On Tuesday morning, the Cook Political Report, a non-partisan handicapping tip sheet, moved three Republican senators into more vulnerable rankings: the seats of Alaska Sen. Dan Sullivan and Texas Sen. John Cornyn from "likely Republican" to "lean Republican" and the seat of Georgia Sen. Kelly Loeffler from "lean Republican" to "toss up."

Those moves now mean that Cook rates 12 Republican seats as competitive, as compared to just two Democratic seats. To win the majority, Democrats need to net three seats (if Joe Biden is elected) or four (if Trump wins again).

Cook also updated its predicted gains for Democrats to two to seven seats and Taylor concluded that "Democrats are now the clear favorite to flip control of the Senate."
