How can Democrats easily capture the Senate in 2020?

Mitch McConnell may be coming to winter.

No, he (probably) does not have to worry about losing his reelection campaign in Kentucky, but his Senate majority is in great danger at any time since the GOP came to power in 2014.

One Democrat boasted, “Democrats have a huge advantage. A lot of states play.” “There are different factors that compliment each other.”

For starters, Republicans face a math problem. In the 2020 Senate election, the GOP will secure 23 seats, while the Democrats will only secure 12 seats. Republicans now have a 53-47 advantage, meaning Senate Democrats will need four seats to gain control of the chamber (or three if they can take over the White House.

As Republicans across the country face popular, well-funded opponents and tough referendum numbers, the opportunity for Democrats is vast. At the very least, DNC insiders are very confident that they can win Senate races in Arizona, Colorado, Maine and North Carolina against Republicans. All four races are rated “toss-up” by non-competitors Cook political statement, Does not list any races with the Democrats currently sitting in the same column.

Still, Democrats face a few challenges. The party is most likely to lose Doug Jones, an Alabama Democrat who won a special election in 2017 against alleged pedophile Roy Moore.

Depending on the outcome of the July GOP primary, Jones will face former Sen. and Attorney General Jeff Sessions or former Auburn University football coach Tommy Tuberville. February poll AL Daily News and Mason Dixon Jones showed the two men head-to-head fit.

“Now he has the support of his thoughts and prayers. No money from [Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee], ”A second Senate man, who was not authorized to speak, told The Post about Jones.

Further afield – and with a little luck – Democrats hope they can compete in Montana, Iowa and at least one Georgia seat, all of which are currently owned by Republicans. In Beech State, Sen. Kelly Loeffler continues to question why she sold millions of dollars in January and February – just before the stock market collapsed due to COVID-19. The sale came after Loeffler attended a private Senate convention on coronavirus.

Meanwhile, the Montana Democrats, Steve Bullock, a prominent former governor, and current Sen. Gov. Steve hopes to knock down Taines. A University of Montana referendum Bullock shows the lead tines by seven points. In Iowa, Sen. Joni Ernst has watched his endorsement ratings and turnout fall in recent months, and is now almost paralyzed with Democratic challenger Theresa Greenfield, who has proven to be an excellent fundraiser.

Democrats… and a lot of states have a big advantage.

The fate of the GOP senators will be affected by the man at the top of the ticket, whose own reelection hopes have been dark since January. Where Trump seemed to win on the strength of historic economic growth, he now faces the worst unemployment numbers since the Great Depression, the global health epidemic that has now killed nearly 110,000 Americans, and the racial unrest seen since the 1960s.
