5 possible scenarios for Election Day, and what they'd mean

Trump and Obama are the most popular figures in their parties, and their appearances on the campaign trail are created to stoke enthusiasm among core supporters in the late stages of a midterm congressional election widely seen as a referendum on Trump's first two years in the White House. They argue that the party needs to find its critical voice during what they see as a national crisis and that they risk not making a clear case to voters about the values for which the party stands. Joe Donnelly on Sunday ahead of Tuesday's midterm elections, taking aim at the Trump administration for sending troops to the U.S. -Mexico border.

"They all say "Speak about the economy, speak about the economy", well we have the greatest economy in the history of our country", the President told a rally.

They face strong headwinds.

Fear, the reigning idiom of the Donald Trump presidency, isn't about to roll over quietly, no matter what the results of the USA midterm elections on 6 November.

Republicans believe those issues, will help maintain control of the Senate.

The Republican president is the omnipresent figure as Americans render their verdict Tuesday on the past 21 months of Trumpism. Conservative Party candidate Sam McCann, a Republican state senator, will take from 5 to 7 percent of normally GOP votes away from Rauner.

"What can we learn, if anything, about where this vote is coming from?" "We have a lot of ads", he told reporters in the shadow of Air Force One's wing.

"The biggest worry for the White House in terms of re-election is making sure they have a Republican governor in Florida and OH because it just makes organizing those states all the easier", he said. He casts his rivals as an angry, liberal and risky "mob" and plays up gains in the economy. Without it, Trump's hand would be considerably weaker.

Tuesday is Election Day in America.

Trump frequently denies that he misleads the public and instead blames the media for what he describes as distortions of his words.

The bid to make it all about Trump is a gamble, as is his growing shift from touting economic successes to bitter - critics say racist - claims that the country is under attack from illegal immigration. In 1996, 1988, 1980, 1972, 1968 and 1956, one party controlled all of Congress, but voters picked the other party for the White House.

There is no strong historical relationship between midterms and the path of the United States currency, making a Democratic House victory unlikely to thwart the dollar's rally, Citi said.

All politics may be local, but this year President Trump is nationalizing them - and key close races across the nation tomorrow will serve as harbingers of the national political climate. 3% of likely voters said they would choose another candidate while 6% were undecided. First among them would be a potentially bitter leadership fight in the House to replace retiring Speaker Paul Ryan.

As the economy rebounded, so, too, did their fortunes. It would suggest - again - that polls might be underselling Trump's actual base of support and that we continue to fundamentally misunderstand what he's doing to our political coalitions. But they were just warmup acts for the main event, the blunt former presidential candidate Bernie Sanders, who while technically an independent is a champion of causes held dear by liberal progressive Democrats.

Pelosi radiated optimism that her party will take back the House. The group became animated talking about how Trump had given new focus to those early Tea Party goals of reclaiming government for ordinary citizens, not just the "elites" in Washington.

"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. "I was not politically aware and awake".

Country singer Lee Greenwood performed Trump favorite "God Bless the USA" in Chattanooga and was expected to appear Monday with the president in Cape Girardeau, Missouri.

The Republican has small leads among whites and other minority voters. One way to approach the strategic dispute is this: Which information is already priced into voters' calculations and which information needs to be highlighted to them to maximize votes for your side?
