New Forecast Sees Democrats Winning 229 House Seats


October 12, 2018 at 10:31 am EDT By Taegan Goddard

Harry Enten: “My best estimate gives the Democrats a 23-seat majority in the House. That means they win 229 seats. However, the margin of error is wide enough that they could end up with 205 seats, short of a majority, or 262 seats, well more than needed for a majority.”

4. Really would like to see it be 240 or above

Senate was such a tough get this go around, and it isn't breaking right down the stretch.

REALLY would be good to have a more substantive win in the House - cause dems ain't reps, it isn't one uniform voting block, and also the message it will send ...

5. In other words, who knows? We simply must overwhelm with numbers of voters. Preaching...

To choir, I know, but I have to shout it out somewhere!

6. 217 is needed for a majority. so how do we get a 23 seat majority if we only win 229 seats?

9. We'll have 23 more seats than the Republicans

435 seats
229-206= 23

10. Ah, thanks.

Not sure I like calling that a "23-sear majority", but at least now I understand where the number came from....
