Democrats are now unlikely to win a majority in the Senate: Here's where things stand
"Republicans are enjoying a much better election than anticipated. Republicans are now poised to maintain their majority in the Senate. I just received a very gracious call from Sara Gideon conceding the raise voice of Republican Senator Susan Collins, speaking earlier today in Maine, a state that Democrats had considered a must win to have a chance at flipping the Senate. No. In the House Republicans are expected to pick up seats shrinking the Democrats majority down to single digits for more on this NPR congressional correspondent Susan Davis is here. Hey there, Sue what went wrong, so to speak for Democrats? Yeah, I mean, it's been a complete reversal of fortune for Republicans down the ballot. There had been this widespread confidence that Democrats were going to take over the Senate that they could gain as many as six or seven seats. And that Democrats were poised to grow their majority in the House by as many as 10 to 20 seats. Obviously, not if that happened. I think the one thing everyone is pointing to right now is just how wrong the Poles were. I think in that main Senate race that's a great example. The Democrats Sara Gideon, she led in public polls all year long and yet still fell far behind in the race. I talked to election analyst Sean Trendy this morning, and he told me that polling simply did not account for Trump's support that a significant number of Trump voters just were never accounted for. Those are the exact people that when you hear a phone call in the person says Hi, I'm from the New York Times. Would you take it all? Just go click. I think it is that straightforward. I also talked to Democratic Congressman Ami Bera of California today, and he said that the polling was way off from where it was in the 2018 midterms. And that's when Democrats won. He basically told me he just thinks Democrats couldn't account for the effect that Trump has when he himself is on the ballot. While it looks like Republicans will hold their majority in the Senate, Not all races have been called. Can you tell us what still outstanding? Yeah, There's still five races that haven't been called 47 have been called for Democrats 48 for Republicans won were watching really closely Is Michigan. There's a Democratic incumbent there. Gary Peters. He's running narrowly behind a Republican John James. Obviously, what could be a pickup opportunity for Republicans. North Carolina remains really tight, but incumbent Republican Senator Tom Tillis is leading. You know, that was always seen as a state that was critical to the majority. So if Republicans hold it, I think that's one of the reasons why they seem to feel pretty secure. Right now. Alaska hasn't been called, but I don't really see any reason there to think it's going to be a Democratic pick up and Last one's Georgia. There's two Senate races there. One of them is going to go to a January runoff, and it's quite possible. The other one where it's held by incumbent Republican David per two, might be able to hold it off and win it out, right. Given that there are some races that are going to be uncertain, at least for the next few days does that What does that mean for the Senate majority? It does, and you know, depending on how Georgia goes, it could take quite some time. North Carolina in particular, could be tight and could be subject to court challenge. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell spoke to that reality earlier today in Kentucky. You can anticipate in close elections, Both sides will be lawyered up and we'll end up in court. It's happened over and over and over again. Nothing unusual, and I do want to see her. I think McConnell has a point, and it's worth focusing on that. I think a lot of people are really nervous about what's gonna be happening with Balan challenges. It's really not uncommon, especially in Senate races to go through court challenges. Before they're certified. It happens almost every election year. That's NPR congressional correspondent Susan Davis. Thank you. You're welcome.

Barrett has made it through the gauntlet of two days of Questioning that we have been able to watch now. Today, she'll answers more questions, but that will be behind closed doors. And the question is, will she end up being confirmed? In the end the most most people believe yes because of the numbers because of the Republican majority, But in this year of 2020, nothing is guaranteed so Let's go back to yesterday, again, Senators on the Judiciary Committee asking questions and perhaps the most introspective. Portion of questioning yesterday came from our own US Senator Tom Tillis, who was there for a second day of in person questioning. Why would you do this? Knowing how this was gonna play out, knowing that you were going to be attacked and unfairly treated, and I think To a level that maybe we're some of your constitutional rights have been questionably denied. So why are you doing this? Judge Barrett? Why not just say thanks, but no, thanks. Leave it for somebody else. Well as they said to Senator Graham yesterday, And I think this was part and parcel of the conversation that you and I had that this is a very difficult process. Actually, I think I would use the word excruciating over the weeks and Knowledge that you know people are gonna say horrible things. You know that you your entire life will be combed over that you'll be mocked. You know that your Children will be attacked, Eso one might wonder why any sane person would undertake That risk and that task unless it was for the sake of something good, And as I said yesterday to Senator Graham, I do think the rule of law and its importance in the United States. Do you think the role of Supreme Court is important? It's a great good It would be difficult for anybody in this seat. I think everybody knows the confirmation process is very difficult. And so for me to say no mean other people could do this job, but the same difficulty will be present for everyone. And so for me to say I'm not willing to undertake it. Even though I think this is something important would be, you know, a little cowardly and you know I wouldn't be Answering.
