Election Day 2019. Will today's results show how things are trending for next year?

Today is Election Day for the off year races. There are three states that I will be watching tonight. The big show is in Virginia, where all the seats in both their lower and upper chambers are up for election. There are also gubernatorial races in Kentucky and Mississippi.

In Virginia it seems the Democrats are slightly favored to win both houses, which would be important for them given that the post census redistricting will be done by the legislators that are elected today. This may also be a bellwether for how the country is leaning going into next year's election.

There are also gubernatorial races in Kentucky and Mississippi, which are likely to go Republican, though possibly by a lower margin than expected for deep red states.

Are their any of you all in these states? What are your guesses about the results and opinions on the races? Will the results indicate how the country is leaning heading into next year's election?

My prediction is that the Democrats will sweep both chambers in Virginia and Republicans will win in Kentucky and Mississippi.
