote will be higher than expected in today's midterm elections.

Nevertheless, Trump hailed Renacci as "a wonderful human being" who has "run a really good campaign", adding, "it's not easy". Like other Democrats across the country, Spanberger emphasized protecting people with pre-existing conditions from being denied coverage or charged more by insurers. But Trump and his associates appeared confident that the broad support they have in middle America would sustain.

The demographic divides were coloring the political landscape in different ways. Democrats could also make significant progress in the investigations of Trump's possible collusion with Russian Federation and of his tax returns.

Democrats face a far more hard challenge in the Senate, where they are nearly exclusively on defense in rural states where Trump remains popular.

In Texas, Democrats are hoping to win their first Senate seat in 30 years.

Democrats' fate depends upon a delicate coalition of infrequent voters - particularly young people and minorities - who traditionally shun midterm elections.

Democrats boast record diversity on the ballot.
