It’s election eve in the U.S. but is it already game over for the Democrats?



It’s election eve in the U.S. as political heavyweights from both sides of the isle make their final pledges to voters

As election eve in America draws to a close, the Democrats are staring down the barrel of a nightmare situation.

As inflation soars and crime rates spike, voters are expected to turn away from the ruling party in droves. They are in favour change.

There were hopes the Democrats would be able to swing voters who were dissatisfied with the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v Wade.

But as a recession looms, it seems the state of the economy is now the only thing on everyone’s mind.

The Democrats are facing the risk of losing control of both the House and the Senate, leaving Capitol Hill in chaos.

But the race is not over yet.

As we know, recent polling in the United States has been anything but accurate and as election day looms, both parties are pulling out all the stops to win over every last vote.

The Democrats have been struggling with their sitting president’s low approval rating for many months now.

Biden has been rallying at the governor’s race in Maryland.

He says this election is a choice between two fundamentally different visions of America.

“This election isn’t a referendum, it’s a choice. It’s a choice between two fundamentally different visions of America.”

Tuesday’s elections represent the first nationwide test of democracy since Biden took office and Trump’s followers stormed the U.S. Capitol in protest.

Speaking of Trump, he’s been campaigning in Ohio for Republican Senate nominee JD Vance. While First lady Jill Biden is in Northern Virginia, campaigning with Democratic Representative, Jennifer Wexton

But what’s actually at stake?

All 435 seats in the House, 35 seats in the 100-member Senate, 36 state governorships, three U.S. territory governorships and a large number of city mayorships and local offices.

In a further 37 states, issues including laws on abortion, marijuana and voting rights are also up for a vote.

It follows House GOP leader Kevin McCarthy speaking exclusively to CNN as his party eyes off a red wave.

If the Republican party does win back control of the House and the Senate, McCarthy is vowing to secure the border, cut back on government spending and launch investigations into the Biden administration.

McCarthy is also optimistic about his chances of securing Speaker of the House.

McCarthy was reluctant to predict how many seats his party may pick up on election night but says “anywhere over 20 is a red wave.”

“I’ve seen more competitive race than I’ve seen in any given time. I see Democrats spending money in seats that Biden won by 20 points – New York.”

In Florida, current Senator Marco Rubio says his followers have one job to do.

“We have one job left to do and that is turn out to vote and vote in big numbers. These people don’t just need to lose, they need to lose by a lot. They need to get the message — we will never be a socialist country.”

All eyes on Pennsylvania

There’s one race which has everyone talking and that is the battle for one of Pennsylvania’s highly sought-after seats in the Senate.

Representing the Democrats is John Fetterman, a former mayor who currently serves as the state’s lieutenant governor.

In the Republican corner is Mehmet Oz, known affectionately as Doctor Oz.

He’s the Trump-backed candidate who rose to fame as Oprah Winfrey’s go-to health practitioner.

Oz says America is the land of opportunity.

“I’m not a politician. I’m a surgeon. What surgeons do is tackle big problems. We do it successfully, in my case, fixing broken hearts by working with everybody, by making sure we unify people in the operating room — not divide them. The same will work for our nation.”

Musk supports change

This comes as Elon Musk throws his support behind the Republican party.

Taking to Twitter, the platform’s new owner says “shared power curbs the worst excesses of both parties therefore I recommend voting for a Republican Congress, given that the Presidency is Democratic”.

Specialists highlight importance of water in daily routine



Staying hydrated is essential for maintaining overall health and well-being.

From regulating body temperature to aiding in digestion and nutrient absorption, water plays a crucial role in keeping our bodies functioning optimally. However, many of us often overlook the importance of staying hydrated throughout the day. Fortunately, there are simple and effective ways to incorporate more water into your daily routine.


  1. Start your day right: Begin each morning with a refreshing glass of water. After hours of sleep, your body needs hydration to kickstart its systems and replenish fluids lost overnight. This simple habit can set a positive tone for the rest of your day.
  2. Stay equipped: Invest in a reusable water bottle and carry it with you wherever you go. Having water readily available makes it easier to stay hydrated on the move, whether you’re at work, running errands, or exercising.
  3. Set reminders: In the hustle and bustle of daily life, it’s easy to forget to drink water regularly. Set reminders on your phone or computer to prompt you to take regular water breaks throughout the day. These gentle nudges can help you stay on track with your hydration goals.
  4. Make smart swaps: Replace sugary beverages like soda and juice with water during meals. Not only does this reduce your sugar intake, but it also ensures that you’re hydrating your body with the purest form of liquid it needs.
  5. Get creative with flavor: If you find plain water boring, experiment with natural flavorings like lemon, cucumber, or mint. Infusing your water with fresh fruits or herbs adds a burst of flavor without any extra calories or additives.
  6. Pre- and post-workout hydration: Before and after physical activity, be sure to drink plenty of water to support your body’s performance and recovery. Hydration is especially crucial during exercise, as you lose fluids through sweat.
  7. Keep it accessible: Make water easily accessible by keeping a pitcher or dispenser filled in your home or workplace. Having water within reach encourages you to drink more throughout the day.
  8. Eat your water: Incorporate water-rich foods like cucumbers, watermelon, and strawberries into your diet. These hydrating foods not only contribute to your daily fluid intake but also provide essential vitamins and minerals.
  9. Listen to your body: Sometimes, feelings of hunger are actually signs of dehydration. Whenever you feel hungry, try drinking a glass of water first and see if your cravings subside. Your body might just be asking for hydration rather than food.
  10. End your day on a hydrated note: Finish off your day with a glass of water before bedtime. Hydrating before sleep helps replenish fluids lost throughout the day and ensures that your body stays hydrated overnight.
