Americans Prepare to Render Midterm Verdict on Trump

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

But what if that doesn't happen? And if there was any doubt that this election is all about Trump, he made that clear.

The Daily Beast has examined that "unthinkable" scenario in some depth.

"They'll do anything and everything they can to impeach him", she said. No attempt to prepare for the potential disaster. If Democrats can win over these voters and pick up three Republican-held seats, they have a chance to gain control of the Senate.

The predictive model at FiveThirtyEight now projects an 88 per cent chance of them winning the seats required. A CNN poll released on November 5 found that Democrats led Republicans on a generic ballot by 13 points, 55 percent to 42 percent.

Trump doesn't think much of that poll. It all depends on how accurately they have predicted voter turnout.

"The drumbeat you hear across America is people voting", Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi said as polls opened Tuesday. In the midterms, because there is no presidential election, there is no electoral college. Donaldus Magnus is driving everything left and right, Republican and Democrat.

Julie Hoeppner, a 67-year-old psychologist in IN, voted early for Republican candidates, also citing illegal immigration as a primary concern.

"I remember with [my election], this is very much a Tuesday state".

After months of campaigning, speculation, and billions of dollars spent on adverts, leaflets and bumper stickers, voters will have their final say on Tuesday.

The hyper-charged environment is expected to drive record turnout in some places, but on the eve of the election, it's far from certain which side will show up in the greatest numbers. "And there's an understanding, for the first time in 10 years, that the path to the majority is through the Blue Dog-type districts we need to win", Schrader told CNN. What if all the pollsters and pundits have missed a surge of silent Trump supporters?

When Clinton lost in 2016, the candidate and fellow Democrats responded with shock and anger at how wrong the polls were. "We have added almost 500,000 manufacturing jobs to our economy - jobs that many self-proclaimed experts said would never return", Trump wrote in an op-ed for Fox News.

Mark Taylor calls for end to cricket bloodletting
"I said many months ago that my next step as a Cricket Australia director was either to step up or step off the board", he added. Mark Taylor had been Cricket Australia director for last 13 years.


Outside Richmond, one-time tea party favorite Rep. Dave Brat faced an unusually strong challenge from Democrat Abigail Spanberger, a former Central Intelligence Agency operative motivated to run for office after the GOP vote to gut the Affordable Care Act.

Trump, however, has seized this allegedly unconnected-to-the-elections caravan in his inimitable style. "We are the Democratic Party", he said.

"We're not some fringe element of the Democratic Party". The Tea Party movement grew as a response to that, propelling Republicans to a crushing victory in the midterms that year.

But two years after an election that proved polls and prognosticators wrong, an air of uncertainty - and stormy weather across parts of the country - clouded the outcome of high-stakes elections from Florida to Alaska and everywhere in between.

The final polls varied, but they were generally good for Democrats. In that scenario, Democrats would only need to win eight of the 30 races in Toss Up to win control (they now hold one Toss Up, Minnesota's 1st CD). In a White House speech, the president said he would sign an order preventing border-crossers from claiming asylum, a legally questionable proposition, and said he'd told military troops he's mobilising to the border to respond to thrown rocks like they were "rifles".

He said he doesn't know how other people respond to that issue, but he's "ticked off" about it. That's nowhere near as well as they were doing in the GOP/Clinton seats, where Democrats led virtually all of the contests. "This compares to the mid- to high 20s for most weeks during President Obama's a year ago in office". That is exactly what they are going to get.

"He is kind of a towering figure in the party".

USA tech companies are stepping up security and efforts to fight disinformation campaigns to prevent online troublemakers from trying to divide voters and discredit democracy.

Some of the contenders for Obama's mantle, such as Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren and Sanders, are busy quietly defending their own seats at the moment.

Democrats are getting some high-profile campaigners to help them, including former President Barack Obama, who rallied voters in his home state of IL.

Both parties have a chance, if only a slim one, for an upset in the respective chambers where they're playing as underdogs.
