The current US Senate split: 49 Dem, 2 Independents, and 49 Reps
(both independents caucus with Dems).
Current split of 35 Senate seats up for election: 12 D, 23 R
What will be the Democratic vs. Republican Split be after the election results Tuesday take effect
If you want to specifically handicap a few:
A. Chambliss (GA)
B. Dole (NC)
C. Coleman (MN)
D. Stevens (AK)
E. Gordon (OR)
F. Sununu (NH)
G. Landrieu (LA)
H. MCConell (KY)
- Any other surprises?
My prediction the Dems “net” 6 seats making the Senate split:
55 Dems, 2 Independents, and 44 Reps.
With the Independents making an effective 57 Seat Dem. Senate (altho Lieberman as always is a wild card)
A. Chambliss wins
B. Dole Loses
C. Coleman Loses
d. Stevens Loses
E. Gordon Loses
F Sununu Loses
G. Landrieu Wins
H. MCConnell wins
- I would not be shocked if Mississippi breaks down if the African American vote really turns out at tremendous levels. I would not be shocked if there are hours and hours of waiting more McCain than Obama voters in Ms say “ferget it” and go home. If that happens, I would no be shocked if Wicker loses … not saying “so” just that I would not be shocked.
