WASHINGTON (AP) — Donald Trump's rallies once were the cornerstone of an unconventional, star-powered presidential campaign that didn't rely on traditional organizing and defied every expectation.

Now they're being deployed with gusto as Trump and his team work frantically to defy polls and historic precedent and save his Republican majority in Congress in next month's elections.

Trump has been aggressively campaigning across the county to try to boost vulnerable Republicans before Election Day.

Trump's team believes his appearances fire up his loyal base, countering the wave of Democratic enthusiasm that polls suggest will lead to significant Democratic gains, especially in the House.

But after more than 350 rallies since he first began his presidential run, some things have changed.
