Angry U.S. voters head to midterm polls in referendum on Trump

U.S. campaigns in high gear three days before congressional elections

The comments marked the starkest indication that Trump has grown less optimistic about the GOP's chances of retaining control of the House, where Republicans face greater headwinds than in the Senate.

He said he won't be to blame if the GOP loses the House, but analysts say the election is indeed all about him.

However, the Democrats are expected to fall short of the two seats they need to win control of the Senate.

Crist is pretty safe in his Congressional District 13 race, but Webb, Cross and Shaw are all running competitive races. Yet Democrats tempered expectations for a "blue wave", characterizing the fight for power as a block-by-block slog.

"He is trying to do what we have never seen in the modern history of this country, to do what he is doing right now, to gain votes by trying to divide the American people up based on where we came from", Sanders said on SiriusXM Progress radio.

University of Miami graduate student Maddie Kaufman, 24, said she was voting Democrat because of climate change.

The outcome has serious stakes for the president.

But if the Democrats wrest control of one or both chambers, they could stymie or even reverse Mr Trump's plans.

Nancy Pelosi, the Minority Leader of the United States House of Representatives, also agreed.

Democratic candidates for the House of Representative have raised $649m (£500m) from individual donors, more than doubling the $312m tally for the Republicans.

"The president absolutely is the focal point".

Louisiana Rep. Steve Scalise, the No. 3 House Republican leader, told NPR that fewer GOP members overall means "you don't have as many people that can just be free agents".

"The first thing [Republicans] will say the morning after the election is we are dedicated to the re-election of Donald Trump". It was a deliberate strategy to expand the playing field to about 80 districts, stretching beyond college-educated voters in the suburbs into regions where the party has seen its fortunes fade. Hundreds of millions were spent by the parties, supplemented by more money from outside groups, to frame the debate.

Republicans still had advantages in some areas, giving them hope of retaining a slim majority.

Republicans were keenly aware that losing their majority will hamstring his political agenda over the next two years.

What happens on election day?

"Democrats produce mobs. Republicans produce jobs", he told cheering supporters at his final rally. She was expected to lose to political newcomer Jennifer Wexton. Many other states on the East Coast will follow between 6am local time (11am GMT) and 7am local time (12pm GMT).

Many of the Democratic candidates have military backgrounds and emerged as formidable challengers, particularly in red-state districts where Republicans have dominated.

In Texas, early voting has exceeded the entire turnout in 2014. But Trump appears to have put his finger on a very contentious spot in the American mind-space: people are anxious that the liberalism of the Democrats may work completely against the interests of those already living in the country.

Republicans hadn't publicly given up hope Tuesday though that they could pull off a victory, and continued making their push to voters.

The final polls varied, but they were generally good for Democrats. Other seats in the state were also considered in play. The poll of likely voters found that 46% would choose the Republican candidate, while 45% would choose the Democrat. Harris was facing a stiff challenge from Marine veteran and small-businessman Dan McCready. Democrat Mikie Sherrill, a former Navy pilot and federal prosecutor, was favored for a suburban Newark seat that became open after the sudden retirement of the powerful chairman of the Appropriations Committee. One of his main concerns was abortion, legalised in the 1973 Roe v Wade verdict, which progressives fear may be overturned by a conservative Supreme Court. Majority are in Southern California, around Orange County.

"I think we're going to do well in the House", he said of Tuesday's races.
