'The hottest thing': Trump launches final day blitz on Democrats

People watch election returns in Times Square on election night in 2016. After the exit polls appeared to be significantly off in that election Fox News and the AP broke with other news organizations to start a new system. That could mean competing narra

Americans are voting in the United States midterm elections - seen as the first test of Donald Trump's presidency, even though he's not on the ballot.

It includes 35 senator positions and 36 state governors as well as all 435 members of the House of Representatives. Voters in the 18-30 age block traditionally have been less than reliable at showing up at the polls, but this time around Democrats are counting on a surge of millennials to storm the polls and ride the "blue wave" to victory. Almost one in 10 say they never had faith in democracy in the first place, and 37 percent report they once had faith but have now lost it.

The comments marked the starkest indication that Trump has grown less optimistic about the GOP's chances of retaining control of the House, where Republicans face greater headwinds than in the Senate. "However, this is an unlikely scenario".

About three quarters of the 50 states in the east and center of the country were already voting as polls began opening at 6:00 am (1100 GMT) for the day-long ballot. "While such an outcome is the consensus view, the unusually high turnout driven by highly motivated both sides of the political spectrum could produce an unpredictable result which would have significant implications for the markets". The Senate is a different matter.

A sharply divided USA electorate heads to the polls Tuesday to elect a new Congress and to render a midterm verdict on President Donald Trump. "I wouldn't say it's as important as '16, but it's right up there". Some observers have taken that as a sign that he's largely written off any hope of retaining the House.

If you like the direction that Trump has moved the country towards and want more of what you have seen over the last two years, you will vote Republican.

OneNewsNow is working alongside its sister organization, American Family Radio, to provide live election night coverage from Tim Wildmon, president of the American Family Association, and Fred Jackson, news director of American Family News, as well as other familiar AFA voices.

"The potential is tremendous unless we don't do well in the election", said Trump.

"Things are pretty good, yet we have all this division and we have this president who's relatively unpopular, so we have this odd juxtaposition", said Kent State politics professor Michael Ensley, citing Trump's poor approval ratings despite a rollicking USA economy and the absence of any major foreign-policy challenges.

USA midterm elections 2018: History against Trump ahead of crucial vote
President Trump has argued that a Democratic takeover of Congress would trigger an influx of illegal immigrants and a crime wave. He's less popular than Lyndon Johnson in 1966, Jimmy Carter in 1978, Clinton in 1994, and Barack Obama in 2010 and 2014.

"I feel less comfortable making a prediction today than I have in two decades", Republican pollster Frank Luntz said.

The Democrats need to take 23 seats from the Republicans to win control of the House, and if the polls are any guide, they should succeed.

In the upper chamber, . the Senate, there are 100 seats, with each state getting two, regardless of population. "They worked very hard to avoid what was widely viewed as the mistake of 2016, which was to be seen as too anti-Trump".

The US president has framed migrant caravans approaching through Central America as an existential crisis for country, calling it an "invasion" and dispatching more than 5,000 soldiers to the border.

The president spoke to reporters on the airport tarmac here alongside Donnelly's opponent, Republican Mike Braun, ensuring he would get his picture on TV and in the papers.

"I'm not pleased with Trump's leadership at all. You got to go out to vote". "I think he's preying upon people's fears". "Whether we consider it or not, the press is very much considering it a referendum on me and us as a movement".

"They can do whatever they want, and I can do whatever I want", the president said, according to a pool report.

The battle for Georgia governor intensified in its final hours as Abrams, the Democrat, and Republican Brian Kemp framed the race as a stark choice for the state and prepared for another month of campaigning if no one wins a majority.
