One minor hitch... I clicked your link, was asked to login, successfully logged in and was redirected to a page that didn't link to Senate predictions (it did to Governor predictions, and to 2004, and...) I was still able to make a prediction though, I just had to return to the forum and click the link again.

I had the same problem. But it worked out for me too. I don't get one thing about the polls though. Some states seem to be listed as leans even though they have only one poll. And there are too few states overall I think?

I'm pretty sure the default settings are based off the 2000 race.  So a race which is expected to be a blowout this year may only be listed as a tossup or lean because it was fairly close in 2000.  And a race which is expected to be real close this year may be listed as a lean or even strong depending in the 2000 results.

That would probably be much more difficult, as Dave wouldn't be able to easily use the mapmaking functionality on the site (given that you couldn't simply shade a state a single percentage).

Plus, there are 435 races there.  I don't think many people have the time to make 435 predictions.

The vast majority of those 435 are not seriously contested.  I wonder if dave could set up maybe a 50 seat one.

The scores have been tabulated for the 2006 Senatorial Predictions.  These are preliminary ans subject to change.  No perfect scores - Top overall to thepolitic (I-CT) and snowguy716 (D-MN) each with a score of 57.

Something's wrong with your score calaculator: It's showing my final prediction as having a score of 0.  I'm not certain about the percentages but I got all 33 states correct as to who won.  It appears that only people who made a single prediction got their scores tabulated.

If I'd been more optimistic over Virginia, I'd have got all winners right. Sigh.
