More than any midterm election in memory, the vote on Tuesday will be an indirect referendum on the president. Donald Trump has certainly been campaigning as if he believes his political future is at stake, barnstorming even in congressional districts where he is not always enthusiastically welcomed by the local candidate.

His opponents know their only realistic chance to curb Trump’s excesses is to win a Democratic majority in the House of Representatives. As a result, races in local districts have been driven by national political calculations and a huge influx of outside money.
