Confidence States Won
Idaho is boggling my mind and is scaring me with its last-minute Democratic surge, so much so that I'm chalking it up as a Democratic gain. I won't be surprised if it's not, but damn, for it to even be considered as one...
Not much change elsewhere. I've downgraded Oklahoma from 70% D to 60% D, as I expected I would. It'd be nice to imagine. :)
I'm holding Texas at 40% R even though every poll has it at under 40% because I have a feeling there'll be a last-minute increase in Perry's percentage from people who can't bring themselves to vote against a guy with an R next to his name.
The breakdown of confidence goes like this:
Strong - I would be seriously, seriously surprised if the other candidate won this race. The other candidate should get nowhere near victory.
Lean - It's possible that the other candidate could win, but it's not the likely outcome. Victory here will likely be within single digits.
Tossup - I really have no idea what to think here. If the other guy won, I honestly would not be surprised. It's anybody's game, and whoever wins will win it with a very small margin.
