Waters, who is black, doesn't have a leadership position like Schumer or Pelosi, but is nearly always mentioned in the same breath as them at Trump's rallies. Having elected someone president, Americans are collectively ready to punch him on the nose after just 24 months.
Despite consistency in the polls throughout the summer and fall, neither party is taking their chances on survey data in light of shock results from the presidential election of 2016.
Traditionally, the party of the sitting USA president loses seats in Congress in the midterm elections.
"Trump's not on the ballot, but he is on the ballot", he said at a phone-bank event to get out the vote at the local Republican headquarters. Stop watching CNN. Actually, his current 43 percent approval rating lands him squarely in the middle of the league.

Whether that would fly with Republican voters, and Mr Trump's most loyal supporters, is another argument entirely.
Democrats need a net gain of 23 seats to take control of the House.
However, the Democrats are expected to fall short of the two seats they need to win control of the Senate.
Minimum wage increases are on the ballot in two states. Since 1950, a victorious party has never trailed by more than 4.5 percent in the week of a midterm election. So if Bankrate's survey is correct, the Democrats have hope, and the Republicans should worry. Her challenger, Republican Geoff Diehl, has made an appeal for independent voters who may be turned off by Warren's blatant national ambitions.
The disagreement highlights the tug-of-war over strategy that's been dogging the GOP all year: Should Republicans prioritize turning out Trump backers, or appeal to suburban swing voters?
To their dismay, Republican candidates have found that last year's tax cuts are a vote-loser. By the end of October, immigration was consistently among the five most-searched political topics, with only a few exceptions.
While he has signed an anti-opioids bill and annual spending measures, he has yet to help broker a single piece of bipartisan legislation; for instance, he helped nix a compromise Senate immigration bill and several White House directed infrastructure weeks have produced no broad legislation.
Many analysts believe that pollsters misfired in 2016 because of "hidden" support for President Trump, and if a new Rasmussen survey is any indication, the prognosticators may be wrong again and a "silent red wave" is cresting just as Election Day arrives. True, incumbent senators from the opposition party tend to win reelection. But don't be surprised to see Mitch McConnell still in charge when all is said and done. The hearings at which Kavanaugh was confronted by his accuser, Christine Blasey Ford, backfired spectacularly as men - and many women - all over the American heartland sided with Kavanaugh.
"If they take back the House, he essentially will become a lame-duck president, and he won't win re-election", said Amy Kremer, a tea party activist who leads the group Women for Trump. Of course, there may be no stopping the polarization. The two are competing to fill the Senate seat left open by Sen.
Trump declared "the Republican agenda is the American dream" and at his final event, in Cape Girardeau, Missouri, he called on supporters to seize their "righteous destiny as Americans".
Yet there is another scenario.
"Things are pretty good, yet we have all this division and we have this president who's relatively unpopular, so we have this odd juxtaposition", said Kent State politics professor Michael Ensley, citing Trump's poor approval ratings despite a rollicking USA economy and the absence of any major foreign-policy challenges. She loathes Trump, no doubt.
President Trump shakes hands with House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy during a rally this summer. That was 10 percentage points higher than in the first survey done in 2013. Predicting what comes after Tuesday's votes are counted is a whole lot harder.
