Beech Analytics has released its initial House forecast for 2018 Mid-Terms Elections, and is keeping tabs on a lot of the close district races in what it believes is a coin-flip battle for  control of the House. 

Currently, the Republicans are projected to keep control of the house by a single seat. But it is likely many of the battleground races will go back-and-forth up until Election Day. At the moment, here is what BA believes are currently the ten close House races across the nation.

Here are some other observations from the close races in our initial forecast:


  • In addition to these ten races, there are six ​more district races that are currently being decided by under 1%; Republicans have a projected edge in those races, 4-2

  • Of the districts listed above, Donald Trump was victorious in  70% of them  in the 2016 presidential election.
