-Source-CNBC- Two weeks ahead of the Nov. 6 midterm elections the Democratic path to the House majority runs through congressional districts on city outskirts throughout the nation from Orange County Calif. to the Dallas suburbs to southern New Jersey. While red rural states will likely decide whether Republicans keep the Senate majority key races in suburban swing districts including those that voted for Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton in 2016 are where many House Republicans are on defense. Democrats need a net gain of 23 seats to win control of the House. Working in their favor is President Donald Trumps low approval ratings a historic 41 open or vacant or GOP seats a fundraising edge and energy among Democratic voters. The nonpartisan Cook Political Report rates 70 GOP seats and only five for Democrats as at-risk. Key to Democrats success will be turnout among college-educated women who are not only energized to vote but running for office in record numbers. Hello! Weve got complete midterm election coverage right here. Lets begin! In a recent Tweet Trump made an appeal to college-educated women voters saying they want safety security and healthcare protections" along with financial and economic health." I supply all of this far better than any Democrat (for decades actually). Thats why they will be voting for me!" he tweeted. Thats not likely given the energy of the womens resistance movement and a gender gap the size of a canyon. A CNN poll released Oct. 9 showed 63 percent of women said they would vote for the Democratic candidate in their congressional district while 50 percent of men said they would vote for the Republican. Plus the presidents party historically loses seats in midterm elections. Polls show Americans favor Democrats over Republicans for Congress by more than 7 percentage points according to a RealClearPolitics average. -Source-CN blue wave the House could look much different next year with Democrats expanding their ranks of women in the House by up to one-third said David Wasserman the U.S. House editor for the Cook Political Report in a recent interview with USA TODAY. Many including women of color are poised to make history as candidates. -Source-CNB the first year in history when Americans elect more than 100 women to the House but that would not be occurring without Donald Trump in the White House" Wasserman said. It is a direct reaction to his election.
