New Axios Polls: If Elections Were Held Today, GOP Would Gain a Senate Seat

If the midterm elections were held today, Republicans would not only avoid losing seats in the U.S. Senate, they would actually gain a seat and have a 52-48 majority.

That’s the takeaway from a new Axios poll, measuring the states of the races in 13 battleground states.

Here’s where the GOP would gain seats, according to Axios:

  • Florida: Gov. Rick Scott (R-FL) is leading incumbent Sen. Bill Nelson (D-FL) 49-46
  • North Dakota: Rep. Kevin Cramer (R-ND) is leading incumbent Sen. Heidi Heitkamp (D-ND) 52-47
  • Indiana: Businessman Mike Braun is leading incumbent Sen. Joe Donnelly (D-IN) 49-47

Here’s where Democrats would gain seats, according to Axios:

  • Nevada: Rep. Jacky Rosen (D-NV) is leading incumbent Sen. Dean Heller (R-NV) 48-45
  • Arizona: Rep. Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ) is leading her potential Republican opponents in the open election there; however, Rep. Martha McSally (R-AZ) is within the margin of error (down 48-44)

One Democratic hope for 2018, Tennessee, seems a bit more far-fetched than it did in past weeks and months. Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) is leading former Gov. Phil Bredesen (D-TN) 55-41, according to Axios.

Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-MO) should also be sweating. Axios has her up just two points on state Attorney General Josh Hawley (R-MO).

Six other Democrat-held seats (in Ohio, West Virginia, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Montana, and Wisconsin) are outside the margin of error for incumbent Democrats.
