The 2018 election is the most important midterm election in our lifetimes. It’s our chance to stop the Trump agenda and elect Democrats up and down the ballot. Which we think is a good idea because have you seen the news lately? Yikes.
After many attempts by Democrats, Harder has a good chance of finally kicking Denham out of a seat that Clinton won, and Denham only held onto by 3 points.
Democrats have a good shot here. Registered Democrats vastly outnumber registered Republicans in the district and Clinton won this district by 15 points.
Flipping this district will be the toughest out of all eight races, but Janz presents the best chance and is one of Nunes's first real challengers.
Knight is vulnerable, politically not emotionally. Fifty-six percent of voters are disinclined to vote for him again. The district supported Democratic presidential candidates in 2008 and 2016. Democratic voters (37.7%) also outnumber Republican (34.3%) voters. Clinton won this district by 7 points.
Clinton won this district by 8.5 points and Trump is unpopular in the area. Royce’s decision to retire was influenced by the likelihood that he would lose his reelection.
Republicans have a registration advantage over Democrats, but “no preference” voters make up enough of the electorate to overcome that advantage. This district is considered a toss-up and Clinton won it by 5 points.
Rohrabacher is considered one of the most vulnerable Republicans up this cycle, despite Republicans having a 10-percentage point voter-registration advantage over Democrats. With Clinton’s victory in this district and Rohrabacher only securing 30 percent of the primary votes, this is a strong pickup opportunity for Democrats.
This district is considered a prime pick up opportunity. Darrell Issa only won this race by 1,621 votes in 2016. Clinton won by 8 points. Additionally, Democrats made up more than 50% of the votes cast in the primary election.
