Border Security, Economic Boom, Healthcare: Which Closing Arguments Will Win the Election?

We can argue about the definition of "wave", but 40-45 seats certainly qualifies, and Democrats would also likely have at least a 50-50 tie in the Senate (though Vice President Mike Pence would still give the GOP control). "I can't speak to the blue, but I can speak to the red", Mr. Trump said earlier of Democrats and Republicans.

"It's going to be a long night for America's voters and a busy night for us", says OneNewsNow editor-in-chief Jody Brown. "There are a couple of honest polls that are showing some very, very good promise tomorrow".

If you want to veer away from all the talking heads and go straight for the numbers ahead of polls, you can find a longlist of individual polls here or generic poll-of-polls for the House here and a similar curation for the Senate here.

According to Politico, President Trump and his allies have crafted a "face-saving" plan if Democrats capture a House majority - "tout Trump as the savior of Republicans in the Senate". While cautioning some key congressional races are statistical dead heats, pollsters note more House districts trending toward the Democrats in recent days and expect Republicans will lose their majority in that chamber. "Americans will either want to put a check on Mr Trump or they won't", tweeted Dr Larry Sabato, director of the University of Virginia's Centre for Politics.

"Communism is the past", Trump said at the White House on October 4.

"For Democrats, winning the House is not necessarily about advancing a major agenda of their own; it's about preventing the Republicans from advancing their agenda", Mr Kondik said.

Other close races in the state include GOP Rep. Jeff Denham's re-election bid against challenger Josh Harder in the 10th and Rep. Steve Knight facing Democrat Katie Hill in the 25th.

"Part of what's at stake here is our ability to send a message that this is not who we are", said Karen Finney, a Democratic consultant who worked on Hillary Clinton's losing 2016 campaign.

How the House operates can change dramatically with a shift in party control. The average loss in the years since World War II is 24 seats.

In the closing weeks of the midterms, Trump has unleashed a no-holds-barred effort to boost Republicans as he dipped into the same undercurrents of unease that defined his 2016 campaign. Races in Tuesday's election are being held within new boundaries drawn by the court's Democratic majority.

"It all depends on turnout", he said.

As of Sunday morning, nearly 34.4 million people had cast ballots early, according to the Election Project at the University of Florida, which tracks turnout.

CNN said 42 percent of voters said their ballot will be a chance to express opposition to the president, while for 28 percent it's a chance to show support. Most top races, however, are set in America's suburbs where more educated and affluent voters in both parties have soured on Trump's turbulent presidency, despite the strength of the national economy.

"Nobody in the White House has ever had the greatest economy in the history of our country".

Greg Valliere, chief global strategist at Horizon Investments, said Monday that the election's impact on markets is likely "not enormous". He has campaigned in 24 states for Republicans.

After a Trump rally in September in Springfield, Missouri, pro-Trump activist Brenda Webb, 64, sat for a late dinner at a restaurant with five friends who had driven to the rally from the St. Louis suburbs.

EXPECT VOLATILITY TO FALL Some investment strategists are expecting volatility to ease after the U.S. midterm elections as the elimination of at least one uncertainty the market is facing right now will give traders less reason to worry regardless of what the outcome is. But at a rally in Cleveland later, he conceded, "In a sense, I am on the ticket". "The only check right now on the behaviour of these Republicans is you and your vote", he added.

The President's critics say the highly charged atmosphere he has helped create made the two attackers feel sufficiently comfortable to carry out their crimes.

A political surrogate for Mr Gillum's white Republican rival Ron DeSantis was meanwhile accused of using a racial "dog whistle".
