Democrats are failing to capture the same majority in House and Senate races as they did during the GOP wave in November, while also losing ground on the ballot in several battleground states where the Trump administration has taken a harder line on immigration and other issues.
While Democrats have had a slight edge in the number of seats they control in the House and in Senate, the gap is widening in the other two areas of the country.
The new Senate numbers show Democrats losing a net of 12 seats since November, the lowest number of gains since 2008, when Democrats held nearly 40 seats in the chamber.
Democrats are now down to 10 seats in state legislatures in states such as Ohio, Pennsylvania and Virginia, the New York Times reported.
The Democrats are down in all but one state in the country, Michigan, where Trump won by more than 50,000 votes.
The Democrats’ net loss in the 10-seat Senate races in battleground states, where they had a net gain of 11, has pushed them back down to 24 seats in 2020.
The GOP has gained 12 seats in those states, the Times reported, including the states of Florida, North Carolina, Missouri and Ohio.
In the House, Democrats have a net loss of just four seats, while Republicans have gained 10.
Democrats have held just eight seats in Pennsylvania, and just five in the state of Ohio.
Republicans have held four seats in Florida, the state with the biggest concentration of Trump voters.
Republicans are up in all five states with the highest concentration of voters in the GOP, including Pennsylvania and Ohio, the Washington Post reported.
Trump won Pennsylvania by more, 7,000, than the 10,000 he won in November.
The Democratic vote in Pennsylvania is the same percentage that President Barack Obama won in 2012, but Democrats lost the state by just over 4,000.
Democrats also lost two seats in Virginia, where Obama won by less than 2,000 and where Trump lost by almost 3,000 last November.
In Michigan, Republicans have expanded their majority, winning nine seats and the state’s governor’s mansion, the Wall Street Journal reported.
Republicans also are leading in the race to fill Attorney General Bill Schuette’s seat in the U.S. Senate, while Democrats are in a virtual tie with the GOP to win their home state.
Michigan is the only swing state where Trump has led in the polls, according to Real Clear Politics.
The White House did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
