We need help in Massachusetts, Missouri, Virginia, Wisconsin, Connecticut, Pennsylvania, etc.
If its a close election, the Democrats are safe. These polls are all taken on the basis of the 2008 turnout model. I think they are off and if its a Romney blowout - Democrats are vulnerable in all but Deep Blue States. We could even see a few upsets in this election.
Let the Democrats think they have in the bag.
I agree with the people that think whoever wins the WH will also win the Senate.
Despite early foot-in-mouth disease I still think Akin can win in Missouri. What is happening in MA is beyond my comprehension. Montana looks it is going to be real squeeker, but hopefully there and in Virginia Romney will provide some coat-tails. A 50-50 Senate is probably the best one can hope for.
Please, Dear God, let these polls be wrong.
Even if Dems hold Senate and Pubs keep House, with a Romney win, all these Executive Orders can be undone and he can do a few Obama-workarounds for a change......
He can also work to have agreeable Dem Senators to not vote for Reid and send that SOB back to Nevada.
People do not be ignorant..
Not on the list.
I’m sure the liberal base will be hitting the Senate Dems hard to block absolutely everything Romney wants to do once that is their one outlet to attack Republicans.
The Romney administration will be off to a very bad start if he can’t repeal Obamacare.
In Mass. Warren is a fake indian and real communist.
Miss. has Mccaskill with her corrupt husband selling favors out of the senate cafeteria.
Wisc. has baldwin, a classic liberal with vague ideas of fairness and strong supporter of Obamacare against well known ex governor.
I can’t find what all of this pearl clutching is about.. The states that are shone with a Dem lead are clearly within margin of error, or a bit old.. The MO is in our favor, and barring a massive snafu, I’m feeling comfortable..
I think Rs win VA and WI.
Boy, I agree with you on the MA. race. Elizabeth Warren is the phoniest, most unlikeable candidate but she seems to be pulling ahead. They counted Scott out against Coakley but I fear for this seat.
If MA vots for Warren, they are dumber than I thought.
I think they left Mandel off the list because Ohio is not as close a race as any of these listed here (except Maine). The Dem is winning it by more than 5 points.
Ohio (D hold) Real Clear Politics Average: Brown 47.8%, Mandel 42.2%
Yep, forgot OH. Rs will pick that one up also in addition to WI and VA.
interesting, I don’t see any dem hitting 50
Could be split ticket voting. A lot of that going on. Democrats are abandoning Obama and are not being seen within a mile of him.
They can make life difficult for Romney but if they have a near death experience at the polls, it will make them cooperative at least in the short term. Then again, its the House that appropriates and spends money.
Sherrod Brown is an Obama clone.
I think if R/R takes OH, Josh Mandel will win also.
