Trump Says Election Will Be Seen as Referendum on Him

  • Youth turnout could hold the key in the US mid terms and threaten Trump's hold on Congress

Trump was spending Election Day at the White House and tweeting support for Republicans in the toughest races.

Voters must decide on Tuesday whether to constrain President Donald Trump and his compliant Republicans after the first two years of a demagogic presidency that widened national divides and unfolded in a torrent of scandal.

Traditionally, the midterms are bad for the President's party, because voters see it as a chance to punish the administration.

"There will be, I imagine, great introspection within the Trump White House", said Gearan, who is now the director of the Harvard Kennedy School Institute of Politics.

Democrat Bill Nelson, 76, was first elected to the Senate in 2000 and was easily reelected in 2006 and 2012. Where Cross lives, a gunman tried to get into a majority-black church but found the doors locked and went instead to a nearby grocery store, where he gunned down two elderly African-American shoppers in what police are calling a hate crime. That barbed wire - yes sir, we have barbed wire going up. "And you know if you're criticized you have to hit back, or you should". "He is so different; he really doesn't come into a box", Barbara, a 72-year-old born-and-raised Virginia mother who supported the president in 2016, said Monday as she paused outside a suburban Richmond shopping plaza. "Vote Republican", Trump said to a cheering crowd, referring to illegal immigrants. His searing nationalist rhetoric and tearing of cultural fault lines drew criticism that he had crossed a risky line after a gunman killed 11 people in a synagogue massacre in Pittsburgh and a Trump supporter mailed bombs to the President's top targets in politics and the media, including two former Presidents. "It's all fragile", he said on the call.

Galdieri said that Trump's campaign took off back in 2015 "because of the hard line he took on immigration - that led him to the GOP nomination and to a win in the electoral college".

"No, I don't view this as for myself", Trump said, before making the case that his campaigning has "made a big difference" in a handful of Senate races across the country.

Democrats have denounced Mr Trump for what they called fear-mongering and decried his deployment of active duty troops to the southern border with Mexico as a "political stunt".

Still progressives are fighting up until the last minute trying to turn out the vote.

Mac Miller's cause of death revealed
Chance the Rapper, SZA and Miguel were among the artists to perform at a tribute concert at the weekend . There was a 1/4-inch abrasion on the bridge of his nose, and there was blood coming out of one nostril.

"But in four days, Florida, you can be a check on that kind of behaviour". "You vote, you might save a life".

But Trump earlier in the day appeared to distance himself from the fate of House Republican candidates.

Monday will be a barnstormer for Trump, who will make stops in OH and in before a final campaign pitch in Missouri, where he is trying to knock Democratic Senator Claire McCaskill out of office.

While unemployment is down and the economy is growing under President Donald Trump, Republicans are anxious about his spending and greater voter turnout among Democrats could mean a victory for the blue party. It is also one of the most-expensive races in state history.

The N.C. Board of Elections and Ethics Enforcement reported issues with some ballot-counting machines, and blamed them on humidity and long ballots.

Opinion polls and election forecasters favour Democrats to pick up the minimum of 23 seats they need on Tuesday to capture a majority in the U.S. House of Representatives, which would enable them to stymie Trump's legislative agenda and investigate his administration. If they do that, they'll be able to more effectively block Trump's agenda and try to implement their own. That was during Republican President Ronald Reagan's first term, when turnout among Democrats rose at twice the rate of increase among Republicans, according to Pew Research Center, resulting in a net gain of 26 seats for Democrats in the House.

The Democratic party is favored to win the House, where a wave of Republican retirements created open seats in competitive districts throughout the country. All of his big achievements - like tax reform and the appointment of two US Supreme Court judges - have been extremely hard fought. He played to his base, but his over-the-top rhetoric turned off so many people that Democrats managed to retake the House.

Experts expect the state's 2nd, 9th and 13th congressional districts - George Holding vs. Linda Coleman; Mark Harris vs. Dan McCready; and Ted Budd vs. Kathy Manning, respectively - to be North Carolina's tightest House races. And Democrats would have failed - yet again - to frame an effective counter-narrative to the President's strongman rule.

The President's reputation for defying every political convention and omen would remain intact.
