Donald Trump’s Approval Rating at Record High, According to Poll

Schiff said Democrats must "restore Congress as an equal branch and check the ambition of an imperial and erratic president". "The likely voter model tips toward the Democrats". In 1992, after more than a decade of presidential Republican rule, Democratic contender Bill Clinton soundly defeated the Republican incumbent, George H.W. Bush. In red state Tennessee, former Democratic governor Phil Bredesen has been competitive in his race against Trump ally Rep. Marsha Blackburn, but she's probably the favorite to win.

This comes at a time when the House and Senate elections are going in totally opposite directions.

According to Fox News, "Early voting numbers show a dramatic increase in voter engagement in this year's midterm elections compared with 2014 totals, and preliminary turnout results in some states are sending Republicans renewed warnings of a so-called "blue wave" just weeks before Election Day".

Trump hopes to pick United Nations ambassador from five candidates
He added that he was now interviewing five candidates to be Washington's next ambassador to the United Nations. Last year, you went with Paul Ryan , who's a Boy Scout, which is all right, but a little boring.

These Congress elections - the Senate and the House make up Congress - are crucial for Donald Trump.

The telephone survey of 900 registered voters, conducted October 14-17, has a margin for error of 3.27 percentage points. NBC/WSJ pollsters combine information about respondents' stated interest, age and past voting behavior to create a model of the likely electorate. Democrats have a 6 in 7 chance of retaking the House. The poll shows Republicans have restored a 14 percentage point edge in districts they already control, up from just two points in August. In House districts they now hold, Democrats lead by 29 points, up from 25 in August.

"They've gone so far left, they don't know what they're talking about", says Trump, tearing into the Opposition in a new series of videos.

Anger brews in Amritsar after train tragedy
In November 2016, the Patna-Indore express derailed in Uttar Pradesh state in the middle of the night, killing 139 people. A 2012 government report described the loss of 15,000 passengers to rail accidents every year in India as a "massacre".

With an avalanche of Democratic candidates at all levels, including a historic number of women, and millions of dollars flowing into their coffers, the Democrats have aroused their base.

But the Democrats do still have a slight advantage in the polls. In the Senate, only a few seats separate the two parties, yet because of the seats being contested, the chances of a Democratic majority is slim, according to the most recent polls. To make matters worse, Republican attorneys general from 20 states, led by Texas, have asked a federal court to declare Obamacare unconstitutional, on a legal theory that practically defines chutzpah: The law is no longer viable without the individual mandate. Suburbanites split nearly evenly. The first midterm election in a president's term traditionally favors the party out of power. In addition to the White House, they hold a comfortable majority in the House of Representatives and a narrow but important edge in the Senate (51-to-49). And on Monday, former President Barack Obama is returning to Nevada, a state that he won in both his 2008 and 2012 campaigns.
