What you need to know about the Pa. midterm elections

What you need to know about the Pa. midterm elections

A new poll released on the eve of the midterm elections shows Democrats with their smallest lead so far in generic congressional races.

"Markets should be braced for a divided Congress but midterms often produce surprises so global markets could be whippy around the results on Wednesday (AEDT)".

Laying into the tangled legal scandals enveloping the Trump administration - especially the possible collusion between his presidential campaign and Russian operatives - Obama scoffed, "They've racked up enough indictments to fill a football team". They'll see his approach as the only worthwhile approach to politics - they'll believe that without Trump's tweets, Republicans would have been relegated to the minority.

There are 435 people in the house, who serve two-year terms.

"If. Republicans forge new ground and pick up Senate seats, it will be on balance with the House that the president conceded last week Republicans probably wouldn't hold", Faulkner said.

And the Republicans blew it by not coming up with a repeal and replace plan.

On Monday, Facebook, NBC and even the president's favourite network, Fox News, announced they would stop broadcasting a 30-second ad paid for by his campaign. The sitting president's party often loses ground in the first midterm after winning office, and for much of 2018, voter enthusiasm and polling has favored Democrats as well. But the real variable is Mr Trump himself. That should raise a lot of questions about our elections and voting.

Perhaps the biggest wild card is how voters will react to the increasingly extreme rhetoric and politically inspired violence in the last two weeks of the campaign.

A political surrogate for Mr Gillum's white Republican rival Ron DeSantis was meanwhile accused of using a racial "dog whistle".

The president's critics say the highly charged atmosphere he has helped create made the two attackers feel sufficiently comfortable to carry out their crimes.

There's a good reason Mr Trump wants his most loyal supporters heading out to vote. The previous record, from 2010, was 450,000.

Apple unveils its most powerful Mac mini ever
NEW YORK-For the first time in four years, Apple has announced a new Mac mini, and it's a departure from its predecessor. We're still awaiting United Kingdom prices but expect the Mac Mini to be available at the same time as in the US.

Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, fighting for his political survival, spotted the wave early on, after a liberal Democrat running an anti-Trump campaign won a statewide judicial election in April.

How it would happen: Forget the polls; Democrats are favored to take back the House for more reasons than that.

Asked in an interview with Sinclair Broadcasting, one of the largest United States television station operators, if there was anything he regretted about his first two years in office, Trump said: "I would say tone".

He complained that Democrats wanted illegal immigrants to reap welfare benefits along with 'free healthcare, free education and the right to vote'.

With a characteristic mix of folksiness, bombast and sometimes cruel humour, he says voters must choose between his stewardship of a booming economy and what he claims would be the Democrats' extreme-left policies.

Obama said the country's character and its commitment to decency and equality are on the ballot on Tuesday. After every two years, one third of the Senate seats are vacated and elections held.

But analysts say a sharp rise is likely this year. More than 34 million Americans have cast their votes already. The figure in 2014 was just 27.5 million.

Julie Hoeppner, a 67-year-old psychologist in IN, voted early for Republican candidates, also citing illegal immigration as a primary concern.

However, thunderstorms are forecast for Tuesday along the eastern coast and snowstorms in the Midwest, which could put a dampener on turnout.

In the House, Democrats have candidates in 20 of the 21 open Republican seats, while the GOP has challengers in just 5 of the 12 Democratic openings.

"They key thing is the Democrats could actually shut down the confirmation process for judicial nominees, which is pretty significant".
