PEC High-Impact Races 2018

Goal thermometer

Your donations have the greatest effect when they are directed at close races where swinging a few votes might have a major effect on the political landscape. This year, the Princeton Election Consortium is focused on control of the Senate, which could go either way.


Here we identify six Senate races that are on the knife's edge: Nevada (D-Rosen v. R-Heller), North Dakota (D-Heitkamp v. R-Cramer), Missouri (D-McCaskill v. R-Hawley), Florida (D-Nelson v. R-Scott), Indiana (D-Donnelly v. R-Braun), and Tennessee (D-Bredesen v. R-Blackburn).


To gain control of the Senate, Democrats must win five out of six of these races. That isn't as crazy as it sounds; close races usually break mostly in one direction because in midterm years, polls fail to capture differences in enthusiasm between the parties.


We'll update this list as polls change. Current version: August 1, 2018.
