U.S. midterm polls start to open: Who will control Congress?

Obama No one in my administration got indicted

Voter turnout could be the highest for a midterm election in 50 years, experts predicted.

A pre-midterms Ipsos poll for the Daily Beast found that "investigating and potentially impeaching" Mr Trump was the number one priority for self-identified Democratic voters. Most top races, however, are set in America's suburbs where more educated and affluent voters in both parties have soured on Trump's turbulent presidency, despite the strength of the national economy. Panelo, the son of a Mexican immigrant, said migrants shouldn't be demonised, but he stopped short of criticising the president, and plans to vote for Republican candidates who could help push Trump's agenda.

Trump has repeatedly ratcheted up his warnings about Democrats wanting to encourage the immigration of violent criminals and rapists.

"I'm concerned that if the election is not what we hoped for that people will say, "it's too hard" and become disengaged", said Jennifer Palmieri, who served as Clinton's communications director during the 2016 campaign. "We are not going to stand for it". Aided by Republican retirements and an unprecedented flood of donations, majority from women, they appear to be almost guaranteed to gain at least somewhere in the mid-to-high teens. He had allegedly lashed out online against Jews he accused of transporting Central American "invaders" into the United States - in language that echoed Trump's own attacks on the impoverished migrants as "an invasion".

Among some Republican voters, that message resonated.

"It will also mean that the Democrats will have the power to conduct oversight and investigations of the Trump presidency, his campaign, and the man himself, in a way that may end up being politically damaging for the president", he said.

"Well, there would be certain things", Trump answered. Maybe back in '16 during the presidential, right around the vote. We want to keep our journalism open and accessible and be able to keep providing you with news and analyses from the frontlines of Israel, the Middle East and the Jewish World. "I can't wrap my head around why the other side is so unhappy and so terrified".

Trump is not on the ballot in the midterms, in which the entire House of Representatives and a third of the Senate are up for grabs.

The symbolic news of Obama's victory, for most Americans, came at 11 p.m., yet tens of thousands of people who were elated about the history-making moment turned out to hear Obama's victory speech in Grant Park in his hometown Chicago.

"I can't stand the awful things he says and the bad things he's doing", said Bagin, who plans to vote Democratic Tuesday.

Mac Miller Tribute Concert Will Be Live Streamed
DJ Zane Lowe led a minute's silence at the concert in memory of the victims of Saturday's synagogue massacre in Pittsburgh. Miller had previously been pictured in the jumper.

The state Supreme Court in January threw out the congressional district map Republicans drew in 2011, ruling in a gerrymandering case that it was unconstitutionally drawn to give Republicans an advantage.

On the last day of the campaign, several major television networks - including NBC, CNN and Trump's favourite broadcaster Fox News - announced they had rejected an advertisement from Trump's team that portrayed immigrants as a violent threat to the US.

Others expressed a heightened sense of unease and sadness about the state of America's political climate.

President Donald Trump implored his supporters to vote on Tuesday, saying the media will treat the midterm results as a referendum on his presidency.

"We've forgotten our decency".

In suburban Chicago, Lea Grover agreed. Ensley said. "I'm torn on the answer to that question".

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.

But Wall Street strategists aren't anxious about a sell-off if the House flips blue this time around, as the change in Congress could help offset any damage caused by the trade war.

Laurel Smith, 58, who has a son with a rare genetic disorder, voted for MacArthur in 2014 and 2016 before he authored a last-minute amendment that resuscitated the repeal effort in the House in May 2017. But it will all come down to who actually shows up to vote. Now 42 and a naturalised citizen living in Omaha, Nebraska, she has always considered herself an American.

The Sinclair Broadcast Groups's Scott Thurman asked Trump if he had any regrets about his first two years in office.
