Trump's national attention turns to state races

Trump's national attention turns to state races

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.

Asked if he was concerned Democrats would force the release of his taxes, Trump replied: 'No, I don't care.

"Everything matters and everything's at stake", Schriock said.

In the Legislature, all 203 House seats are up, along with 25 Senate seats.

While he is not on the ballot, Trump acknowledged on Monday that the 2018 midterms represent a referendum on his presidency.

'I think we're going very well in the House. "It's all fragile", he said.

Excitement is abound south of the border as Americans get set to elect new members to the Republican-controlled House of Representatives and Senate on Tuesday. Out of the 35 Senate contests Tuesday, 10 involve Democratic incumbents seeking re-election in states that Trump won big.

Pennsylvania voters are in the middle of the national political picture as they prepare to cast ballots in Tuesday's election.

Trump's Republican coalition is increasingly older, whiter, more male and less likely to have a college degree.

The political realignment, if it solidifies, could reshape United States politics for a generation. Democrats also have a 51-to- 44 percent advantage among likely voters identified by The Post.

Most polls predicted similar results, with a CNN generic ballot survey showing Democrats ahead of Republicans by 55 percent to 42 percent, and the RealClearPolitics average of generic polls showing Democrats leading with 49.7 percent compared with 42.4 percent for Republicans. The magic number is 218; win 218 seats, you've got the House. Those races have also drawn high-profile Democratic-side surrogates, including former President Barack Obama, former Vice President Joe Biden and Oprah Winfrey.

"One election won't eliminate racism, sexism or homophobia", Obama said during an appearance in Florida.

Turnovers costly in Vikings’ 30-20 loss to Saints
Last season, the Saints began to experiment with third-string quarterback Taysom Hill's versatility by letting him cover kicks. Cousins, 29, is playing his first season with a new team after six seasons in Washington, the last three as the starter.

What's more, Trump's strategy of demonizing immigrants would have worked - again.

Still, his xenophobic rhetoric has been unprecedented for an American president in the modern era: "Barbed wire used properly can be a attractive sight", Trump told voters in Montana.

The outcome is clouded by the dramatically different landscape between the House and Senate.

All of those close House races would have to tip Republicans' way, something that's very possible given the conservative lean of those districts and the distrust of the media, purposefully stoked by the president. In the past, men have outraised women among both men and women donors. "In a wave election, two things seem to happen: Independents break heavily for one party, and that party's voters are much more enthused about turning out than the other party's", wrote Kristen Soltis Anderson a few days ago.

He repeated those themes in Georgia, urging voters to "look at what is marching up - that's an invasion".

Attacks on favorite Trump foes House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and Democratic Congresswoman Maxine Waters were staples of Trump's closing message to voters, as he argued that Democrats would plunge the country into Venezuela-like chaos. "A Democratic win of 203 seats and 262 seats is within the margin of error", says the "analysis" article by Harry Enten.

EXPECT BIOTECH TO FALL If Democrats take control of the House and Republicans continue to have an edge in the Senate, UBS Wealth Management analysts say that among the areas where the president and Congress could find common ground are drug price controls and infrastructure spending; the former could pressure large pharma and even biotech stocks lower, or limit their gains, while the latter could boost those in engineering, construction and building materials.

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

"They'll do anything and everything they can to impeach him", she said. At least as far as Google search surge is concerned, Trump has succeeded already.

Liberal activist Tom Steyer spent roughly US$120 million this midterm season. Better to focus on culture-war voters who might be more willing to turn out after an emotional appeal.

Steyer insisted most Democrats agree.

"We're not some fringe element of the Democratic Party. The far left is driven by anger & hatred - we must counter it with optimism & organization", he said in a Twitter warning heard 'round the GOP.
