Republicans are poised to pick up seats and could win control of the U.S. Senate Tuesday in midterm elections heavily influenced by deep voter dissatisfaction with President Barack Obama's job performance.Democrats could pay the price when voters elect 36 senators, all 435 members of the House of Representatives and 36 state governors.Polls indicate Democrats have less enthusiasm for voting than Republicans, and history shows the party that is in power in the White House in midterm elections usually loses seats.In the House of Representatives, Republicans are expected to build on their majority of 233 seats to 199 for Democrats.But the heavy campaign action has been in the 100-member Senate, where Republicans need to pick up six seats to reclaim the majority from Democrats and control both chambers of Congress for the first time since the 2006 election. While Republicans are expected to gain seats, as many as eight to 10 Senate races are still considered toss-ups that could go either way.
