    I'd say the absence of an electoral college overshadowing individual votes in a Midterm election is quite relevant to the importance of midterm votes vs presidential votes. At least as far as I understand, the electoral college plays no role in state and local elections, and only in presidential ones.

    Put in your address here: https://ballot.votesaveamerica.com/

    They give a pretty detailed breakdown of candidates, ballot measures, and other issues that might come up. I found it didn't cover court appointees for my area, I had to do separate research for those.

    Damn the Democratic machine in NJ for making me vote for corrupt ass Menendez again.

    Better him than Hugin, though

  7. I'm disappointed that the polls are so close.

    2 years ago, I was hoping this would be a repudiation of Trump and his values.

    Hugin can claim to be all “independent” he wants, but at the end of the day, you can trust Menendez to vote no on McConnell’s shenanigans. If this were any other election at another time, Hugin wins.

    In 2016, polling generally* underreported Trump turnout because people were uncomfortable about admitting they liked him.

    (*the relative accuracy of the final average GE popular vote turnout notwithstanding)

    Now the reverse may be true; they don’t want to admit they were wrong, but they will show it by staying at home tomorrow.^

    (^ hopefully)

    Everything hinges on turnout tomorrow. Polling can over- or understate general voter motivation in strange times. We’ll see!

    The Senate is a terrible map for Dems and they still have a ~20% chance of taking the majority through multiple red states.

    At this point, we can just wait out the extra 24 hours and point to the results.

    The polls are certainly tough for the Senate, but this is an extremely tough map for the Democrats in the Senate and would be at a very high risk of creating a Republican supermajority in most other years. There is an outside chance some upsets occur both ways, but it should stay between R+1 and D+1, ranging from 52-48 to 50-50.

    The polls look promising for the governors, Congress, and many state legislatures. That is where the real impact will be seen fighting back against Trump-ism.

    I'm one of these surprise Dem votes for Gillum. I'm seeing so many DeSantis signs around FTL. With "Nuñez" underneath, to trick low-info hispanics using his wife's running mate's last name so I'm a bit worried.

    Oh how I hate that racist piece of shit. If he becomes my governor, I will leave Florida.

    I have to change my party affiliation to Dem so i can vote in primaries though.

    That's a low-info post.

    I deserved that. going to edit my post and keep the original mistake.

    Still, Gillum doesn't have his running mate's name underneath his. The intention was the same. To mislead low info voters into thinking Desantis isn't a racist piece of shit. Which he is. As is any politician who supports the Trump agenda and wants to build a wall.

    It'll be interesting to see if Dems over-perform. Especially considering that voting has been near Presidential levels this go-around. All that post-Kavanaugh enthusiasm seems like it waned and Dems are on the ascendancy. We'll see tomorrow.

    At the very least I hope voter participation is bigger than expected considering how much more covered it has been compared to 2010/2014.

    The polls are pretty lopsided. It's just that winning a vast majority of the Senate seats available this year is underwhelming because we already had most of those.

    It is though. You see it in the House because the map isn't as biased towards Republicans as the Senate. Democrats are probably getting 35+ seats.

    For the Senate, you're seeing tossups or only slightly lean right in states like TN and TX which are deep red states. Alabama is redder, but has a Democrat senator because of Trump and because the GOP candidate was so bad in Alabama.

    Next election is more favorable to dems well probably see a super majority in 2021.

    It's a nice sentiment but I think you should vote for people you agree with over their other traits. I'd prefer we had fewer white people in power but voting against your own interests just because the representative is white doesn't fix anything. Anyone, regardless of race, can fall victim to the mentality and lies that got us where we are today.

    That's almost entirely because of North Dakota and Tennessee. We're not completely dead in either, but they always were uphill climbs with how pro-Trump they are.

    It's a very difficult map for Democrats in the Senate this year with very few Republicans in swing/blue-states up for reelection.
