Competitive House Seats in 2020 - As many as 1 in 5 seats may be competitive. Dems: on defense in dozens of districts captured in 2018, including 31 districts President Trump won in 2016. Republicans will defend seats that Dems narrowly lost in 2018. Republicans need to worry about suburban voters who have revolted against Trump and new residents that are changing the makeup of many areas. In 2018, 89 races were decided by 10% or less.
