Biden rallies union for Democrats in tight Nevada races

Biden rallies union for Democrats in tight Nevada races

Republican pollster Robert Blizzard, who worked on a congressional special election in OH in August, where Trump held a rally on the eve of voting, said he saw the president boost enthusiasm in the Republican base.

"We are looking at putting in a very major tax cut for middle-income people", Trump told reporters just before boarding Air Force One to return to the nation's capital. Despite record collections, the federal deficit still grew to the highest level in six years. Stepien said as many as 30 percent of those in attendance at these rallies either voted for the first time in 2016 or typically vote only in presidential years, which is why Trump says that while he isn't on the ballot, his policies are. It seemed reminiscent of the time a year ago 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.

Most vulnerable: a House Republican represents a district that gave President Trump less than 50% of the vote in 2016 (or a Democrat representing a district President Trump carried with an absolute majority). They are aiming to recapture control of the House, and perhaps the Senate, too.

"This is the first nationwide referendum on President Trump and an outlet for a lot of the frustration as well of the exuberance of the Trump era", Klein said. But during the last midterm elections in 2014, many Democrats stayed home and Republicans won key races across the state, which has a 29 percent Latino population.

Politico reports that the GOP has all but given up touting its tax cuts on the campaign trail, and is instead trying to rally its voters around culture war issues such as immigration and the treatment of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh during his confirmation hearing.

Another boon for Republicans is that the Democrats' lead on the midterms narrows in battleground districts.

President Donald Trump is wrapping up a visit to Western states with a campaign rally later Saturday in rural Elko, Nevada. Many forecasters believe Democrats are likely to take the House. But that dominance had been established two years earlier in the midterms of 2006, when a voter backlash against Republican president George W. Bush and the USA invasion of Iraq had first given the Democrats a sweeping victory in both houses.

It's unclear if this "Kavanaugh effect" will last until the election - and whether it will be enough to overcome the Democratic voters outraged that the allegations against the judge were dismissed with little investigation.

A person close to the president said many are expecting Trump to come up with excuses, if the GOP loses, by claiming that candidates did not tie themselves closely enough to him or to blame the media.

But they have two big advantages: they are far more trusted by voters on economic issues and voters say the economy is their top issue.

Or could this be a typical midterm with the Democrats making just modest gains?

"Democrats want America to become - it's not even they want it but that's what's going to happen - Venezuela", he said.

Overall, Democrats have a greater percentage of the popular vote in the Senate, but hold fewer seats since Republicans control states with small populations.

Before coming to Elko, he held a rally in Mesa, Arizona.
