Trump zeros in on Senate races

Some 250,000 jobs were created last month beating expectations

In this October 30, 2018 photo, Michael Gregoire holds a hand-painted sign which reads, "Defeat Republicans 2018", along a street in Louisville, Ky.

"The character of our country is on the ballot", he said.

In case you're not aware, Republicans held a majority in the House of Representatives and the Senate before the midterms (if you want to know more about the basics of the election, you can head here). In traditionally red Texas, popular Democrat Beto O'Rourke is trying to dethrone Senator Ted Cruz, while Republican Pete Stauber might flip a House Democratic stronghold in Minnesota.

"It could happen", Trump said Friday about losing the House. "He's not on the ticket".

Donald Trump, his Republicans and their Democratic rivals steeled themselves for a final frenzied day of campaigning on Monday on the eve of contentious USA midterm elections, when voters render their verdict on the President's first two years in office. For Gregoire and Kanter, and for voters across the country, the election represents something far greater than whatever Senate and House races appear on their ballots.

Less than two weeks ago in this city, a white man gunned down two African-American shoppers at a grocery store in what police described as a racially motivated attack.

In the final sprint to Election Day, Trump has pushed forward with rallies amid news events that would have halted previous leaders - holding a massive event in IL the same day a gunman massacred 11 people in a Pittsburgh synagogue.

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

"He has diarrhea of the mouth and diarrhea of the brain. 'Don't worry about it, I'll just figure it out.'" Bracing for defeat, he said on a conference call with supporters Monday that he wasn't sure the election could fairly be considered a referendum on him.

"I think I've made a difference of five or six or seven".

He said that doesn't foreclose the Democrats' chances by any stretch. While President Trump's focus on immigration has helped Republicans in some races, others fear that he has gone too far and alienated swing voters.

"They want to impose socialism on our country".

The numbers suggest turnout will be very high for a non-presidential election, McDonald wrote on his U.S. Elections Project website.

Trailer for Next Week’s ‘The Walking Dead’ Teases Rick’s Last Episode
Where did she even go? Negan counters by saying she's afraid to end up like him (i.e. all alone and with no one to love or fight). Daryl tells Rick he'll help get to Alexandria faster on his bike when he really plans to block Rick from getting there.

President Trump is stumping in states he won in 2016, like Tennessee and Georgia, and touting the booming economy and immigration.

"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.

A friend recently sent Hoeppner a photo of immigrants arriving at Ellis Island with a note that said: "For our ancestors, this is their caravan". The crowd responded with the chant, "Lock her up!" "That's a big difference", he said, crediting his rallies for the influence.

"The kind of people that come to them are not typical Republicans".

According to the Wesleyan Media Project, no other USA general election in the last decade has seen close to so many attack ads as this one.

What it would mean: President Trump and Republicans would step on the gas, validated by an election cycle dominated by negative news coverage and polling that said the GOP had its back against the wall.

"To say "look we tried this ... we can safely say it failed and now I'm a better choice".

He said he's felt an extraordinary level of enthusiasm for this election among his fellow students.

But in what could be a sharp warning sign for Republicans, the poll reported that college-educated White women - the so-called suburban moms seen as crucial to the 2018 outcome - favour Democrats by a substantial 61% to 33%.

Tuesday's elections will also test the strength of a Trump-era political realignment defined by evolving divisions among voters by race, gender and especially education. "For infrastructure, the most important thing about the election is that it will be over", he said.

The symbolic news of Obama's victory, for most Americans, came at 11 p.m., yet tens of thousands of people who were elated about the history-making moment turned out to hear Obama's victory speech in Grant Park in his hometown Chicago.

Rose Cathleen Bagin, 77, lives in the same neighborhood as the synagogue. "Vote for the Democrat". "I'm terrified. We're going to a place I just don't understand".
