But as he touched down in IN for the second leg of his final-day tour, even Trump conceded that the House may slip from his party's grasp.

President Donald Trump landed in IN for a campaign rally and took a low-key posture on the prospect of a Democratic takeover - saying he doesn't care if they try to force the release of his taxes and he'll just work "differently" if they win. He added: "The Democrat agenda is a socialist nightmare". The Senate is a different matter.

However, even some Republicans became jittery after a Florida man and ardent Trump supporter was charged with sending homemade bombs to more than a dozen senior Democrats and other high profile opponents of Trump. However, not so obvious is the fact that Democrats tend to speak louder about their voting habits than Republicans do, possibly putting Republicans even higher than the Rasmussen poll indicates.

Republicans hold the slimmest of majorities there but most of the Senate seats up for grabs are already held by Democrats and they may struggle to retain all of them.

Democrats face a far more hard challenge in the Senate, where they are nearly exclusively on defense in rural states where Trump remains popular.

"It's all fragile. Everything I told you about, it can be undone and changed by the Democrats if they get in", Trump told supporters Monday during a telephone "town hall" organized by his re-election campaign.

"We'll just have to work a little bit differently", he told reporters when asked how he'd live with a Democrat-controlled chamber.

Given Trump's stunning victory in 2016, few were confident in their predictions.

"I feel, to a certain extent, I have no choice, but maybe I do, and maybe I could have been softer from that standpoint".

Voters will also cast ballots in 36 governor races and many local and state elections. "It's an awakening of the Democratic Party".

The social media company shut down 30 Facebook accounts and 85 Instagram accounts and said it was investigating them in more detail.

Democrats during the 2016 demanded Trump release his tax returns.

Voting will begin on the east coast at 11pm AEST, with early voting figures showing a huge increase in turnout since the last midterm elections in 2014.

U.S. tech companies are stepping up security and efforts to fight disinformation campaigns to prevent online troublemakers from trying to divide voters and discredit democracy. "They could only go up. but we don't know where these ballots are going".

"Everything we have achieved is at stake tomorrow", he said during a blitz of three final rallies. Two women are competing for the spot, Republican Martha McSally and Democrat Kyrsten Sinema.

She would be the first woman and first black person elected governor of Georgia, and she would be the first black woman to govern any state in the US.

The GOP now has 51 Senate seats compared to the Democrats' 49.

Sean Trende of RealClearPolitics also had some possible good news for the GOP, noting, "There really are believable scenarios that don't require Republicans to win districts that they have written off. Republicans have to catch some breaks, but they don't have to catch breaks in ways that shock and surprise us. They are lying to you". The writer, being a woman political journalist from India, now transplanted to the United States, is in a unique position to observe the three aspects that are critical to defining this presidency: chauvinism, gunslinger politics, and immigration. The demographic shifts also reflect each party's closing argument. He dispatched more than 5,000 troops to the region, suggesting soldiers would use lethal force against migrants who throw rocks, before later reversing himself. Maybe back in '16 during the presidential, right around the vote. "Health care for millions of people". "The character of our country is on the ballot", former president Barack Obama said on Twitter on Monday.

Trump was holding his final three get-out-the-vote rallies in Fort Wayne, Indiana, and Cape Girardeau, Missouri, where he was being joined by special guest Rush Limbaugh.

Trump arrived in Fort Wayne, northeast of Indianapolis, where he brought Vice President Mike Pence and hoops coach Bobby Knight on Friday in yet another effort to defeat Sen.

"He is a sexist, a racist, a homophobe, a xenophobe and a religious bigot".

U.S. midterm results are expected to come out tomorrow, after a day of feverent voting.
