538 clip: Confidence Interval: Democrats Could Win 60 Seats In The Senate
https://fivethirtyeight.com/videos/confidence-interval-democrats-could-win-60-seats-in-the-senate/

A Dem-controlled filibuster-proof Senate - anyone think that's possible?
I'd be happy with us just taking back control of the Senate but one could dream.

Hillary has a 95% chance of winning the 2016 election...

2. So glad i'm not the only one who dares to dream

Can't wait to see Moscow Mitch's face on 11/4 knowing he just lost control of the Senate

4. oh heck yes!!

Amy McGrath (KY) & MJ Hegar (TX) are the 2 senate seats i would get most satisfaction from if these 2 amazing lady vets flip them. MJ would be my Senator and she's from Round Rock near me. She's within single digits striking distance now but hopefully w/ this Blue Tsunami both these ladies will benefit from that & win their seats.

5. I honestly only see four seats changing hands

To build a super majority we would likely need two new states with four more blue Senators and a strong mid-term re-affirmation.

6. CO AZ ME IA NC MT look solid KS GA GA possible

AL & KY look like bridge too far.

The filibuster (which was originally 66) should be eliminated because the Republicans abused it. It was used only once in the first 100 years.

The Senate already has a super majority without the filibuster; the 20 least populated states (mostly red) have a combined population less than CA but have 40 Senate votes but only 18% of the population.

9. We had one of those in Obama's first term...

…and all that happened was that the “Blue Dogs” made common cause with Republicans to block a public option, restrict the scope of the stimulus, etc., etc.

12. As long as trump keeps talking , tweeting , and attacking Americans,

Those numbers could be 8-10. Trump and republicans devastating Americans with their pathetic stimulus bill , and the depression setting in. many will have seen enough of trump and the GOP in office, and oust them. They're tuning states blue with what they're doing now to hurt us and the economy, and all the corruption going on.

14. As the video says it is very unlikely

To me, specifically, GA. no way in hell are we winning a senate seat there while Kemp is governor. He’ll Rig it.

I will refer all to the DUmp's near perfect record of being a reverse barometer.

So this makes me feel good.
TRUMP 2017-2024 MAGA

"We are gonna win, win, win. We're going to win with military, we're going to win at the borders, we're going to win with trade, we're going to win at everything. And some of you are friends and you're going to call, and you're going to say, 'Mr. President, please, we can't take it anymore, we can't win anymore like this, Mr. President, you're driving us crazy, you're winning too much, please Mr. President, not so much, and I'm going to say I'm sorry, we're going to keep winning because we are going to make America great again."
