First, with respect to the House of Representatives, there will be a wave, and it will be shocking to our vapid punditry. The Democrats in Congress will win 73 seats in the House and will hold 266 seats, while the Republicans will hold 169 seats. The Dems will win pretty much every Lean Dem and Toss Up race, as well as several Lean R races, like PA-11 covering the area between Harrisburg and Lancaster. The Nazi, Steve King, will lose. Peter King on Long Island will get a scare, but I think he holds on.
You can zoom in and view the map here to see individual districts.
In the Senate, the Democrats will lose North Dakota, but will successfully defend every other red state seat: Tester in Montana, McCaskill in Missouri, Donnelly in Indiana, Manchin in West Virginia, Baldwin in Wisconsin, Stabenow in Michigan, Nelson in Florida, and Casey in Pennsylvania.
Democrats are going to win in Nevada and Arizona. If we stop there, then it is a 50-50 Senate that remains in Republican hands due to the tiebreaking vote of Vice President Mike Pence. But since I am predicting a wave, and since polling is showing close races in Tennessee and Texas, I am going out on a limb to predict that Dems will win in Texas and Tennessee.
Onto the Governor’s races, where the Dems are going to completely obliterate the Republicans. I was tempted to say that Democrat Paulette Jordan will win the Idaho Governor’s race, but I stepped back from the edge on that one. Still, Democrats are going to flip New Hampshire, Maine, Georgia, Florida, Ohio, Michigan, Iowa, Illinois, Wisconsin, South Dakota, Alaska, New Mexico, Kanasas, Oklahoma, and Nevada. They will successfully defend Minnesota, Colorado, Oregon and Pennsylvania.
Come back on Wednesday to mock me mercilessly for my insane and overly delusional predictions. Hell, you can get a head start if you want. But I just wanted to get my actual feelings down on digital paper so I can say I told you so later.
