Health care, immigration and economy top issues as Americans cast midterm votes

The last Rasmussen Reports poll before the election regarding the Congressional races up for grabs has good news for the GOP: The Republican Party leads the Democrats by one point. In the midterms, because there is no presidential election, there is no electoral college. So the Democrats are in the tough position of having to retain all 26 seats and add two more, if they need to wrest control and counter Trump's positions in the Senate. One polling station in Arlington still had a line past 9:00 a.m. - a time when many people would need to already be at work. Yet Democrats tempered expectations for a "blue wave", characterizing the fight for power as a block-by-block slog.

"I wouldn't like the fact that the Democrats win. because I think they'll start doing things to the president that will be sclerosis for everybody", Scaramucci says. "Whether we consider it or not, the press is very much considering it a referendum on me and us as a movement". Given the stakes for his presidency, he might as well be.

There are dozens of competitive races across the country that will determine control of the House, Senate and governors' seats.

Nate Silver's FiveThirtyEight gives Democrats an 87.8 percent chance of capturing control of the House as of this writing.

Bernie Sanders, the leftist populist who some feel would have had a better chance than Clinton to take on Trump in 2016, lashed out Monday at the president, calling him a "pathological liar".

Although voter participation has traditionally been lower in midterm elections, which are held every four years and do not change the presidency, early voting surged and voter enthusiasm was high.

What top forecasters are saying about the state of the race as voters head to the polls; will Republicans see a late surge, similar to 2016, as a result of President Donald Trump's incessant campaigning?

In Chattanooga, Tennessee, to bolster the prospects of Republican Senate candidate Marsha Blackburn, Trump once again warned that caravans of illegal immigrants are on their way to flood across the southern border. Hundreds of millions were spent by the parties, supplemented by more money from outside groups, to frame the debate.

Pelosi was speaking with reporters when she was asked if she still had a "great deal of confidence" that the Democrats will seize control of one or both Houses of Congress.

Should they take the House, Democrats are already plotting to reopen the House Intelligence Committee's investigation into Trump campaign's ties to Russian Federation.

He noted that some GOP members who faced blowback from constituents on some key agenda items opted to "vote no but hope that the bill passes".

But as he touched down in IN for the second leg of his final-day tour, even Trump conceded that the House may slip from his party's grasp.

Several districts on the East Coast with early poll closing times were among those watched Tuesday for signs of the electorate's mood.

Many of our sources on both sides seemed to think the Democratic tally would be more like +35 to 40 (or potentially even higher) when we checked in with them over the weekend.

Many Democratic candidates in tight races shied away from harsh criticism of Trump, focusing instead on bread-and-butter issues like maintaining health insurance protections for people with pre-existing medical conditions and safeguarding the Social Security retirement and Medicare healthcare programs for senior citizens. They are also poised to make history with the number of LGBT candidates and Muslims up and down the ballot.

Throughout the campaign, Trump has been tested out other explanations - pointing to historical headwinds for the party of an incumbent president and complaining about a rash of GOP retirements this year.

"I remember with [my election], this is very much a Tuesday state". Along with these, a host of local posts are also up for elections in various states.

Democrats are also expected to pick up an open seat that Clinton won in Washington state that has been held by the GOP.
