looks like Oberstar went down to defeat in the wave which was monumental on the House side. And looks like Dayton will squeak by in the vote...

Bennet is back on top so my -6 might be right with an exchange of Penn (really close) for Nevada (not so close-nice ground gain)

I don't see how Buck pulls this out.

The only counties yet to fully report are Boulder and Arapahoe...Bennet is ahead in both of them and his lead in Boulder county will probably grow even more.

albaleman,

What the h*ll happened with Jim Oberstar!!!? He had NO excuse to lose!

 By: albaleman (D-MN) 2010-11-04 @ 17:20:34 prediction Map
I agree with you, he shouldn't have lost, but here's why he lost:

1. He is an insider, having served 36 years in the house.

2. His district isn't as liberal as it used to be and he had an excellent opponent.

3. He didn't realize how vulnerable he was until it was too late.

IL called for Quinn!

 By: MilesC56 (D-LA) 2010-11-04 @ 18:33:31 prediction Map
YES!!!!!

That was a pleasant surprise.

Quinn really has my respect; he was the only Dem to survive the Rustbelt GOP wave.

 By: MilesC56 (D-LA) 2010-11-04 @ 18:34:26 prediction Map
Still, Oberstar has done SOO much for his district.

I did the sense that he underestimated Cravaack though...

 By: dnul222 (D-MN) 2010-11-04 @ 19:50:34 prediction Map
I agree with the Quinn comment. I am happy with a few other governor surprises too. Basically thought the Dems reclaimed blue states while the GOP reclaimed red states PLUS took the big prizes in the rust belt...more power to them in redistricting...

Washington called for Murray!

 By: albaleman (D-MN) 2010-11-06 @ 10:28:07 prediction Map
Well, I think it's time to write a wrap on the election:

I was very disappointed with the results, but of course I knew I would be coming in. With the statehouses I thought we did horrible. I certainly didn't expect that we would lose so many of them. With the Senate I felt we did marginally better than expected, winning suprise wins in Nevada and Colorado. I also felt we did slightly better than expected with the Governorships, winning upsets in Connecticut and Illinois even as we lost Florida. But the house is unacceptable. I can't believe we lost so many house seats.

I liked Foley, but the Dems need all the governorships they can get! They'll be down to 20 after this year, which is very low and they could lose up to 4 in 2012!!

WA will likley flip parties, but McKenna has moved to the right, so we'll see...

Bev Perdue's popularity has been stuck in the mid-30's. I hope the GOP nominates a moron against her.

MT is an unknown; Schweitzer is still popular, but its a GOP-leaning swing state.

Then, Manchin's seat may flip; WV is still a Dixiecrat state, but the GOP bench is getting stronger. The Demcorats could probably find a good candidate, but Capito may run.

The Vermont legislature has (unsurprisingly) chosen Peter Shumlin to be Vermont's next Governor.

Well, I think the Tea Party base that put Palin on a pedastal might just care.

 By: albaleman (D-MN) 2010-11-14 @ 12:29:44 prediction Map
Sorry CR but she's not just any conservative. And this is not just a defeat for her. It's a monumental defeat for her. Her candidate in her home state has been beaten by a write-in candidate. That's embarrassing.

On the other hand she won't admit Murkowski won. She'll just say Murkowski stole the election.

 By: CR (--MO) 2010-11-14 @ 14:39:27 prediction Map
Her candidate was beaten by a sitting US Senator, an incumbent, who's family has a lot of name recognition and power in a fairly small state (as far as population goes that is). Murkowski ran an excellent campaign and she dealt Miller some fatal blows. So it wasn't just any write-in off the street. And Lisa is still caucusing with our party so the seat remains in GOP hands. McAdams didn't even come close to either Miller or Murkowski.

But I did see that Palin's former Lt Governor, now governor, did win reelection. See supported him too though it was not as high profiled as the senate race.

 By: albaleman (D-MN) 2010-11-14 @ 16:34:18 prediction Map
Furthermore, there is a LOT of bad blood between the Murkowski family and Palin. The way Palin got the GOP nod for governor was by beating Frank Murkowski, the incumbent.


 By: Liberalrocks (D-CA) 2010-11-14 @ 16:57:39 prediction Map
This is a blow to Palin no matter how you slice it!

 By: KS21 (I-KS) 2010-11-14 @ 17:39:32 prediction Map
Agreed.

 By: CR (--MO) 2010-11-15 @ 20:33:51 prediction Map
Her former Lt Governor is still governor so I like to think of it as a draw. Sarah makes her endorsements and people are free to make up their own minds. Simple as that.

In Alaska. Sean was going to win anyway, because he's a Republican and because he's not completely crazy.

 By: CR (--MO) 2010-11-16 @ 20:37:35 prediction Map
He was still her Lt Governor.

Hey any word on what is happening with the governor's race in Minnesota? Afraid I've lost track.

Well, it's going to a recount barring a miracle. Dayton still leads by about 8,500 votes, or about 0.4%. Following that the Emmer campaign is gearing up for a likely legal challenege.

Well I think it's time for my closing comments. As I said earlier, this rebuke of the Democrats (or more accurately incumbent party) was disappointing but not unexpected. Any time the unemployment rate is in the vicinity 10% the incumbent party will be soundly defeated. Hopefully we can bounce back in 2012.

I've had a great time on the atlas, it's been a blast. There's really nothing quite like it. To KS, BushCountry, Miles, ConservRep, colin, d-russ, Liberalrocks, dnul, and all the other posters on the atlas, thank you, you are what makes this site special.

ONWARD TO 2012!

One last comment from me to my fellow MN...what do you think of the lawsuit in our state for the governorship...we used to have such a nice place to run elections...

 By: albaleman (D-MN) 2010-11-20 @ 17:07:09 prediction Map
It's really too bad. There used to be a common courtesy that existed among things like this, but that doesn't exist anymore.

The fact is that the Emmer folks have absolutely no chance of winning and I think they know that. A recount almost never changes the results by more than 1,000 votes. But they'll keep it going as long as they can so Pawlenty can stay in office, regardless of the cost (to the taxpayers), because that's the next best thing for them. So much for "cutting spending".

And I, like many Minnesotans, was disgusted at the behavior of Tony Sutton at his press conference the day after the election. This is a grown man in a position of leadership, and yet he acted like a 4 year old who wasn't getting his way. Embarrassing.
