Ten seats in the House of Representatives that are currently held by Democrats have shifted towards the GOP in Cook Political Report’s newest analysis Tuesday.
Four “likely D”seats and one “solid D” seat shifted to “lean D;” one “solid D” shifted to “likely D;” three “lean D” seats became toss ups and one toss up became a “lean R” seat,” according to Cook. The analysis comes amid a wave of polls predicting a GOP blowout in November.
All ten of the blue seats that were moved towards the GOP Tuesday swung for President Joe Biden by eight to 20 points in 2020, according to Cook. Democratic governors are performing poorly in blue states, where Republican candidates have successfully focused on crime and inflation to draw voter support.
Republicans are likely to take control of the House, with 212 seats at least leaning Republican and 188 seats at least leaning Democrat, along with 35 toss ups, according to Cook. The forecaster expects Republicans to gain 12-25 seats.
