The biggest threat to Trump winning a second term

  • Pelosi tells Democrats not to be baited by Trump's 'scaravans'; 'San Francisco values, that's what we're about'

Other 2020 prospects on the ballot included Massachusetts Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand and New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo.

Another key House race is in California, where Democrat Harley Rouda is seeking to unseat longtime Republican incumbent Dana Rohrabacher in Republican bastion Orange County. The outgoing Governor of Florida is Republican Rick Scott.

"Everything we have achieved is at stake", Trump declared in his final day of campaigning. "But if there's misogyny, there's also a big upside in women".

Total voter turnout in the county is 51 percent - only 6 percent less than the entire election turnout in the 2014 midterm election.

But while the results may reveal weaknesses in the Republican coalition, midterm elections are very different than presidential years.

Talk-radio host Rush Limbaugh explained on his national broadcast Tuesday: "Focusing first on the early vote, who is it?"

A majority of the 113,000 voters surveyed said the country is headed in the wrong direction.

Phillips noted that, while this is frequently the case, the focus seems to be more on rhetoric this time than on policy. But two years after an election that proved polls and prognosticators wrong, nothing is certain on the eve of the first nationwide elections of the Trump presidency. He's been accused of voter suppression but at the weekend he launched an investigation into claims that Democrats were being investigated for trying to hack the state's voter registration system.

"The president absolutely is the focal point".

Analysts expect pressure on stocks if Democrats gain control of the House and a sharper downward reaction if they take the Senate too.

Americans are going to the polls to vote on all 435 seats in the House, 35 of the 100 Senate seats and dozens of state governors. For the first time in his presidency, he offered an actual answer when he was asked if he had any regrets.

"The House has been a rubber stamp for the Trump agenda".

China to kick off its first International Import Expo
Trump's tactics but echo US complaints. "We've taken the toughest-ever action to crack down on China's abusive trade practices". But it is "unlikely to have much impact" on its politically sensitive trade balance with the United States.

Democrats appear hopeful that Trump's histrionics and harsh tongue will convince their voters to come out and vote in large numbers this time and ensure a victory for their candidates to control both houses. This practice of manipulating constituency maps to gain political advantage was first practiced by MA governor Elbridge Gerry.

Democrats are favoured by election forecasters to pick up the minimum of 23 House seats they need for a majority, which would enable them to stymie Trump's legislative agenda and investigate his administration. The poll of likely voters found that 46% would choose the Republican candidate, while 45% would choose the Democrat.

Some Democrats have already vowed to force the release of his tax returns. But a Republican Senate will not remove him from office.

The Cook Political Report rates 75 House seats as "competitive", with 70 of those seats now held by Republican incumbents. Democrats are relying more upon women, people of colour, young people and college graduates.

OneNewsNow is working alongside its sister organization, American Family Radio, to provide live election night coverage from Tim Wildmon, president of the American Family Association, and Fred Jackson, news director of American Family News, as well as other familiar AFA voices.

In suburban areas where key House races will be decided, voters skewed significantly toward Democrats by a almost 10-point margin.

However, political science professor Ryan Hurl believes it would be "dangerous" for the Democrats to impeach Trump if the charges are spurious.

Anxious Republicans privately expressed confidence in their narrow Senate majority but feared the House was slipping away. Today Americans get to give their verdict on how he is doing in midterm congressional elections.

Democrats boast record diversity on the ballot.

Thirty-six of the 50 U.S. states elect governors this year, including about 10 considered toss-ups.

In cramped aircraft hangars and pack arenas across battleground states, Trump has boasted about the energetic displays of support from his most loyal backers, drawing parallels to his own White House bid.
