Senate: Dem 47, GOP 46, Tossup 7 (and GOP LEADS in 6 of these 7).
Rasmussen Reports ^ | 9/15/2010 | Rasmussen Reports

Posted on 09/15/2010 8:51:37 AM PDT by Notwithstanding

New polling in Ohio has moved that state's U.S. Senate race from Toss-Up to Leans Republican.

Other recent changes came from polling in Alaska, Kentucky, North Carolina and West Virginia, Washington.

Current projections suggest that the Democrats would hold 47 seats after Election Day while the Republicans would hold 46. Seven states are in the Toss-Up category (California, Colorado, Illinois, Nevada, Wisconsin, Washington and West Virginia. All seven Toss-Ups are seats currently held by Democrats

Republicans have the edge in five Democratic-held Senate seats--Arkansas, Indiana, North Dakota, Delaware and Pennsylvania.

At the moment, no Republican-held seats appear headed for the Democratic column.

Rasmussen has been polling both Castle and O’Donnell vs. the Democrat Coons for some weeks, now. In most recent poll, Coons was leading O’Donnell. That will be changing, soon, I suspect....

I usually take the day after Presidential elections off, on the theory that I may be up late into the night waiting for returns to come in.

Except for 2008, when I couldn’t even bear to watch.

My prediction; GOP with a 52 strong majority in the Senate and a tidal wave in the House. In two years, Obama is toast.

“Rasmussen moved Delaware from leans R to leans D last night.”

That’s okay. We can and will overcome that. If everyone would donate say $5 to Christines campaign that would probably do the trick. Her dimoKKKRAT opponent is said to have a two million dollar warchest.

Portman's had a decent 5-10 pt lead for a while now.

WOW. That second graph should be pasted on every single GOP poster in America and thrown up every time some Dem talks about deficits being caused by Republican policies.

(and it takes an 0bama to give us GOP senators in California, Wisconsin and Nevada)

Trouble is, we shouldn't need "an Obama" to give us GOP Senators from Nevada or Alaska, Arkansas, Dakotas, Carolinas, Colorado, Louisiana, Missouri, Montana, Utah, Virginia etc.

GOP should easily carry 2 (two) conservative Senators from 30+ states, thus giving filibuster-proof majority in the Senate in any given election year. Especially if they nationalize the congressional elections which GOP Central has failed to do time and time again not only in mid-terms but also in Presidential elections years, with the exception of 1994 (Gingrich and Contract With America). Representatives / House may be different due to population density (which will be changed slightly in GOP favor after last Census) and gerrymandering, but with a good "ground game" and nationalization defeating phony "conservative, blue dog Democrats" it could be easily done to achieve a decent margin of majority.

If GOP Central doesn't understand this simple concept, it needs a lobotomy... and hopefully, the Tea Party movement is an instrument which will be used to perform it.

They hold the edge in North Dakota and Arkansas?

According to Politico the Democrat can't even poll better than 25% in North Dakota.

Nor better than 35% in Arkansas.

And the number of undecideds are so small as to be a non-issue in both cases.

He has indicated it is now 48-45, moving Delaware from “Leans Republican” to “Leans Democrat”.

That is within the MOE. Hardly the 11 point deficit that was being thrown around on the talk shows last evening. And they haven't even started to pound on the dem yet (who is an admitted Marxist). We can do three points in two months. It went from an easy RINO pickup to a solid conservative one we are going to have to work for. But did anyone think that defeating the entrenched socialist scum was going to be easy.

No, i meant that he now has the senate at 48 democrats, 45 republicans. (As opposed to the 47 democrats, 46 republicans he had when he assumed Castle would win in Delaware).

Nobody has a post-election poll for Delaware yet, and the first one is likely to look bad for O’Donnell.

That would be nice, but that's what everybody thought about Clinton after the tidal wave in 1994 elections. GOP has a way of shooting themselves in the foot, and then committing seppuku by choosing Bob Doles and John McCains of this world. And current GOP leadership is much weaker and softer on issues, intellectually and in conservative resolve / commitment, than the one in 1994.
