Marco Rubio Predicts Red Wave in Midterms
- Jeannie Evans
Data from Nate Silver's 538 on Monday gave Democrats an 87.5% chance of taking control of the House with Republicans being given a similar 83.2% chance of retaining control of the Senate. That narrative is based largely on national polls, and caution should be urged.
Historically, though, Republicans are more reliable voters in midterm elections. That's the beauty of campaigns and voting.
OneNewsNow.com will provide up-to-date election coverage Tuesday night after voters have their say in the nation's pivotal midterm elections.
During the campaign season, Democrats hoped to prompt a "blue wave" and flip several Republican-controlled states. "I want a free trade environment where we actually cannot only have good relationships tradewise with our friends but stand up to China", Scalise said. If Democrats succeed here (they need a total of 218 seats for a majority), they can severely restrict Trump's elbow room to act on key election promises, like the border wall, apart from being a major embarrassment to Trump.
Democratic Rep. Kirsten Sinema and Republican Rep. Martha McSally are battling to replace retiring Arizona Sen. That right there is and has been a huge flashing red light for the GOP.
Democrats saw the election in equally historic terms. The average Republican challenger in 2010 had double the campaign donations of the average Democratic challenger. And where do a lot of those women live?
"The question is whether the Democrats win control of the House by 10, 20 seats or more", veteran pollster Peter Hart told Fairfax Media.
However, even some Republicans became jittery after a Florida man and ardent Trump supporter was charged with sending homemade bombs to more than a dozen senior Democrats and other high profile opponents of Trump.
The party is also seeking redemption in the Midwest where Trump won over white, working-class voters who had backed Democrats for years.
Should President Trump's Republicans take control of both - the rest of his Presidency will be fairly smooth sailing.
Of the 35 seats up for grabs, 26 are held by Democrats and nine by Republicans.
CBS News' current estimate is for Democrats to win 225 seats - just beyond the 218 needed for a majority - while Republicans win 210.
Tuesday's results will be colored by the dramatically different landscapes in the fight for the House and Senate.

Besides this, EPCA has also warned it will ban all private transport for some time so that the pollution level could be decreased. Along with this it is also expected that till November 6, we might see a slight difference in the pollution level.
This would be a huge win for the GOP. Meanwhile, young voters and Latinos would have to stay home.
The party of a first-term president tends to lose congressional seats in off-year elections. The Affordable Care Act (aka Obamacare) would very likely be repealed once and for all. However, Trump walked away with the victory against all odds. That was rewarded, and what message would that send?
"He is putting people back to work", said retired postal worker Barbara Peacock, 58, as she leafed through Trump 2020 re-election merchandise at his rally in Macon, Georgia, on Sunday.
The latest poll was conducted between October 28 and November 1.

Webb and her friends had joined protests against Democratic then-President Barack Obama in St. Louis in 2009 that were part of a broader conservative "Tea Party" movement centered on calls for smaller government, lower taxes and fewer regulations. So is Senator Ted Cruz of Texas.
Trump's policies, he said, were making a difference for him: He said his manager at an aluminum electrical wire factory had credited Trump tariffs with raising their profits. It would have to trigger a degree of soul-searching - in at least some Republican corners.
In his speech, he made clear that while his victory signalled a change in America, much remains to be done in terms of the core issues that faced the country at the time - among them the economy, and the Iraq War.
