Democrats move within striking range of taking the Senate, forecasts say

Democrats move within striking range of taking the Senate ...

 

 

 

"Polls look grim for Republicans. A few months ago, Democrats felt uncertain about winning, but then came the COVID-19 pandemic and the George Floyd riots. Opinions on how the administration has dealt with, and are continuing to deal with, these issues have left many disillusioned with Trump and his den of vipers."

 

 

Yeah. I couldn't have said it better myself.

 

RBG would be replaced with a Liberal judge. All liberal laws would be cemented in stone for another 20 years.

WASHINGTON — The Senate landscape has improved so much for Democrats that top party operatives are calling and texting one another to say they wish the election were held today.

Election Day is still five months away, but recent polls, fundraising deficits and other problems for Republican incumbents have diminished their prospects and opened up several possible avenues for Democrats to take control of the chamber.

"I would rather be the Democrats than Republicans right now," said Jessica Taylor, the Senate editor of the Political Report, a nonpartisan election forecaster. "Democrats have expanded the map and put Republicans on defense even in some very red states."

The stakes are enormous for the legislative agenda of the next president — a re-elected Donald Trump or apparent Democratic nominee Joe Biden, who leads in national polls and most swing states — as well as the future of the courts. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, the leader of the liberal wing, turns 88 next year, and the next Senate might get to confirm her successor.

Trump's struggles in historically Republican states, like Arizona and Georgia, are creating collateral damage for his party's Senate candidates. Public skepticism of Trump's handling of the pandemic, and Biden's expanding lead since the nationwide backlash to George Floyd's death, has put many GOP Senate candidates in a difficult position. They're forced to navigate a polarizing president whose ardent supporters they cannot afford to alienate and whose skeptics they'll likely need to attract to win.

Democrats currently have 47 seats — four short of an outright majority and three shy of a controlling number should Biden win as his vice president could cast any tie-breaking votes. They're more likely than not to lose one seat in Alabama, held by Sen. Doug Jones, but have lots of pickup opportunities. GOP-held seats in Arizona, Colorado, Maine and North Carolina are rated "toss up" by the Cook Political Report.

Republicans are defending another five seats — in Iowa, Kansas, Montana and two in Georgia — that are in play but lean GOP, while Democrats are defending a seat in Michigan, where they're favored. Of the 11 most competitive seats, Republicans are defending nine and Democrats two.

"Democrats are focused on the issues that matter to voters, including affordable health care coverage, and are reporting record-breaking grassroots support, which is how we've expanded the map and continue to move these races in our direction," she said.

Republicans, meanwhile, are hyping the Michigan race after GOP businessman and Iraq war veteran John James out-raised Democratic Sen. Gary Peters. Polls roundly show Peters leading.

Overall, the Cook Political Report's Taylor said, "Democratic challengers are by far out-raising the Republicans early on."

Four term Senator and Trump rubber stamp Susan Collins is down by 9 points in the polls to Democratic challenger Sara Gideon.  Just a few weeks ago, Collins was trailing by 2 or 3, depending on the poll.  Lead is growing, quickly.  Suze is toast.

  • Republican senators representing left-leaning states or states that are shifting demographically — Susan Collins (Maine), Cory Gardner (Colo.) and John Cornyn (Texas) — are considered among the Democrats’ clearest 2020 targets.
  • Sen. Thom Tillis (R-N.C.) is also potentially at risk after Democrats scored wins in some key state elections in 2018.
  • As Democrats from Trump-won states, Sen. Gary Peters (D-Mich.) and Sen. Doug Jones (D-Ala.) are also vulnerable.

The Senate is as important as the White House, perhaps more so.
 

It’s a figurative eternity until Election Day, however ...

Everything Maddow said for 2yrs. about the Mueller Report,........was lie.

Everything Hannity said for the same time period......was the truth.

When the Report came out, Maddow was on the edge of a nervous breakdown.

I heard that she had to go see a psychiatrist for several 'crying sessions'.                                       🥃

I proudly back BLM. They are a peaceful protest movement with an important point. Antifa is tiny. Looters are common criminals - no politics involved. 

Reps back Proud Boys and Bugaboo Bois - right wing racists and militants. Reps are ASSHOLES !!   Republicans SUCK !!

Republicans will lose in November. 

 

Cut back on the drinking, man. it’s not healthy and you’re a better man when you aren’t liquored up. 

 

I have to drink.

Just to tolerate the scumbag Dems on this site !!

That is my story..............and I am sticking to it !!                            😎...🥃

You better get your Prozac, Xanax, OxyContin, and sleep-pills all lined
