Good afternoon everyone,

I live in Portland, ME and I’m pretty passionate about US Politics and I really wanted to create a thread where we could come here to just discuss and post about the recent news that we’re hearing about. Also if you’re not completely knowledgeable, DON’T BE SHY. No judging here and we can all share knowledge and thoughts :love: I don’t want anyone discouraging people from entering this thread 

Thank you everyone and, and cheers to a  hopefully very successful next 4 years under President Biden

     No election

  • Democrats are defending 14 seats
  • Republicans are defending 20 seats
    • (Need +1) for majority
  • In contrast to 2018 where Democrats were defending 10 seats in states that Trump won in 2016, Democrats hold NO SEATS in any state that had been won by Trump in 2020. Meanwhile, the GOP is defending two seats (WI & PA) in states President Biden won in 2020

Top 10 Senate Seats Most Likely to Flip in 2022

1) Pennsylvania - Toomey's announcement that he won't seek reelection makes this state even more competitive than it otherwise would have been. Biden's win here was a shift from four years ago, when Trump narrowly carried it in 2016. That same year, Toomey won re-election by less than 2 points. As is with all open seats, the contours of this race will depend on who runs -- and who wins each party's nomination. On the Democratic side, Lt. Gov. John Fetterman, who finished third in the 2016 Senate primary, is the biggest name. The tattooed former mayor of Braddock, a working-class town east of Pittsburgh, sells himself as a progressive who can appeal to voters who saw something in Trump. Although his campaign is already touting big fundraising, he won't have the field to himself. State Rep. Malcolm Kenyatta, a Biden surrogate during the 2020 campaign, has announced his bid and others -- including members of the congressional delegation -- could soon follow. Kenyatta was the first member of color who identifies as gay in the state Legislature. Without Toomey in the race, the Republican side is wide open.

2) Georgia - Warnock won this seat earlier this year, defeating appointed Sen. Kelly Loeffler in a special election runoff to fill out the term of former Sen. Johnny Isakson. Warnock made history in January, becoming the first Black senator from the Peach State, and -- along with Sen. Jon Ossoff, who won the state's other Senate runoff -- he flipped the chamber after Biden became the first Democrat in 28 years to carry the state. In 2022, Warnock is running for a full six-year term. There may not be as many resources poured into Georgia as there were when it was a presidential battleground or when it held simultaneous Senate runoffs, but the underlying factors that made the state competitive in 2020 aren't going away. The Atlanta suburbs are still changing, attracting diverse and well-educated voters who lean Democratic. And all eyes are on Stacey Abrams to run for governor again, which would energize the Black voters Democrats need to turn out as part of their winning coalition. On the Republican side, former Sen. David Perdue now says he's not running, but Loeffler -- who recently launched a PAC aimed at conservative voter registration -- is considering it, as is former Rep. Doug Collins, whose candidacy pushed Loeffler to the right last year when he failed to make it to the runoff. They all are coming off of losses, but Republicans feel better about their bench here than in some other offensive opportunities.

3) Wisconsin - Johnson hasn't said whether he's running for reelection, and it's not clear which decision would give Republicans better odds of retaining this seat. If he retires, this race could get more competitive for Democrats as an open-seat contest, although Republicans feel confident they have a strong bench here. And if Johnson stays, he's vulnerable, having ended 2020 with just over half a million dollars in the bank and barreling through 2021 with a penchant for saying conspiratorial things about the 2020 election and its aftermath. In 2016, Johnson dashed former Democratic Sen. Russ Feingold's hopes of a comeback, beating him by about 3 points in a race that many observers had prematurely written off as a Democratic pickup. Whether Johnson stays or goes, Democrats have a decent chance to pick up the seat, although their field is still emerging. Milwaukee Bucks executive Alex Lasry is running, as is Outagamie County Executive Tom Nelson, a former lieutenant governor nominee who lost a House bid in 2016.

