So the conventional money is still on the Dems taking the House, barely. But this prospect seems, seems, to be diminishing. The same money sees the GOP making some small gains in the Senate.
We’ll know soon enough. It’s not like anything could happen between now and November or anything.
(From The Washington Examiner)
Ten Democratic senators are defending their seats in states President Trump won in the 2016 presidential election, and five of those lawmakers are at risk of losing to their Republican opponents, according to a new Axios poll.
Sens. Jon Tester, D-Mont., Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., Claire McCaskill, D-Miss., and Joe Donnelly, D-Ind., are the most vulnerable, and have approval ratings of about 50 percent in their respective states. Trump’s approval in these four states is well above that of these four senators.
And we have a dark horse prediction. (Well a soft prediction let’s call it.) Debbie Stabenow in Michigan has a much harder go of things than she thinks, and may even lose. (A woman Democratic senator in a purplish state she should do well this go ’round, but our spidey sense is going off on this one.) Feel free to comment with abandon if she wins by 15 points however.
