Two incumbent red-state Democratic senators who have been the targets of some of President Trump's ire are facing increasingly tough odds to win re-election in November, a new poll shows, underscoring the challenges Democrats face in their bid to retake the Senate in November -- as well as Trump's continuing presence in key battleground states.
Montana Sen. Jon Tester and Missouri Sen. Claire McCaskill are locked in dead heats with their Republican challengers, according to the CBS News poll, with Tester leading Matt Rosendale by only two percentage points and McCaskill tied with Josh Hawley at 45 percent. Both results are firmly within the polls' margins of error, which are 5.2 and 3.3 percentage points respectively.

Get out there and vote, folks. It is the primary way to keep leftists at bay. We must vote out demo_rats.
True. If the GOP wins these two but loses the other three then it's a net loss in seats.
AZ&TN, are locks, expand your thinking.
Let's make the demonRATs work to keep every spot.
“GOP needs to improve numbers in AZ, TN, NV.” This is true and they will but what is more important is that you and others like you need to stop and think about why you should believe these polls when they show small leads for Republicans when Democrats have zero to offer voters. Why accept their bogus premise of close races when there is absolutely nothing but their word to support saying these races are close?
They are not. Talking about where Republicans are strong is not going to keep Republicans home; but it will help us focus on races where Republicans can actually use some help.
Everyone forgets MA. Their is a real race their Geoff Diehl vs Fauxkahauntus....
Math Major, eh?
Alabama should have been a lock. Things are weird these days. Nothing is a lock.
Trump recieved over a million votes here in MA. Clinton, 2 million...
*received, I should say
Taking both these seats would be huge.
Amazing that McCaskill could get 25% in MO.
Yup...I can’t figure that out, either. She seems to be a very unlikable person and doesn’t seem like a fit for Missouri. I don’t know enough about Hawley...is he a dud?
She squeezed by Jim Talent in 2006 - a mid-year election. She lucked out in 2012 when Todd Akin self-destructed. She’s got the pre-existing issue now with Hawley, who is keeping a very low profile. She may be unlikable but she’s also a very savvy candidate. Don’t count her out until after November 6th.
With the lack of a campaign Braun is running he may let Indiana stay D.
Nobody really knows. Hawley has run for office only once before - the Missouri AG race which is hardly one that attracts a lot of attention. Now he's in prime time and he seems to be keeping a low profile. PACs are running ads but not him. McCaskill is hammering away at the pre-existing conditions issue and he isn't responding. I'd feel better if he was a little more visible...and am a little concerned about what McCaskill might have in her back pocket that she's saving till late October.
It is my hope the people of MA will have a pivot point here, my gut tells me so...
Lot’s of bark at the moon liberals, meth heads and Gibmedats in MO.
It’s almost as if the latest Kavanaugh drama was dreamed up to stop the vote until after these fragile Democrat senators are reelected.
Corrupt and incompetent Bob Menendez is also vulnerable in New Jersey. Dems I talk to are absolutely embarrassed to “have to” vote for him - and will grab any excuse to stay home and stay out of it. Hugin is within the margin of error in some polls. Get out and vote.
