Pres. Trump: Republican Party Will Do Well In Upcoming Elections

GOP Congressman Rod Blum faces disenchanted voters at a town hall meeting in May

Two races which are of particular interest are Georgia, where Democrat Stacey Abrams is seeking to become the first black woman to become governor of a USA state, and Florida, where Democrat Andrew Gillum is locked in a bitter battle with Republican and Trump acolyte Ron DeSantis.

Opinion polls and election forecasters have made Democrats favourites on Tuesday to pick up the 23 seats they need to capture a majority in the US House of Representatives, which would enable them to stymie Trump's legislative agenda and investigate his administration.

Democrats also have a 51 percent to 44 percent advantage among likely voters identified by the Post. The writer, being a woman political journalist from India, now transplanted to the USA, is in a unique position to observe the three aspects that are critical to defining this presidency: chauvinism, gunslinger politics, and immigration.

Democrats increasingly confident of a House takeover acknowledged their long odds in the Senate, yet refused to wave the white flag.

But he was cautious about prospects for his chamber on Tuesday, saying, "Senate Democrats really face the toughest political map in 60 years".

"We do have a path". He appeared on Fox News Sunday. If the Democrats have to gain control, they have to win 40 seats more than what they did in the last mid-term poll in 2014. Republicans were bolstered by government figures released Friday showing strong job creation and broad-based wage gains.

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.

The GOP is facing greater headwinds in the House of Representatives. That seven-point margin, which is in line with other polls taken in the past two weeks, puts Democrats roughly within range of what they probably will need in the overall national vote for the House to capture a majority from the Republicans, based on calculations from previous midterm campaigns.

Apple Will Stop Reporting iPhone Unit Sales; Forecast Underwhelms
Representational Image: Apple Q4 2018 quarter results: Service revenues record new high. Revenue was up 20% on a year ago at $62bn while profits rose 41%.

But in what could be a sharp warning sign for Republicans, that poll reported college-educated white women - the so-called suburban moms seen as crucial to the 2018 outcome - favour Democrats by a substantial 61 per cent to 33 per cent.

In Florida and Georgia, Democrats are aiming to become the states' first African American governors.

Fifty percent of likely voters said they would prefer Democrats take control of Congress, while 43 percent opt for Republicans, a NBC News/Wall Street Journal survey says. He has claimed that he got the support of 52 percent of women in the United States in the 2016 Presidential polls, which he won against Democrat candidate Hillary Clinton and he keeps raising the pitch on how migrants provide an unsafe environment particularly for women and for the prospects of their children. "It's going to depend on voter turnout on Election Day".

Democrats face a far more hard challenge in the Senate, where they are nearly exclusively on defence in rural states where Trump remains popular.

When pressed on what Trump was doing by emphasizing Obama's middle name, Short replied: "I think we know what he's doing".

Ms. Trump, senior adviser to the president's 2020 campaign, said on Saturday that Democrats are scared because of Trump's results.

Lara Trump said Saturday on Justice with Judge Jeanine that Democrats must be fearful ahead of the midterms to have Barack Obama campaigning for them.

Most Democrats consider the Russian Federation investigation a critical part of their vote (53% say it's extremely important), but just 8% of Republicans say the same.
