Senate after November 2nd

I can't believe this, but if the polls are right and the election were held today, the Senate would be TIED 50/50...
I would have never thought it..that number comes from giving Dems California and Illinois while giving the GOP Nevada and Washington...
Are liberal policies that unpopular that we get the biggest shift in power in 100 years?

The only problem is that this November's vote, no matter how many seats the GOP picks up, is still meaningless as long as we have Republicans like, Olympia Snowe, John McCain, Mel Martinez, Lisa Murkowski...

I disagree.
First, you stop hard core socialism
Second, you show some of the "leaders" of the GOP that actual, real conservatives can and do win..we can stop thinking we have to nominate people like McCain..

I read this morning that the GOP is starting to get this point. So there is hope.

I am anxiously awaiting the polling results at the end of the day on 11/02.

oh ya, I watch from about 730 or 8pm central til its over..
It was so funny..I was in a pretty crazy and wild social frat in 2000 yet we had 12 people in our "TV" room watching that election without anyone so much as talking for a good 6 hours

You are delirious. Regardless of whether you were too busy teabagging each other in 2000 to talk for six hours, there's no way the GOPPers win the Senate. Even with all the foreign money from the Saudis and Chinese to elect Republican teabaggers, you will be lucky to get the House.

Nonsense. RealClearPolitics has the Democrats winning 184, the Republicans winning 212, with 39 tossups. This means the GOP only needs to win 5 of 39, or 12-13% of the House tossups to clinch.

Senate is the different story. There are six tossups: Colorado, Nevada, Illinois, California, West Virginia, and Washington. The most likely scenario is that the GOP win Nevada, West Virginia, and Colorado, while the Democrats hold California, Illinois, and Washington, leaving a Democrat Senate at 51-49. There's a chance the GOP can sweep all six, given Illinois is a dead heat with a lot of undecideds, Boxer is not above 50% in any poll, and Rossi is ahead in a few polls. It depends on how events break.
