A late August Washington Post-ABC News poll also found that Democrats have a 14-point advantage over Republicans in the 2018 midterm elections.
Officials with the main House Democratic "super pac", the House Majority Fund, said their polling in August showed 17 incumbent Republicans trailing and six tied - almost enough to recapture the majority without even factoring in the open seats the G.O.P.is defending. Just 17% say it's not happening at all, as the White House has claimed in response to the op-ed (that figure rises to 27% among Republicans). In addition, the Republican plan would allow the popular, tax-free 529 college savings accounts to also be used to pay for apprenticeship fees and home schooling expenses, as well as paying off student debt. Among men, Republicans hold a slim 5-point edge.
Rather says it's hard to make early predictions on the election outcome. Strikingly, when the group this month surveyed some of the same districts where Republicans had unleashed a barrage of negative ads, they found that Democratic candidates had only slipped a little and the races remained within the polling margin of error.

What's more , insiders say there are communications between Long and a FEMA contractor that touch on possible future employment. Also at issue is Long's use of staff drivers for some of those trips back and forth, and travel expenses those aides incurred.

The National Weather Service says more than 5.4 million people live in areas now under hurricane warnings or watches on the U.S. Announcing his evacuation order, SC governor Henry McMaster said an estimated one million people would be fleeing the coast.
Nope, according to a vast majority of Americans. More, 67%, say it's critical for Congress to represent the nation's economic diversity.
Midterm elections often serve as referendums on the incumbent president, which makes Trump's overall unpopularity a liability for Republicans. Bernie Sanders over establishment favourite Hillary Clinton for the 2016 Democratic presidential nomination, but Carter added that too "liberal a program" can scare many voters. Among those who do have an opinion about each of them, the reviews are largely positive.
Importance of Iranian oil for India
USA crude rose $1.65 a barrel to $70.90 after the report was issued. "I'd say several vessels a month", he told agencies. It expects demand growth of 1.41 million barrels a day in 2019, revising downwards previous projections by 20,000 bpd.
American voters also believe by a wide-margin, 55 - 28 percent, anonymous allegations that senior aides to President Trump work behind his back to keep him from making what the aides believe are bad decisions.
