New poll gives Dems smallest lead yet before midterms

The GOP went on to gain control of the Senate and increase its majority in the House of Representatives in those elections. Along with these, a host of local posts are also up for elections in various states.

Trump has delivered a very different closing argument, railing against Latin American immigrants seeking asylum at the US border. Guess who is delivering results for women in this country?

Despite their big 2016 campaign pledge, Trump and Republicans have so far failed to outright repeal Obamacare, although they have unravelled it little by little.

Trump, however, has seized this allegedly unconnected-to-the-elections caravan in his inimitable style.

Trump told supporters: "I didn't know Lee Greenwood would be here". "It has always been about securing the safety of the American people and securing our southern border". It can be considered an invasion. "We are in a battle for America's soul", Biden said in Harrisburg. And there are reports since that besides the USA army, several militia groups are headed to defend the border.

Money aside, Steyer said he and concerned voters everywhere have invested their hearts and souls into the fight to punish Trump's party. That seven-point margin, which is in line with other polls taken in the past two weeks, puts Democrats roughly within range of what they probably will need in the overall national vote for the House to capture a majority from the Republicans, based on calculations from previous midterm campaigns.

Female college graduates in well-off suburbs are in the spotlight because many are voicing disgust with Trump's aggressive rhetoric, and their votes could decide tight races in Democrats' favor. A recent NBC/Wall Street Journal poll indicated that the female support to him had gone further down to 38 percent.

Trump praised Kemp at a rally Sunday in Macon as a "strong man" and "strong personality" and says Kemp will be a great governor. His current approval rating among Republican voters has reportedly touched a whopping 89 percent. The party's 55% to 42% advantage in the new poll mirrors their lead in early October and is about the same as the 10-point edge they held just after Labor Day. The only two exceptions were Bill Clinton's Democrats during his second term in 1998, and four years later, when George W. Bush's Republicans gained seats in the aftermath of September 11.

Opinion polls and election forecasters have made Democrats favourites on Tuesday to pick up the 23 seats they need to capture a majority in the US House of Representatives, which would enable them to stymie Trump's legislative agenda and investigate his administration.

All 435 seats in the U.S. House are up for re-election. In Florida, Republican Gov. Rick Scott is also challenging Democratic Sen. "Realistically the odds are Democrats take the House and take the House narrowly".

With the election just days away as the poll was conducted, enthusiasm was up among both parties' voters, but Democrats advantage in enthusiasm narrowed to just 4 points: 68% of Democrats and Democratic-leaning independents were enthusiastic about voting, while 64% of Republicans and Republican-leaning independents said the same. 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.
