Trump maintains lead, likely to shift following assassination attempt

The assassination attempt on former President Donald Trump is likely to have a substantial impact on the Decision Desk HQ 2024 presidential forecast. Although our forecast is updated daily, it will take some time before the full effect of this event is reflected in the polling data.

Currently, Trump holds a narrow advantage in the race to secure 270 electoral votes. However, Nevada, Arizona, Georgia, Pennsylvania, Michigan, and Wisconsin remain toss-ups in our forecast.

House Seats Forecast

Elections will be held this November for representatives from all 435 congressional districts across the 50 U.S. states. The House Republican Conference, under the leadership of Mike Johnson since October 2023 following Kevin McCarthy's removal, and the Democrats, now led by Hakeem Jeffries instead of Nancy Pelosi for the first time since 2002, are gearing up for a highly competitive race. Although House Republicans fell short of their lofty expectations in 2022, they managed to flip nine seats, securing a majority and the Speaker's gavel. They must now defend this narrow majority against the Democrats, who hold 213 seats—just five seats shy of the 218 needed to regain control. These maps categorize congressional districts by each party’s likelihood of winning, ranging from 'safe' to 'likely' to 'lean' to 'toss-up'.
