At the moment Alabama is D - R.  Maine, Arizona,  Colorado, and one seat in Georgia look fairly safe R -> D.  Iowa, Montana, the other Georgia seat, NC, Texas (!), and SC (!!) are all on the edge.  

Lose one, gain four, and six Who Knows?

You left out N.C. which is a likely win for Cunningham. Add that to AZ Co and Maine and Dems get control of the Senate in any case and without Doug Jones. But one GA seat is likely as well and I expect at least one more.

I didn't put it in the 'Fairly Safe' category because I don't think it is.  Lots of ignorant white hick Evangelical bigots hiding out in the western part of the state.

The Fight to Turn Georgia Blue | The New Yorker |

In the past four years, a million new voters have been added to the state's rolls, and many of them are young and nonwhite. "There are more latent Democrats here now," Andra Gillespie, a political scientist at Emory University, told me. "You've got white transplants who aren't conservative. You've got the African-American base. New Asian-American and Hispanic voters coming to the state. They all break Democratic."

Drew has been on about this since the early Summer and I didn't believe it.  

There's still the gap between registering to vote and actually voting.  Dem voters have a long tradition of sitting on their asses and not voting.  I concede that doesn't appear to be the case this time.  We'll know fairly quickly tomorrow.

Gwinnett and Cobb are basically Fairfax, just a couple cycles behind. ;)

YouGov released two polls today what when averaged have Biden up 9 in Georgia.

With that kind of number EITHER YouGov is going to be a laughingstock on Wednesday OR this is going to be a Blue Tsunami

FiveThirtyEight has poll ratings, and YouGov do not score high.

Plausible polling shows a tie leaning Biden very narrowly and within MoE.

That story is a string of ambiguous anecdotal confessions--none representing "new" voters.
ACJ says +1M registered, but Kemp's man in SoS don't publish, as is the custom, BECAUSE

2018 turnout reportedly was 61%. 159 counties with well-oiled machinery. I'll take the under in 2020.
