Barack Obama and his Democratic Party are heading for the worst U.S. election rout in 68 years, according to the final opinion poll before today’s mid-term vote.

As the President retreated to the White House after a last-ditch campaign to round up votes, a Gallup poll gave the Republicans a massive 15-point lead.

If this prediction proves accurate, Republicans will win at least 60 extra seats in the House of Representatives. All they need is 39 seats to regain control of the 435-member Democrat-controlled House.

It would overtake the last biggest historic party swing in 1942 when the Democrats, under President Franklin D Roosevelt, lost 55 seats.

The balance of power in the 100-seat Senate is more likely to go down to the wire, but Republican leaders are confident they can win the ten extra seats they need for a majority.
