Republicans are poised to make major gains and possibly recapture control of the U.S. Senate Tuesday in midterm elections that could serve as a public referendum on President Barack Obama's job performance.Republicans are expected to pick up seats in the U.S. Senate, but polls show eight to 10 races are still toss-ups and it is unclear whether they can gain the six seats they need to control the 100-member chamber for the first time since the 2006 election.Seizing the Senate would give Republicans, who are expected to build on their majority in the House, complete control of both chambers of Congress.Republican Senate Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, who polls show has a slight edge over Democratic challenger Allison Lundergan Grimes, would replace Democrat Harry Reid as Senate majority leader if Republicans win the Senate and he hangs on for re-election.
