Monopoly Politics 2020
3
You can use this spreadsheet to project the partisan result of the 2020 election for all 435 seats in the House of Representatives.

Our projections are based on only a few pieces of information:
· Partisanship - This is how much the district favors Republicans or Democrats, all else being equal. It is the most important piece of information.
· Incumbent Modifier - This combines two things: the "incumbency bump," which is how much voters are biased in favor of voting for incumbents overall (which varies year to year from about 3% to about 7%); and the incumbent's "performance over average candidate" or "POAC," which is how much better or worse the incumbent has done than would have been projected in prior elections. In an open seat, there is no incumbent, and so there is no incumbent modifier.
· National Two-Party Preference - This is how much the nation as a whole leans toward either major political party. Anything within 47% to 53% is a normal year, while anything outside of that range is a wave year for one of the two major parties.

For more information, see the Methodology tab at the bottom.

Our High Confidence Projections2020 High Confidence Projections
6
Our high confidence projections have been 99% accurate over four election cycles.
For 2020, we project 368 seats (84.6% of seats).
We make high confidence projections based on only two criteria:
· In a 50-50 year with the same incumbency bump as in 2018, we would project the seat to be won by at least a 12 point margin;
· The incumbent (if there is one) does not represent a district that favors the opposite party.
