Competitive districts[edit]

The following are the predictions for House districts where at least one out of the Cook Political Report, Daily Kos Elections, the Rothenberg Political Report, Sabato's Crystal Ball, and RealClearPolitics did not agree that the district was "safe Democratic" or "safe Republican" (59 races total as of October 27). Incumbent Lois Capps did not seek reelection, signified by parentheses around her name. Note that safeness of a district is not necessarily a prediction as to outcome, nor final margin of victory.
