The House of Representatives is comprised of 435 seats. The Republican Party currently controls a majority of seats in the House of Representatives by a margin of 236 Republican seats to 193 Democratic seats. In order for the House of Representatives to flip from Republican control to Democrat control, the Democratic Party would need to gain 23 seats—in addition to the 193 seats that Democrats already hold.
Of the 435 seats that are up for grabs in November, 199 seats are either safe or lean in favor of Republicans, while 205 seats are either safe or lean in favor of Democrats. This leaves 31 toss up seats. Of the 31 toss up seats, 29 are currently held by Republicans while 2 are currently held by Democrats.
Given the opportunities and mood of the electorate, Democrats are certain to gain seats in the House. But given demographics, trends, and partisan redistricting, it is not yet certain whether Democrats can take back control of the House.
