Trump has frequently criticized Democrats as “obstructionists” and called for voters to elect more Republicans to enact his agenda. He has in recent weeks grown more visible on the campaign trail as the midterm campaign enters its final month.
While Trump has insisted a “red wave” is possible, Democrats are seeking to re-take control of the House and Senate and hold a 7.4 percentage point lead on the generic congressional ballot, according to a RealClearPolitics average of polls.
Democrats need to win 23 seats to win back the majority in the House, and need to pick up two seats to do the same in the Senate.
