    It's been a fun ride watching our list of Vulnerable Dems grow and the predictions of our six "Experts" move in the GOP direction week after week. But today is the day when we cash in on all of the hard work. I hope everyone has voted and is ready for the Super Bowl of midterm elections. Grab your popcorn, settle back in that easy chair and watch the Dems squirm while they explain to all of us that it really is just anger over the "Bush Recession" and not Obama's policies that is causing the American public to turn...

    Murphy: GOP using 'Florida-style' tactics By: PETER HALL Bucks County Courier Times The Congressman charged Republicans with using unfair tactics to give their candidate for the 8th Congressional District an edge. Congressman Patrick Murphy blasted Bucks County Republicans for using "Florida-style" tactics to deny voters the right to participate in Tuesday's election, which includes the hotly contested race between Murphy and his Republican challenger Mike Fitzpatrick. Murphy's statement in a brief news conference Wednesday afternoon came shortly before Democratic Party lawyers filed a response to Republican claims that Murphy's campaign is behind an effort to mislead voters into applying for...

    At KeyHouseRaces we have been logging the lastest polls for the House races in play since early September. Although we initialy posted both Dem and GOP internal polls we gave that idea up when we started to recognize that, in general, these polls were highly skewed in favor of the party doing the polling. The Nate Silver estimate for that skewing is about 6 points. That would put Dem and GOP polls 12 points apart when polling the same district. Posting these is clearly a waste of time. So we don't post internal polls anymore, even the friendly ones. Here...

    House Projection for October 11 October marches on, and so does the House generic ballot polling. Last week Republicans were on the rebound and this week every single generic is showing Republicans back on top, as has not been the case lately. So let’s see what the damage is. As usual, to run my projection I take the recent generic ballot polls from Real Clear Politics, subtract out the undecideds and third party votes to get a pure two party vote, then compare that with the two party vote of 2008. From there, I take a weighted average of the...

    Charlie Cook has just updated the ratings for WI-03 and NC-07 to Leans D and that was enough to push these districts onto out Master List.And we've made a policy change on how we add and subtract races from the Master List. We will keep our basic criteria for putting a race on to the Master list. That criteria is pretty simple: The district must be rated as LEANS D or better (from a GOP perspective) by at least 2 of our 'Experts'.As we add Dems to the list we will take Republicans we view as VERY SAFE off the...
