Obama, Trump clash in final pitches to midterm voters

Obama, Trump clash in final pitches to midterm voters

Obama's rally for the Democratic senator in Gary will be sandwiched between his successor's trips to the state Friday and Monday on behalf of GOP Senate candidate Mike Braun.

And they came as Trump was traveling to two traditionally Republican states to help bolster two statewide candidates ahead of elections that could dramatically reshape his presidency.

The Georgia race has garnered attention from a list of high-profile backers, including Oprah Winfrey, who campaigned for Abrams last week.

But in the first midterm under Trump - an utterly unconventional president - there are many unknowns, above all the bottom-line impact of a president who has driven both supporters and foes to a rare fever pitch of emotion.

Later in the day, the former president was campaigning in his hometown of Chicago for businessman J.B. Pritzker, Democrats' nominee for IL governor.

A second poll, by NBC and The Wall Street Journal, also showed Democrats holding the same seven-point advantage.

He took to Twitter to criticise Senator Donnelly on Saturday evening, while travelling to Florida from a rally in Montana. He said Democrats encouraged chaos at the borders because it was good politics.

Despite some challenges he faced with the US economy, he accomplished many great things by the time his term ended in January 2017, after securing a second term in 2012.

"I've been involved in scores of conversations about stopping illegal immigration from Mexico and never once has there been a discussion of the political impact in US domestic politics", Pompeo said.

'A vote for Democrats is a vote to liquidate America's borders.

But the president - to the unease of some in the party - has instead used his almost nonstop schedule of campaign rallies to keep the spotlight on what he calls the security threat from migrants seeking to enter the United States through Mexico. Trump has also announced plans to try to end the constitutionally protected right of birthright citizenship for all children born in the U.S.

Republicans are favoured to retain their slight majority in the US Senate, now at two seats, which would let them retain the power to approve US Supreme Court and other judicial nominations on straight party-line votes. Trump has seized on the nativist us-versus-them message that resonated with his base during the fiery 2016 campaign as he races across the country to secure votes, using inflammatory language as he paints a country under threat from hordes of illegal immigrants, rampant crime and far-left Democrats. "That is a great closing argument in a lot of these Houses races that are within the margin of error", RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel told ABC.

Sen. Mark Warner, D-Va., said that even if voters are motivated by a strong economy, "many people realize we need a check on this president".

"It's all about turnout", Senator Chris Van Hollen told "Fox News Sunday", as Democrats wage what polls say is an uphill battle to win control of the US Senate.

The Virginia Democrat faulted the White House for opposing an election security bill that would have ensured that every polling station had a paper ballot to audit after the election. US intelligence agencies jointly asserted last month that Russia, China, Iran and other countries are engaged in continuous efforts to influence American policy and voters in the upcoming elections and beyond.
