Americans are preparing to vote in mid-term elections which will decide who controls the Senate and pave the way for the 2016 race for the White House.

Polling booths will open this evening Sri Lankan time.

The Republicans, who already control the House of Representatives, need to gain just six seats to take the Senate.

Meanwhile the Democrats are battling to stay ahead as President Barack Obama's approval ratings fall to the lowest they have been since he was elected.

Many analysts predict a Republican victory as Obama's popularity rate fails to climb much above 40%, despite recent improvements in the economy.
