Very bad sign. This means maybe 50-52.

No wave.

As long as they’re in control of the young’s indoctrination, America’s future is not bright. DOE, NEA et al have to go.

Zogby and Rasmussen both said on Sean’s show 50-55. We should never have let the “wave” expectation take hold. It was never going to be the wipeout some are still talking about.

This was a big one. If we can't get this seat there is likely no huge wave.

There may not even be a majority. This is an R+9 district....if that can’t be won, then what can in this environment?

Uh...wrong.

Quite clearly there is a “wave”. What you all are hoping for is a “super” wave. I’d like that sure but 50-60 pickup is more then good. My hopes at the start of the year were just to take the House by any margin necessary.

Its still early. IND is looking very good though. KY-6 was always a strong Democratic district. I think 60 is about where we’ll be when the night is over and 8+ Senate seat pickups.

Super wave. LOL. First I've heard that one. I think we're going to be just fine, when all is said and done.

People need to relax. We’re not going to win every close race, but we’re going to win a majority of them. With the current condition the country is in sanity will prevail. Nothing is more persuasive than the economy. Stay positive!

Well said. Obviously, those who expected huge 80-100+ gains in the House and a takeover of the Senate will be disappointed, but 50+ House/6-8 Senate was the consensus going into today from RCP, Cook, Sabato et all and it’s still early. Even 60+ is still a good possibility, and how is that bad news??

Calm down everyone.

Cripes, CNN is more confident of a GOP blowout.

50-60 seats is a pretty big deal.

Nate Silver at 538 had this rated as only a 41% chance of a takeover. If it was rated in the 50’s or 60’s I would be worried. I still believe we will be around 50 seats which is still an impressive takeover. The Rats had a year to have the fraud and SMEAR PAC’s in place, unlike 94.

Yes, but the fact people will put Reid back in office, and some other Dems with the state of the economy, our spending and debt, and the bastard of a healthcare bill that was passed, is shocking to me.

We will take the Senate too. Don’t be so pessimistic. Just watch the body language of the talking heads on CNN and MSNBC. It’s more telling than anything else.

I agree, but let’s not take anything for granted, either. Vote no matter how hopeless your candidate’s chances may look, and help others get to the polls if you can. Let’s play all four quarters of this game.

Wave is happening. Paul was not suppose to win. He did. You folks are buying to the media spin over the last couple days that we would push 100 seats. That BS. Anything over 50 is great. Stay positive.

I was listening to the 94 elections last night on youtube.

Now we know that was a blowout, a gamechanger for the repubs. But if you listen to the coverage, that wasn’t obvious. It was more like, “there are some republican pickups”.

I told my kids to expect the same kind of reporting tonight. Every republican pickup will be, “Oh, a pickup.” and the dem wins will be pushed with videos and screaming happy dems and anchors saying, well those are disappointed republicans!

You have to admit that this is probably not the greatest news of the night. KY lead the way in the disaster that was the 2008 election.

Democrats probably punched the GOTV into high gear. This does not bode well for folks like Angle and O’Donnell

There are bound to be a few disappointments, but from an overall standpoint, I don’t think there’s any reason to worry. The polls at RCP had this race +14 for the Dem in July and September, followed by an October poll that had the Dem still up by four, so I’m not sure how realistic it was to expect a win here anyway. If Barr won, it was always going to be a mild upset.

A tsunami is not happening but a wave is and in a good year we’d be happy with half as many pickups. We’re doing great tonight with everything the MSM has been throwing at us.

Relax!

The media told us he was a cracked pot nut. The close polling had him up and down. The wizards of smart said it was not looking good as recently as this weekend.

Looks like the Democrat strongholds may have reported first because now Barr is only 3,500 votes behind with 30% left to be counted.

1000 votes behind with about 100 precincts left to report.
