Desk Analysis: Republican President Donald Trump's consistent unpopularity since day one has haunted the "Grand Old Party" going into an off-year for elections. In the battle for the Governors, the dominating Republican party are defending against a resurgent Democratic party that could flip a majority to their side for the first time in nine years by having a net gain from the previous election of 3 seats. While the national environment favor the Democrats making gains, the economic environment and favorable map favor Republicans limiting the damage. As of January 2019, With 1 seat up for grabs, there's a chance at anywhere between 22 to 23 seats for the blue team with 23 expected to go to them, or between 27 to 28 seats for the red team with 27 expected to go to them. That means we could see Republicans flip up to as many as 1 net seat.
