Trump To Hold Rally In Escambia County This Week

Trump To Hold Rally In Escambia County This Week

Political pundits say that the opposition Democrats are all set to regain control of the House, while Republicans will retain control the Senate, where it has a wafer-thin majority of 51-49. In the months leading up to October, Republicans have largely lagged in ballot polls until recently as voters have "come home" following the Kavanaugh allegations.

The locations of Trump's rallies are a sign that Republicans are trying to motivate conservative voters to go to the polls to support GOP gubernatorial candidate Ron DeSantis and U.S. Senate candidate Rick Scott in the November 6 elections. Democrats are motivated to vote, and they're motivated to donate, the latter level of enthusiasm the GOP has yet to match this cycle, and at this point, the money race is over.

This is enough to take 225 seats and claim a narrow majority in the House. On the other hand, we saw this story play out in 2016, where Democrats and several media outlets made similar accusations of Donald Trump sowing discourse and spewing heated rhetoric, only to go on and watch him win the Presidency.

Doug Rivers, chief scientist at YouGov global polling, said: "The chances of the Democrats winning all of those seem to me pretty slim".

Trump has remained focused on the elections, even in the wake of a series of tragedies that have stunned the nation.

She is among 10 Senate Democrats up for re-election this year in states where Trump won, and is considered among the most vulnerable incumbents.

"It's a tough environment" for Republicans, said incoming House Speaker Elijah Haahr, R-Springfield, who suggested voters in suburban St. Louis and Kansas City - and perhaps around Columbia and Springfield - might want to punish Trump's party.

Democrats can afford to spend a lot of money in close districts for the next 7 days, Republicans can't.

Some of these seats are in key swing states such as Florida and Pennsylvania.
