And congressional seats in the reapportionment election of 2022?
The GOP, provided it crafts a good replacement for ACA/AHCA that increases Medicaid subsidies and protects PP and lowers the cost to the working classes, will clean up.
Bit early for predictions, not knowing who's running doncha think?
As a general rule whichever political party is not in the White House gains seats in mid-terms. Almost always in fact.
Pogo, normally that is so. But now that the GOP has inherited its role in national health care, if the Senate crafts the right bill, the House signs on, and the President signs it, the Dems could go to 38 seats.
Nope, not enough to go on. Any given election depends on who's running for it. And that's info we don't have yet. Ain't got nuttin' to do with bills.
Sure, it does. You are hoping for a massacre, but that only happens if the GOP Senate screws up the health bill. The senators are well aware of it.
That is a whole lot of 'ifs' for a party that has been somewhat dysfunctional thus far. The senate will be tough for the Dems though, considering how many seats they will have to defend.
I'm not "hoping for" anything --- I'm simply observing that any given election depends on who's running in it, and we do not know who the challengers are. Therefore it's impossible to make an educated guess on the OP's presented question.
Once those contestants are known, then we may be able to predict who wins this one an who wins that one. But you can't do that on generics.
Or win ?!
What works for the goose works for the gander.
Trolls normally start with a troll title for their troll thread.
"How many seats are up for grabs in vulnerable districts" is a more logical non-troll phrasing of the question.
I have read that the DEM's have more vulnerable seats coming up.
But with Donnie and Paul behaving like mad frat boyz I have to believe that a vulnerable DEM seat is rather an oxymoron now.
Just as a safe GOP seat is also oxymoronic.
Nov 2018 is still 18 months away.
