Early turnout for US midterms SHATTERS records with Trump's record KEY ISSUE for voters

THE EARLY voter turnout for the US midterm elections is shattering previous records with the highest turnout in years and voters saying that Donald Trump is the main issue why.

Seven states are reporting a higher number of early votes have been cast of the upcoming election than in 2014, with the potential for more states to also reach record numbers.

With still a little more than a week until election day, Georgia, Texas, Tennessee, Nevada, Indiana, Minnesota and Delaware surpassing last midterm's voter count.

A recent USA TODAY/Suffolk University Poll, found Donald Trump has been the main reason for people making their decision on who to vote for.

According to the poll, 35 percent have said they are voting in opposition to him while 23 percent have said they are voting in support.

Of the people surveyed, only a quarter have said they are not being influenced by the President.

Trump has not been discouraged by the numbers against him and the Republicans, though.

He has been consistently campaigning for Republican Candidates throughout the country in the hopes of bolstering support.

During rallies, Trump has also said that by voting for Republicans, they are casting "a vote for me".
