Last Rasmussen Poll: GOP House Chances Looking Up

Barack Obama condemned Donald Trump without addressing him by name and Republicans for what he described as their divisive policies

About 40 million early votes were likely cast, said Michael McDonald, a professor at the University of Florida who tracks the figures. He then pondered how the media will react if Republicans fall short.

Republicans will do their best to exacerbate those divisions.

"The fact we still have a narrow path to a majority is a sea change from where we were two years ago", he said on ABC.

The Republican party now has majority in both the Senate and the House and Trump and his team left no stone unturned to campaign in favour of his Republican party. "Trump has hijacked the election", one senior House Republican aide tells Politico. Senate Republicans can continue to confirm judges at record rates. And both chambers could take another swing at repealing the Affordable Care Act and possibly help Trump shut down the Mueller investigation.

"Dog whistle politics by its very nature exploits coded language that communicates a strong racial subtext but simultaneously allows the dog whistling politician to deny that he intends a racial message", Ian Haney López, author of Dog Whistle Politics: How Coded Racial Appeals Have Reinvented Racism and Wrecked the Middle Class, tells TIME in an email. Others have pledged to pursue impeachment, although removal from office is unlikely so long as the GOP controls the Senate or even maintains a healthy minority.

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. But Trump appears to have put his finger on a very contentious spot in the American mind-space: people are anxious that the liberalism of the Democrats may work completely against the interests of those already living in the country.

He noted that some GOP members who faced blowback from constituents on some key agenda items opted to "vote no but hope that the bill passes". Polling suggests the Republican coalition is increasingly older, whiter, more male and less likely to have a college degree. "I don't think so", Trump said, invoking images of the caravan of Central American migrants moving through Mexico.

Any move to fire Sessions or his deputy, Rod Rosenstein, would light a fire of controversy in Washington over the president's efforts to control or interfere in Special Counsel Robert Mueller III's investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election and its coordination with USA persons toward that end.

"We need to keep building on the success we have with the economy".

On the last day of the campaign, several major television networks - including NBC, CNN and Trump's favourite broadcaster Fox News - announced they had rejected an advertisement from Trump's team that portrayed immigrants as a violent threat to the US.

Trump, without control of Congress, could decide to triangulate. In other words it will more closely match the Trumpian base of the party.

Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich says even if the Republicans lose and privately blame Trump for their loss, they'll have no choice but to stand by him.

"The Republican Party, first of all, is going to be the Trump party", Gingrich says.

Republican Donald Trump and Democrat Barack Obama made duelling election appearances on Sunday, offering sharply different views on the country's problems but agreeing on the high stakes for voters in the final 48 hours of a tight campaign. "And that becomes the overriding goal". Democrats are defending 10 Senate seats in states Trump won; all of them contain large numbers of Obama-Trump voters. Any political damage inflicted on Trump's re-election efforts will also affect GOP candidates in 2020.
