When it comes to control of the Senate after the 2018 midterm elections, the odds are still in Republicans’ favor, but there are several paths to a Democratic majority too.

Hey, Chris here--Which of my 5 scenarios do you think is most likely to happen? And, as importantly, why?

CNN the GOP may either gain or lose a few seats in the house but will do markedly better than the "experts" say. In the Senate, they will gain 5 or more. Any illusions the Dems may have had of winning the senate have been shit upon by project veritas.

CNN is fake news and biased. CNN is pushing for dummycrats.

Is Fox News friendly towards the former president? They found ways to attack Obama when he was campaigning for Democrats, and he wasn't even attacking Trump or Republicans, so please spare the BS about how CNN is towards Trump. This video isn't even about Trump. Number 2 or 4 seem the most likely. I don't like how you have Heidi Heitkamp losing already. The odds were against Trump and he won, so apply that same logic to every Democratic candidate down in the polls right now. Screw Kavanaugh. If she plays this smart, she can pull herself back up.

hahaha.... To take back the Senate , Democrats must do more of fake news , lies , promote violence , support no border no country policy , crying hard for illegal aliens , protest against freedom of speech and ignore crime infested cities that are under control of Democratic party....Good job CNN keep up with fake news ...hahaha

As a lifelong Democrat, I can say this. The Democratic Party is doomed. The Democratic Party is hostage to Abortion Rights, Gay Rights, and with this latest Kavanaugh debacle, they are perfectly content to be hostage to the #metoo movement too. If they make any gains they will be short lived.

I think you give too much credit to Bredesen... I would say that ND flips red and NV & AZ flip blue, (effectively) tying the Senate.

How true, and I have no intention of allowing the Republicans to think for me either. How many people are thinking for themselves, and how many just want to be on the winning side. How many people are actually concerned that Donald Trump was the best we could do.

They can't take back the Senate. Heitkamp down 10 and 12 in the two latest polls even before committing political suicide by voting against Kavanaugh. Bredesen down 5, 8 and 14 in latest polls in TN. Rosen now down by 7 in NV. Democrat takeover of Senate = not happening and GOP will likely gain a seat or two.
Thomas Johnson (6 days ago)
Everyone is wondering how President Trump won the election and how we can win the midterms. There are 2 main reasons in this order 1) Prayer; Franklin Graham prayed with us all at our Capitals because 2) Obama was running America into the ground because of his global ambitions... Franklin Graham and those who follow Christ are praying again for our country. What form of Democrat organization is serving and spending money right now in Florida's panhandle?

Chris, your ability to ignore reality is amazing, you fail to mention the Kavanaugh Effect and you ignore polling as well. You rely on (Your word) "feelings" to analyze not actual data. November 8/9, 2016 hurt bad didn't it?

#Democrats are plainly up against elections right now that are about 80 % in Red States and districts,... their only hope is that the thousands of Trump Gop's from his rallies do not show to vote,... which is highly unlikely ; the math says democrats are going to Lose ,..and all across the country
mark loper (7 days ago)
Historically 75% of 18-30yr. olds never even vote . They are responsible for much of this mess . They also have the power to change it . But ??? Only Nov. will tell us if they really care . Most of them are not polled at all . Voter registration is up , but no where near those numbers . If your in that group do your civic duty . Register & show up to vote . Just do it , now !

All I kno demonrats are desperately trying to gain power so I would seriously watch for voter fraud like illegals/ dead people voting! These people are absolutely insane they are willing to harm/kill anyone they feel is in there way to obtain and retain power! So I say..... God bless America and my fellow freedom loving country men/woman we MUST vote ! And vote RED in these midterms!
Mr. Gandalf (3 days ago)
I would be more concerned about the millions of eligible voters who don't typically vote.

I am 60 years old and I would disagree with that statement. I have seen better happier times in my life. If you had any concerns other than yourself I don't think you would be making that statement.

There's alot of Republican arrogance being voiced here. The Senate is a reach for democrats by the polls,but consider the interesting dynamic this election cycle that shows the states Trump flipped to win the electoral college are solid democrat. Pennsylvania,Wisconsin, Michigan,Ohio all show likely democrat. SO how did he do it? The Russians successfully impacted our election more then could be proven. When you look at the polling then and now it doesnt maks sense Trump was able to flip the blue states he needed.One might even entertain the idea that Democrats have more strength then the polls currently show.

The Dems got this on lock. Its in the bag. They will easily coast to a huge victory. They will gain 6 Senate seats and 40 house seats. Also, in 2020, Hillary Clinton will be re-elected. Lol

I'm an independent , so I vote my conscience, but I can honestly say the Democratic party is gone as we knew it, now it's nothing but crazy, hateful and far left weirdo's.  Too bad once a  respectable group of people, now they are just a criminal mob trying to get rich on the back of American TAX payers. How stupid do they think we are!
Mejor Toler (7 days ago)
Personally, I see the Democrats as failures in the House & Senate during the midterm. Many Democrats, especially Blacks & Latinos, won't vote. Why? They feel like they are being used and not listened to. The DNC will need to learn how to win without the minority vote. IMHO, half of the minority vote won't show. And if I am correct, Trump will win in 2020.

The deep rift with Republicans in AZ is a good thing to Democrats? What, are Kelli Ward supporters gonna vote for Sinema? Absolutely not. Plus they are mostly older white people and there is no way they will stay home. They will hold their nose and vote for the RINO McSally.

Guys! People! Why are you guys complaining about CNN. This is literally FACTS. UNREFUTEABLE FACTS. If you are just complaining just because this is CNN, people just should watch Fox News. Half of these people complaining about "Liberal Bias" didn't even watch the whole video, and probably only read the title because they want a Republican House and Senate. Personally I support the Democrats, and I'll let you people have your own opinions but at least democrats don't interrupt democracy. I'll give you an example: The current Secretary of State of Georgia Brian Kemp literally took off 53,000 votes(70% African American). This is OBVIOUSLY racial bias and I can't see how someone would not see it like this. I ask myself this: Why is he ahead??? Finally, VOTE people to create a leadership which agrees with your point of view. I can't believe some people can't understand how people are so irrational. More so than a 15 year old like me. #VOTE

Hello. Do we conclude a contract? I need more free time and time costs money. Either I work physically and I do not have time to think of either I have a small but stable income and I turn to the problem of the world. That would not be a crime; given that the cyber attack against me is their own invention.

Is this guy a joke or what? Here is REALITY for everyone: Sept 2018 House poll: Dems: 206 Republicans: 189 (toss up 40) Oct 2018 House poll: Dems: 205 Republicans: 201 (toss up 29) Sept 2018 Senate poll: Dems: 44 Republicans: 47 (toss up 9) Oct 2018 Senate poll: Dems: 44 Republicans: 50 (toss up 6) See a trend in the direction? The more likely outcome in the senate is Republicans win 55/Dems 45. The house is tricky and will likely be super tight either way. Let's come back Nov 7th and see how it went.

After happening upon this video I'm reminded of why I stopped reading this guy's articles on the CNN site. They have this giddy tween Miley Cyrus fanbase tone that's painful to read - "Um, like, what?" "THAT.IS.A.BIG.DEAL". "Like, is everyone totally asleep in this administration?" and all those affected speech patterns that once were only associated with high school dropouts.
