Five of those seven seats were also held by Republicans.

Republicans are counting on Trump to rally his supporters in the closing hours to help maintain their narrow 51-to-49 seat edge in the Senate. But more significantly, polls suggest that Trump will lose control of the House of Representatives in today’s vote.

The president asserted that if Democrats win, they will work to roll back everything he’s tried to accomplish during his first two years as president. This year they filed a lawsuit to overturn what remains of the ACA and it was backed by the justice department, which said it concurred with the need to end the law’s guarantees that insurance companies could not deny coverage to people with pre-existing conditions. They can do whatever they want and I can do whatever I want’. “And especially in the House where a simple majority gives you nearly absolute power to again set the agenda and get bills across the floor”.

If they fall short on Tuesday in any regard, he said, it will be because they held their tongue on Trump. I don’t care what the fake media says. “They’ll be miserable because they’re in the minority”.

Whether they flip the House or not, Democrats are still expected to gain seats in the chamber, given the favorable political environment for Democrats.

Sean Trende of RealClearPolitics also had some possible good news for the GOP, noting, “There really are believable scenarios that don’t require Republicans to win districts that they have written off. Republicans have to catch some breaks, but they don’t have to catch breaks in ways that shock and surprise us”.

Democrats feel increasingly optimistic about their chances of taking back control of the House. Democratic Sen. Jon Tester is a slight favorite in a state Trump won by 20 points. Senate Republicans can continue to confirm judges at record rates.

Democrats have telegraphed they will open up investigations of his administration if they take over, and even try to force the release of his tax returns, something previous presidents did voluntarily for decades.

And Trump knows this election will impact the future of his agenda – specifically, in nominating and confirming conservative judges.

Elections for all the members of the House are held every two years. But 23 is no sure thing: polls suggest their leads are narrow in numerous seats that could push them into the mid-20s or even the mid-30s. I think we’re doing very well in the Senate.

Most Republicans admit the best-case scenario is keeping the losses to a minimum. There are also Senate races in Texas and Arizona, two big Democratic targets, which will nearly certainly be determinative of who controls the Senate.

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

‘I don’t care. They can do whatever they want and I can do whatever I want, ‘ he responded.

“Even though I’m not on the ballot, in a certain way I am on the ballot”, he said.

Trump, without control of Congress, could decide to triangulate.

“Under the expectation that Republican voters typically are more likely to turn out, can Democrats energize people who identify with the Democratic Party to turn out and vote for their candidates?”

Republicans “have actually brought the change”, she said. Democrats feel good about holding Pennsylvania and flipping MI.

When asked if he thought the advert was racist as he left for the rallies, the president said: “A lot of things are offensive”.

While no demographic group expressed more than 70 percent faith in democracy, some demographics were substantially more likely to express it than others. “I’ve never been so disappointed in my life”.

While Trump is not on the ballot, the most polarizing United States president for decades has put himself at the center of every issue. “And that becomes the overriding goal”. As for governors’ races, Georgia has one of the most closely watched races between Democrat Stacey Abrams, vying to be the first black woman ever elected governor in the country, and Republican Brian Kemp. Any political damage inflicted on Trump’s re-election efforts will also affect GOP candidates in 2020.
