2018 US House of Representatives

What is in the table is information about the potentially “close” races for the US Congress in 2018.
  • There are 58 seats in all that are deemed to be “in play”.
  • By default, the data is  grouped into10 rows in each screen. You can see more data by choosing how many entries to see from the selection box on the left.
  • Some of these seats are marked Flip (to varying degrees); Those are seats we can target to win, some more strongly than others.
  • Some seats are marked Defend. These are seats that we have on the Blue team that we must guarantee we do not lose.
And, the net seats gained in November 2018 has to be greater than 24. Otherwise, on November 6th, 2018, you are sure to be even more miserable than you were in the two long years leading up to it!
  • Filter in or out specific columns by clicking on “Columns” and use the buttons there to control what you see.
  • The “comments” column shows you our best research and reasoning.  If you want a high level view, leave out that column.
  • The table shows 10 items at a time; but you can opt to see as much (or as little) data as you wish;
  • Use the Search box to look for anything you want from the table. For example, start entering “Florida” to see the Florida seats.  As you type in the search string, you will see the filtering happening in real time.
  • Or, enter “Flip” into the Search box to see which seats can be targeted for our side in 2018. The table also display the count of the number of entries as you search.
  • The list of ALL Congressional Districts in the US may be found by here.
  • The abbreviation CPVI (Cook Partisan Voting Index.) used below is a key statistic in understanding the distribution of voters by party in that district.
  • The table has direct links to each Congressional district to ease your research (if the table works).
