Question: Working from the Master List, are you counting the GOP Holds into the GOP Gain column?
I’m not sure if you mentioned that or not. There are 9 seats on the list that are now GOP. We need to hold them, plus flip 39 currently DEM seats to achieve 218.

I'm not sure what you mean. I'm simply taking the current GOP seat count (179), and subtracting it from the probability-weighted average of the simulation, rounding it down to the lower whole seat, and calling that the GOP Gain. Whether we claim a Democrat seat but lose a GOP seat in exchange is irrelevant. I'm just showing the net result.
