Battle for the U.S. Senate

Battle for the U.S. Senate

It appears to be moving toward Democrats. As The Fix’s Sean Sullivan reported, multiple polls in top Senate races in Massachusetts, Virginia and Wisconsin in recent days show the Democratic candidates in those states gaining. If Democrats can win even two of those states, it will put in doubt the GOP’s chances of gaining the three or four seats they need to take control of the Senate — an outcome that seemed very attainable for Republicans at the start of the cycle. The question from here is whether these swing-state and Senate polls reflect a momentary bounce and spike in enthusiasm among Democrats or whether they show a more lasting shift in the electoral landscape. Only time will tell. What’s clear to this point, though, is that the movement has been significant in the states that matter most.
