Oct. 12: Democrats Project 218-217 Lead based on process using Sabato, NY Times, Silver

So far the NY Times district-by-district polling of Sabato's toss-up districts is breaking the Republicans way and pointing to them losing only 218-217 in the House as of October 12 at 2:30 p.m. One example of the apparent across-the-board shift to Republicans from the Kavanaugh testimony to confirmation is GOP Lee Zeldin in New York. He was slightly behind, causing me to temporarily add that poll to the list below and give the Democrats a 219-216 lead, but voters steadily moved his way to such an extent that he fnished the poll nine points ahead.

October 11, 7:30 p.m. note - its dangerous to count incomplete polls, but based on the New York Times we flipped two seats. This switches PA-1 to Democrat (a -12 for Democrat up 12) and Minnesota-8 to Republicans (+25 so GOP up an incredible 25 points) to still leave the House 218 to 217 in favor of the Democrats.

I'm tracking the Senate here. The NY Times just got going on Senate polls, and the GOP had a double-digit lead in Tennessee and almost as big a lead in Texas.

The methodology we went with from day one was the same; 1) go with the Party Sabato forecasts as winning the race, 2) chance that only if the New York Times poll is run to pick (or in one case reverse) Sabato's projected winner, and if neither side has the edge through #1 and #2 then, 3, go to Nate Silver's projection and take the most current poll he records.

Of the 1 tied race and 6 unpolled race above, I went back and looked at the most recent adjusted poll on Nate Silver's page. In those races the GOP goes 5-2, losing only the two New York races, which would give the GOP a 218-217 win.
