Poll workers help voters at polling station during early voting for the midterm elections in the Lakeview Terrace neighborhood of Los Angeles, California on November 4, 2018.

Midterm elections are (finally) happening on Tuesday.

We’re watching a bunch of races: Republican Ted Cruz and Democrat Beto O’Rourke for Senate in Texas; Democrat Stacey Abrams and Republican Brian Kemp for Georgia governor; and Andrew Gillum and Ron DeSantis for Florida governor.

The president has been flying all around the country, holding rallies in support of Republican candidates. Have his efforts helped or hurt GOP candidates? And how about the efforts from Oprah Winfrey, former President Barack Obama, and other democratic surrogates?

We’re also looking at the possibility of a blue wave in the House. If the Democrats gain back the chamber, what will be some of their legislative priorities?

This hour, we take a quick look at the short time before the vote. What polls should we be looking at and when? How has the record number of early votes impacted the race? And is this really all a referendum on the presidency of Donald Trump?
