PELOSI'S PREDICTION: Nancy Says She's '100% SURE' Dems Will Retake the House

WASHINGTON DC Democratic Mule and Republican Elephant statues symbolize American 2-part Political system in front of Willard Hotel

For a long time there, Democrats felt good about Tennessee. "You're going to see the largest gender gap we've ever seen". In the lead-up to the election, Republicans privately expressed confidence in their narrow Senate majority but feared the House could slip away. It sounds like a tall task, but even the president admits history is on the side of the Democrats.

"Everything we have achieved is at stake", Trump declared in his final day of campaigning. 27 percent reported that they were voting to support Trump.

"In a certain way, I am on the ballot", Trump said in a conference call Monday with his supporters.

The nationwide survey indicated that almost two-thirds said Trump was a reason for their vote. "I feel confident we will win, it's just a question of the size of victory". Democrats, though, hammered him this cycle by tying him to President Donald Trump, who swooped in with a last-minute endorsement of Paulsen.

He bet big on a xenophobic closing message, warning of an immigrant "invasion" that promised to spread violent crime and drugs across the nation.

Trump has framed the elections as a choice between law and order maintained by Republicans and an out-of-control Democratic mob, while focusing heavily on hardline immigration campaign promises, including a legally dubious pledge to end birthright citizenship for the children of undocumented immigrants born in the US.

The president's current job approval, set at 40 percent by Gallup, was the lowest at this point of any first-term president in the modern era.

All 435 seats in the US House are up for re-election.

The Republican takeover of both houses of Congress in the 1994 election, two years after Bill Clinton's first presidential victory, slowed the Democratic president's legislative agenda. Even though the president won IN by 16%, Joe Donnelly was supposed to be one of the endangered candidates with a better chance to hold on.

In 1892, conservative Democrat Grover Cleveland was the first president re-elected to nonconsecutive terms. His challenger, Bob Hugin, is a former banker and business executive. What was not normal was that Menendez had been indicted on corruption charges and escaped with hung jury.

About a half-hour later, he gave GOP Rep. Peter King a shout-out.

By 11:30 p.m. Eastern, ABC was reporting Democrats had won 209 seats and Republicans 190 had been elected to the House, making it clear that there would be no "blue wave" as Democrats had been promising for months.

In south Florida, former Health and Human Services Secretary Donna Shalala defeated Republican Maria Elvira Salazar.

Nationally, polls diverged over whether the terrain has shifted for Democrats or Republicans in the final days of the 2018 election cycle.

USA midterm elections: A blue wave or a red rally?
Democrats are favored to win more House seats than they now have and they need an overall gain of 23 to retake the House majority. The election near the halfway mark of a president's first term is traditionally a referendum on the White House occupant.

OTHERS SAY: Leave the 14th Amendment alone
If a law is backed by the Constitution, then it can only be changed through a constitutional amendment. They ruled against him stating that he wasn't a citizen because he was born a slave he was property.

Studies have found voter fraud in the U.S.to be rare.

The White House has been stressing the historical headwinds it faced: In the last three decades, 2002 was the only midterm election when the party holding the White House gained Senate seats. Bernie Sanders of Vermont, Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts, Sherrod Brown of Ohio, Sen.

"Congressman Peter King of NY is a hardworking gem". Among those expected were Trump's adult children, White House aides, Republican officials and presidential friends.

He and the first lady were to host an evening watch party for family and friends.

Polls have closed in more than half of America's 50 states as voters brace for what commentators say would be a dramatic and unpredictable midterm election outcome seen as a referendum on Donald Trump's presidency. The most important advantage Republicans have is geography.

Trump bucked tradition as a candidate by not releasing his tax returns.

The Senate is expected to remain firmly in the hands of Republicans, with the oft-cited Website FiveThirtyEight predicting a 1-in-7 chance that Democrats will win the Senate.

The US Midterm Elections will be held on Tuesday, November 6 in the US, which means we'll start seeing the results trickle in on by mid-morning on Wednesday.

Trump's Republican coalition is increasingly older, whiter, more male and less likely to have a college degree.

"Many factors favor Democrats". Tuesday's results will be colored by the dramatically different landscapes in the fight for the House and Senate.

If Democrats were to win one or both houses, they could make it a lot harder for Trump to enact his agenda.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi hopes to become speaker again, though many Democratic candidates, particularly in states Trump won, said they would not support her. Pinellas County Democrats joined forces to cross campaign with Congressman Charlie Crist, Attorney General candidate Sean Shaw, Florida House District 69 candidate Jennifer Webb and Senate District 24 candidate Lindsay Cross.

Democrats boast record diversity on the ballot.
