Skip to comments.Democrats likely to retain Senate as four critical races shift in their favor
Posted on 09/24/2012 7:06:24 PM PDT by newzjunkey
After weeks in which the fate of the Senate simmered at nearly even odds of flipping for Republicans or remaining in Democrats' control, the outlook has shifted dramatically in the Democrats' favor. The incumbent party now has an 80 percent chance of retaining its majority, according to the Signal's prediction model.
The break is largely due to critical races in Missouri, Wisconsin, Massachusetts and Virginia, all of which have favored the Republican at some point in the past month and now favor the Democratic candidate. ...

More Democrat Senators defending themselves in red states than not, so I’m not buying a word of this.
I take everything said these days with a massive Gibraltar size gain of salt. We’ll see.
I’m by no means convinced we’ve been denied the Senate majority yet.
Tom Smith has a shot in PA.
Obama is up 50 points over Romney, according to the State-Run-Media..... /sarc
I think everybody needs to read what Rush said about this today. The Left’s strategy is to try and grind us down and demoralize our turnout. Ain’t going to happen!
macaca Allen running against tax the poor Kaine...
Lieawatha has new problems that make this info obsolete, as out-of-date as her non-existent law license.
And yahoo never even saw the defeat of the dems coming in 2010!
They'll dial it back for the sake of their credibility within the final month. F 'em.
I donated to various republican Senate candidates today.
I always take what Yahoo reports seriously.
Linda McMahon looks to be competitive in CT.
I certainly hope Scott Brown wins in MA. But the MA voters have a history of overlooking jerks, liars, gay brothel supporters and even Senators who abandon women to die.
Wendy Long is the conservative candidate running against Chuck Schumer echo, Kirsten Gillebrand, but I’m not seeing any ads in NY at all. The Empire state is a lost cause.
And of course, Todd Akin took a swan dive and shot himself in the foot. He is all but lepers to the GOP.
Tommy in Wisconsin was measured by a D+10 poll. He’s running better than that and his opponent is a lightweight moonbat. We convincingly won a statewide election only 15 weeks ago. Our seats in the call centers didn’t even get cold.
I don’t think Lizzy “Fakeajawea” Warren is going to beat Scott Brown.
The repellent, harridan-like nature of his opponent aside, I can’t recall seeing such visible signs of support for a Republican candidate here in Massachusetts for a long, long time.
I will go on the record now saying that Obama will win Massachusetts but it will be a narrow margin (55 to 45).
RE: macaca Allen
Why the heck are we still dredging up this old one word sow in 2012? Can’t anybody get over this and focus on POLICY? Sheeesh !!
I gave to Romney in a solicitation mailing, then I gave some more when I ordered yards signs to piss off the idiots!
I maintain an old yahoo mail account for some basic messaging and public email uses. I get a good laugh everyday with their “news” coverage. The bias and slant in story selection, overall leftist tone and the tragically distorted headlines creates a fun-house-mirror view of the world.
Anything from yahoo news is trash and not worth a read.
Yahoo, another propaganda arm of the Democrat party.
“Lieawatha”...thanks I needed a good chuckle after a hard day.
