The GOP’s Senate chances are collapsing

The GOP’s Senate chances are collapsing 1


Republicans' chances of holding onto their Senate control are not looking so great. Not only do seats like Colorado and Arizona — both currently held by Republicans — appear to be all but lost for the GOP in 2020, but seats once considered safe are looking more like toss-ups. CNN’s Chris Cillizza explains how Republicans found themselves in this position.


Senate Republicans got some VERY bad news Monday

The 10 Senate seats most likely to flip, 3 weeks from Election Day

The Senate playing field is collapsing on Republicans

      Hey Chris. I voted by mail. I my ballot on 10-6-2020, voted and mailed it back on the 7th. I received an email on the 10th letting me know that it was received timely and recorded. It also said that I shouldn’t go to my polling place on election day since I have already voted. Trump was telling his base to vote twice 😂. They can try it if they want to. I live in Philly and things are done by the book here. People please vote as soon as you can. If you are voting by mail return your ballots as soon as you can. It took 2 days for my ballot to reach it’s destination, but other city’s mail might move a little slower. Biden/Harris 2020🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊⚖️⚖️⚖️⚖️⚖️.

    • @Valerie Watkins Trump never told people to vote twice.

    They are collapsing because they have enabled Trump throughout his entire presidency that’s just unacceptable.

    • So Trump walking in on underages at his beauty pageant when they were changing because he was inspecting his pageant is perfectly acceptable?

    • @The last farewell yes blackmailing foreign diplomats with billions of dollars to fire lead prosecutor so they didn’t go after his son and his connections where he even bragged about it on stage… yeah that’s legit… They’re also appears to be a case of the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree with children involved on that hard drive, much like creepy Uncle Joe who has been seen countless times on camera sniffing little girl’s hair and talking about kids rubbing his legs. We’ll see how old mush brain does tonight with the usual softball questions… But you can bet that the average American is waking up, even though you’re still deeply asleep.

      @ZeroMass Regarding videos of sniffing little girl’s hair, etc. This just shows how folks like you, whose minds are in the gutter, can portray the most innocent of scenes and turn them into porno fantasies. You and others who subscribe to this perverse interpretation are sicko. Regarding blackmailing, etc, you’ve presented ZeroProof which aligns appropriately with your nom de plume.

    • @The last farewell the left has covered all of the degeneracy and abuse on children from Netflix to Epstein and Clinton’s, to men dressing up and reading stories to little kids who turn out to be convicted pedophiles.. you can make up anything you want in your head buddy it doesn’t excuse nor change the facts

      And zero proof? Don’t you worry your pretty little head you’ll see in a few days 🌞

      @ZeroMass Zero proof, and shady characters (Giuliani, MacIsaac) with contradictory statements seem to be the hallmark of the desperation behind this amusing hit job. It’s like the Keystone Kops, Pink Panther, and the Gang Who Couldn’t Shoot Straight all rolled into one last-minute Hail-Mary attempt at a reality TV reboot.

  4. That is what they get for hitching their wagon to Trump and staying silent.

  5. IGNORE ALL POLLS VOTE! American lives are on the line.

  6. I’ll pull the switch straight down on Democrats side this time, even if a dog is running on it.

    Me: (sigh) ‘Lemme check my TikTok.’

  9. Dems control senate and house. Trump re-elected but gets impeached immediately 😆

    • @Delage Eric is a joke of a conspiracy theory that rowdy Rudy been workn on for months as special October surprise…. total BS like everything Trump. Fearmongering lies, usually closer related to actual crimes Trump is guilty of himself. Projects Much lol

    • OR Trump loses the election and is indicted for tax fraud, abuse of power and human rights violations (to name a few) immediately following Biden’s oath of office.

    • @J B what room did you paint change that two tone silver & gold

    • @Delage Eric LOL do you really believe people are going to buy your BS conspiracy theory fake dialect with the other fake Russian/American gossip. .HAHAHAHAHAHAA……you guys are amateurs easy to spot

    • That’s not a bad thought!

    Just vote america. All these predictions are just that, predictions. Voting will actually make it happen
