McConnell Warns Of 'Scary Prospect' If GOP Loses Senate Control In Midterms

President Donald Trump's approval rating -41 percent - hasn't significantly changed since June.

"You can be civil but you can't overcome what they intend to do unless you win elections", she said. He said Republicans were inundated with protesters in recent weeks and had their lives disrupted.

"But what we are now seeing is that the enthusiasm and energy on the Republican side comes close to matching the Democratic side, and given the states that we're competing in, that's really good news for us", he said.

For the past few days, the liberal media has been running interference for Democrats, denying that left-wing protesters are "angry mobs" and accusing Republicans of "seizing" on the "Democrat mob" mantra for political gain.

Back in the United States, Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts has referred more than a dozen misconduct complaints against newly confirmed Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh to a circuit appeals court in Colorado.

Polls show Republicans leading in Senate races in Texas, Tennessee and North Dakota, where incumbent Democrat Heidi Heitkamp is trying to hold on in a state that went heavily for Trump in 2016.

Near 850,000 customers without power in U.S. Southeast after Michael
Michael roared ashore Wednesday as a powerful Category 4 hurricane near Mexico Beach, rendering the city almost unrecognizable. Michael is expected to dump up to 7 inches of rain in parts of North Carolina and Virginia, the NHC said.

The gulf in vote preference between men and women in generic ballot polling is broad, with women preferring Democrats and men Republicans by a wider margin than at any point in decades. Bob Corker's Memphis office talked about voting and turning back Republican majorities in Congress with the November 6 midterm general elections.

Women are said to be playing a big role in the coming elections.

Paleologos said the OH poll reflects a trend in other states: Trump's approval ratings experienced a small bump in recent weeks surrounding the Kavanaugh hearings, and Republicans will vote for him, even if they don't like some of the things he says.

"The Democrats are willing to do anything, to hurt anyone, to get the power they so desperately crave", Trump said at a rally in Minnesota last week.

The protest is the first local public protest of Kavanaugh's confirmation Saturday, Oct. 6.

"There's some things I don't like about Trump - if he would just know when to keep his mouth shut", said Mary Anne Weber, 87, of Cincinnati's College Hill neighborhood, one of those polled.

United Nations report warns of possible climate disaster by 2040
The planet is even closer to catastrophe than scientists previously predicted, according to a new report from the U.N. The report further revealed that global warming has already had an effect in regions across the world.

"I think it is possible, because whether or not you agree with Kavanaugh and where he stands on things, it's about listening to survivors and if you believe women are telling the truth", she said. A senator can not support both Mitch McConnell and President Trump.

"He is mad as a mama wasp and he is determined to get the nominations through, and I don't think he's bluffing", Kennedy said. "I don't think they'll find a basis for impeaching".

If the Democrats take the House in the midterm elections, they might start thinking about impeachment proceedings.

Christine Mulk, 64 of Columbus, also one of the ones polled, doesn't affiliate with either party. Doug Ericksen's district and the open seat in the 26th, where Democrat Emily Randall and Republican Marty McClendon are vying to replace Angel. It would be extremely hard to say that this nomination and confirmation was done with the majority of the American people in mind. "I don't like the constant lying or disrespect for women or other racial groups", Mulk said.

But it's not just Republicans who forgot (or rather deliberately chose not) to use their conscience. Murkowski is a member of the Republican Majority for Choice and in 2017 Collins received Planned Parenthood's Barry Goldwater Award, honoring "Republican lawmakers who champion reproductive health care issues".

GOP leaders blasted the Democratic proposal in advance of the vote, saying it would take away a low-priced insurance option for families who Republicans argue were hurt by the Affordable Care Act, more commonly referred to as Obamacare.
