Well, lets start out with Arizona.

The Democrats are NOT going to nominate "sanctuary city" Gordon.

The Republicans are likely to not nominate "higher taxes" Brewer.

Insiders figure that Trent Franks will be nominated by the Republicans, and defeat Democrat nominee Terry Goddard.

The chances that Vermont is a two-way race is next to zero.  Other than that the only glaring disagreements I have are OR, WY, CA (b/c Feinstein won't run), GA, CO, IL, MD, MA, WI.  Actually, I don't really agree with many at all, I'm just uneducated at this time about a lot of races

GA, WY, and AZ I would have to agree will go Republican.  NY, Cuomo will run and Paterson will step aside as far as Freudenthal, he won't run, it too far fetched for him to challenge term limits.  As far as Ma and MD those are going to be razor thin margins.

So, I disagree on GA, WY and AZ, and NY.

While Pat Quinn may be favored, now that he has avoided a Madigan primary, I don't think even the most optomistic Democrat thinks he will win with nearly a 20% victory; it will be much closer I believe. 

I am also not sure Brady will be the GOP candidate, but we'll see, that could be a pretty bruising primary. 

If the GOP decides on one candidate all factions can accept,  they could make a real run for it in IL I think, as after 8 years of hegemony the Democratic Party of IL is running out of steam.

You forget other candidates in Maine and Vermont. In Maine you have the Greenies, which can be up to 10% of the vote or even a strongish random Indie. In Vermont, you have the Progressives which range from 5% to 20% (Pollina), the Liberty Union which is a constant 1% nuissance, plus random Indies/Greenies.

I think Peter Mills, if he wins the nomination, has an extremely good chance of winning in Maine. Baker is looking like he may tank in MA with a lot of his support going to Cahill.

There is no way Paterson will be the Democratic nominee. He'll either be prodded to step down and not bother with the primary or he'll be destroyed by Cuomo.

It seems like it'll be a lot closer than that. McCollum has lost statewide a couple times.

If that is the result, it will be good news for Fl Republican congressional candidates.

I agree with the results for the most part. Some note, however

In Oregon, I agree that Republican Gordon Smith would win should he run (and I don't think he will). Otherwise, I think a generic D beats a generic R there. Gordon Smih is still well thought of even after his recent narrow defeat for reelection to Senate, and he would be favored over a less impressive candidate like Bill Bradbury.

In Hawaii, which some analysts are already handing to the Dems as a foregone conclusion, I agree that that race will be much closer than many predict. Neil Abercrombie (D) is quirky and unpredictable, and James Aion's eight years in state-wide office under a popular Republican governor should count for something.

DiFi won't run in California. If Meg Whitman is the GOP nominee, she has an even shot against Jerry Brown and would be favored over Gavin Newsom. Dems have a long tradition of shooting themselves in the foot with Cal govenor races. Yes, Arnold isn't popular, but the Dem-run Legislature is even less so. This could easily be a Republican retention.

There's no way that Mary Fallin (R) blows by Drew Edmondson (D) by 20 points in Oklahoma. At worse, Edmondson has an even shot at winning. He's been in statewide office for about forever now already, and his family is practically an Oklahoma institution.

Finally, it's hard for me to fathom Texas voters wanting four more years of Rick Perry, though I admit it is possible. Should he survive the primary battle from Hutchison (and that's a big if), he would probably be a slight underdog to Bill White, who is a strong candidate for the Democrats (assuming he gets the Dem nomination). Perry could still pull through in the end, but it won't be anywhere close to 56%.

Which John Sununu are you predicting will be the Repubublican nominee in New Hampshire, the elder or younger? John E. Sununu recently lost his reelection bid to the Senate. His father, John H. Sununu, is a former governor and currently the chairman of the New Hampshire GOP.
