31. It's going to be a close election

The Kavanaugh fiasco DID energize the GOP base, and that absolutely can have an out-sized effect during a midterm election. We may also be seeing a repeat of the Trump-shame Effect in polling, where voters tell pollsters they disapprove of Trump and the GOP, but still pull the 'R' handle when they find themselves inside the voting booth.

Democrats are now at risk of falling into the 2016 mindset of thinking the GOP are so transparently loathsome and inept that they couldn't possibly pull off a win. We need to approach every single race as if it's a toss-up.
