Bernie Sanders, the leftist populist who some feel would have had a better chance than Clinton to take on Trump in 2016, lashed out Monday at the president, calling him a "pathological liar". "But, in a way, actually he is".

"These midterms are incredibly significant because Donald Trump is the most polarising president in the U.S. and these midterms will decide whether or not there is a check to the Trump presidency, or whether Trump will proclaim himself vindicated and proceed unchecked for two years", says Professor Allan Lichtman from the American University in Washington DC. These 411 women, men and L.G.B.T candidates are running for the House, Senate and governorship. Days later, an avid Trump supporter was arrested for mailing pipe bombs to prominent critics of the president, all of whom Trump routinely derides as "evil" and "un-American".

Just after, a gunman walked into a Pittsburgh synagogue and shot 11 worshippers dead. And how will Democrats, if they fall short, sustain the energy from young people and women who have marched in protest of Trump, registered to vote and volunteered for the first time this election season.

He'd pulled into the parking lot minutes after the gunfire erupted, saw the police cars and shaken employees, and felt like the country's poisonous political climate had landed in his backyard. "He's just so irresponsible", said Albrecht, who worries Trump's embrace of the far-right is remaking his party. "I think there will be no difference here".

He's undecided going into Election Day.

The GOP now has 51 Senate seats compared to the Democrats' 49. Their failure to take back the Senate will mean that Republicans maintain power over nominations to powerful positions, such as cabinet posts, ambassadorships and justiceships.

"Even if I'm registering people who are going to vote for the other party, they're seeing us out here in our hats, and that's what's important, all the little interactions and conversations we're having", Kolkovich said. And Trump could set his sights on ousting Attorney General Jeff Sessions and other key figures at the Justice Department, possibly ending the department's investigation of Russia's attack on the 2016 election. Trump and his backers have called it "an invasion" - though the group of a few thousand people, including mothers and children, remains hundreds of miles away - and suggested without proof that there are criminals and terrorists in the crowd of those fleeing violence and poverty. "Democrats are inviting caravan after caravan, illegal immigrants to flood into our country".

Paul Ryan wants to reel in late deciders, Trump wants to turn out his base.

A friend recently sent Hoeppner a photo of immigrants arriving at Ellis Island with a note that said: "For our ancestors, this is their caravan".

But the energy fizzled, she said.

As the issue gained traction in the midterms campaign, Republicans furiously sought to backpedal by releasing numerous ads that claim they do want protections for pre-existing conditions after all.

I'm not a huge fan of his tweets.

Ronna McDaniel, head of the Republican National Committee, said on ABC's "This Week" program that the media had chosen to focus on Trump's immigration rhetoric but the president was also emphasizing economic and job gains under his presidency.

"When it comes to his actions, I'm not a huge fan of his tweets", Panelo said.

He continued: "I think the greatest threat to Donald Trump winning a second term, not from a named Democrat, but from a potential challenger from within the Republican Party".

He said he's felt an extraordinary level of enthusiasm for this election among his fellow students.

The polls are showing very close races for both the House and Senate heading into Tuesday's midterm elections. The president's party has lost seats in every midterm election since 1946, with just two exceptions: 1998 and 2002.

Mr Trump has faced widespread criticism for his divisive language.

Hurl noted numerous criticisms of global trade come from within the Democratic Party, but also said he thinks the USMCA deal is "relatively safe" regardless of Tuesday's outcome.
