2022 Midterm Elections Odds

Right now, the Democrats have the majority 221 to the Republicans 213 in the House of Representatives. A repeat of Democratic control has just under a 12 percent chance of happening.

In what was once a close race, back in July, we've really seen the Republicans pull away in recent months with the likelihood up to just over 70 percent. Back in July, a Republican House and Senate were even with a Republican House and Democrat Senate were even at 31.75 percent.

Line movement is nothing new in politics. The 2016 and 2020 Presidential elections showed just that, how quickly things can change. Again, as of now, it looks like the majority is heavy Republican but all that can change rather quickly.

In just sixth months time perhaps we see the Democrats catch up to where things were back in July. By the way, if you're curious this is what the Presidential odds look like for 2024 right now:
