"I'm not on the ticket, but I am on the ticket, because this is also a referendum about me", he told a rally in MS recently.

Analysts at Rabobank suggest that Americans will cast their crucial votes in today's mid-term elections, which for many will be a referendum on Trump's presidency. "How we treat other people is on the ballot".

But Republicans are favored to retain their slight majority in the U.S. Senate, now at two seats, which would let them retain the power to approve U.S. Supreme Court and other judicial nominations on straight party-line votes. She said she fully supports Mr. Trump's decision to send military troops to the Mexican border to intercept the caravan a move critics say is unnecessary and a political stunt, given the migrants are travelling mostly on foot and remain hundreds of kilometres away.

President Donald Trump has been very unapologetic about his tough talk for years, but now he claimed in an interview with WJLA that he has regrets about his tone as President.

Well, I think it's a lot more complicated than that.

As much as the President will be celebrating, Kyle Kondik says he will also be relieved.

It found registered voters preferred Democratic candidates for the House over Republicans by 50 percent to 43 percent, but that was down from a 14-point advantage in August.

"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.

North Dakota, Missouri and Nevada are all potentially decisive senate races to watch too. Republicans are competing in just eight held by Democrats.

This outcome might not be all roses for the President though.

As the issue gained traction in the midterms campaign, Republicans furiously sought to backpedal by releasing numerous ads that claim they do want protections for pre-existing conditions after all.

The disagreement highlights the tug-of-war over strategy that's been dogging the GOP all year: Should Republicans prioritize turning out Trump backers, or appeal to suburban swing voters?

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.

Congress could also grind to a halt, with the only things like legislation to deal with the debt ceiling or preventing a government shutdown finding bipartisan consensus.

On Monday in Cleveland, Trump invoked the final days of the 2016 campaign, comparing his upset victory then to Republicans defying the polls now and potentially keeping both houses of Congress.

In the final stretch, Trump has ramped up his hard-line rhetoric on immigration and cultural issues, including warnings about a caravan of migrants headed to the border with Mexico and "liberal" mobs, and touted a growing US economy that he said would be threatened by Democrats.

When the Democrats lost the House in 2010, they rapidly saw President Barack Obama's legislative agenda die.

"What the President might say, or tweet, or attribute this blue wave to ..." "We're supposed to be a group of people, Americans, who are supposed to be that light in the world".

"They key thing is the Democrats could actually shut down the confirmation process for judicial nominees, which is pretty significant".

For many of us there has been one big question to ask throughout this presidency. "However, I believe that if the Democrats take over one chamber of Congress, such as the House, they will hold oversight hearings and make life hell for immigration officials who have been responsible for separating children from parents or other heavy handed enforcement actions".

Democrats feel they need to limit the losses in the Senate. A serious Republican challenger could try and win the nomination of the party for 2020.

As you can imagine, more people are reading The Jerusalem Post than ever before.

"If you do see a turn against Democrats in Midwestern states such as in and Missouri, I think it is fair to say that the Republicans who are winning in those places are probably going to be more critical of trade, whereas the Democrats in those states are going to be a more centrist wing of the Democratic party", Hurl explained.
