The 2022 cycle heavily favored Democrats. It enabled them to keep the Senate in spite of being outvoted by almost 4% nationwide.

This is what the 2024 map looks like. Politico calls it brutal.

No, it’s the last ‘battle’ of the 2022 Senate ‘cycle’.

Why do you think that the 2022 cycle heavily favored the Dems? Polling and historical trends indicated that Republicans were heavily favored.

No. This year's races were based on 2022 issues IMHO. Democratic voters were largely focused on the overturning of Roe and Trump ( including 1/6).

So the biggie as of right now will be if Trump runs in 2024. If Trump sits it out or backs the Republican nominee versus Biden 2024 could be a hard one for democrats.
