The 2018 marketing campaign (principally) involves an finish immediately. If the polls and our forecasts are proper, the Democrats and Republicans will every have one thing to be completely satisfied about.
Democrats are favored to take back the House, whereas Republicans are favored to take care of management of the Senate.
Our final House forecast has Democrats incomes 227 seats to the Republicans 208. That is a internet achieve of 32 seats from the 195 they maintain proper now. Democrats solely want a internet achieve of 23 to win the 218 seats obligatory for a majority.
However as we now have famous all alongside, our forecasts include a margin of error. Particularly, our 95% confidence interval finds that Democrats might win as few as 207 seats (11 in need of a majority) to as many 255.
Our final Senate forecast is one thing else altogether. It has Republicans controlling 52 seats and Democrats (and Independents who caucus with them) holding 48 seats within the subsequent Congress. If this forecast have been precisely proper, it could imply that Republicans would have a internet achieve of a seat for the reason that final Congress.
Observe: These aren’t our official projections — we’ll get to these later tonight. These are forecasts and so they’re not going to be good. Something inside the acknowledged vary might fairly occur, although we count on the consequence to be near our greatest estimate.
