WASHINGTON – No one knows yet if it will be red, blue or purple, but a tidal wave of energized voters is expected to flood polling stations across the United States today as Americans deliver their early verdict on President Donald Trump.

Unlike past midterm votes and their middling level of interest, the 2018 edition has generated robust early voting turnout _ in Arizona, Nevada, Texas and Utah, the number of advance ballots already exceeds the total cast in 2014.

And while Trump’s name is not on the ballot, it seems to be on everyone’s mind _ including his own.

In a conference call organized by his campaign, he told supporters Monday to vote as if he was on the ticket, calling the election a referendum on his presidency and his movement.

During a barnstorm flurry of rallies in Ohio, Missouri and Indiana, he continued to whip up anti-immigration sentiment among his supporters, warning that Democrats would usher in an era of open borders and widespread crime.

And he also conjured up a new fear: illegal voting, warning that any such perpetrators would be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.
