Midterm elections 2018: Race rows mire campaign homestretch

US President Donald Trump has embarked on a whirlwind final push across three states to stop Democrats from breaking his Republicans' stranglehold on the US Congress in midterm elections.

Two years later, Americans are still looking for major changes, and Democrats have been able to argue that they are the outsiders, Parks said. At the extreme, there may be calls to impeach Mr Trump, as bringing formal charges against the president is a power held by the House, even though the Senate decides whether to convict. But two years after an election that proved polls and prognosticators wrong, nothing is certain on the eve of the first nationwide elections of the Trump presidency. Rasmussen points out that just before the November 2014 election, which gave the GOP control of the Senate and an increased majority in the House, the GOP's lead in the Rasmussen Congressional poll was 43%-41%. 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". "Vote for the Democrat".

Appearing before thousands in an overflowing aircraft hangar in Macon for Republican gubernatorial candidate Brian Kemp, Trump declared, "There's electricity in the air like I haven't seen since '16".

"This is a very important election", he added.

He told Sinclair Broadcasting: "I would like to have a much softer tone".

Mr. Trump, though, said he's seeing evidence of a tide breaking for Republican candidates.

But with Trump in the Oval Office, she said she felt a responsibility to fight for issues like protecting the Affordable Care Act, "which I feel very proprietary about", as well as making sure there's "a woman at the table". He received similar applause when promoting the economy, unemployment numbers and judicial appointments. "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". Hoeppner didn't respond but thought to herself that her ancestors arrived legally.

Trump spoke to reporters on a Fort Wayne airport tarmac with challenger Mike Braun, a businessman who has an ad on the air featuring Trump praising him. "Midterms are less likely to mark a major turning point for United States dollars than some investors fear", Citi analyst Todd Elmer said in a report. He wishes he could take back his vote for Trump.

President Donald Trump landed in IN for a campaign rally and took a low-key posture on the prospect of a Democratic takeover - saying he doesn't care if they try to force the release of his taxes and he'll just work "differently" if they win.

"I can tell you if we weren't contemplating at least monthly, if not more often, repealing Obamacare - then we were not doing all we could, even though there was no chance that a bill to repeal Obamacare would pass a Democratic Senate or would be signed into law by President Obama himself", Cantor says. It'll all work out but I don't think that's going to happen'.

Greg Valliere, chief global strategist at Horizon Investments, said Monday that the election's impact on markets is likely "not enormous". The Rasmussen poll found that most voters approve of President Trump's leadership; that's good news for the GOP. It's really hard to rule anything out, given we're in uncharted territory here, and that all of our previous assumptions about how these things work have been called into question. "I think that the rallies have really been the thing that's caused this whole big fervor to start and to continue", he said.

"I don't care", he told reporters as he arrived in IN for a campaign rally.

While keeping the House remained an uphill battle for the GOP, in the closing days of the campaign, Trump and Republicans have tried to sell voters on the possibilities of another two years of GOP control. In Georgia he introduced former University of Georgia football Coach Vince Dooley to address the crowd of supporters.

Greenwood's hit "God Bless the USA" has been a standard at Trump's events ever since he announced his campaign for president. "Part of it is President Trump, part of it is the fact that he has a strong economy to run on - that's unusual".

Political passions have risen to a rare peak, with early voting in some states already running far ahead of normal levels. "That was a surprise".
