Hannity's appearance meant either Fox lied Monday about its collaboration with the Trump campaign, or that it has no control over Hannity, said Angelo Carusone, president of the liberal think tank Media Matters for America, which has unsuccessfully called for an advertiser boycott of Hannity's show in the past.

Trump lauded Pirro as "a great, great friend to all of us".

He said: "There's a woman on Saturday night that treats us very, very well".

"But it's closing with elite pundits [like Nate Silver] now hedging on whether Democrats will even take the House as Republicans are poised to perhaps increase their majority in the Senate".

On the eve of the midterm elections, Fox News host Sean Hannity promised he would not go onstage to campaign with President Donald Trump at a rally.

He pleaded with viewers to vote Republican on Tuesday to support Trump, and his opening monologue echoed a campaign slogan seen on signs at the arena: "Promises made, promises kept".

The cable news network released a statement that admitted having one of their hosts get up on stage with Trump the day before Election Day wasn't exactly journalist-y.

"Four more years! Four more years!" a raucous crowd jamming the Show Me Center in Cape Girardeau, Missouri, chanted on Monday night, just a few hours before polls opened for what may be the most significant midterm election in years.

Faced with low Republican enthusiasm, Trump is convinced that immigration will again be an animating issue for his base.

Trump has also used the confirmation battle for Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh to stir up his most loyal supporters.

In the final sprint to Election Day, Trump has pushed forward with rallies amid news events that would have halted previous leaders - holding a massive event in IL the same day a gunman massacred 11 people in a Pittsburgh synagogue.

The same soundtrack - heavy on Elton John and The Rolling Stones with a little Backstreet Boys and Rihanna thrown in - plays at the same earsplitting decibels.

It was an extraordinary scene after the news network had worked Monday to establish distance between Hannity and the campaign. Whether they tilt the balance of power in that chamber or not, Democrats are expected to at least gain seats, given the favorable political environment for the party.

Tuesday is Election Day.
