Where the Midterm Race Stands Days Before U.S. Vote: Election Countdown

Donald Trump has ramped up his anti-immigration rhetoric ahead of the midterms

Swamped by a tidal wave of Democratic cash, Republicans entered the final 72 hours of the midterm campaign scrambling to preserve their slim Senate majority as a bulwark against the increasing prospect of a Democrat-run House.

The electoral map for the House is tough for the Democrats.

Democrats, who now hold six of Pennsylvania's House seats, could win at least nine, according to the University of Virginia Center for Politics, which tracks House and Senate races.

"The wage gap exists in nearly every field of work - even occupations like nursing that are historically predominantly female", she told Al Jazeera "And when women are making inroads into traditionally male-dominated professions, such as law, medicine and finance, they are still paid less".

The secretary of state said Saturday 88 percent of the 628,771 early ballots were cast in person at early voting polls. "Usually it's a relatively bipartisan issue, but it could be impacted by who wins the gubernatorial races in particular", said Capri Cafaro, executive in residence at American University's School of Public Affairs and a former state senate Democrat in OH, another signatory.

The appearance was meant to boost the campaign of Matt Rosendale, the Republican state auditor challenging Democratic U.S. Senator Jon Tester.

Eight years ago, Barack Obama was about to undergo a Republican tide at his own first mid-term elections: it was the "revolution" of the conservative trend of the Tea Party. So Democrats want to be able to exercise some control over the state-based process of drawing congressional and state legislative district boundaries - a process they've been effectively shut out of in many crucial states since their big losses in 2010.

And, if he sees - as seems likely - Republican bright spots, after a campaign where his party has mostly lined up behind him, he will surely claim credit and use the results to amplify his message.

In West Virginia, Trump campaigned for Republican Attorney General Patrick Morrisey, who is in a tight race against Democratic Sen. Republican could increase their majority to 53 or 55 seats, though the latter is the rosiest projection. The Democrats need to make a net gain of two seats in order to take control of the Senate, but the field isn't very wide for them; they're already the incumbents in three-quarters of the seats at stake.

Dropping in and out of groups will be done seamlessly so it sounds like it'll be a true drop-in drop-out kind of game. Blizzard says the game is " coming soon ", although the publisher has yet to confirm a specific release date.

In Clark County including Las Vegas, Democrats had 45 percent of the turnout to Republicans 34 percent.

Trump's campaign stops were aimed at bolstering Republicans challenging incumbent Democratic senators in West Virginia and in, states he won in the 2016 presidential election.

But after the 2016 presidential election, no one is betting too hard on conventional wisdom and polling.

Moreover, any immigration deal would have to get through the Senate.

Pollster FiveThirtyEight gives the Democrats an 85 percent chance of doing just that.

"Republicans are going to retain control of the U.S. Senate, the only question is by how much". They view Democrats eagerness to investigate the president as a blessing in disguise in the run-up to 2020. "The prospect of a Democratic controlled House or Senate puts a serious wrinkle in getting anything through Congress". They will determine not just who controls Congress, but how American politics changes after these consequential midterms. Voting will bring conclusions to the political season, but few finalities.

According to two sources close to the House Intelligence Committee, who requested anonymity to speak freely about post-election plans, Democrats plan to focus a significant amount of energy on reopening the panel's now-shuttered investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election, and whether members of the Trump campaign colluded with Moscow to tilt the race in his favour.

The ads could be an effort to divide the Republican vote ahead of an election for a Senate seat that Republicans are keen on flipping.
