Congressional Leaders Warn of Democratic Check on Trump Presidency

Heller was an open critic of Trump during his 2016 campaign and says while he and the president may have had their differences and arguments in the past, things are different now. Republicans would probably lose Arizona and Nevada, the two swing seats they are defending, but they are clear favorites to unseat Sen. "This is not what we expected the final weeks of the election to focus on".

US President Donald Trump (L) and former US president Barack Obama.

"One election won't eliminate racism, sexism or homophobia", Obama said during an appearance in Florida.

If Trump is trying to push DeWine over the goal line, his endorsement of Rep. Jim Renacci, a USA congressman challenging Democrat Sherrod Brown for a seat in the Senate, is nothing short of a Hail Mary.

CNN, in a piece headlined "The Forecast: Democrats are still favored to win the House". "It's not going to happen in one election".

Kevin Mack, the lead strategist for the group, said voters it had surveyed were more motivated by antipathy for Trump than anything else, and that Democrats remained too "risk-averse". As 2016 showed us, though, taking strong odds and reading them as guarantees can make you look awfully dumb. 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.

In traditionally Republican 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. Let's assume the double-digit leads that Democrats used to have on the generic ballot (until recently) prevails on Election Day, and Americans vote Democratic by 10 or more points nationwide.

Nationally: The Trump administration announced it is planning to reinstate sanctions on Iran on Monday that had previously been removed under the 2015 nuclear deal.




As a result, Bloomberg's team poured money into otherwise overlooked suburban districts in states like Georgia, Washington state and Oklahoma because data revealed voters there were better-educated. Although the two principal issues in the election campaign are healthcare and immigration, "it's about something more elemental: what kind of country Americans see today and want to see in the future", wrote veteran political analyst Dan Balz in a comment headlined "This midterm election is like no other in a generation". But in Tennessee, he couldn't help but shout out the Republican Senate candidate in Arizona, Rep. Martha McSally, who faces Democratic Rep. Kyrsten Sinema. 'These are rough, rough people in many cases, and if they're allowed to break through our borders only larger and bigger -we have emboldened these people'.

Problem two, those House investigations into the President and the White House would have some extra teeth with a Democratic Senate backing them up. If the RCP average of D+7.3 is closer to reality, it might be a bigger pickup than just a bare majority in those close-run districts.

"They'll do anything and everything they can to impeach him", she said.

Democrats may well take control of the House, may even do so decisively.

Liberal activist Tom Steyer spent roughly $120 million this midterm season.

Trump is also hammering away at the anxieties of women voters. That means Democrats would only need to win seven of the 30 seats that Cook rates as "toss-ups".

"We're not some fringe element of the Democratic Party". Still, his rhetoric on the stump made for a stark contrast with most Democratic candidates.

Veteran Democratic strategist Paul Begala doesn't think it's hyperbolic to say that "everything" is at stake for Democrats heading into Tuesday's elections. The flood of campaign cash, a midterm record, has been overwhelmingly fueled by energy on the left. "He's just so irresponsible", said Albrecht, who worries Trump's embrace of the far-right is remaking his party. "We are in a battle for America's soul", Biden said in Harrisburg.
