1. The 2020 election is 22 months away

A lot can happen between now and November 2020, let alone 2022 or 2024. That being said, I would say the chances are a little better than 50/50 that your scenario of 49D 51R materializes.

If we assume:

a) The economy goes into recession in 2019 or 2020; and
b) The Republican party suffers something cataclysmic, like a Trump impeachment, indictments of high ranking politicians, uncovering of a conspiracy to defraud the U.S., etc.

Then, the chances are improving to a 50D 50R scene in the Senate if the Democratic challenger to Susan Collins of ME wins that election.

2. Collins(R-ME) is vulnerable but she can narrowly win re-election.

The likely Democratic nominee for the 2020 ME US Senate Election is going to be Adam Cote-D.- The 2nd place finisher in the 2018 Democratic Primary for ME Governor.
