Democrats are taking over the Senate in 2020 if all the latest polls are counted

Electoral-vote shows Dems will pick up 5 seats, more than the 4 needed even if Trump DOES win re-election.

Plus two, other seats are tied/ too close to call. Plus, Democrats are kicking Republican Senators' asses in fundraising.

The polls have shown this consistently for 2 years — the pandemic and Republican ineptitude is just giving the Democrats a bigger margin of victory.

So don't let the "43% chance" Fake News Troll fool you. Republicans are going STRAIGHT DOWN THE SHITTER in 2020.

We need a minimum of 5 pickups to get to 51 seats and avoid a tie in the Senate, because we’re almost certainly losing that seat in Alabama. I hope it’s a bloodbath and we pick up at least 8 seats.

The race for the Senate will be close.

Right now Democrats are maintaining consistent leads in Colorado and Arizona, which probably remain the 2 biggest pickup opportunities.

After CO & AZ, it's hard to know which is the next best pickup opportunity. The race in Maine between Sara Gideon and Susan Collins will probably go down to the wire in November, as will the Senate races in Iowa and Montana. The next best opportunity after CO & AZ may now be North Carolina, where Democratic nominee Cunninghham is consistently placing ahead of GOP Senator Tillis in the polling, so that is one to watch.

Dems also have a chance in Georgia with DL fave Jon Ossoff, but Perdue (R) probably remains the slight favorite.

Democrats, what the hell are we doing about our horrible new voter trump registration numbers? With only two months to get people to registered.

Late last month, the Democratic data firm TargetSmart found that while new voter registrations had plummeted amid the coronavirus pandemic, those who were registering in competitive states tended to be whiter, older and less Democratic than before. When he saw the numbers, Ben Wessel, executive director of NextGen America, said he "got nervous," and other Democratic-leaning groups felt the same. The report seemed to confirm what state elections officials and voter registration groups had been seeing in the field for weeks: Neither Democrats nor Republicans had been registering many voters during the pandemic. But Democrats were suffering disproportionately from the slowdown.

Last month in Iowa, where the race between Trump and Joe Biden is surprisingly close, Republicans nosed back ahead of Democrats in active registrations after ceding the lead to Democrats for the first time in years.

“In some states, before the pandemic, you were seeing a net edge for Democrats,” said Page Gardner, founder and president of the Voter Participation Center, which works to register young people, people of color and unmarried women.

Now, she said, “in some states … the advantage has shrunk substantially.”

For months last year and in early 2020, Democrats had been registering voters at a faster clip than Republicans in many competitive states that register by party, including Iowa, Florida, Maine, New Hampshire, Arizona and Nevada. That was in part a function of the Democratic Party’s competitive presidential primary, and in part a reflection of animosity toward Trump. But the effect of the pandemic on voter registrations was severe. Department of moter vehicles closures, stay-at-home orders and restrictions on large gatherings limited opportunities for new registrations. In a report on the decline last month, the nonpartisan Center for Election Innovation & Research concluded that “the steep decline in new registrations may prove to be a sizable obstacle to what was set, pre-pandemic, to be a record election for turnout.”

People need to be watching Kansas, believe it or not. There hasn't been a Democratic senator since the 1930s, but, especially if Kris Kobach wins the primary next Tuesday, there really is a shot the Democrat could win. She is a doctor and has big financial backing from the wealthy Kansas City suburbs and Kobach is pretty hated. Kansans are a pragmatic bunch, even if they have been raised on Republicanism since childhood, but it's a long way from the rabid, racist flavor of Republicanism found in the South.

Will inspire others to wake up at 3 AM to stand in line to vote him out if necessary.

That's good for scum like McConnell, r231.

But impeachment won't apply once Trump, Barr, Kushner, etc. are out of office. That's why Biden should appoint an F.B.I. task force to go after the criminal scum.

If we don't prosecute these crooks, they'll just do it again and Republicans will think they can break the law and do whatever they want again.

Trump was not prepared for the universal and rapid shift to Vote By Mail.

Putin had already seeded the necessary malware into the voting MACHINES in key states and counties over the past three years.

The shift to VBM had to be countered so targeted postal markets WHERE THE VOTING MACHINES would be cancelled still flipped results to Trump.

Delete the west coast Macguffins and areas that Trump's USPS Postmaster removed and slowed down mail IS WHERE THE BAD VOTING MACHINES ARE.

The SoSs of those states where the mail is being fucked need to pull a few machines and have their coding gone over by CrowdStrike. The firm the Russians/Trump hate.

And just because the Constitution works unjustly today or yesterday doesn't mean it has to forever. Your circular reasoning is naive and moronic. The Constitution also allows for reform and amendments so We the People can improve it as much as we want to, whenever we want to.

