Will Republicans win midterm elections? Latest results for US Midterms

But that didn't keep Trump, who has two more campaign stops in IN and Missouri tonight, from encouraging his supporters to get out to the polls.

But Democratic former President Barack Obama hit the campaign trail in the election's final days to challenge Trump, questioning his policies and character. Median outcome = D+36 seats. Democrats would gain the power to thwart Republicans' legislative agenda, launch investigations into Trump's activities, subpoena his officials, obtain his tax returns, and, possibly, to impeach him at some point in the future. Loves his Country and his State.

Donald Trump is an extraordinarily polarising person.

But as he touched down in IN for the second leg of his final-day tour, even Trump conceded that the House may slip from his party's grasp. Like Mr. Trump, Mr. In an interview with The Associated Press last month, Trump said he would not accept blame for a GOP defeat at the polls.

These queries buy into the general suspicion against migrants that Trump is fanning with great exuberance. Is it people ticked off at the Kavanaugh hearings, ticked off at the caravan, ticked off at the left?

"I would like to have a much softer tone". And there are reports since that besides the United States army, several militia groups are headed to defend the border. Trump and his backers have called it "an invasion" - though the group of a few thousand people, including mothers and children, remains hundreds of miles away - and suggested without proof that there are criminals and terrorists in the crowd of those fleeing violence and poverty.

If the 2016 election taught us anything, it was not to rely only on the polls. "And especially in the House where a simple majority gives you nearly absolute power to again set the agenda and get bills across the floor".

Early indications would appear to support this.

"The Republican Party, first of all, is going to be the Trump party", Gingrich says. His current approval rating among Republican voters has reportedly touched a whopping 89 percent.

Republicans have played up the robust economy, but also used scare tactics and accused the Democratic Party of wanting to turn America into a socialist disaster rife with criminal illegal immigrants.

The Republican Party are largely expected to retain control of the US Senate but lose the majority of the House, according to the latest polls. Dean Heller versus Democrat Jacky Rosen in Nevada; Democrat Kyrsten Sinema versus Republican Martha McSally in Arizona; Democratic Sen.

In the House, where 435 seats are up for re-election, forecasters say the Republicans only have a 12.1 percent chance of holding control. Democrats need him to win if they hope to have any chance at taking over the Senate, as much of a long shot as it is for them to do that this cycle.

There are indications that a modest "blue wave" of support may help Democrats seize control of at least one chamber of Congress. Democrats are relying more upon women, people of color, young people and college graduates.

But Brookings Institution expert John Hudak said it is also clear that Trump is a major issue for both parties this year. An independent, he's voted for GOP candidates before. But some of the biggest delays at voting booths were also in Georgia. "The Democrats will do quite well in the House of Representatives, in the governorships and state legislatures". "The promise is Trump will have an easy foil to run against: Pelosi and Democratic leadership".

Iowa offers a toss-up governor's race and several House contests to watch. Trump declared in his typical style: "If she gets in, Georgia goes backwards". That is exactly what they are going to get.

The first polls have officially closed for this years midterm elections. If Trump manages to pull off a victory in terms of retaining control of one or both Houses, it will be seen as a validation of his stand that poor migrants and refugees from other countries are a threat to the peaceful life of the American people and send out a clear message to the world on what the original "country of migrants" now thinks on that issue.
