13 congressional districts have shifted left ahead of November midterm elections, according to the Cook Political Report, with Sean Patrick Maloney's New York district (18) and Dave Loebsack's Iowa district (2) moving from likely Democrat to solid Democrat.

Why it matters: This is yet another sign pointing to a Democratic landslide in the midterm elections, despite the President's popularity rising to 40% since January and Republicans closing in on Democrat's early lead in generic polling, which asks which party voters would support for Congress.

Here are the 13 districts that have moved left, with their incumbents:

Likely D to solid D

  • IA-02: Dave Loebsack (D)
  • NY-18: Sean Patrick Maloney (D)

Lead D to likely D

  • NV-04: OPEN (D)
  • NJ-05: Josh Gottheimer (D)

Toss up to lean D

  • NV-03: OPEN (D)

Likely R to lean R

  • CA-21: David Valadao (R)
  • NJ-03: Tom MacArthur (R)
  • NC-09: Robert Pittenger (R)
  • WA-05: Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R)

Solid R to likely R

  • OH-10: Mike Turner (R)
  • WA-03: Jaime Herrera Beutler (R)
  • WI-07: Sean Duffy (R)
  • WV-03: OPEN (R)
