OK, since I came up with thread first, here's the rules:
Predict total number of Senate, House, and Gov's for each party after the elections (this is after all is said and done for this cycle). Add up each person's total number off for each, and lowest wins. Tiebreaker: predict the closest Senate or Governor race in terms of VOTES (not percentage of vote). Double tiebreaker: predict the number of votes separating the closest Senate or Governor's race this cycle.

Here's mine:

Senate: 53-47 Dem, after all is said and done.

House: 222-213 GOP (counting Bernie Sanders as a Dem).

Gov's. 26-24 Dem.

Closest race: S.D. Senate

Number of votes separating closest race: 114.

I have a prediction, I predict I wont really give a rat's ass about any of this. Wont get me a pay raise either way, wont make my off time from work more enjoyable, wont effect my day to day existance. So, all this is really not that important to me.

That governors total might have to be flip-flopped, because at least 2 races in the northeast that have been projected Democrat will, absent total collapse, go Republican (Massachusetts and Rhode Island). So 26-24 Republican for Governors.
Senate goes 50-49-1 Republican.
House Republicans pick up 2 seats.
Closest Race, in a race that will lead to lawsuits for the next ten years, Republicans win Minnesota Senate race by 486 votes.




I want you to know, I agree with everything I've just said.

Senate: 49-49-2 Republicans pick up South Dakota which leads to Lincoln Chafee bolting the party to join Jim Jeffords in the I'm an unprincipled scumball independent section of the Senate.

House: 224-210-1

Gov's: 26-24 Democrat

Closest race: LA Senate runoff in December decided by a 5-4 vote of the US Supreme Court.

I have no love for Linc, but I doubt he bolts. As long as he stays a Republican in RI, he never has to worry about a primary. If he bolts Democratic, Patches Kennedy might one day think he's a big boy now, and try to knock off Chafee in a primary. Chafee will vote Democratic most of the time, but for personal reasons he'll stay Republican.

I higly doubt Louisiana goes to court. It's a straight up and down process; if nobody gets 50 tomorrow, we dod it all again with the top two in December in what would be the last race before the unconstitutional unprincipled disgraceful anit-first amendment end of soft money.

I'm going to have to agree with Grimis here on almost everything.

However, I think the GOP will see a loss in Minnesota.

A loss in Minnesota would not surprise me... especially since people seem to think they still have a dead guy as an option to vote!
Well, then again, Mondale is PRACTICALLY a dead guy...
As far as predictions go, I will only predict that no matter WHAT the result, you will see lawsuits all over the place after the election.

Senate: +1 Republican (although I think it could also end up +1 Democrat, too close to call)

House: +3 Republican (more related to redistricting than an endorsement for Bush)
