2020 House Elections – Republicans need to gain 18 seats to regain the majority. “The good news for Republicans is that much of the fight for the House will take place in districts that President Donald Trump carried in 2016. There are now 31 Democrats who represent Trump districts, compared to just three Republicans who represent Hillary Clinton districts. The good news for Democrats is that Republicans have gained House seats in just one of the last six presidential elections.” (Nathan Gonzales, Inside Elections)
