Both parties in frenzied final push before USA elections

Lara Trump: Obama Stumping for Dems Shows 'They Must Be Pretty Scared' for Midterms

"Trump has hijacked the election". But elections also tend to reflect views of the economy, and Tuesday's provides a test of the tension between perceptions of the president and perceptions of the economy.

The poll finds that registered voters prefer Democratic candidates for the House over Republican candidates by 50 percent to 43 percent.

But voters' issue priorities are sharply divided by party.

Fierce political battles were raging in races across the nation.

But the billionaire businessman's explosive and iconoclastic personality has taken the trend to a new level.

Speaking to reporters as he left the White House en route to get-out-the-vote rallies in Georgia and Tennessee on Sunday, Trump said Republican enthusiasm is higher than he's ever seen it - but he seemed to hedge in his predictions for the House.

He visited Montana on Saturday and Tennessee on Sunday; on Monday, he'll stop in Ohio, Indiana and Missouri.

With opinion polls showing dozens of tight United States congressional and gubernatorial races in Tuesday's election, the current and former presidents said the results would determine what kind of country Americans live in for the next two years.

But in the first mid-term under Trump - an utterly unconventional president - there are many unknowns, above all the bottom-line impact of a president who has driven both supporters and foes to a rare fever pitch of emotion.

This spasm of violence fueled a debate about the president's caustic rhetoric, and whether it has played a role in deepening American divisions.

Trump plans to spend Election Day conducting get-out-the-vote interviews with local media at the White House, where he is set to watch returns come in. Just behind that, 47% each say the economy, corruption and gun policy are extremely important to their vote.

Nazis Target Oprah And Stacey Abrams In Robocalls
I am shocked!" Then Oprah got down to business, telling her "So I'm canvassing for Stacey Abrams . "I do", the woman responds. Lewis, who represents a district in the Atlanta area, was attending an event for Abrams headlined by Oprah Winfrey .

Among white college-educated women, Democrats enjoy a 28-point advantage: 61 percent to 33 percent.

Trump campaigned with Georgia Secretary of State Brian Kemp, who is in a tight and controversial race with Democrat Stacey Abrams for the governor's office.

Trump has made the caravans and illegal immigration a centerpiece of his closing argument as he tries to rally his base ahead of Tuesday's midterm elections.

It may be a logical move. While President Trump's focus on immigration has helped Republicans in some races, others fear that he has gone too far and alienated swing voters.

Trump also falsely claimed Democrats are urging "caravan after caravan" to head to the border and vaguely referenced conspiracy theories about the migrant group, saying, "Ask yourself, how do you think they formed?"

It is an arresting theme in a country that does not have a universal health coverage system.

Former president Barack Obama seized on the differences between the parties in a late scramble to motivate voters across America. Republicans wanted the focus on Trump and Brett Kavanaugh (25% in second place).

"This political stunt from Kemp just days before the election is yet another example of why he can not be trusted and should not be overseeing an election in which he is also a candidate for governor", Rebecca DeHart, executive director of the Democratic Party of Georgia, said in a statement.

"It's a lie", Obama declared on Friday.

The US economy is booming, with low unemployment rates and rising wages. But farmers themselves have suffered from retaliatory measures imposed by America's trading partners.
