You may have needed a second try, but your predictions appear to be entirely plausible.prediction Map

Well, if you went to the majority on this site, the majority still has Ohio, Oregon and California going Democratic in November, you might want to check that thought, again, Lewis.prediction Map

MLEFLO1, I'm not so sure that Blagovich, D. will lose. Part of that would be a function of third parties that are more geared towards the right, where it would much more hurt Topinka, R. than Blagovich. Also Kerry's win in Illinois in '04 was much more heavy than in Michigan (also the win by Senator Obama in '04 my help Blagovich; I think Illinois will be a state where they blame President Bush and the Republicans in Congress, in the end in November, than they will the incumbent Democratic Governor).

Although, I will agree with you MLEFLO1, that Granholm may very well lose in Michigan.

I also wouldn't go for a loss of incumbent Baldocci, D. (sp?) in Maine (I think similiar outcome to Blagovich).

And also in Minnesota's last poll, one of incumbent Pawlenty, R.'s opponents, DFL Attorney General Mike Hatch was running 10% ahead (not that will be the be all and end all), but it shows a sign of weakness in Pawlenty. Although Minnesota's primaries aren't until September.

Hey, I said I went with the majority on races where I haven't a clue whatsoever, not on all races.prediction Map
