Skip to comments....Forget the House. It’s the battle for the Senate that could provide the most drama...

For months now, the focus of Campaign 2018, rightly, has been on control of the House. All the metrics continue to point to a midterm election in which Democrats could seize control of that chamber. But for sheer drama and unpredictability, the contest for control of the Senate could be the place to look.
The House is no slam-dunk for the Democrats, but most Republicans following the campaigns are genuinely worried and probably right to be that way. The overall environment is difficult for the GOP because of President Trump and because of the location of the competitive races; suburban areas as one example. There are so many Republican-held seats at risk (and very few Democratic seats in similar danger) that Democrats have multiple paths to pick up the 23 they need to flip the chamber.

The range of possibilities in the Senate is not at all the same as in the House. No one questions whether Democrats will gain seats in the House in two months. The question is how many: a few short of the 23 they need, a few more than 23 or a lot more than 23. In the Senate, Republicans could, narrowly, lose control of the chamber or they could end up bolstering their slender two-seat majority.

I honestly do not think the Republicans will lose control of either chamber
The Republicans will end up with 62 Senate seats and hold the House. Then the fireworks will really fly.
The last three times we’ve had a new President, in the first midterm, 1994, 2002, 2010; GOP gained 54, 8 and 63 House seats respectively. Libtards are going to increase turnout in cities where they win from 75% up to 85%. Who cares about that. The only way we get hurt is folks in the red areas don’t vote and let them steal a few.
If the Republicans don’t gain seats in both chambers AFTER such a miraculous recovery, then Americans don’t deserve what they’ve been given.
Be very leery of voter fraud like seen before.
“If the Republicans dont gain seats in both chambers AFTER such a miraculous recovery, then Americans dont deserve what theyve been given.”
Relentless propaganda by the compost. It never stops. Liberalism is a mental disease.
Libtards are going to increase turnout in cities where they win from 75% up to 85%. Who cares about that.
The black precincts in Philly and Cleveland will increase their turnout from 115% to 125%. Still won’t help.
what an equivocator. Forget improbable, it is mathematically impossible for Dems to make gains in the Senate. They will lose at least 5 seats
And the Trump gains? Lower unemployment, rising wages, new respect for the US, etc.
Plus, look at the leadership-less Democrats. Hillary still their standard bearer? Cheated Sanders? Senile Pelosi or Feinstein? Pochahantas? Socialist Ocasio-Cortez? Harris? Cuomo? Nixon? Spartacus Booker? Ever one of them is pushing anti-American, intolerant, bigoted platforms.
This isn't our parent's Democratic party. It is a party of screaming and entitled zealots, regularly flag-waving Americans are not invited or welcomed.
Republicans will hold both Senate and House, likely gain a few seats.
Yes! Win the Senate so we can watch Pelosi and Schumer pout for another few years.
NOTE: The fake news trying to cleverly take focus off of the fact Rs will hold the House.
And net gain 4-6 in the Senate.
Don’t trust the media or the polls.
Just vote. Let’s continue the wins.
If you can’t turn out for this economy, this foreign policy, then . . .
PASS THE WORD GOTV Talk to EVERYONE YOU KNOW
Obama on the campaign trail. Game. Set. Match.
Consider the midterms a war of good against evil. Don’t forget anything; we have to hold the Senate and House and gain extra seats! Red Wave is a must. Get out the vote as if the nation depends on it; and, IT DOES!!!
Now where did I hear something like that before???
