Final Predictions!: Democrats take majority of Statehouses included critical Ohio, Colorado and New York.

Maine: Baldacci is bumbling at the end, he should win with a plurality, but this race has been unstable.

New Hampshire: Lynch by landslide.

Vermont: Douglas doesn't fail, wins with over 50%.

Massachusetts: Deval Patrick makes history, is elected first black governor of Bay State.

Rhode Island: Carcieri survives a scare and holds on for victory.

Connecticut: Rell will win and has the chance of breaking Rowland's record of 63% in 1998.

New York: They should've been engraving Spitzer's name on the governor's office months ago...not a contest by any means.

Pennsylvania: Swan is sunk, Rendell will win by several touchdowns.

Ohio: No sweat, Strickland takes Ohio for the Democrats, their sweetest win. Strickland will also sweep on his coattails a Senate seat and a couple of House seats too.

Michigan: DeVos is dead, Granholm easily pulls out a convincing win.

Maryland: This one will be a squeaker, but Ehrlich has the momentum. Ehrlich scrapes by in a major upset.

South Carolina: Sanford stays.

Georgia: Sonny Perdue wins and without Reed down ticket.

Florida: Davis is catching up, and the race is unstable, but Crist should be able to pull out a victory of at leats a couple of points.

Alabama: Riley recovered very early on and has since let comfortably.

Tennessee: This one is the biggest joke race of them all. Bredeson is in easily.

Illinois: Lincoln's Party flops again in Lincoln Land. Blagojevich will win, though he hardly earned it. With enemies like these, who needs friends?

Wisconsin: Close, but Doyle has never been behind. Doyle should win.

Minnesota: This one is up in the air, but with how badly the Republicans are doing down ticket here, I'm thinking Pawlenty is gonners.

Iowa: This race was consistently close till the very end and has since broken towards the Democrats.

Arkansas: The Democrats are back in Little Rock!

Texas: The most bizarre race in the nation, ends anticlimatically with a very low percentage win for Perry.

Oklahoma: Where Henry comes winning!

Kansas: Sebelius has been a shrewd operator and will be handsomely rewarded with a second term.

Nebraska: Heineman, and how!

South Dakota: Mike Rounds wins despite controversy. In fact it's been too quiet.

New Mexico: Richardson wins, but you already knew that.

Colorado: Apart from Ohio, this is the Democrats' second big snag. Ritter didn't fritter his lead away, the way O'Malley did.

Wyoming: Freudenthal will win a landslide after his initial squeaker.

Idaho: I don't know, but something tells me a surpise win here will be the icing on the cake for the Democrats.

Nevada: Gibbons has really screwed up what otherwise would've been a coronation. Titus has a chance, but my gambler's spirit tells me to bet on Gibbons.

Oregon: Kulongoski has benefitted from a crappy opponent. He'll win unimpressively.

Califorina: He'll be back! The Governator, just like in the 2003 original, comes back from a deficit to win convincingly. Hasta la vista Angelides!

Alaska: Pallin will win, but this race will be going on to the wee hours of the morning.

Hawaii: Lingle only has to worry about voters not showing up because she's so certain to win. But in a Democratic state like Hawaii, a Republican can't be too careless.
