Will Democrats win midterm elections? Latest results for United States midterms

April FrancisNov 07, 2018

With voters going to the polls Tuesday, nothing is certain.

Republicans control the House and the Senate as well as the presidency, giving them total law-making power in Washington DC.

There are several Democratic House targets, too, especially in NY and MI, but Republicans could pick up two Democratic-held seats in rural Minnesota.

"The only examples of a Republican President who controlled both the House and the Senate before the midterm elections, but lost control of the House, while maintaining control of the Senate, include only William Taft and Herbert Hoover", Nautilus Investment Research said in a note sent out to clients on Monday. He added: "The Democrat agenda is a socialist nightmare".

Democrats face a far more hard challenge in the Senate, where they are nearly exclusively on defense in rural states where Trump remains popular.

Now notice how few Democratic-held seats there are in the last two columns denoting races that are likely/leaning to go Republican. "It's an awakening of the Democratic Party".

However, the Democrats are expected to fall short of the two seats they need to win control of the Senate. But Trump and his associates appeared confident that the broad support they have in middle America would sustain. He never did, and also declined to release his tax returns as president.

On the Senate side, Indiana Democrat Joe Donnelly's fate will likely be critical to Senate control.

Sanders offered a less restrained version of progressivism, which resonated with millions of Democratic voters.

There are indications that a so-called "blue wave" may help Democrats seize control of at least one chamber of U.S. congress. Polling suggests the Republican coalition is increasingly older, whiter, more male and less likely to have a college degree.

All 435 seats in the US House of Representatives, 35 US Senate seats and 36 governorships are up for grabs in elections focused on dozens of competitive races from coast to coast that opinion polls show could go either way. He's a military veteran who prides himself on not being a career politician. "Because at that point we're all in it together or it's not going to happen". Late Tuesday morning, the El Paso office for U.S. Customs and Border Protection, which oversees the Border Patrol, confirmed to CBS News that the exercise has been postponed.

He used to come down at home games, have a joke and a laugh, always say, 'Want win and three points.' We did that today. Leicester held on to win 1-0, a result we were all kind of hoping and rooting for - bar Cardiff fans, naturally.

First in line was a retiree, Jerry, who did not want to give his last name and said he was voting for the first time in midterm elections. Maybe back in '16 during the presidential, right around the vote.

"The character of our country is on the ballot", he said. "Health care for millions of people". "If you want strong borders and safe communities vote for Republicans".

"This first midterm, at this check-in moment, to have these different forces converge in different ways, to have the different loud landscape for the House and the Senate". Still, his rhetoric on the stump made for a stark contrast with most Democratic candidates.

If Democrats win enough House seats to reclaim the majority, Trump would face a shift in the balance of power in Washington.

"I'm not pleased with Trump's leadership at all".

"Everything we have achieved is at stake tomorrow", he said during a blitz of three final rallies. "I think there will be no difference here".

Heye says the challenge for a lot of Republicans is that what's good for GOP lawmakers on Capitol Hill and what's good for the president aren't necessarily the same thing.

Trump doesn't think much of that poll.

Facebook also blocked about 115 user accounts after United States authorities tipped it off to suspicious behaviour that may be linked to a foreign entity, the company said hours voting began.

"One election won't eliminate racism, sexism or homophobia", Mr Obama said during an appearance in Florida. "I want a free trade environment where we actually cannot only have good relationships tradewise with our friends but stand up to China", Scalise said.
