The Democrats are getting serious about winning back the House of Representatives and Senate in 2020.
Now is the time to vote in the most important midterm elections of the next decade.
Trump has lost the popular vote, but he’s won the popular votes of House Republicans and Democratic-leaning states like Nevada and Alaska.
The most important thing to know about 2020 is that Trump lost by a huge margin.
The Democrats have to beat back Republicans and the GOP can’t win without a strong majority in the House and Senate.
But it will take a long time.
The next few months will determine whether the Democrats will have a credible shot at recapturing the House.
The big question is who is going to hold onto seats that Democrats lost in 2016.
The Republicans’ advantage in House races in 2020 has dwindled from about 20 to about seven seats, including the seat of Texas’ third-largest city.
The Republican advantage in Senate races has also declined to about one-third of what it was in 2016, and some races are still up for grabs.
The GOP has the votes to win back all of the seats in Congress except for one, Arizona’s 10th.
Republicans will have more seats in the Senate, but Democrats could still win the Senate in a wave election.
That would mean the Senate would be redrawn and Democrats would be in control of both chambers.
The president won all 435 seats in November.
The House and the Senate are now split between Republicans and Democrats, but there are still a few districts where Trump won by more than 20 points.
The 2018 elections were close.
The first House race between Trump and Democrat Alison Lundergan Grimes was called off after the president refused to endorse her and she was accused of stealing his signature health care plan.
The other two races, the governor’s race and the attorney general’s race, were close but won by Democrats.
The third House race, in the state of Missouri, was also close, but Trump won it by about 20 points over Democrat Todd Akin, who is running for governor.
If the 2020 election were today, the House seats could be in the hands of Democrats.
But Trump lost three Senate races in 2018, all in states where he won by large margins in 2016 and 2018.
The midterm elections were not as close as in 2016 but the Republicans did pick up a handful of seats in 2018 and still won control of the House, Senate and governorships.
Democrats would have to pick up more seats and win at least a few governorships in 2020 to regain control of Congress.
The Democratic Senate majority has shrunk to five.
There are now about 40 Republican-held seats that Trump won in 2020, compared to more than 100 for Democrats.
There is also a huge number of House seats where Trump was not a candidate in 2016: Minnesota, Wisconsin, Colorado, Arizona, Montana and New Hampshire.
Republicans could have a tough time winning those seats in 2020 if the GOP takes control of every seat.
The seat of California, where Democrats won the governorship and the Legislature in 2018 but lost the governor, is now in the GOP’s hands.
Republicans would have a hard time taking it back, but the Democrats can take it back by winning at least three seats in 2019.
The Trump administration has been working hard to change the rules of the Senate to give more power to Democrats.
They will likely be trying to use that power to try to flip more Republican-controlled seats to Democrats and to take control of more of the upper chamber.
In 2020, the Senate will be split into four chambers.
Republicans have about five seats to lose.
The Senate will become a chamber dominated by Republicans, and Democrats have three to lose and have only a slim chance of taking back control.
The current balance of the chamber, where the Democrats have four seats, would allow them to pick one seat to flip.
The three Democrats who would be able to flip seats would be: Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota, Joe Donnelly of Indiana, and Claire McCaskill of Missouri.
Heitkamps and Donnelly have a majority in both chambers and are both running for Senate.
The rest of the Democratic senators in the chamber are in a tight race.
Heittkamps is trying to hold on to her seat and Donnals’ seat.
She’s trying to make sure that Donnals doesn’t become the next Democratic Senate leader.
Donnelly is the only Democrat in the race to hold an open seat in the Republican-dominated Senate, and he’s already holding onto that seat.
He could also take the seat, which would give him the most seats in any chamber.
The biggest loser from the Democrats’ midterm gains in 2018 is California, the state that Trump carried in the 2016 election.
The state is currently split between Democrats and Republicans, but it was redrawn in 2017 to give Republicans a more favorable map.
That redistricting will be at the heart of how the 2018 elections play out.
Republicans won the governor in 2020 by 20 points, but their majority was reduced by one seat in 2018.
