Top election forecaster shifts Senate races away from Republicans Susan Collins and Lindsey Graham

by ROGER SOLLENBERGER, Salon, 9/23/20

With the Senate poised to begin likely explosive confirmation hearings over President Donald Trump's nominee to replace former Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, top election expert Larry Sabato has swung his projection for two critical contests to the left. Their outcomes could determine wether Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., who is leading the charge to fill the seat amid the election, retains control of the upper chamber.

Maine's Senate race has switched from "toss-up" to "leans Democratic" as incumbent GOP Sen. Susan Collins continues to struggle in the polls. Sabato also nudged South Carolina's Senate race in the direction of Democratic challenger Jaime Harrison, moving incumbent Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham's seat from "likely Republican" to "leans Republican."

2. In a change election, all the close down ballot races

tend to go in the same direction. If this does indeed happen in Nov, expect MT, SC, GA and other "toss up" senate races to go to Dems.
