Democrats could derail Trump's legislative agenda for the next two years should they win control of the House or the Senate.

Across the country, despite Democratic gains, there were few signs of an overwhelming blue wave.

Republican Mike Braun opened an early lead in the crucial Senate showdown in IN with incumbent Democrat Joe Donnelly, but the race was too close to call with just 20 percent of the votes in. He leads her with 58 percent of the vote, but with just the early vote in. Surrounded by veterans, she repeated that her top issue is health care and protecting insurance coverage of pre-existing conditions.

"Trump is improving the economy - that's the most important thing for me", Rivera said.

By 9 p.m., we should begin to have a sense of the big picture.

"This is only just the beginning", said Schriock, president of Emily's List.

All 435 House of Representative seats are in play. Another 35 Senate seats are in play, as are nearly 40 governorships and the balance of power in virtually every state legislature. They have also talked about pushing for improvements to the Obamacare system. "It's all fragile", he said on the call.

Despite a seemingly energized grassroots electorate, the Democratic Party has been viewed as a long shot to take back control of the Senate where Republicans now hold a narrow majority of 51 seats to 49 seats for Democrats.

Trump was spending the day at the White House, tweeting support for Republicans in the toughest races and preparing to watch the results alongside friends and family, his spokeswoman said. But Pelosi brushed off such comparisons Tuesday, arguing that Clinton won the popular vote, and was handicapped by the Electoral College, which won't be a factor in House races.

The political realignment, if it solidifies, could re-shape USA politics for a generation.

"The midterm history is pretty stark in that the president's party usually loses ground in the midterms, and it is usually a question of how much ground they lose", said University of Virginia analyst Kyle Kondik. Blue-collar men, however, have embraced the unconventional president. But she lost a close race to Republican incumbent Andy Barr. "Donald Trump has the pen, and his handwriting isn't always very good".

He is more popular in IN, where 53% of voters approved and 47% disapprove, according to the exit poll data.

Democrats are drawing strength from women and college-educated voters in general, who swung decidedly against Trump since his election.

Trump's long-touted plans to build a wall on the Mexican border to prevent illegal immigration have not had funding approved by the Republican-controlled Congress and a Democratic victory in the House would further stymie the idea. McAdams believes that Democrats failed to offer an "alternative narrative" and that might hurt them at the ballot box.

Former President Barack Obama seized on the differences between the parties in a final-days scramble to motivate voters across the nation.

He added that he hopes they do legislate, but he doesn't think that is going to happen. "But it'll be a start".

With the walking caravan weeks away, Trump dispatched more than 5,000 troops to the region. He's a military veteran who prides himself on not being a career politician.

"The midterm elections used to be, like, boring", Trump told a crowd in Cleveland, Ohio, on Monday.

The outcome is clouded by the dramatically different landscape between the House and Senate.

Florida Democratic gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum walks with his wife, R. Jai Gillum, and children Caroline and Jackson as he votes, November 6, 2018, in Tallahassee, Fla.

With votes from the west coast still to be counted, Democrats had picked up 15 House seats late on Tuesday night local time.

Goodstein, however, still believes that Trump "is uniquely disfavored" and numerous voters who strongly disapprove of Trump will take to the polls, allowing the Democrats to regain the House of Representatives.

With a characteristic mix of folksiness, bombast and sometimes cruel humor, he says voters must choose between his stewardship of a booming economy and what he claims would be the Democrats' extreme-left policies.

As a result, Bloomberg's team poured money into otherwise overlooked suburban districts in states like Georgia, Washington state and Oklahoma because data revealed voters there were better-educated.

The first polls have closed in tonight's midterm elections across the United States, as long lines and malfunctioning machines marred the first hours of voting in some precincts.

Meanwhile, two of the most vulnerable Senate Democrats - North Dakota's Heidi Heitkamp and Missouri's Claire McCaskill - will be nervously waiting for the results to trickle in.

ABC News projects that the Republicans will retain majority control of the Senate, giving President Trump at least one chamber on Capitol Hill to defend his administration. "No one from outside can stir paranoia or fear that can change that".

Fox News doesn't condone Hannity appearance with Trump
At one point Trump encouraged prayers for the woman when it appeared to the President that some in the crowd were doing just that. He said that the Trump rallies convinced him that Trump would win in 2016 because he had such a great connection with voters.

He has refused to release his tax records as other politicians and presidents have, with White House aides contending he is still in the midst of what would be a lengthy IRS audit - which itself does not bar anyone from releasing tax details.
