Could the democrats pull an upset and take the senate after all? It's looking possible right now.

A note in addition to the article: A recent poll of the Missouri senate race has McCaskill ahead by a small amount.

The tough Senate map for Democrats is looking a little less tough
Quote:
Retaking the Senate in 2018 was always a tough climb for Democrats because they are defending 10 seats in states that Donald Trump won in 2016. But that difficult terrain is looking a little less daunting these days, as new polling has led some election forecasters to believe several of those states are actually quite safely in Democratic hands.

Over the past few weeks, Democrats seem to have shored up their positions in Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin. Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-OH) has a double-digit polling lead on his Republican opponent; Sen. Bob Casey (D-PA) was always the favorite but now appears absolutely safe; and Sen. Tammy Baldwin (D-WI) — maybe the most vulnerable of the bunch and up for her first reelection in a state Republicans had been dominating — also seems to be on solid ground.

Rick Scott is one of the more interesting people in politics
He has been elected governor twice, winning by less than 50%(little over 48% both times) and only by 1.2% and .07(64,000 and 62,000 votes)

What polls are you looking at for Florida????

The RCP average has Nelson up by 1.4%, but this advantage comes from polls conducted back in early 2018. The most recent polls conducted up to June 4th (FL Chamber and Florida Atlantic University) have Scott up +4 and +3 respectively.

He is up 9 50+ voters, and they are 2/3rd of Fl vote.

The most recent polls have Nelson up, but there are enough there to argue that a 10 point lead isnt real for either candidate.

The two polls where by Gravis & PPP, both were released this week. Both of the polls mentioned the Trump tax cuts & how people were souring on them. Scott is getting dragged down by Trump some as mentioned in the polls.

Nelson should get a bump here soon as he will be back in Florida campaigning during the summer break.

Throw the Fl. Chamber poll out, as it was a in house poll. The Fl. Chamber is a big sponsor/backer of Scott.

And he had to spend almost $100 million of his own money to eke out those wins. If there ever was a perfect example of "bought a governorship", it would be that first race (spent over $75 million to win by 64,000 votes).

There will be... When it's a house poll like the chamber poll then it's a big red flag. If your Scott though you are only up 2 on a house poll which is pretty scary.