4) North Carolina - Trump's win here last fall, coupled with the reelection of Sen. Thom Tillis, proved that there's still a lot of red in this purple state. But with Burr not running for reelection, Democrats have a stronger chance of flipping his seat. Again, a lot depends on who the candidates are, but likely GOP candidates are already tripping over each other trying to criticize Burr's surprise vote to convict Trump in his impeachment trial. Former Rep. Mark Walker, who declined to run for reelection in 2020 after his House district was redrawn, announced last fall that he's running for the GOP nomination, but plenty of others could jump in, even the former President's daughter-in-law, Lara Trump. A Trump-style candidate could turn out his base but could also turn off voters in the growing suburban areas that have made this state competitive and allowed Democrats to win other statewide races.

5) Arizona - Kelly won in November, defeating Republican Martha McSally to fill the remainder of the late Sen. John McCain's term. And like Warnock in Georgia, Kelly now has to run for a six-year term in a state that Biden flipped blue. This race is lower on the list of seats most likely to flip than Georgia, though, because it's harder to see Republicans mounting an aggressive challenge to Kelly, who they admit ran a strong campaign and is an impressive fundraiser. McSally lost two successive Senate races, unable to perfect the delicate balance of appealing to Trump's base without alienating suburban women, and there isn't an obvious bench of viable candidates waiting in the wings. Arizona Republicans are deeply fractured, with those who have spoken out against Trump censured by the state party, which is now run by Trump loyalist and failed Senate candidate Kelli Ward. Those censured include GOP Gov. Doug Ducey, who has said he is not running for Senate. 

6) Nevada - Cortez Masto was elected to her first term in 2016, beating Republican Joe Heck by about 2 points and becoming the first Latina senator. She went on to chair the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee, which should arm her with the contacts and fundraising ability to run a strong defensive campaign. Although Democrats have done well here in recent years, with Democratic Sen. Jacky Rosen unseating Republican Dean Heller in 2018, the Silver State is still competitive territory that Democrats shouldn't take for granted. Biden won the state only by a little more than 2 points.

7) New Hampshire - Hassan, a former two-term governor, won her seat by the narrowest margins in 2016, defeating Republican Sen. Kelly Ayotte while Hillary Clinton also carried the state by less than a point. Fast-forward to 2020, and Biden carried the state by 7 points, while Democratic Sen. Jeanne Shaheen won a third term by nearly 16 points. All that makes New Hampshire look like a state that's trending more blue. But either Ayotte or Gov. Chris Sununu could make this race competitive if they decide to run -- and if and when that happens, this will move up the list of flippable seats. Sununu has said he'll "take a look" at the race, his potential candidacy is a threat Democrats are taking seriously.

8) Ohio - Trump's strength in Ohio (he carried the state by 8 points in 2016 and 2020) is a clear sign of its partisan lean. But with Portman announcing in January that he won't seek a third term, Democrats have a better shot at flipping the seat. On the Democratic side, some of the bigger names to watch include Rep. Tim Ryan -- who ran a short-lived 2020 presidential campaign and has long toyed with running statewide -- and Amy Acton, the former state health director. But it's the GOP primary that's bringing the most drama so far, with the biggest names openly competing for a Trump endorsement while trying to tie one another to former GOP Gov. John Kasich, a noted Trump critic who endorsed Biden. Former state Treasurer Josh Mandel has adopted Trump's rhetoric about a stolen election. Mandel has twice tried to knock out the state's other senator, Democrat Sherrod Brown, but he lost in 2012 and dropped out in 2018. Meanwhile, former state party Chair Jane Timken, who's part of a wealthy steel manufacturing family, launched her campaign with a video filled with photos of Trump and her. "I cleaned house of the Kasich establishment," she says.

