What’s at stake in USA midterm elections?

But James Gerlock, a 27-year-old Republican, said he was happy with the economic growth the country has seen under Trump's presidency and "just (loves) the deregulation".

"I would like to have a much softer tone".

Fox News Channel, which Trump has repeatedly named his favourite broadcaster, also said it would no longer run the spot.

Democratic Sens. Joe Manchin in West Virginia and Tammy Baldwin in Wisconsin won re-election.

"The contrast in this election could not be more clear". "That's what's happened. Republicans produce jobs".

At every rally, Trump has vowed to his chanting supporters they will "win, win, win".

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 first result would represent a rebuke to Trump's entire political approach: His failure to tame his volatile instincts in the interests of national unity and his unwillingness to embrace the presidency itself as a national trust.

Last night President Trump held his final rally of the 2018 campaign season in Missouri with conservative heavy hitters Sean Hannity, Rush Limbaugh and David Limbaugh in Missouri. Trump, however, did call Hannity to the stage.

Trump, who frequently warns of voter fraud and has asserted without evidence that millions of fraudulent votes were cast in 2016, said on Twitter on Monday that law enforcement should be on the lookout for "illegal voting".

But with turnout a key unknown factor and pollsters still unsure about the effect of Trump's maverick style on voters, both parties admit that they may be in for a surprise.

Still, he told reporters before boarding Air Force One that "tremendous crowds" were already awaiting him in both states.

Anxious Republicans privately expressed confidence in their narrow Senate majority but feared the House was slipping away. But even then, they're not foolproof, especially at describing who voted.

There were no quick victories in the closely contested open governor's races in Florida and Georgia, two Deep South states where black candidates would break barriers if they win but faced Republicans who were drawing energy from their close alignment with Trump.

A simple House majority would be enough to impeach Trump if evidence surfaces that he obstructed justice or that his 2016 campaign colluded with Russian Federation.

The midterm elections to be held on Tuesday are the first major electoral battle since U.S. President Donald Trump clinched the White House. Perhaps more important, they would claim subpoena power to investigate Trump's personal and professional shortcomings.

Likely Senate outcome: Republicans hold on to the Senate.

The Center for Responsive Politics projected that the 2018 election was, by far, the most expensive midterm election in US history. In early voting in Florida, for instance, 40.1 per cent who voted early were registered Republicans, and 40.5 per cent registered Democrats, said media reports.

Democrats boasted record diversity on ballots.

Three states could elect their first African-American governors, while several others are running LGBT candidates and Muslims. The party's task was much more hard in the Senate, where Republicans hold a narrow 51-49 majority but Democrats are defending 10 seats in states won by the president two years ago.

"You hope people are going to come down on the side of doing something about climate change, protecting the Affordable Care Act, fighting for voting rights, respecting women - these are all really pivotal areas, but who knows?" The race is considered a toss-up by many political pundits and other observers. The demographic shifts also reflect each party's closing argument.

US President Donald Trump called Nancy Pelosi to congratulate her.

Democrats, meanwhile, have beat their drum on health care. "When you vote you can be a check on bad behavior".

Republican candidate Brian Kemp and Democrat Stacey Abrams are locked in a tight race that could head to a run-off if neither wins a majority on Tuesday.

Democrats face a far more hard challenge in the Senate, where they are nearly exclusively on defense in rural states where Trump remains popular. The faith of the average American in the country's libertarian institutions has been shaken for good measure, and going by President Trump's record over the past two years, he can not evade responsibility for having precipitated the general decline as a matter of conscious policy.
