For the second straight week, the model is stable in the House and moves slightly towards Republicans in the Senate. The national environment is also stable, sitting at D+7.9 compared to D+7.8 last week. With just 8 days left until Election Day, we’re predicting a strong possibility of split chamber control, with Democrats retaking the House but unable to retake the Senate. However, both parties do have (slim) paths to control of either chamber.
