The poll is here.

So, I have to change my prediction on this race to Dem. Raese may still win it, but the odds are low. So assuming Rossi really wins in Washington, it appears that the GOP takeover of the Senate was stopped in the hollows of the WV hills - quite an oddity for a state that holds Obama in such low esteem.

It would be amusing if Manchin won 52-48 in this year.

It's really Raese's fault for his hick ad controversy. He had it in the bag but fumbled it.

To be fair, that's not so much Raese's fault so much as it is the folks who were hiring for the ad, but ... yeah.

Well, it was also stopped two months ago in the quiet state of Delaware.

I doubt if the hick thing had much to do with it. The mansion ads and the minimum wage thing, I think are what eroded Raese at the margins. That is what Manchin's attack ads were about. Plus Manchin went heavily blue dog.

As usual, the GOP bungles races late in the game and makes what should have been a great night just pretty good.

The wave is dead as soon as Manchin is declared the winner on election night.

There are no races where the GOP candidate surprises with a win due to a late surge.  Some wave...

What a bunch of overblown bunk.

And there you have it!  Tongue  You know, the borders of the US expand beyond WV. Just a thought.

The Republicans might just win a senate race in Washington and almost win against a governor with 70% approval ratings. How would that  not be a wave? Stop embarrassing yourself.

The only state that looks odd to me is Colorado. If the Republicans are winning the generic ballot by 10 points, they should be carrying Colorado regardless of candidate. That may happen in the end but it's very, very close.

Oh, Christ, we've got another sg. I'm going to have a headache for a long time if tomorrow night is anything less than perfect, I think...

I don't know what to make of this. Obama is so unpopular in WV so I'm having a hard time believing Manchin will win.

There are good reasons to remain at least a little bit wary of assuming much about this race until the results start coming through, but these numbers certainly seem reasonable.

I still think this race is going to break one way. I think it will be towards the Democrat, but I wouldn't be surprised if Raese wins.
