Bull Moose here. Thought I’d throw it up to the Peach Pundit crowd to play “National Pundit” to some of the other races… I’ll start.
Currently, Republicans hold a 55-45 advantage in the Senate. I predict that after November 7, the Senate will be even-steven 50-50. Republicans will lose Pennsylvania, Montana, Missouri, Ohio, and Rhode Island. It may get worse, Virginia could also fall, but I’m not ready to call it. And Tennessee is just too close to tell which way it’s going. Stem Cell Research is the surprise issue coming out of the 2006 Senate races in my book.
On the House side, currently, Republicans have a 232-203 majority. After the elections, on a small breeze I think it’s 226-209 in favor of Democrats. A moderate breeze produces a Democratic majority of 233-202. You can do the math from there. Notables losing reelection include: Deborahy Pryce, Chris Shays, Heather Wilson, Charles Taylor…
What are your predictions fellow Peach Pundits?
