Ten Democratic senators are defending their seats in states President Trump won in the 2016 presidential election, and five of those lawmakers are at risk of losing to their Republican opponents, according to a new Axios poll.
Sens. Jon Tester, D-Mont., Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., Claire McCaskill, D-Miss., and Joe Donnelly, D-Ind., are the most vulnerable, and have approval ratings of about 50 percent in their respective states. Trump’s approval in these four states is well above that of these four senators.
Sen. Heidi Heitkamp, D-N.D., also narrowly trails her Republican opponent, and all five are at risk of losing in these states, all of which have Trump approval ratings above 50 percent.