9) Florida - As in Ohio, Trump's win here affirmed a lot of people's thinking that Florida is a tough state for Democrats, although Republicans' margins here are smaller. But unlike in the Buckeye State, the GOP incumbent is sticking around. Rubio last won reelection in 2016 by about 8 points, and since then, GOP Sen. Rick Scott -- the chairman of the National Republican Senatorial Committee this cycle -- unseated Democratic Sen. Bill Nelson. Any initial threat to Rubio from the Trump flank seems to have been dispelled with Ivanka Trump, the former President's daughter, saying she won't challenge him, but other challengers could emerge. Democrats to watch include Reps. Val Demings and Stephanie Murphy, both of whom have compelling personal stories and could help turn out diverse voters.

10) Colorado - After Biden's nearly 14-point victory here last fall and Democrat John Hickenlooper's defeat of GOP Sen. Cory Gardner, Colorado looks like a blue state. Now it's Bennet's turn to run for reelection. And despite those recent victories, Democrats aren't taking this race for granted in a state that still has plenty of conservative areas. Bennet is known as a cerebral legislator, but he earned national attention for a fiery Senate floor speech lambasting Texas' Sen. Ted Cruz that went viral in 2019. He was first appointed to this seat in 2009, then won a full term in 2010 by defeating Ken Buck, now a Republican congressman who has said he's not running for Senate this year. The Democrat didn't face much of a challenge in 2016, but he won reelection only by about 6 points. And although Colorado has trended more blue in the last six years, Bennet's relatively close 2016 margin is a reason not to move this race off the list quite yet.

I love politics and as I age into irrelevance I've become even more political. 

Also, obsessed with your comparison timeline above and may steal it for twitter, ha.

The only future I'm interested in for America is where my (now former, but got to vote for her three times) representative AOC is president.

Very interested to see what happens with the 15$ minimum wage and if it happens to make it into the Senate COVID Relief bill

Bernie fighting hard though gotta love it 

I don't think he's going to win this one. I think Biden will let it go and try to reintroduce it later and fail. Maybe they can get it in later at like $12. This country is such a flop.

I agree. If you maintain posting tweets and articles are good discussion pieces I’ll check in frequently. 

Other Topic: I don’t see the minimum wage going to $15 for several reasons but I definitely think America will compromise and do like a national $11-12 per hour wage.

Other Topic: I don’t see the minimum wage going to $15 for several reasons but I definitely think America will compromise and do like a national $11-12 per hour wage.

I’m really hopeful for the 15$ minimum wage, I believe it should happen, and I think with the correct/appropriate hike it’s completely manageable. But with the filibuster still being a thing and Dems like Manchin and Sinema who don’t seem to want to get rid of it I’m worried Biden will have issues accomplishing his agenda.

Like does he think his immigration bill stands a chance, I fully support it and want it to happen but damn, we know the Republicans don’t want to support something like that :gaga-scream:

I know 0 about politics but maybe if I camp out in here long enough I’ll learn some stuff.

Honestly I felt pretty clueless literally until like September of last year before the election. I had people I liked and enjoyed and definitely found policies I agreed with and didn’t but I recently became very passionate and find it incredibly important to keep up to date and in the know about what’s going on.

Please don’t be shy and feel free to ask any questions if you ever wanna know more about a subject 

thanks for checking in :kiss:

I'm European but before November I obsessively read about US politics to see if Trump would win or not, so I kind of know how stuff works.

Honestly the only reason why I hate the inflation argument is because you can literally look at anything from gas, food, rent, utilities, car prices, movie tickets, hell even fast good is more expensive than it was 10 years ago and the federal minimum wage hasn’t changed...so inflation is already happening, I don’t think that should be a reason why we can’t use a hike to see a minimum wage of 25$ by about 2024-2025

theres already a handful of experts who think by 2025 15$ will be too low

Maybe someone else can lend more knowledge though, I will admit stuff like that isn’t my forte but I do know costs prices are rising and the federal minimum wage has remained 7.50$

I'm not. I think it's not worth the fear. It can also be managed in the future.
