Democrats are currently playing defense in 2018 as several Democratic senators are up for re-election in states that Donald Trump won in 2016. Trump won Michigan, Stabenow’s state, by a slim margin of approximately 10,000 votes.
Leading up to the 2016 election, The Trafalgar Group accurately predicted Trump winning the battleground states of Pennsylvania, Florida, Michigan, North Carolina, and Georgia, though by larger margins than the end result.
