United States mid-terms: Rhetoric stepped up as campaign enters final day

United States mid-terms: Rhetoric stepped up as campaign enters final day

"That was a surprise".

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

"We have seen repeated attempts to divide us with rhetoric created to make us angry and make us fearful", the former president said in Miami. Thirty-five seats are in play in Tuesday's election.

Trump has delivered a very different closing argument, railing against Latin American immigrants seeking asylum at the US border. "I feel really good about things going into Tuesday".

There are indications that a so-called "blue wave" may help Democrats seize control of at least one chamber of United States congress.

Trump has made the caravans and illegal immigration a centerpiece of his closing argument as he tries to rally his base ahead of Tuesday's midterm elections.

He's again labeling their efforts "an invasion" and says, "We're not playing games".

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.

Trump told reporters before boarding Air Force One that "tremendous crowds" were already awaiting him in both states.

"The only check right now on the behavior of these Republicans is you and your vote".

Trump was joined by former University of Georgia football coach Vincent Dooley, who thanked the president for keeping his promises.

Donald Trump and Barack Obama have given rousing speeches as the USA enters the last day of campaigning before Americans cast their votes in the midterm elections on Tuesday.

Historically, the president's party routinely loses House seats in midterm elections.

"I can't speak to the blue, but I can speak to the red", Trump said earlier of Democrats and Republicans.

And with a Democrat-controlled House, frustration could push more zealous Trump devotees into greater extremism against their adversaries, real or imagined.

Trump will be holding rallies in Georgia and Tennessee on Sunday.

An outcome that places the House in Democratic hands would empower Congress to perform this essential function - but without much, if any, likelihood of it ending in Trump being removed from office through impeachment.

"We're not only going to hold the majority, I think we're going to add to it", Sen. He "has attracted passionate loyalty, and passionate antagonism, and hatred and love tend to drive people to the polls", Henry Olsen, a senior fellow at the Democracy Fund Voter Study Group, said. Just behind that, 47% each say the economy, corruption and gun policy are extremely important to their vote. But University of Saskatchewan public policy expert Daniel Béland, who has worked and studied in the USA, says that ostensible trade continuity may be of little reassurance to business if it merely raises the ire of Trump and his supporters. Those voters have increasingly fled Mr Trump's Republican Party, turned off by his chaotic leadership style and xenophobic rhetoric.

The comments suggest that Trump has grown less optimistic about the GOP's chances of retaining control of the House, where Republicans are facing greater headwinds than in the Senate.

Two races which are of particular interest are Georgia, where Democrat Stacey Abrams is seeking to become the first black woman to become governor of a U.S. state, and Florida, where Democrat Andrew Gillum is locked in a bitter battle with Republican and Trump acolyte Ron DeSantis.

Meanwhile, President Trump said the final sprint before the polls reminded him of the lead-up to his presidential victory in 2016.
