Democrats need to win back the Obama-Trump voter. Will they succeed?

In the battle for the Senate, Democrats are defending seats in 10 states that Trump won in the 2016 presidential election, including a handful that he won by double digits.

The latest poll was conducted between October 28 and November 1.

"It could happen", Trump said Friday about losing the House.

Trump began last week to warn that a loss might be coming, suggesting it would not be a big problem: "My whole life, you know what I say? '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. (She is now the ranking member of the House Financial Services Committee and could become chairwoman after the election.) He has previously referred to her as a "low-IQ individual" and at events the weekend before the midterm election sarcastically called her "legendary" and "genius".

A conspiracy theorist might say he sees benefit - personally, at least - in losing the House.

Trump's approval rating is also a concern for Republicans.

"We can not react to some abstract cybersecurity analysts because we do not know who they are and whether they understand anything about cybersecurity", Dmitry Peskov told reporters. Republicans are concerned about maintaining their majority in Congress over the Democrats.

There are five critical toss-up House races in California, and as the election results map unfolds through the night, there is every chance that those races could be the ones that finally decide the balance of power in the House.

The first reason is that voters seem to like divided government.

Congress has to pass legislation before it reaches the president's desk, which is why the party with a majority will be in control.

In the House of Representatives (the Congress), elections are on for all 435 seats. But Trump appears to have put his finger on a very contentious spot in the American mind-space: people are anxious that the liberalism of the Democrats may work completely against the interests of those already living in the country. It's one thing to campaign against House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., by warning that she could become speaker; it's another to do so if she is speaker. The May 2018 Voter Study Group survey found that only 41% meant to back Republicans for Congress despite their very high level of support for Trump.

Trump's even-keeled talk comes despite a feverish campaign schedule and a second trip to IN in just four days IN an all-out effort to take down Democratic Sen.

If Democrats can win over these voters and pick up three Republican-held seats, they have a chance to gain control of the Senate.

Democrats have telegraphed they will open up investigations of his administration if they take over, and even try to force the release of his tax returns, something previous presidents did voluntarily for decades. Both Trump critics and supporters are keen to make their opinions known in the polls about the controversial USA leader's first two years in office.

Last week, Democrats led by three points, 47% to 44%. "They're only going to get better", he said of the economic numbers.

This is all speculative, yes.

Democrats are getting some high-profile campaigners to help them, including former President Barack Obama, who rallied voters in his home state of IL.

Fact-checker sites state that Trump got 41 percent of the female vote in that election, though he did get 52 percent of votes from white women.

What makes it even more hard for the Democrats is the majority of the seats in these states were overwhelmingly in favour of Trump in 2016.

And even if it is not necessarily something he's aiming for, it's possible it could help him.
