last map. I really don't have any Idea which seriously flawed candidate will win in VA. They're both scum. I also don't have any Idea about NJ. Kean should win, but that Democrat machine is a huge hurdle, and he doesn't seem to be doing much of anything to get over it. The result is I went with both incumbents. Also with things the way they are in MI I believe there is an outside chance of a shock here, but its only an outside chance. We'll have to see if MI voters are willing to reward the Dems for totally screwing up thier state economy when they actually get in the booth, or whether they want to join the rest of the nation in our thriving economy.

Well, this is my lsat prediction. Have to wait till tues now.prediction Map

This map is fairly plausible. I think the Dems will either defend MD or win in MT though.prediction Map

 By: meejer (R-NC) - 2006-11-04 @ 23:23:27

Not me. But they will both be close. Not so much MT.prediction Map

Yeah, you're right. Tester will win by more than recently expected.prediction Map

I agree with db, Tester will win by a margin of 5-10%.prediction Map

Momentum is on Burns' side right now. I may have to update my prediction on that race pretty soon. prediction Map

I have to agree with RfD. MT has gotten close all of a sudden and could be closer than previosuly thought.prediction Map

 By: Rock_nj (D-NJ) - 2006-11-05 @ 02:01:12

MT was hit by a barrage of later RNC commercials. It will be close. Who knows? Burns does have the advantage of historical voting alligences leaning Republican in MT. That's an important factor to consider. Can Tester overcome it?

MD could go either way, but for the same reason, a traditionally Democratic state is more likely to break for the Democrat in a close race.

Glad you came to your senses in NJ and PA.

I've had PA going to Casey for more than 2 wks. Evidintly Your powers of observation are as poor as you progostication abilities. And in case you didn't notice I have it as a toss-up and believe Casey will win even though my gut still says Santorum. I know it would be a "shocker" and it would be one I'd welcome more than any other.

In case you havn't read my commentary I in no way am assuming a menendez victory. In fact, I think this will turn out to be one of if not the closest races in the country. Straight toss-up.

Tester will not win. He will go down in flames just as the Democrat darling Ford has. What would you say his chances are now libs...I estimate them at ZERO. Have a nice day.

Yet another moronic "zero chance" comment. I thought you had gotten past those.

Who really cares? I have yet to see a major difference between Whitehouse and Chafee besides trade. Even if he wins, I'll bet he'll switch parties if it means a Dem majority.prediction Map

Hey, meejer, how's this look:

Despite all the cheerleading on the right, Steele has not closed the deal in MD. Cardin is still holding a slight lead and in a Democratic state like MD, that translates into a win.

TN, I agree, it appears to be in the Republican column.

MT, MO and VA are all tossups; however, you can not discount the majority of polls in all three races that show Democrats ahead. Given historical voting patterns leaning Republican, I think MT and VA will be very close and could break either way. Claire has been ahead, slightly, in a number of polls in MO over the past week. Given the neutrality of MO, I would think Ms. McCaskill will win by a hair.

In Virginia, Webb Leaps Ahead of Allen
In Virginia's U.S. Senate race, a new SurveyUSA poll shows Jim Webb (D) has surged ahead of Sen. George Allen (R-VA) in the last poll of the campaign.

Webb leads 52% to 44% among likely voters.

Unless Osama makes his appearance in the next 20 hours, Dems will get at least a tie in the Senate.prediction Map

 By: Rock_nj (D-NJ) - 2006-11-06 @ 12:44:31

Osama Bin Laden ---> Enter Stage Right!

That would be too much to handel if OBL showed up on election eve.

I would definitely lean towards Webb winning in VA, it is trending that way, but since VA is a Republican state in Senate races, it will be close.

meejer

Since you seem to like generic ballots so much now, here's one for you:

Democrats Show More Interest in Elections
A new Fox News poll gives Democrats a 49% to 36% lead in the generic congressional ballot.

In addition, there's more evidence of a motivation gap. "More Democrats (37% ) than Republicans (26%) say they are extremely interested in tomorrow’s elections, and more Democrats (89%) than Republicans (81%) say they plan to vote for their party’s candidate in their district."

Oh, but I forgot, FOX News has so much liberal bias! Why don't they just take it straight from the DNC?

Unbelievable!

This race has so many similarities to the Kaine-Kilgore race. The polls, with the exception of the one above, match. Kilgore launched a barrage of negative ads in the last week, just like Allen smeared Webb in the last two weeks. Kilgore was favored for much of the race (though not by much), just like Allen.

And lastly,

KAINE WON! JUST LIKE WEBB WILL IN 30 HOURS AND 5 MINUTES!

The republicans won 3 elections in a row, and the right thinks they will win all the time and that isn't going to happen.
