Angry U.S. voters head to midterm polls in referendum on Trump

By and large, however, Democratic candidates and party elders such as David Axelrod, the former top campaign aide to President Barack Obama, contend that sticking to "kitchen-table" issues is a better way to win over voters than being drawn into culture wars and the swirl of controversy that Trump regularly generates.

"The only examples of a Republican President who controlled both the House and the Senate before the midterm elections, but lost control of the House, while maintaining control of the Senate, include only William Taft and Herbert Hoover", Nautilus Investment Research said in a note sent out to clients on Monday. "'Don't worry about it, I'll just figure it out.'" Bracing for defeat, he said on a conference call with supporters Monday that he wasn't sure the election could fairly be considered a referendum on him.

"This is a very important election", he added. "I would like to have a much softer tone", he said. Five of those seven seats were also held by Republicans.

The short version? If the midterms go badly for him, and Trump's party loses control of the House of Representatives, he will be left in a deeply uncomfortable position, unable to pass legislation without help from his political opponents. I don't care what they say.

"This election will decide whether we build on the extraordinary prosperity that we have unleashed", says the US President.

The comments marked the starkest indication that Trump has grown less optimistic about the GOP's chances of retaining control of the House, where Republicans face greater headwinds than in the Senate.
