Skip to comments.US Senate Predictions for 2006 (Republicans maintain majority with help of Joe Lieberman!)
Posted on 10/29/2006 10:55:26 AM PST by charlie5
Well with one week away from the 2006 elections, I would like to share with you my prediction for control of the US Senate.
Steele has a better chance than any other republican, and he is strongly pro-life
he is close
Tester is going to take Montana (not because of any love for the liberals---just because Burns is a jerk in public) and I predict McCaskill will win in Missouri
Lieberman said he was going to caucus with the dems. Why would a republican vote for him anyway? He is using the republicans for money and votes and if he wins he will run right back to the demoncraps.I think the money and votes should go to OUR guy. Casting a vote for Lieberman is assuring a closer and more than likely democrat victory. It's crazy.
Wrong! We surely win in TN and MO. Maybe we add Kean in NJ. As to Lieberman, he is and will be a "Rat".
I cannot believe the GOP has put so much effort into helping Lieberman. It is ridiculous. The poor republican has been shunned like Kat Harris. It is sickening
This is like libs trying to protect terrorists---it will blow back in their faces
MO will remain Republican. Talent is a strong candidate, an outstanding legislator and many Missourians are pleased to support him in his upcoming campaign for re-election.
Doom and gloom vanity predictions from a newbie.
Your predictions are ridiculous. Back to DU with you.
Sorry, Charlie. We won't need Smokin' Joe. We won't lose anything, net. The only two I'm at all worried about now are Santorum and DeWine, but we'll gain Steele and Kean for a wash. If the trend continues, however, we very well might be looking at Bouchard and Kennedy sneaking in wins, along with DeWine and Santorum, in which case Smokin' Joe could actually give us . . . (gulp) 60, and cloture.
I agree, but the democrats are going to pull out all the election fraud stops on this one, so that is what worries me. If the fraud can be mitigated, the republicans will keep MO.
No ay that we're goping to lose OH, RI, PA, MO,TN and MN. It'll be a bad night if we lose 2 of those...Ohio and PA. And there's no reason to suspect that Lieberman will caucus with the GOP..he's said that he'll caucus with the 'Rats and I suspect that if he wins he'll rejoin the 'Rats officially as soon as he can.
Lieberman would caucus with al-Qaeda before he ever voted for Republican committee chairmen.
I would add Kean to that list. I think he will win.
I am sticking with my prediction. Very little turn over.
This will be very much like 1990.
"By the way, last time I looked at TradeSports, the betting was running 75% that the GOP retains control of the Senate, 33% that it retains controlof the House."
Almost the same thing Bill Kristol said, earlier today on Fox News.
I think he said 4 to 1 the House is lost. And 3 to 1 to keep the Senate.
Maybe Kristol gets his predictions from the gaming biz. Probably FAR MORE realistic than the overweighted biased polls in the media.
Lieberman is still a Democrat. He will never join the GOP except for a couple of votes.
There isnt any dopubt of that in my miond or the minds of Democrats. Of course Leiberman will be a Democrat.
OK...please refresh my memory for l990?
Forget it - this analysis is totally wrong. No way are we going to suffer a massive defeat like this.
