America is heading towards the final hours of campaigning for the 2016 presidential and congressional elections, and the candidates have embarked on a breathless last round of speeches and rallies to get their votes out.
The Democrat’s Hillary Clinton seems to have consolidated a poll lead, but all bets are off as to their reliability.
“The choice in this election could not be clearer. It really is a choice between division or unity, between strong and steady leadership or a loose cannon, between an economy that works for everyone not just those at the top, and an economy that is set up and run for those at the top,” she said to a crowd in Pennsylvania.
A reported surge in Latino voters may have offset an observed smaller turnout of the African-American vote for Clinton, but their influence in swing states has caused consternation in the Republican camp, and that applies also for the many Congressional races and locally elected officials being contested. The Democrats have been in a Congressional minority since 2011.
