Zimbabwe's ruling party wins majority seats in parliament: poll body

  Zimbabwe's ruling party wins majority seats in parliament: poll body Zimbabwe's ruling ZANU-PF party won the majority of seats in parliament after sweeping rural constituencies by huge margins, official results showed on Wednesday, setting the stage for President Emmerson Mnangagwa's victory.The Zimbabwe Electoral Commission results showed Mnangagwa's ZANU-PF cruising to a big majority after picking up 109 seats against 41 for the opposition Movement for Democratic Change (MDC). Another 58 seats are yet to be declared.

That’s likely where most bets are being placed. Players are on the field at game time to do a job. Twenty-two NFL teams saw fewer fans in their stadiums, and as a result attendance dropped by three percent in 2017.

NFL spokesman Joe Lockhart on the attendance in LA & SF: “Any time we empty seats that something we want to address.” And we haven’t even gotten to the Los Angeles Chargers, who haven’t even been able to sellout a Those brokers will likely aim to sell those seats to opposing fans all season.

The Browns-Giants game on Thursday night gave fans watching on TV a chance to see Baker Mayfield and Saquon Barkley. It gave fans in the stadium the chance to place bets during the game.

DraftKings, which handles the mobile betting in New Jersey, told Fawkes there were no restrictions on mobile betting at MetLife Stadium, with in-game wagering on the Browns-Giants game available until late in the fourth quarter.

  Dems eyeing smaller magic number for House majority The magic number of seats Democrats need to hit to win back the House majority is 23. But in reality, it's almost certainly a much smaller number. Several GOP-held seats are almost certainly already in the bag, meaning Democrats likely need to take a smaller number of competitive seats - perhaps as few as 15 - to return to the majority for the first time since 2010.

Poll: Democrats in stronger position to take the House .
The CBS News Battleground Tracker House model shows Democrats poised to win 222 seats if the election were held todayDemocrats have improved their standing in the fight for control of the House of Representatives. Our House model now shows the party poised to win 222 seats if the election were today, up from our estimate of 219 earlier this summer. The range on that estimate is plus or minus 11 seats, or 5% of House seats. It reflects the political reality that many contests are still toss-ups and that Republicans are still in a position to hold the House, if a less comfortable one.
