Tested it out with this new KY map. Based on 2016-2019 results, intrigued how it would do in 2020. The #KY04 (R+7 PVI) seems more competitive than the real #KY06 (R+9), with the movement in the Cincinnati and Lexington suburbs. 2/27 davesredistricting.org/join/d389d8e2-…
However, I also did a bunch of Democratic gerrymanders after 2012 redistricting to compare with the real Republican ones. Thought I’d review how my designs performed in light of 2016. The contrast shows just how much of a difference partisan control makes (spoiler: a lot). 3/27

Why the slight shift? Let me try to explain what we've observed move post-Labor Day. There are basically 3 large buckets of House races we're watching...
1) Vulnerable Rs in upscale, suburban, Clinton-won "Whole Foods" districts like #VA10 Comstock, #KS03 Yoder, #CO06 Coffman, #MN03 Paulsen, #CA45 Walters, #NJ07 Lance, etc. These Rs are mostly trailing & their numbers haven't gotten any better recently.
2) Competitive races in redder, working-class districts that Trump won by double digits in '16, such as #IL12 Bost, #MN08 OPEN, #NY22 Tenney, #WV03 OPEN, etc. Overall, things have slightly improved in "Trump zones" for Rs, w/ notable exceptions in districts like #KS02 & #ME02.

According to statistical tests, NYT Upshot House polling turned sharply more Republican in polls taken since October 1 and the trend seems to have continued with its Senate polling.
Here's day by day evidence of the GOP's good run in House polling.

Upshot polling data was split up into (estimated) days, a statistical model was run based on the first 10 days of polls, and actual responses were compared to the model. Upswing began around 10/3.
The Upshot data files don't have a date of interview, so they were split up evenly over the field dates. This isn't exact, but hopefully any errors are smoothed out.

Of course, this is still dependent on the races being polled - it could be these are strong GOP candidates.
