how do you rate our chances in november?
with 10 being we win both houses in a landslide and 1 being bush gains more seats?

right now, i'm going with a 7. the trends are going our way, allen just made his race competitive and the GOP will have to spend money to protect their supposed '08 contender. brown is holding strong against dewine(assuming no hijinks from blackwell stick), the recnt terror threats don't seem to be scaring people in the least.

i'm optimistic, but the races are so jerrymandered that the deck is stacked against us. and lieberman is doing his damndest to fuck things up in connecticut.

still, bush is poison to his party and i think the house going our way is guaranteed with the senate odds at 50-50. much better than i felt a month or two ago.

4. 9 - Diebold - Disenfranchisement = 5
It's 50/50 right now, but that could change if the Democrats get smart about this campaign and go for the Republican jugular.

5. The jugular is the vote count and the suppression.
Every voter in the US should be verifying their registry with their local BOE now and monitor it on a weekly basis going forward.

6. There's a lot of disgusted rethugs out there.



And the only way the party can win them back is by disowning Smirky and I don't see that happening. So I think our chances are pretty good.

7. five-minus...
...D's pick up 4-6 House seats, and the senate is between a one seat loss and a two seat pick up.

8. Dems will get enough votes for landslides and major upheavals.
But will those votes be fairly tallied? THAT's, literally, the trillion dollar question.

9. Very strong -- a 7 or 8 ?
I'm assuming winning one house with a good likelihood of winning both houses.
