Based on our own Political Hurricane estimate, the Democrats have a very good shot of winning the House under the current map implemented thanks to passage of the Fair Districts Amendment. Of course, erasing a decade long 30 plus seat deficit does not happen in one cycle (currently the Democrats are in a 42 seat hole and would need to gain 21 seats to gain the majority) but considering the new map and the political winds, this cycle would have been a great opportunity to pick up the first large chunk of seats (10 to 15) needed to regain the majority. Sadly, the Democrats have set more modest goals and are likely to pick up somewhere between 6-8 seats, a nice gain but nowhere near what was possible.
