RealClearPolitics has polling averages for the nation's gubernatorial races. Accessed the day before the midterms, their map shows 20 Republican governors leading, 18 Democrat governors leading, and 12 toss-ups.

This represents a decline for both parties compared to last week, when RCP reported 22 Republican governors and 19 Democrat governors, with only 9 toss-ups.

Alaska and New Hampshire, both leaning Republican last week, now are considered toss-ups. Connecticut, which leaned Democrat last week, is also now considered a toss-up.

The Center for Politics predicts Democrats will net gain 10 governorships. 

For Connecticut, the race to replace outgoing Democratic Governor Dannel Malloy pits Republican Bob Stefanowski versus Democrat Ned Lamont.

In an article published Saturday, the New England Cable News labeled the race "tight," in part because of the retiring governor's unpopularity.
