Ya gonna be hearing this for the next 10 months….
Democrats are in a bad place for the November midterm elections….
The latest Cook Political Report ratings for the House show Democrats defending 8 Toss Up seats in next year’s midterm elections, while Republicans are defending six Toss Ups.
However, three Democratic-held seats are now rated Lean Republican and another two are rated Likely Republican. In comparison, just one Republican-held seat is currently Lean Democrat.
Republicans need to net just five seats in take control of the House, a goal these ratings show is clearly within reach.
David Wasserman has some important caveats, including the fact that 19 states still aren’t included on this chart because they haven’t finalized district lines.
It also doesn’t include two “safe flips” from Democrat to Republican in Georgia and North Carolina redistricting.
