|Senator Michael Bennet|
- Joe Biden’s approval is lower than Clinton’s at his first midterm (1994) and Obama’s (2010).
- Clinton lost 8 Senate seats and 54 House; Obama lost 6 Senate, 64 House.
Although the most competitive seats in the West are in Nevada and Arizona, and Bennet’s seat is listed as safe, he’s near the competitive line. After merging analyses from the University of Virginia’s Sabato’s Crystal Ball and Charlie Cook’s The Cook Political Report, the latest chart from 538 shows Bennet is on the edge of a safe seat. Their comment is:
“Beyond New Hampshire, it’s not hard to imagine Colorado’s blue-leaning seat, held by Sen. Michael Bennet, also becoming competitive if things deteriorate further for Democrats.”
