Description

On Tuesday, November 6, 2018, 33 of the 100 seats in the United States Senate will be contested. Today, Republicans have the majority in the Senate. Who will have the majority after the midterm elections?

Decision Logic

The bet will be decided by the reporting of CNN and the Washington Post.
The bet resolves as 50-50 if two parties get 50 votes each.
The bet resolves as Black swan if something happens that renders the question void: anything from an asteroid impact to totalitarian dictatorship.

Outcome date has some time buffer in case the decision process should get messy.

Bernie and Angus should definitely be counted as Dems. They are in basically every way dems.

Good question bill_b, hadn't considered that. I am not American, so please tell me if I'm way off here, but it seems that although they run as independents, they are formally part of the Democratic Caucus. Since the question is which party will control most seats, I will count them as Democrats. Anyone who wants to complain about that, please do it now, not in November. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Democratic_Caucus_of_the_United_States_Senate

Are Bernie Sanders and Angus King considered Democrats or Third Party candidates?
