DemDaily: Status of the Senate: Race Ratings!

September 22, 2020

The battle for control of the United States Senate has taken on even greater significance as Americans are reminded that it is the Senate that determines the fate of the Supreme Court.

There are 35 of the 100 US Senate seats up for election November 3, 2020, including two special elections. Democrats are defending 12 seats, while the Republican Party is defending almost twice as many, with 23.

With the current count of 53 Republicans to 47 Democrats (including two Independents), Democrats will need to flip a net four seats to take back control of the US Senate.

Based on our review of senate race ratings by the Cook Political ReportSabato's Crystal Ball, Inside ElectionsFiveThirtyEight and RealClearPolitics' polling compilations, Democrats are now favored in their quest for the White House, which is coming down to half a dozen primarily GOP toss up seats.

Only one Democratic incumbent, Senator Doug Jones of Alabama, is rated as a potential flip.
