Trump distancing self from fate of GOP in House

Susan Walsh  APPresident Donald Trump speaks during a rally in Estero Fla. Oct. 31 2018

If the Democrats have to gain control, they have to win 40 seats more than what they did in the last mid-term poll in 2014.

Among white college-educated women, Democrats enjoy a 28-point advantage: 61pc to 33pc.

"I think what you're seeing with the president is he's made a strategic decision that his ability to claim victory on election night will be by adding seats in the United States Senate", said former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, a Trump ally, on ABC's "This Week". "We can take it back".

That, I'm afraid, is how millions of Democrats would evaluate the outcome of the midterms if the Republicans hold both houses of Congress while losing the aggregate vote by multiple percentage points.

The Republican Party now controls the chamber with a 43-seat majority, but it is widely expected that the Democrats will gain control in tomorrow's election.

Overall, 42% of likely voters say their vote will be to express opposition to the president, while 28% say that it'll be to support him.

Trump told the crowd in Georgia to turn out to vote, joking that he "wouldn't say" the election is "as important as '16, but it's right up there". That level of opposition is similar to the way likely voters felt just ahead of the 2006 election, when 41% said they were voting to oppose then-President George W. Bush.

She also said that President Trump is delivering results for women in America.

It's now 46 percent approve, 52 percent disapprove - compared to October's 45 percent approve and 52 percent disapprove.

Others, for instance, reportedly urged male voters not vote as it would " drown out " the voices of women. The accounts originated in the US and were determined to be more mischievous than an organized plot.

Chelsea's Maurizio Sarri: Danny Drinkwater, Victor Moses not in tactical plans
If I need to cover immediately the lost ball we need to have good positions over the line in the defensive line. I think we need to improve and we need to improve with these players because they can improve .

Democrats face a far more hard challenge in the Senate, where they are nearly exclusively on defense in rural states where Trump remains popular.

"We're not letting these people invade our country", Trump declared. Those voters have increasingly fled Trump's Republican Party, turned off by his chaotic leadership style and xenophobic rhetoric.

There are indications that a so-called "blue wave" may help Democrats seize control of at least one chamber of USA congress. It is now made up of 51 Republicans and 49 Democrats.

Most Democrats consider the Russian Federation investigation a critical part of their vote (53% say it's extremely important), but just 8% of Republicans say the same. "But no one should be surprised if they only win 19 seats and no one should be surprised if they win 51 seats".

Republicans are favoured to retain their slight majority in the US Senate, now at two seats, which would let them retain the power to approve US Supreme Court and other judicial nominations on straight party-line votes.

Democrats lead among black voters, Hispanics, young people, women and independents, while Republicans hold an edge with older Americans, men and whites. The question, as always, is which party is more energized, which has the best get-out-the-vote operations, and, ultimately, which voters pull the curtains in the polling stations and thus pull away the curtains from the mystery surrounding the 2018 midterm elections. Worries about foreign interference are more widespread among Democrats, 74% of whom think it's likely to happen and 90% of whom consider it a major problem. If Trump manages to pull off a victory in terms of retaining control of one or both Houses, it will be seen as a validation of his stand that poor migrants and refugees from other countries are a threat to the peaceful life of the American people and send out a clear message to the world on what the original "country of migrants" now thinks on that issue. That's slightly lower than the 85% who felt that way just after Trump's election in 2016.

Bredesen says politics "is a blood sport - but I've come here to show that there are other ways to campaign and to present your case to the people of Tennessee". The new congressional term begins in January 2019.

The CNN Poll was conducted by SSRS from November 1 through 3 among a random national sample of 1,518 adults reached on landlines or cellphones by a live interviewer.
