Of the 35 Senateseats that are facing polls, 26 were held by the Democrats. But if the GOP loses its majority it will need to to go on defense to protect Trump.
Many Democratic candidates in tight races shied away from harsh criticism of Trump, focusing instead on bread-and-butter issues like maintaining insurance protections for people with pre-existing medical conditions and safeguarding the Social Security retirement and Medicare healthcare programs for senior citizens.
Fact-checker sites state that Trump got 41 percent of the female vote in that election, though he did get 52 percent of votes from white women.
On Twitter, he said the vote "might be the most important of our lifetimes". "They'll be miserable because they're in the minority".
Asked about his main fear if Democrats take the House, amid forecasts of a blue wave, Trump said: 'We'll just have to work a little bit differently.
Republicans will do their best to exacerbate those divisions.

Trump, without control of Congress, could decide to triangulate.

Not to mention he has never hesitated to throw an ally under the bus, says Doug Heye, the former communications director for the RNC.
Heye says the challenge for a lot of Republicans is that what's good for GOP lawmakers on Capitol Hill and what's good for the president aren't necessarily the same thing.
"The Republican Party, first of all, is going to be the Trump party", Gingrich says.
Political observers and critics have questioned whether the national economy is in as good shape as the Trump Administration says, and while Republicans are hoping to use the economy as the foundation of their re-election message, the president has mostly preferred his recent fear-based rhetoric about Central American migrants slowly approaching the USA southern border. "And that becomes the overriding goal".
