Races to watch in United States midterm elections

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

"The press is very much considering it a referendum on me and us as a movement".

Trump spent the day at the White House, tweeting, making calls, monitoring the races and meeting with his political team. A fanatical Trump supporter was also arrested on charges of mailing pipe bombs to prominent opponents of the president, including Obama. And while the findings are far from definitive, they do suggest that the national playing field for Democrats this year is tilted in their favour.

Overall, 6 in 10 voters said the country was headed in the wrong direction, but roughly that same number described the national economy as excellent or good. There are now 236 Republicans, 193 Democrats and six vacancies. "You see how they've behaved". She endured millions of dollars in GOP attack ads and Trump's rally cry against her "radical Democratic agenda". "Vote for the Democrat". "The President called to congratulate Rick Scott, Mike DeWine, Kevin Cramer, Josh Hawley, Brian Kemp, and Ron DeSantis", she said, adding that Trump had also spoken with Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer.

Appearing before thousands in an overflowing aircraft hangar in Macon for Republican gubernatorial candidate Brian Kemp, Trump declared, "There's electricity in the air like I haven't seen since '16".

"They still haven't accepted that they lost the election in 2016", he said. "So I understand that you can have both sides", Gonzalez said.

Between Trump's "trade war", his renegotiation of global treaties, robust U.S. growth and full employment, the economy is at the heart of this election.

But as he touched down in IN for the second leg of his final-day tour, even Trump conceded that the House may slip from his party's grasp.

"What's going on right now is pretty scary to me, at the border, with all those people coming, and I don't think I'm hardhearted or anything", said Patricia Maynard, a 63-year-old retired teacher in Skowhegan, Maine.

There were no quick victories in the closely contested open governor's races in Florida and Georgia, two Deep South states where black candidates would break barriers if they win but faced Republicans who were drawing energy from their close alignment with Trump.

Still, he told reporters before boarding Air Force One that "tremendous crowds" were already awaiting him in both states.

Other exit polls show similar numbers. "I have never had to wait that long, ever", Barkley said.

The driver, 21-year-old Colten Treu, later surrendered to authorities after police launched a search for the vehicle. The vehicle then lurched back onto the road and sped off, according to police, leaving behind a scene of horror.

Republicans have privately encouraged the president to back off, to no avail.

In Chattanooga, Tennessee, to bolster the prospects of Republican Senate candidate Marsha Blackburn, Trump once again warned that caravans of immigrants are on their way to flood across the southern border.

"I don't care. They can do whatever they want, and I can do whatever I want", Trump said as he deplaned in IN for his second rally of the day.

With a characteristic mix of folksiness, bombast and sometimes cruel humor, he says voters must choose between his stewardship of a booming economy and what he claims would be the Democrats' extreme-left policies.

"I think it's about the character of the country", he said in Wilmington, Delaware, where he voted.

The Republican-controlled Senate has confirmed 84 of President Trump's judicial nominees, including two Supreme Court justices. CNN last week cited unnamed sources inside the Democratic party as saying that the party is quietly gearing up to implement some investigations against Trump, and the issue has grabbed numerous headlines over the past couple of weeks. "That's a big difference", he said, crediting his rallies for the influence.

Casting his ballot in Chicago, James Gerlock, 27, a Republican, said he wanted to see continued economic growth under Mr Trump.

In a Fox News op-ed on Monday he wrote that the United States "has the best economy in the history of our country - and hope has finally returned to cities and towns across America".

"It's all fragile. Everything I told you about, it can be undone and changed by the Democrats if they get in", Trump told supporters Monday on a telephone "town hall" organized by his re-election campaign.

The president has boasted about the economy and hammered away at illegal immigration in the closing days of the campaign as he seeks to retain a congressional majority and salvage his legislative agenda. In the final stretch Trump has brought out special guests to join him on the campaign trail.