I know a lot more about the Constitution and U.S. history than you're briefed at the Russian troll farm and Thomas Jefferson said we need a revolution every 20 years.

So don't condescend to teach me a damn thing. The Electoral College should be abolished, just like we abolished slavery, and senators should only have political power that represents the number of people from their states.

McConnell's opposition to unemployment relief in the face of a depression and COVID-19 are an open wound, that only rubs more raw in Kentucky because it's against Trump's wishes.

Plus, McGrath favors term limits like the majority of Kentucky voters and Trump, but most of them don't know it yet.

Bad look for Arkansas Democrats not to recruit someone to run against Tom Cotton. While it would be very, very difficult to unseat Cotton; make an effort to show the Democratic Party exists in Arkansas.

This is where the DNC Chair, Tom Perez, and staff could have worked with the State Democratic Party to organize and find someone credible enough willing to run. Find a woman or African American candidate at least.

The negligence of Perez is not limited to Arkansas. Biden needs to get Perez replaced after the election.

There's no "toast" when McGrath's term limit stand could cost McConnell his re-election if she emphasizes that and her support for Trump's economic stimulus.

Republicans opposing economic relief AND stealing another Supreme Court seat is going to have major repercussions — possibly on McConnell himself — before election day.

I think both are tight. Harrison seems to be doing well, holding his own against Graham, and Ossoff is doing the same against Perdue. But both Graham and Perdue are ruthless corrupt bastards so anything can happen. I hope the Dems win, but if it happens it will most likely happen in South Carolina, as improbable as it seems. You have PErdue running nasty anti- semitic ad campaign against Ossoff who's Jewish. Inn S.C. I'm surprised a Black man can actually be in a competitive race against Graham. But Graham's slavish disgusting devotion to Trump may finally do him in, and PErdue's absolutely corrupt avaricious behavior may get him ousted too. But the Perdues are not to be underestimated, and the Defense Industry has a huge investment in Graham.

Colorado Senate Moves From Toss Up to Lean Democrat

Cook Report is a bit late. That Colorado senate seat was always solid Dem.

by Anonymousreply 47909/23/2020

R479, in theory the Colorado Senate seat should have been a pretty easy pickup for the Dems, but in practice Hickenlooper has had some stumbles this year and has not been running as strongly against Gardner as expected. That's why Cook Political kept it a Toss Up. But now Gardner's decision to vote for Trump's Supreme Court nominee will probably seal his doom.

Warnock is in some bullshit race where a bunch of people compete, then the top two have a run-off (assuming no one person gets 50% or more).

Only the special election for what is now Loeffler's seat may go into a run-off (if no one gets 50%). Money donated to Ossoff will be well spent now. Monwy donated to Warnock will also be well spent now, since it means leaving Lieberman as far behind as possible among Democratic voters and even possibly pushing Warnock over the 50% threshold (he's at 41% in a recent poll and the Republican vote is split evenly between Loeffler and some other kook).

While 51 seats gives a party majority in senate, it isn't exactly a slam dunk. Sixty votes without a VP from same party (who would in theory make the sixty-first vote needed) or a straight sixty-one from one party or bi-partisan is needed to move something in senate. Otherwise the opposition party can do all sorts of things to kill a bill. Mitch McConnell fucked with Obama that way most of his second term, and tried his damn best during first.

This is why Senator Turtle and GOP are rushing this SCOTUS process. They have wanted a conservative high court for decades and don't want to risk things in 2021. Even if DT does win reelection if democrats pick-up enough seats (at least 51 or 52), then they can stop any nomination in its tracks.

I wouldn't put too much stock in any Alabama polling. Certain states aren't polled that often. With bigger more competitive states, they have a good sense of what's happening inside the electorate with polls but the issue is that they just don't know who is going to vote on Election day (or election season now that some states start in September).

Jones won in 2017. The chances are not 50% that he wins again. Chances of a victory are probably 20-30%. That's GOOD. We're not winning Nebraska or Tennessee. But in any six year cycle, a handful of those longshot races like Jones' end up paying off when the votes are counted and its often the difference between a Senate majority and minority.

Yes indeed, we too use "cookies." Don't you just LOVE clicking on these things on every single site you visit? I know we do! You can thank the EU parliament for making everyone in the world click on these pointless things while changing absolutely nothing. If you are interested you can take a look at our privacy/terms or if you just want to see the damn site without all this bureaucratic nonsense, click ACCEPT and we'll set a dreaded cookie to make it go away. Otherwise, you'll just have to find some other site for your pointless bitchery needs.
