Election Day is nearly here, and Americans will soon be casting the final ballots of the 2018 election cycle. Wild predictions of a blue wave in the House have calmed to more tempered forecasts of a GOP loss in line with historical averages. Some even say Republicans could maintain control of the lower chamber. (The Senate appears to be out of reach for Democrats.)
This possibility of a split legislative branch -- with Democrats controlling the House and Republicans controlling the Senate -- appears to be a likely outcome, but the odds of a Republican-held Congress has become more likely as election day approaches. RCP's state-by-state analysis showed a path giving Democrats a pickup of 22 seats -- one shy of what they need to reclaim the majority. RCP says this is not the most likely scenario, but one that is entirely plausible, giving the GOP a slight majority in the lower chamber.
