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.

Asked about his main fear if Democrats take the House, amid forecasts of a blue wave, Trump said: 'We'll just have to work a little bit differently.

"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.

Early voting leading up to Tuesday's midterm election revealed a wide variety of concerns with voting and registration systems around the country - from machines that changed voter selections to registration forms tossed out because of clerical errors.

All 435 seats in the House of Representatives, the lower house of Congress, are up for grabs, as well as 35 seats in the 100-member Senate.

The opposite would be complete Republican control, possible given they will at least keep the Senate.

The drug remains illegal at the federal level, which is why crossing the border has become more complicated for Canadians working or partaking in the newly legalized pot industry.

Former Clinton and Obama official Kenneth Baer said they "would have an internal battle at a scale not seen since after the 1988 defeat of Michael Dukakis", when Republican presidential candidate George H.W. Bush won 40 out of 50 states. Republicans voted to confirm Justice Kavanaugh, and Mr. Trump at one point mocked the accuser during a rally. "Vote for the Democrat".

Mac Miller Died of Fentanyl, Cocaine Overdose
He had a history of drug and alcohol abuse, but his mother told investigators he had not overdosed in the past. Paramedics found Miller unresponsive in his Los Angeles home on September 7 and declared him dead soon after.

During a whirlwind six-day blitz to wrap up the campaign, Trump repeatedly raised fears about immigrants, issuing harsh warnings about a caravan of Central American migrants moving through Mexico toward the United States border.

"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. He said that enthusiasm was off the charts. Late Tuesday morning, the El Paso office for U.S. Customs and Border Protection, which oversees the Border Patrol, confirmed to CBS News that the exercise has been postponed. "I've never been so disappointed in my life".

What has President Trump being saying? He received similar applause when promoting the economy, unemployment numbers and judicial appointments. And then when they can get the real news, they're being told those are lies. The crowd responded with the chant, "Lock her up!"

Trump held the rally in Missouri to promote Hawley, who's in a neck-and-neck race with Democratic Sen.
