Another Senate Race Just Got Better for Republicans

We’ve been hearing that control for the Senate is, at best for the Republicans, a “Toss-Up,” and that Democrats are favored to hold onto their majority.

On Thursday, though, Decision Desk HQ changed its ratings for what will be North Carolina’s open seat from “Toss-Up” to “Lean Republican.”

Republican Ted Budd, who is running for the seat currently held by retiring Sen. Richard Burr (R-NC), now has a 65.8 percent chance of winning compared to Democrat Cheri Beasley, who has a 34.2 percent chance winning.

This is the highest chance Budd has had since his 71 percent chance of winning from August 9.

The change for this race comes after a poll from the Trafalgar Poll was released on Wednesday showing Budd with a lead of nearly 3 percentage points. That poll was conducted September 1-4, with 1,079 likely general election voters and a margin of error of 2.9 percentage points.

A post from Nick Field for Decision Desk HQ from September 1, even before the race was changed to reflect Budd being in favor, includes this race as one of “The 8 Races That Will Decide Control of the Senate.”

“The good news for the GOP is that Budd has led most polling throughout the year,” Field writes, though he also warns “this is a race Republicans should win and a loss here would be a terrible blow for the party.”

Additionally, it appears that Decision Desk HQ’s overall forecast for the Senate is also changing, and not in the Democrats’ favor. As of Thursday, Democrats have a 58.5 percent chance of retaining control, despite their chances being in the low to mid 60s in previous recent months.

    DO NOT RELAX… another attemp to keep Repubs from showing… vote like every vote is needed no matter what you hear so we can keep the edge off all the cheating Dems do

      Mark, I agree DO NOT RELAX. If he’s up 5% at election time the left knows they need to cheat to cover the difference. To avoid this, just vote the day of the election in person. It’s not the best solution but it is the easiest for most people.

      COS NOW!

    WHAT IN HELL IS WITH THE DEMORATS JUDICIAL SYSTEM, EVERYBODY IS “HANDCUFFED?” IS THAT THEIR SHOWING OF STRENGTH???? WHERE IN HELL IS THE, “BATMAN”, WHEN YOU NEED HIM? “GOTHAM CITY” IS FALLING.

  • Even if they could manage to stop Trump (I don’t think they will) their very efforts to do so will play against them in a major way. Their November defeat is eminent. A solid Trump candidate will win.

  • Rick says:

    The Republicans will not gain control if they do not stay to message. They need to hammer several messages over and over. Lower energy prices by drilling and open up pipeline. Finish the wall and secure the border. Fix supply chain issues to lower inflation. Bring law and order back to our cities. Cut spending on Green Deals and other worthless Dem projects.
