Obama, Trump clash in final pitches to midterm voters

06 November, 2018, 00:58 | Author: Kevin Carter
  • People wait in line outside Mc Kenzie Arena in the early morning for a 7 p.m. rally by President Donald Trump Sunday Nov. 4 2018 in Chattanooga Tenn

'These are rough, rough people in many cases, and if they're allowed to break through our borders only larger and bigger -we have emboldened these people'.

He responded forcefully to Trump's rhetoric about the group of migrants, comparing it to Republicans stoking fears about Ebola prior to the 2014 midterm elections. "He's not on the ticket".

"Trump has hijacked the election".

In the House of Representatives (the Congress), elections are on for all 435 seats. But Obama made clear he wanted voters to support the Democratic Party's candidate.

Shortly afterwards a gunman killed 11 people at a synagogue in Pittsburgh.

Just as Trump and Republicans have made the caravan of Central American migrants making their way through Mexico a central talking point in the closing days of this election season, so did Obama.

"He has diarrhea of the mouth and diarrhea of the brain".

Money aside, Steyer said he and concerned voters everywhere have invested their hearts and souls into the fight to punish Trump's party. "I don't think the American public is going to put up with it". "I think the difference will be the brand of Republicans in office, because some of the more right-wing ones were" defeated in primaries.

He's undecided going into Election Day. "We are the Democratic Party", he said. Trump has also announced plans to try to end the constitutionally protected right of birthright citizenship for all children born in the US.

Tuesday's elections will also test the strength of a Trump-era political realignment defined by evolving divisions among voters by race, gender and especially education. When the votes are tallied, we won't just know the winners and losers: We'll also know whether the future of MA policy involves more wonkish fights over tax-and-transit policy, or instead revolves around Trump-favored themes like identity politics and immigration.

Julie Hoeppner, a 67-year-old psychologist in IN, voted early for Republican candidates, also citing illegal immigration as a primary concern.

How it would happen: This would be the really big wave - and it's not inconceivable. Hoeppner didn't respond but thought to herself that her ancestors arrived legally.

"Sen. Heller caved on protecting healthcare", Rosen said recently at a rally. "They didn't come trying to storm the border". They are favored to win 18 GOP seats, according to the Cook Political Report, and Republicans are favored to win two Democratic seats.

Ronna Romney McDaniel, the Republican National Committee chairwoman, on ABC's "This Week" said that Trump is 'highlighting a failure in our immigration system, that this disgusting person got into our country twice under a Democrat and a Republican president'.

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

Trump told supporters: "I didn't know Lee Greenwood would be here".

The Wesleyan Media Project, which tracks campaign ads by subject matter, said in September that the president was mentioned negatively in less than 5% of TV ads to that point - rarer than in the previous three congressional midterm elections.

Most in the party believe that the path they will go down will be the former; that they will gain a majority in the House of Representatives for the first time since former President Barack Obama's first term.

In Pittsburgh, where residents just finished burying those gunned down at the Tree of Life synagogue, some voters saw their Election Day decisions as a way to send a message that the country is headed down a dark and unsafe path. At a really in Georgia on Sunday, Trump supporters chanted "Six more years!" Obama said of Kemp, before turning to Abrams: "She is the most experienced, most qualified candidate in this".

Speaking to reporters as he left the White House en route to get-out-the-vote rallies in Georgia and Tennessee on Sunday, Trump said Republican enthusiasm is higher than he's ever seen it - but he seemed to hedge in his predictions for the House.

A week ago, Democrats held a 47% to 44% lead.
