After the votes are counted in NH and the run off vote in LS, the GOP will have 53 seats in the senate. 2018 is a Republican years. They have ZERO vulnerable seats, but the Democrats have highly vulnerable seats and 7 seats will be competitive. Midterm elections are always low turn out of Democrats.

Foresure pickups:
IN - Joe Donnelly
MO - Claire McCaskill (as long as they they don't run another complete idiot they will flip this one)
MT - Jon Tester
ND - Heidi Heitkamp
WV - Joe Manchin

That would put the GOP at 58 seats.

Then they would need to win 2 seats from FL, ME, MI, OH, PA, VA and WI to get the 60 seat filibuster breaker.

Very hard, but not impossible.

Dems need to be scared very scared. Not only do will they pick up seats they will EXCEED 60!

Facts are facts, Dems always have low turn out in midterm elections and this won't be any different.

The Dems are vulnerable in 12 seats to which they will foresure lose 5 and Rep are vulnerable in 1, to which the Rep are more likely to keep.

There are also 2 seats the Reps can make a play for - MA and MN. Curt Schilling is running and don't put it passed Boston voters to vote for a celebrity local sports hero. MN nearly went for Trump. In 2 years when the economy is roaring under Trump and he shows he fights for the business classes that could make a play a MN.

Here is the run down. Rep currently sit at 52 seats.

For sure pick ups:
IN - Donnelly is not super popular and this a bright red state
MO - McCaskill won because of a numbnutz comment. Won't happen again.
MT - Super red state
ND - Ditto
WV - ditto

Reps likely to win
FL - Fl went for Trump and Rubio. He will have either popular gov Scott or more likely up and comer LT Gov Carlos Lopez-Cantera. Not a good spot to be in with a roaring economy

ME - outside shot on a small state that could go either way

MI - They have a Rep Gov and Trump won the state. With a roaring economy this could be a upset.

NM - Heinrich won by only 1% in an election year with popular Gov Martinez and a roaring economy it could go red.

OH - Brown is seen as a fool and Trump won big in OH. With a roaring economy and a decent candidate this will be a foresure win. If Kasich runs this is a foresure win.

PA - Has gone red before and PA went for Trump with a roaring economy PA could go red

VA - Kaine is seen as a loser and only won because of a strong libertarian 3rd party support. Trump narrowly lost VA. It will be in play

WI - Johnson was supposed to lose big, but won. With Walker this state is now solid purple.

Prediction - with a roaring economy the GOP picks up some upsets.

Wins: IN, MO, MT, ND, WV; upsets FL, OH, PA, WI, NM super upset in MA (Schilling) and hold NV.

63 filibuster breaking seats to Dems 37 silent seats.

The Dems sure aren't helping themselves with the shit they are pulling.

If I were them I'd be very concerned at 2018. They have seats to defend and America is watching.

The Republicans lost a couple of Senator seats in 2016 because they had 24 seats that had to defend. In 2018 the filthy ass Democrats have to defend 26 seats. They will lose anywhere from 2-4. Maybe more because some of those Moon Bat Senator are in States that Trump carried.

We need to get rid of that Bill Nelson asshole here in Florida. That Libtard Moon Bat is an embarrassment to the state of Florida.

The Democrats got 11 million more votes in the Senate races than did the Republicans. Don't expect that to improve with Madman Trump at the wheel.

Actually the next election is only 9 months away. Two governorships, some special congressional elections, many local elections.

That will be your first indicator of how the public is dealing with Trump's new world order.

You are delusional Moon Bat. That "madman" as you call him turned several of the previous Democrat states into Republican. You obviously forgot that Moon Bat. Those stupid people that vote for the Democrats nitwits mostly live in the big city shitholes and they may or may not even turn out to vote in a mid term. We saw how they stayed home in 2010 and 2014, didn't we? I guess it really depend on how much Colt Malt Liquor they consumed the night before. Do you even remember what happen to the filthy ass Democrats in 2010 and 2014? They got their asses kicked pretty damn bad.

You are delusional Moon Bat. The Democrats are in bad shape and don't represent America any more.

That asshole Kenyan Catastrophic was a one trick pony being a Negro. He got all his soul brothers and sisters and the filthy ass White Guilt Libtards out to vote for him. It was despicable but that is why he was elected and unfortunately reelected, even though he was unqualified in 2008 and had a terrible record in 2012. Why anybody voted for that dickhead after the lies of Obamacare and Benghazi and the terrible economy is absolutely amazing. I guess there are a lot of stupid Moon Bats like you in this country, huh?

When the asshole wasn't on the ballot in 2010 and 2014 and 2016 the Democrats didn't do very well at all even with so many Republican Senators having to defend their seats. Crooked Hillary found out that not being a Negro she was a losing Democrat candidate, didn't she? Even being married to the first Black President didn't help her, did it?

If the Republicans get to a 60 seat super majority in the Senate the Democratic party will fracture. Moderate Dem's the majority of the party will tell the left wing of the party to go straight to hell.

That was 2014. In 2012 the the Moon Bat idiots came out of the woodwork and dismissed the dishonesty and terrible record of the Kenyan Catastrophe because he was Black. It was despicable, wasn't it?

Like your level of "astuteness" that you forgot that since that asshole Obama got elected the filthy ass Democrats have lost over 1000 seats in the nation. You also forgot that your queen did not get the coronation like you idiots expected. She got her fat corrupted ass beat, didn't she? The Republicans are in charge of the Presidency, Senate and the House. Do you even know that? How did that happen? You are not very astute, are you? Just a typical delusional dumbass Moon Bat, aren't you?
