The Midterms are expected to return marginal gains that could have huge implications on US politics according to early indicators.
Spread betting data shows electoral shocks across key states could be in the offing, with the Republican’s slim majority likely to be upset by marginal swings.
But political experts predict the Republicans will win out in November’s elections, despite the Democrats putting up a challenge in both Arizona and Nevada.
This will be thanks to further consolidation in traditional strongholds such as Minnesota and Virginia, as well as wins in North Dakota and perhaps even Missouri and Florida.
Ed Fulton, trading spokesman for Sporting Index, said: “We expect it will be an incredibly tight Midterm election, and it wouldn’t be the most surprising outcome if the Senate ends up without a majority.
“The recent galvanisation of voter bases from both sides mean it should be an election with higher voter turnout that normally expected, and marginal gains could have huge implications for American politics.
“Our politics experts have also predicted that Democrat Beto O’Rourke’s fairy-tale campaign in Texas, which has seen significant momentum gathered, will fall short as the votes are counted.”
Since you are here
Since you are here, we wanted to ask for your help.
Journalism in Britain is under threat. The government is becoming increasingly authoritarian and our media is run by a handful of billionaires, most of whom reside overseas and all of them have strong political allegiances and financial motivations.
Our mission is to hold the powerful to account. It is vital that free media is allowed to exist to expose hypocrisy, corruption, wrongdoing and abuse of power. But we can't do it without you.
