Bloomberg Government’s Kyle Trygstad and Greg Giroux discuss the state of play of the congressional elections on the latest episode of Downballot Counts.

With less than two months to go, Democrats are seeing positive polling numbers in Senate races and in the presidential election, positioning the party to gain total political power in Washington.

But with a number of races likely to be close and President Donald Trump’s 2016 victory still in their minds, the party isn’t overconfident about its chances. Republicans are also putting money and support into races across the country, especially in the House districts that helped Democrats gain the majority in 2018.
