Real Clear Politics now places Democrats with a 6.9-point advantage over Republicans on the generic ballot.

I have selected the Judicial Council of the United States Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit to accept the transfer and to exercise the powers of a judicial council with respect to the identified complaints and any pending or new complaints relating to the same subject matter.
Vice President Mike Pence gives Republicans the tie-breaking vote.

If Republicans do gain additional seats in the Senate, any contentious legislation passed in the House would likely not be passed in the Senate. They need a net gain of two seats to win back the Senate, but, if anything, Republicans are more likely to gain a seat.

Sen. Heidi Heitkamp was back in North Dakota before the deal was reached. Numerous nine toss-up seats were leaning Democrat. He said this would lead to "wasting a lot of time, but we'll just have to fight it out because there's a lot of haters and they're just absolute haters". There are 25 Republican-held districts that Hillary Clinton won in the 2016 presidential election, and 12 Democratic-held districts that then-candidate Donald Trump carried.


With the House and the Senate closing up shop until after the US midterm elections, it seems fitting to take a look at what the makeup of the respective chambers will look like in 2019, and what that means for legislation.

"On numerous Senate races, races that we didn't think we had a chance, we're going to at least do very well and in many cases I think we're going to win", Trump predicted.

"The radical Democrats have turned into an angry mob", said President Trump during a political rally this week. I didn't believe the polls because I think they have tremendous energy.
