WASHINGTON (AP) — Democrats could get walloped in the November elections.

That's not a hopeful prediction from Republicans. It's the dire warning of President Barack Obama as he tries to gin up enthusiasm for the midterm elections from party activists already looking toward the 2016 race to replace him.

The remainder of his presidency hangs on Democratic performance in the November contests.

His challenge is to set an agenda for a party that is not always embracing him, especially after the problems with his health care law. There are areas of the country where he can't campaign since he would only be a drag on moderate Democratic candidates.

So instead, he's trying to help Democrats by raising money and setting a national debate on economic opportunity.
