Will the Democrats hold the US House of Representatives in the 2020 Election?


Currently the US Democratic party holds 232 seats and the Republican Party holds 197. However, all of the seats will be up for re-election in 2020. You need 218 to have a majority. Will the Democrats keep their majority?

This resolves positively if the Speaker of the House of Representatives elected at the start of the 2021 congressional session is a Democrat.
