For Gregoire and Kanter - and for voters across the country - the election represents something far greater than whatever Senate and House races appear on their ballots.
Bade pointed out that, while GOP leaders have encouraged the president to steer his message towards the booming economy, Trump has been reluctant to veer away from the hardline immigration fear mongering that elevated him in 2016.
Trump flew to Fort Wayne just days after stumping in Indianapolis, where he brought along native son Vice President Mike Pence and pugnacious basketball coach Bobby Knight in an effort to unseat Donnelly.
"Democrats want to invite caravan after caravan of illegal aliens to pour into our country". "No nation can allow its borders to be overrun".
Whether they flip the House or not, Democrats are still expected to gain seats in the chamber, given the favorable political environment for Democrats.
"I feel less comfortable making a prediction today than I have in two decades", Republican pollster Frank Luntz said. "That is an invasion of our country".
Meanwhile his staff has begun preparations to deal with a flood of subpoenas that could arrive next year from Democrat-controlled committees and the White House counsel's office has been trying to attract seasoned lawyers to field oversight inquiries.
By indicating that it is time for a generational change, Pelosi effectively disqualified her top two colleagues in House Democratic leadership-Minority Whip Steny Hoyer (Md.) and Assistant Democratic Leader Jim Clyburn (S.C.), both of whom are in their late 70s-from becoming speaker.
Secondly, the surprise election of Trump in 2016 was the result of a few thousand votes being cast for him unexpectedly in Midwestern states that won him the electoral college. "They have to go out there to get a following". Politico congressional reporter Rachael Bade joined CNN'sEarly Start on Monday to break it down. "He said if the Democrats lose the House but have more total votes than the Republicans in House races, then you better batten down your house and you better protect yourself because the Democrats are gonna be loaded for bear".
Democrats also could recapture governorships in several battleground states such as Michigan, Wisconsin and OH, a potential help for the party in those states in the 2020 presidential race. Democrats were buoyed by a wave of Republican retirements and an overwhelming fundraising advantage. CBS News' current estimate is for Democrats to win 225 seats - just beyond the 218 needed for a majority - while Republicans win 210. "I think there's going to be a big backlash against Republicans because of this divisiveness".
Republicans now control 29 governorships to 21 for the Democrats. RealClearPolitics puts Trump's average approval at about 43 percent, with 53 percent disapproving.
It's being called the most important midterm election in American history. "That is particularly true when a president is unpopular, as this president is".

Democratic candidates for the House of Representative have raised $649m (£500m) from individual donors, more than doubling the $312m tally for the Republicans.
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. Much of that has gone to boost turnout among younger voters, although he has produced a nationwide advertising campaign calling for Trump's impeachment. "Anything that gets done will have to be a bipartisan basis".
President Donald Trump landed in IN for a campaign rally and took a low-key posture on the prospect of a Democratic takeover - saying he doesn't care if they try to force the release of his taxes and he'll just work "differently" if they win. There are enough budget-hawk Republicans still around in the Senate to object on principle to spending trillions of dollars on something other than the military and enough cynical Democrats in the House who are unwilling to have a hand in anything for which Trump would receive some credit, deserved or otherwise, ahead of his re-election campaign in 2020.
