The battle for the control of the Senate looks worse and worse for Democrats, who only a month ago saw a way to the majority but now they are increasingly looking to lose more seats and have a minority next year.
Republicans have seen a bump in the investigations in several key races since Labor Day. They believe that speed has turned to its party since the battle for Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh Brett Michael KavanaughPoll: Palin Unpopular in Alaska After Jab on Murkowski Fox Newss Chris Wallace: “Preposterous” to Say Dems Behind Migrant Caravan New York man arrested to threaten to kill senators who supported Kavanaugh MORE Polarized voters, wounded Democrats who drove to re-election in states where President Trump Donald John Trump Democrats Thrown In Battle of Senate Trump Considers Kushner Relationship With Saudi prince responsibility: report Christine Blasey Ford honored by the Palo Alto City Council MER is popular.
Two states where Democrats were hoping to pull big disturbances – Texas and Tennessee – have moved in favor of Republicans. Races in Nevada and Arizona, two other states where Democrats had hoped to make profits remain dense, but the Republicans feel more confident about their candidates.
At the same time, the tide has moved towards democratic candidates in a few states that Trump won by double numbers in 2016.
In North Dakota, Democratic Sen. Heidi Heitkamp Mary (Heidi) Kathryn HeitkampOvervakt Health Care – Presented by Purdue Pharma -Senat debates highlight battle against existing conditions | Support grows for Utah Medicaid expansion measure | Arkansas Health Care Officer Defends Labor Requirements Countdown: Small Donations Donations Explodes | Russian woman charged with space interference | Takeaways from North Dakota Senate debate | O & # 39; Rourke gives “final no” to 2020 run | Dems hop Latino voters hit Arizona blue Hillens 12:30 Report – Trump seizes migrants ‘caravan’ for midterms | WHCA criticizes Trump for promising legislature as abused reporter | Trump takes harder line on Saudi MORE has fallen behind with double digits.

But there are other chances for Republicans to grow their 51-49 majority.

“In the past week, FOX News, CBS and Washington Post-ABC polls confirmed that the top target is healthcare. Then Mitch McConnell reminded voters that he wants to remove coverage for existing conditions and the goal of Medicare and Social Security,” said Democratic Senate Campaign Committee spokesman David Bergstein.
“This is not what the Republicans want to talk about, and we appreciate his help to remind voters exactly what’s on the vote,” he added.
Despite the Democrats focus on care, however, their top GOP goal, Nevada Sen. Dean Heller Dean Arthur HellerFive takeaways from testig Heller-Rosen debate in Nevada Heller complains to the media in senate debate: “You see how they treat Kanye West” Countdown: Small donor donations explode | Russian woman charged with space interference | Takeaways from North Dakota Senate debate | O & # 39; Rourke gives “final no” to 2020 run | Dems hope Latino voters change Arizona blue MORE has been stuck in polls despite his vote to abolish ObamaCare.

Then. Ted Cruz Rafael (Ted) Edward Cruz Democrats Slide in Against Senate Rourkes Rise Increases Hope of Texas Dem’s Voting Countdown: Small Donor Donations Explodes | Russian woman charged with space interference | Takeaways from North Dakota Senate debate | O & # 39; Rourke gives “final no” to 2020 run | Dems hop Latino voters make Arizona blue more (R), which has increased its lead towards Rep. Beto O & # 39; Rourke (D-Texas), said the Kavanaugh debate helped him and other GOP candidates.
“Absolutely,” said Cruz. “I think the behavior of the Democrats in the Kavanaugh hearing was scary and I think a lot of Texans were deeply disturbed by the Party and political circus where they were willing to melt Judge Kavanaugh and his family to score points on political points.”
The race between Cruz and O & # 39; Rourke was tightest in early September when Cruz led the Real Clear Politics survey only three points. However, when the battle over Kavanaugh was heated, he saw that his lead grew to five and now seven points, according to an average of surveys compiled by RealClearPolitics.com.
Marsha Blackburn Marsha BlackburnKaty Perry praises Taylor Swift to engage in politics. Additives are not kingdoms, but they can be tiebreakers. Countdown: Florida Senate’s fight continues after hurricane | Cruz softens ObamaCare attacks | GOP worries Trump will lose suburban women | Latest senate election studies | Rope. Dave Brat gets Trumps total approval | | Those candidates raise record B MORE (Tenn.) Crossed at the end of September, when the wicked Supreme Court battle peaked in national attention.
Blackburn now has a six-and-a-half lead in Real Clear Politics polling, a significant improvement over most of spring and summer when she scored an average of five points.
“You can thank Brett Kavanaugh for that. Everyone I talked to was on the bubble or perhaps to Bredesen – and I’m talking about Republicans – I have not talked to any of them since Kavanaugh who does not say I’m voting for Marsha , said Chip Saltsman, a Tennessee-based GOP strategist.
Bredesen tried to extinguish the impact of the Kavanaugh debate earlier this month by announcing his support to the nominee that caused some of his volunteers to quit.
Democrats have not written
A Washington-based Senate Democrat strategist argued that the recent polls show Bredesen in a death fire with Blackburn. A Vanderbilt University survey released Thursday showed him 44 percent to 43 percent. And a poll published Wednesday by Reuters Blackburn showed up with only 3 points, within the survey error margin. But a dissertation from the New York Times / Siena College conducted simultaneously gave Blackburn a 14-member lead.
The McCaskill-Howley competition is tight, but the Republicans also believe that the Kavanaugh match helped them in this situation.
The real lines of Real Clear Politics have crossed, because McCaskill led until mid August, but now something goes on in an average of recent surveys. A CNN survey last month showed her three points, and a FOX News survey also showed her with Hawley.
In Montana, a Gravis poll from June showed tests with an eight-point lead while a follow-up Gravis survey at the end of September showed that it had shrunk to four points.
Montana is also a top goal for President Trump, who made his third trip to the state on Thursday to hold a rally for Tester’s opponent, Matt Rosendale.
Rosendale has tried to exploit the voter’s anger over Kavanaugh by comparing comparisons with how he was treated by Democrats in the Senate Court and how Tester treated Trump’s election to lead the Ministry of Veterinary Affairs, Ronny Jackson, who claimed Tester led the opposition to him.
In North Dakota, Heitkamp has seen its opinion polls decreased since Labor Day.

“She’s a good retail campaign”, but he added that the race is Cramer to lose because “it’s typical to be nationalized.”
A Washington-based Senate Republican strategist said that Kavanaugh has polarized voters and as a result moderate GOP and independent voters are less likely to cross over and vote for existing democrats.
“The improved Republican outlook across the board,” said Strategen. “It polarizes the voters in the Red States and it is the worst for Democrats who trust a handful of Republican voters who pass the passage and support them to get over the top.
In Arizona, the Democratic Republic of Kyrgyz Sinema has tried to refrain from her Other Democrats treated Kavanaugh in the Senate.
“I was extremely disappointed with how the Senate behaves during this confirmation. It was a circus, “she said during a debate on Monday.” I was disappointed with the method the Senate handled this. It felt like it really deteriorated the work the senate would do. “
