Several new polls released over the weekend show Democrats’ hopes of holding their U.S. Senate majority after Tuesday’s midterm elections are increasingly distant.

One series of polls, which were released on Sunday and were conducted by NBC News and Marist, find Republicans ahead in a trio of crucial Senate races in Kentucky, Georgia, and Louisiana.

There is increasing speculation the Senate majority could come down to runoffs in Georgia and Louisiana. Republicans need a net gain of six seats in order to flip the Senate.

In Georgia, where Republican Sen. Saxby Chambliss is retiring recent polls have shown Democrat Michelle Nunn gaining momentum against Republican David Perdue. Many have had the pair tied. The NBC/Marist poll seems to indicate Nunn’s momentum has stalled and found Perdue leading 48% to 44%. If neither candidate gets above 50% of the vote, the race will come down to a runoff that will be held next month. The poll shows Perdue with a 49% to 46% lead in a hypothetical runoff.
