'Political stunt': Obama attacks Trump's response to migrant caravan

Media more to blame for dividing US than Trump new poll suggests Reuters Eric Thayer

Republicans are entering the final days of the USA election campaign with a message they hope will win over wavering suburban voters - the economy is booming, don't let Democrats ruin it.

He falsely claimed that Democrats support allowing undocumented immigrants to vote, and complained about their focus on the Russian Federation investigation.

Democrats are focused on female and independent voters angry with Trump, minorities and young people, hoping that coalition will turn out for the Midterms and propel them to victory.

"Nothing Hoosiers heard tonight distracted them from Rep. Braun's repeated lies about his support for dismantling health care coverage for the 1.1 million Hoosiers with pre-existing conditions or how he'll help Mitch McConnell gut their Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid".

"There are states in this country, sometimes they go decades without electing a governor of a certain party, and that party that keeps losing, they nominate bad candidates", Miller said.

Trump's approval rating among likely voters was 46 percent against 45 percent in October, the poll showed.

As one of our loyal readers, we ask you to be our partner. "That's what Peter Roskam voted for".

President Trump says the Republican party is expected to "do well" in the upcoming midterms.

"This is a very, very close election, and every vote counts", he said.

Two polls released Sunday provide some evidence for Democrats' optimism about potentially winning back control of the House of Representatives.

White women with college degrees align by a 61 to 33 percent margin with Democrats.

In a tweet Saturday, Trump said the rumor is Donnelly paid for the Facebook ads.

IL sees jump in turnout for early voting
The political party numbers are broken down to: 1.29 million Republican voters and 1.23 million Democratic voters. A record number of people voted at early sites for a midterm this year.


Obama said since he left office, the Republicans have had two years of control in Washington.

"I think I've made a difference of five or six or seven". This isn't the check and balance, ' " Rogers said. Trump has also announced plans to try to end the constitutionally protected right of birthright citizenship for all children born in the U.S.

Other Republicans have joined Trump in seeking to energise the base with dark images of immigrants and references to the caravan.

US President Donald Trump arrives for a "Make America Great Again" campaign rally at McKenzie Arena, in Chattanooga, Tennessee on November 4, 2018. "The country does not support their tax package, and the country does not trust them on healthcare".

While Stewart's earlier campaigns for state-wide office fizzled out and he now trails in the polls behind the Democratic Party candidate and 2016 candidate for vice president, Tim Kaine, Trump's ascent buoyed Stewart, which is especially remarkable in a swing state like Virginia that has traditionally elected moderate Democrats or Republicans with broad appeal, such as longtime Republican Senator John Warner.

"And it seems that Mr. DeSantis and his supporters can't get my name out of their mouth enough, long enough, to talk about what they want to do proactively and affirmatively for the people in the state of Florida", Gillum said.

Among those making a closing argument is Michael Bloomberg, the former mayor of New York City. It will also air Monday on cable and broadcast networks.

"Your vote decides if Pelosi becomes speaker again", says one NRCC ad running against candidate Elissa Slotkin of MI, calling a vote for Slotkin "a vote for Pelosi agenda - for tax hikes, for amnesty, for chaos". He later added: "We don't want to go back to the Obama days".

Patrick Miller, a University of Kansas political scientist, said losing all three big races would be a big blow to Democrats' morale.

A Democratic takeover of one chamber of Congress could significantly impact Trump.

Turnout among minority voters in midterm elections has typically been low. On major issues, Manchin did join Democrats in voting against tax cuts that Trump signed into law a year ago, but he broke with his Democratic colleagues and voted for both of Trump's Supreme Court nominees: Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh.

Sen. Mark Warner, D-Va., said that even if voters are motivated by a strong economy, "many people realize we need a check on this president".
