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”.

The Great Resignation vs. The Great Burnout



As employees recover from the height of the pandemic, the Great Resignation has come to light

The pandemic saw the term ‘the great resignation’ coined as thousands of people resigned from their jobs across the U.S. in 2021 and 2022.

Karin Reed, the author of ‘Suddenly Hybrid said the great resignation was a period of employees taking control of their future.

“A lot of people realised in their current environment they were not happy with what they were doing with their job. They chose to vote with their feet and go elsewhere,

In other parts of the world, a spike in resignations was not reported.

However, a higher degree of workers began reporting post-Covid burnout, as they made a return to the office.

“There’s been a blurring of the lines. You have work that’s not confined by a physical space.

“Instead of closing the computer and walk away, our computer is in the next room.”

AI creates a song imitating Drake and The Weeknd



A big surprise for music fans when they heard a new song featuring Drake and The Weeknd. But there’s a catch!

The viral song was created by artificial intelligence.

A new song that sounds like Drake and The Weeknd has gone viral, but it was created by artificial intelligence.

Now, there’s a crusade against AI music.

The song,“Heart on My Sleeve”was created by artificial intelligence and quickly racked up millions of views on TikTok, Spotify, and YouTube.

Record label, Universal Music Group (UMG) is not happy about the song that used AI-generated vocals to simulate pop music artists Drake Graham and The Weeknd.

UMG flexed their muscle and forced the song featuring some of its biggest artists to be removed from Spotify and TikTok.

According to reports, UMG is taking it a step further and sent letters to Spotify, Apple Music, and other music streamers requesting they block AI tools from training their models on the melodies and lyrics of UMG artists.
