Lara Trump: Vote Red to Keep President's Success Going

Polls indicated that Democrats have a good chance of winning the 23 seats they need to seize the House, while Republicans were forecast to retain the Senate or even increase their current razor-thin majority of 51-49. Also victorious was Virginia Democrat Tim Kaine, his party's vanquished 2016 vice presidential candidate, along with the party's incumbents in Connecticut, Delaware, Maryland and Rhode Island. Republicans later picked up their second Democratic Senate seat of the night when Kevin Cramer beat one Sen. Republicans now hold a 51-49 edge in Senate seats and are a strong favourite to retain control of the legislative body. Under President Dwight Eisenhower, the S&P 500 rose 29 per cent from his election in November 1952 through November 1954.

"I like to tweet about the blue wave, but I don't think the blue wave's coming", Wolf said on "America's Newsroom", predicting that if Democrats do take the House it will be by 10 seats or less.

The volatile midterm campaign was marked by clashes over race, immigration and trade.

The final weeks of the campaign season were upended when, in a shocking development, authorities intercepted potential explosive devices targeting top Democratic Party leaders, including former President Barack Obama and former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton. She ran on preventing gun violence and protecting the environment, but her main focus was on health care and the Affordable Care Act, which Curbelo voted to repeal.

President Donald Trump is deeming the election results a "tremendous success", as Republicans maintain control of the Senate but Democrats make gains in the House.

In the lead-up to the race, most analysts and polls expected Republicans to keep the Senate and lose the House.

The verdicts in the House and Senate were based on incomplete results as vote counting continued across the country and some states were still voting in a congressional election cast as an unofficial referendum on Trump.

Ahead of the results, United States stocks closed higher, with the benchmark S&P 500 Index ending the day at a two-week high. A Republican-led Senate would allow Trump's conservative remaking of the US judiciary to continue. The dollar was unchanged.

But a U.S. Department of Homeland Security official said the reports of voting technology failures appeared so far to have had no significant impact in preventing people from voting.

Six of the seven Democratic state senators unseated in the primaries were members of the now-defunct Independent Democratic Conference, a coalition of wealthy Senate Democrats.

Trump, Democrats in frenzied final push ahead of USA midterm elections
Without invoking his name, Mr Obama has accused Mr Trump of lying and "fear-mongering" and warned Democrats not to be distracted. Trump told reporters Sunday, predicting the GOP would do well in the House and "really well" in the Senate.


"The popular vote rules", she said.

Election Day saw some blatant attempts to lessen turnout with disinformation on social media, and there were glitches nationwide that could slow the vote count.

Fernando Rivera, a 53-year-old small-business owner in Miami, said he voted for all Republicans because he wants Congress to support Trump and his economic policies.

Democrats were gaining ground in the battle for House control Tuesday night, while setbacks in Indiana, Tennessee and Texas squeezed their already narrow path to a Senate majority.

If Democrats manage to win the House of Representatives, Trump would be left without congressional support to move his agenda forward. IN is Trump country (and the home state of Vice President Mike Pence), but Donnelly is slightly ahead in most recent polls.

"As president, Donald J. Trump has headlined an unprecedented 50 rallies - 30 in the last two months alone - and he has campaigned for dozens of candidates at all levels of government", White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said in a statement Tuesday evening. Perhaps more important, they would claim subpoena power to investigate Trump's personal and professional shortcomings. Much of that has gone to boost turnout among younger voters, although he has produced a nationwide advertising campaign calling for Trump's impeachment.

As he departed Washington on Monday, he said Democrats' "weak stand" on the issue "means nothing but crime". "No matter who you voted for, I'm looking forward to representing you".

Three states could elect their first African-American governors, while several others were running LGBT candidates and Muslims.

Almost 40 percent of voters cast their ballots to express opposition to the president, according to AP VoteCast, a national survey of the electorate, while one-in-four said they voted to express support for Trump.
