Democrats’ Pickup Chances Rise in More House Races, Analyst Says

Trump midterm campaign rally As midterms loom, Trump seems at peace with losing the House. Is that because it could help him in 2020?

A Democratic House would likely launch numerous investigations into Mr. Trump and his associates, and might even explore impeachment proceedings down the line. Aided by Republican retirements and an unprecedented flood of donations, majority from women, they appear to be almost guaranteed to gain at least somewhere in the mid-to-high teens.

Democrats have accused Republicans of trying to suppress turnout among racial minorities in states like Georgia, where Republican gubernatorial candidate Brian Kemp is overseeing his own election.

But opinion polls were wrong in 2016 and as the midterm election nears, most pundits have turned to hedging their bets. Both findings suggest Republicans have more of a chance than do Democrats to gain these voters' support in the final days.

The Democrat started with a massive gap between him and Cruz in the polls, but now the gap has narrowed considerably, with one big poll showing him and Cruz neck-and-neck.

CNN shows the dems ahead in the House of Representatives 55 to 42 per cent. Seven in Ten likely voters said they wanted to send a message to Donald Trump. (She is now the ranking member of the House Financial Services Committee and could become chairwoman after the election.) He has previously referred to her as a "low-IQ individual" and at events the weekend before the midterm election sarcastically called her "legendary" and "genius".

After that the president will only have a few hours more before polls open across the world's largest economy.

"If the radical Democrats take power, they will take a wrecking ball to our economy and to our future".

There are five critical toss-up House races in California, and as the election results map unfolds through the night, there is every chance that those races could be the ones that finally decide the balance of power in the House. The amusing thing is that President Donald Trump seems at peace with that. He is bombarding the voters with tweets and speeches that make out the caravan as a bunch of criminals who threaten the safety of the United States, with particular emphasis on the welfare of women. From stoking fears about illegal immigration to warning of economic collapse if Democrats are victorious.

Why Europe is closely watching the US vote: While US midterm elections typically do not generate great interest overseas, Germany and others in the European Union are paying close attention, since the outcome could have a significant impact on Trump's foreign policy.

The midterms are being watched beyond America's borders - as Trump's moves cause ripples internationally.

Given Trump's stunning victory in 2016, few were confident in their predictions.

Polls indicate that Democrats will take control of the House, but could lose seats in the Republican-controlled Senate, where they continue to play defense in several states where they have run incumbents.

Trump flew to Fort Wayne just days after stumping in Indianapolis, where he brought along native son Vice President Mike Pence and pugnacious basketball coach Bobby Knight in an effort to unseat Donnelly.

Laying into the tangled legal scandals enveloping the Trump administration - especially the possible collusion between his presidential campaign and Russian operatives - Mr Obama scoffed: "They've racked up enough indictments to fill a football team".

"The character of our country is on the ballot", he said. Republicans are favoured to maintain or slightly expand their slim 51-seat to 49-seat Senate advantage, and Trump's ability to strategically inflame white-working-class and rural conservatives may be a key factor.

The entire 435-member House of Representatives and a third of the 100-seat Senate are up for grabs.
