"You want to see Georgia prosperity end?" None of it is going to happen unless they retake the White House and they know it. "They've really become radicalized".
White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders said Trump planned to spend Election Day making phone calls and monitoring the races from the White House, and would watch the results later with family and friends.
"As president, he doesn't realize that his words weigh a ton and that they fall on some ears that may be more fragile than he might imagine", Pelosi said.
Editor's note: Men like Trump is a series of dispatches that tell of how a reckless president is steering the White House, and the manner in which his actions are fundamentally altering the office he holds.
Trump campaigned in Indiana Monday, just three days after his last visit, in a desperate effort to take down a Democratic incumbent here. "We can't have that", he said in an ABC interview.
Voting in Chicago, James Gerlock, 27, a Republican, said he wanted to see continued growth under Trump. "That said, it may be just as likely - or even more likely - that we're understating the Democrats in the House". "The contrast in this election could not be more clear".
Limbaugh said voters are "awakened" by issues such as the made-up attacks on Kavanaugh and the caravan from Honduras heading for the USA with the intention of breaking into the US illegally.
"I do eventually want to unite", Trump said in Fort Wayne, Indiana, "but I'm driving them insane".
Democrats faced a far more hard challenge in the Senate, where they were nearly exclusively on defense in rural states where Trump remains popular.

While Donald Trump is not on the ballot, the consequences for his presidency could be dramatic.
"The House has been a rubber stamp for the Trump agenda". Most of the accomplishments being touted by Trump on the campaign trail - the rising stock market, his trade war, his summit with North Korea's Kim Jong Un - have nothing to do with Congress. Like other Democrats across the country, Spanberger emphasized protecting people with pre-existing conditions from being denied coverage or charged more by insurers. Democrat and former speaker Nancy Pelosi serves as House minority leader.
Mr Trump is not on the ballot. One Trump campaign ad, playing on his fixation with a caravan of Central American migrants hundreds of kilometres away in Mexico, was deemed by a number of outlets to be too divisive - even racist - to continue airing.
An investigation into whether Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh lied under oath to get confirmed could also be launched, he said. Aides believe it to be one of the most effective arguments for bringing GOP voters to the polls. "Democrats produce mobs. Republicans produce jobs", he told cheering supporters at his final rally. "The Democrats overplayed their hand".
But as he touched down in IN for the second leg of his final-day tour, even Trump conceded that the House may slip from his party's grasp. "This will turn the tables", said Barbara Villa, 71, who with her husband planted a crop of "Vote Blue" signs outside their home. Aided by Republican retirements and an unprecedented flood of donations, majority from women, they appear to be almost guaranteed to gain at least somewhere in the mid-to-high teens.
'Something is happening. There's a lot of electricity in the air.
"This is a very important election", Trump added, emphasizing the stakes.
