The safe bet for this midterm is on the Democrats

Panelo, the son of a Mexican immigrant, said migrants shouldn't be demonized, but he stopped short of criticizing the president, and plans to vote for Republican candidates who could help push Trump's agenda.

It's a message that has resonated across much of liberal, progressive, and moderate America that fears rewarding President Trump with continued majority in Congress in addition to the control of the executive and judiciary that he already wields will roll back the USA to an era of racism and discrimination that white conservatives often gloss over, when they are not being sentimental about it. One campaign mailer sent out by a Republican candidate for a state Senate seat in CT showed his Jewish opponent holding a wad of cash in front of him with a crazed look in his eyes, an unmistakable allusion to the familiar slur against Jews. Bob Corker (R-TN), who opted to not seek reelection.

The US midterm elections will be the first test of how Donald Trump's doing as president halfway into his four-year term.

Trump planned to spend a final day on the campaign trail on Monday, hitting the Midwestern states of Ohio, Indiana and Missouri at the end of a six-day pre-election sweep focused mostly on competitive U.S. Senate races.

At a rally in Johnson City, Tennessee, in early October, Jessica Lotz, 33, and her fiance, Chad Lavery, 49, said Trump's immigration policies resonated with them. Evangelical Christians are also a key constituency, seen to be happy with Mr Trump and Vice-President Mike Pence over their pro-life conservatism and the President's shifting of the US Embassy in Israel to Jerusalem.

A Trump adviser, who asked not to be identified, told Reuters: "These are places where data and polling information tells us that the president is of best use".

In Texas, where Democratic Rep. Beto O'Rourke arose from obscurity to challenge Republican Sen. The answer is that the Democrats are having to defend 26 of their seats - 10 in states won by Trump in 2016 - while the Republicans have only nine seats in play, making it the most skewed contest since 1938.

Senator Heidi Heitkamp, who is facing re-election in a state Mr Trump won by almost 40 points in 2016, is considered the most endangered Democrat in the Senate.

In that statement the President simultaneously rid himself of responsibility should the Democrats take back the House, and positioned himself as the saviour of the Senate.

Democrats need to pick up two dozen seats to claim the House majority.

"The contrast in this election could not be more clear".

Hispanics nationwide, according to a Reuters/Ipsos national tracking poll released on Sunday, are more interested in voting this year than in the last us congressional midterm elections in 2014, and their enthusiasm outpaces that of all usa adults.

NASA’s Dawn probe falls silent, ending mission to mysterious dwarf planet Ceres
Dawn also detected an abundance of organic molecules in one of Ceres' craters, which might have come from the planet's ocean. The engineers have more than 99 percent confidence the orbit will last for at least 50 years, NASA stated on its website.

They have seven open congressional seats to fill, the most in decades. "That is an area where both the Trump administration and Democrats agree", he said. "There is a lot of energy out there".

"The big picture is that midterm elections go against the president's party", noted John Fortier of the Bipartisan Policy Center in Washington.

"But sometimes it's not exciting to talk about the economy".

Most of the economists and researchers are suggesting that the markets should be braced for a divided Congress as Democrats seem set to take control of the US House of Representatives, while the Republicans are likely to retain Senate control.

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.

Democrats also lead in terms of fund-raising, by roughly $1 billion to $700 million. Nancy Pelosi has said that Democrats are working on new rules to allow for more debate on the House floor. But it will all come down to who actually shows up to vote.

"You can hold the president accountable and say you'll fix health care at the same time", Mack said.

Donald Trump has divided America at home and isolated it overseas.

"We're not letting these people invade our country", Trump declared.

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.

"A vote for any Democrat this November is a vote to really put extreme far left politicians in charge of Congress and to destroy your jobs, slash your incomes, undermine your safety and put illegal aliens before American citizens", Trump said during a rally Saturday in Pensacola, Florida.
