Latest polling points to high interest in midterm elections

Latest polling points to high interest in midterm elections

The President, in an effort to galvanize voters ahead of next month's midterm elections, held one of his signature Make America Great Again rallies in Elko, Nevada, where he sought to outline the differences between the GOP and Democrats, particularly on the issue of immigration. Despite record collections, the federal deficit still grew to the highest level in six years. It seemed reminiscent of the time past year when Trump cracked open the door of bipartisanship with those leaders, who emerged from a White House meeting to say Trump had agreed to work toward a deal on protection young immigrants.

Trump said this week, though, if Republicans lose the House, then he doesn't bear responsibility because he's been campaigning so hard for them.

In December, Trump signed into law the largest tax overhaul since the 1980s, which slashed the corporate rate from 35 percent to 21 percent and temporarily reduced the tax burden for most individuals as well. Dean Heller, considered the most vulnerable Republican incumbent this fall.

"Anybody who votes for a Democrat now is insane", Trump said.

Trump praised Heller for his votes for conservative Supreme Court Justices Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh.

That signals a break, at least temporarily, in recent midterm pattern of Democratic candidates suffering from sub-par turnout among sympathetic constituencies, especially Latinos and younger voters.

Sisolak, who's now the Commission Chairman of Clark County, the county that encompasses Las Vegas, faces Republican candidate Adam Laxalt, the state's attorney general.

Historically, though, a 47 percent presidential approval rating has delivered a whopping to the party occupying the White House.

Trump boasted of the size of his audience in Elko, and said Biden drew only a few hundred in Las Vegas "and he was thrilled - that's one of the biggest crowds he's ever had".

In 2006, for example, voters participated in the last midterms of the George W. Bush presidency and they punished his party severely. "So, I think by Election Day, you will see the Kavanaugh effect will produce more energy on our side".

Given the detailed criteria above, JMC is watching 153 House districts (141 held by Republicans, 12 by Democrats) - the assumption for the remaining 282 House districts is that the Trump (or Clinton) percentage is high enough for it to be extremely unlikely for any of these seats to flip.

"And unfortunately, when you look at the countries, they have not done their job", Trump added.

"I want this to be the capital of voting", Obama told the crowd.

He told supporters that he expected some backlash for referring to women as "beautiful" at another MAGA rally he held Friday in Arizona. He was in Las Vegas, at a union local, to lend his support to Heller's challenger, Rep. Jacky Rosen.

In general, the average number of seats lost in the House of Representatives by the president's party in midterms since 1910 has been about 30; in 1994, the Democrats lost 54 seats.
