He seized on scenes of a caravan of Central American migrants heading through Mexico for the U.S., mused on ending the constitutional guarantee of citizenship to all people born in the United States and ran a television advertisement, deemed too provocative to air by mainstream networks, that linked Democrats to a criminal who was an undocumented immigrant.

The party needed a net gain of 23 seats to break the Republicans' eight-year hold on the House and place a check on President Donald Trump.

The president bet big on a xenophobic closing message, warning of an immigrant "invasion" that promised to spread violent crime and drugs across the nation. This will leave President Trump unable to pass key laws through the houses.

On Sunday Trump and former United States president Barack Obama made dueling election appearances, offering sharply different views on the country's problems but agreeing on the high stakes for voters in the final 48 hours of a tight campaign.

Washington After a divisive campaign marked by fierce clashes over race, immigration and other cultural issues, Americans voted on Tuesday to determine the balance of power in the US Congress and shape the future of Donald Trump's presidency.

Amid the recent rash of letter bombs and the Pittsburgh synagogue massacre, Trump issued alarming and often unfounded warnings about caravans of migrants crossing Mexico toward the US, blaming Democrats, without evidence, for the threat he claimed they pose.

"Today is more than about Democrats and Republicans".

The elections will mark the first nationwide vote since Russian Federation targeted state election systems in the 2016 USA presidential race but federal, state and local officials have sought to reassure the public that their voting systems are secure.

It was a terrible display from a side who have not won in 15 games, including five matches under Henry. Porto are on the brink of qualification from Group D after a 4-1 win at home to Lokomotiv Moscow .

Overall, 6 in 10 voters said the country was headed in the wrong direction, but roughly that same number described the national economy as excellent or good.

How close are the elections going to be?

The president found partial success despite his current job approval, set at 40 percent by Gallup, the lowest at this point of any first-term president in the modern era.

At the same time, Democrats re-elected embattled New Jersey Sen.

Meanwhile, several 2020 presidential prospects easily won re-election, including Sens.

Several ambitious Democrats easily won re-election, including presidential prospects Bernie Sanders of Vermont, Elizabeth Warren of MA and Kirsten Gillibrand of NY. Democrats are also interested in Trump's tax returns, which he has declined to make public.

He and the first lady were to host an evening watch party for family and friends.

There are also elections for 36 of the 50 state governors. Trump had been tweeting support for specific GOP candidates, even as he acknowledged potential losses by emphasizing that his focus was on the Senate.

The win was momentous for a number of reasons, not just that Democrats can now challenge Trump and the Republican party agenda. Republicans who charge that the Democratic Party has departed from its pro-Israel bona fides point to Tlaib and Omar as proof.

Trump's Republican coalition is increasingly older, whiter, more male and less likely to have a college degree.

Women voted considerably more in favor of their congressional Democratic candidate - with fewer than 4 in 10 voting for the Republican, according to VoteCast, a nationwide survey of more than 113,000 voters and about 20,000 nonvoters - conducted for The Associated Press by NORC at the University of Chicago.

In suburban areas where key House races were decided, female voters skewed significantly toward Democrats by a almost 10-point margin.

The demographic divides were coloring the political landscape in different ways. Other Democrats fighting for political survival included Missouri's Claire McCaskill, Indiana's Joe Donnelly and Bill Nelson of Florida.

As for the Senate race, despite Trump's deeply polarizing effect on voters, the GOP harnessed his rock-solid popularity with hard-right voters in rural, deep-red states.

Tuesday's contest saw several historic firsts in the Democratic camp: in Kansas Sharice Davids - an attorney and former mixed martial arts fighter - became the first Native American woman elected to Congress.

"Ever since President Trump has been in office, it has just been not the country that I am used to or that I thought I would be in", said Sarah Roth, 22, a Democratic voter from Minnetonka, Minnesota.

Trump encouraged voters to view the 2018 midterms as a referendum on his leadership, pointing proudly to the surging economy at his recent rallies. A record number of women were running for Senate, House, governorships and state legislative seats.
