Obama, Trump clash in final pitches to midterm voters

Obama, Trump clash in final pitches to midterm voters

We looked at S&P 500 performance around the 2000 election, in the event that it is unclear who has control of the Senate and/or House after the midterm elections. The GOP could pick up from two to four seats, although the outcome could be a 50-50 Senate. Bob Corker (R-TN), who opted to not seek reelection. Florida and Georgia, meanwhile, could make history by electing their states' first black governors - and leading Democrats such as former President Barack Obama made special pitches for Andrew Gillum in Florida and Stacey Abrams in Georgia in the final days.

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.

"They want to impose socialism on our country".

US President Donald Trump arrives for a "Make America Great Again" campaign rally at McKenzie Arena, in Chattanooga, Tennessee on November 4, 2018.

The path to power in the US House of Representatives runs through barely a few dozen districts where Republicans are defending their majority and Democrats looking to flip those and get the 23 seats they would need to win control. Night after night, Trump unleashes grievances against the media, attacks his political foes, showcases his own accomplishments and promises that he alone can achieve the nation's potential.

Meanwhile, racist automated calls targeted prominent African-American candidates in Florida and Georgia.

Trump was holding his final three get-out-the-vote rallies in Fort Wayne, Indiana, and Cape Girardeau, Missouri, where he was being joined by special guest Rush Limbaugh.

After all, the party that does not control the White House nearly always picks up a slew of seats in the first midterm after a presidential election (Barack Obama's party lost 63 seats in 2010).

In a Monday tweet, he warned that law enforcement was "strongly notified to watch closely for any ILLEGAL VOTING which may take place in Tuesday's Election (or Early Voting)".

But opinion polls were wrong in 2016 and as the midterm election nears, most pundits have turned to hedging their bets.

"They've racked up enough indictments to field a football team. So I do think that a capital gains tax is a good way to work on righting that upside-down tax code, to making sure that the wealthiest one percent in our community, in our city, in our state are paying their fair share", Randall said. Heidi Heitkamp is one of the most vulnerable incumbents, with her race leaning towards her Republican opponent in a state that's otherwise very Republican-friendly. He can't remember ever voting for a Democrat but said he might this time in protest. In the Senate, Republicans could still approve federal judges and Trump Supreme Court nominees, but if they want to get any big legislation done they're going to have to negotiate with Democrats in the House, and possibly a Speaker Nancy Pelosi. "There is a lot of energy out there".

Bills' McCoy: 'We don't do nothing on offence'

The United States could trade with China
Asian stocks built on the best weekly rally since September on Friday, with South Korean and Japanese stocks leading the advance. The Trump-Xi meeting would be the first since the two countries began hitting each other with import taxes earlier this year.

Mike Tomlin on Le'Veon Bell: 'We need volunteers, not hostages'
Tomlin addressed the emergence of Conner, who has been a revelation in his second season in the NFL . Perhaps they were simply anxious that he would not report to them if they did trade for him.

The party of a first-term president tends to lose congressional seats in his first midterm.

Between Trump's "trade war", his renegotiation of worldwide treaties, robust U.S. growth and full employment, the economy is at the heart of this election.

President Trump expressed confidence Republican voters will rally to the polls on November 6 with great energy to support and advance his agenda. Compare that with 78 percent of Republican men who are registered voters. Democrats also have a 51-to- 44 percent advantage among likely voters identified by The Post.

In the 16th Congressional District, incumbent Republican Adam Kinzinger will defeat Democrat Sara Dady, 55 percent to 45 percent. But it will all come down to who actually shows up to vote.

If the Democrats win one chamber or both, Klain says, then Congress returns to being a check and balance on the president.

Republicans, trying to move past that, have been enthusiastically pressing the economic argument.

But the president - to the unease of some in the party - has instead used his almost nonstop schedule of campaign rallies to keep the spotlight on what he calls the security threat from migrants seeking to enter the USA through Mexico.

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

"So it's how high of a priorty will it be for President Trump, what is he willing to trade, and what are Democrats willing to ask for in order to give the president a victory on this particular trade deal".

Steyer insisted that most Democrats agree.
