Trump: 'I Don't Care' if House Democrats Release My Tax Returns
There are indications that a so-called "blue wave" may help Democrats seize control of at least one chamber of U.S. congress.
"If they lose this November, the civil war inside the Democratic Party is going to consume them for years and is going to make Donald Trump's re-election in 2020 a forgone conclusion", he said.
"It will also mean that the Democrats will have the power to conduct oversight and investigations of the Trump presidency, his campaign, and the man himself, in a way that may end up being politically damaging for the president", he said.
President Trump will breathe a sigh of relief if his party maintains its majority in the Senate, but losing control of the House of Representatives could create big problems for him. "However, this is an unlikely scenario".
"But now, thanks to Republican leadership, the United States has the best economy in the history of our country - and hope has finally returned to cities and towns across America". "While such an outcome is the consensus view, the unusually high turnout driven by highly motivated both sides of the political spectrum could produce an unpredictable result which would have significant implications for the markets".
With that in mind, unusually high voter turnout could be a good sign for them. The Senate is a different matter.
"But it's all fragile", President Trump warned supporters on the phone, "We have to get out, and we have to vote".
Intellectual property lawyers say trademark applications are often very broad to give the applicant the most comprehensive protection for their brand. But one factor that could complicate things for GOP leaders is that most rank-and-file lawmakers have never served in the minority and are likely to be frustrated at how little they can do to stop bills through committees or on the House floor.
"This is a president who wants this midterm to be a referendum on him, largely because he thinks his own popularity is so great that it will carry Republicans across the finish line", Hudak said.
The approach has drawn a push back from some in his party, with Paul Ryan, the top Republican in the House, reportedly urging Mr Trump to focus more on the booming USA economy, which has surpassed 3 per cent growth. Democrat Stacey Abrams is running against Republican Brian Kemp.
One killed, one missing after Amazon building collapse
Two people were killed after a wall collapsed at an Amazon distribution center as a storm rolled through the area on Friday. They were told Friday night that one person was unaccounted for after they responded to the scene.
Republicans are favoured to retain their slight majority in the U.S. Senate, now at two seats, which would let them retain the power to approve U.S. Supreme Court and other judicial nominations on straight party-line votes.
Former Clinton and Obama official Kenneth Baer said they "would have an internal battle at a scale not seen since after the 1988 defeat of Michael Dukakis", when Republican presidential candidate George H.W. Bush won 40 out of 50 states.
"The fact we still have a narrow path to a majority is a sea change from where we were two years ago", he said on ABC. Republicans now control 51 seats and hope to increase that number.
However, the polls slightly favour Democrats in both those toss-up senate races, according to the statistical analysis site FiveThirtyEight.
Trump's remarks included ominous references to the "Antifa" far-left-leaning terrorist groups and a migrant caravan marching toward the U.S. -Mexico border that he has called an "invasion".
The Republican president is the omnipresent figure as Americans render their verdict Tuesday on the past 21 months of Trumpism.
Donald Trump is an extraordinarily polarising person.
Mr Trump has also urged the electorate to turn out and vote - a message put across even more vigorously by Mr Obama.
The opposite would be complete Republican control, possible given they will at least keep the Senate. But at a rally in Cleveland later, he conceded, "In a sense, I am on the ticket".
A much smaller 23 percent said the President was why they would vote for a Republican candidate.

China to 'step up' market reforms amid USA trade war
Yet the U.S. government mostly stayed away, even though China said Trump voiced support for the expo in a call with Xi last week. Xi also took swipes at President Donald Trump, although he didn't mention the US president by name, according to Bloomberg News.
