Nine days out: Post your election predictions
I'm gonna say 222 Democratic seats in the House, but a gut wrenching 50-50 tie in the Senate (we'll lose Tennessee & Virginia, but win in Montana, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Minnesota, Maryland, Rhode Island, and Missouri. In the end, Lieberman will organize with the Democrats.

2. I'm guessing...
22 seats in the house, five in the senate, and a torrent of bitching about election fraud in every close race where a Democrat loses.

3. I think there will be another, huge Republican scandal...
and we'll have another six Republickers resign before the election.

And it'll be something really, really weird and outrageous.

Like videotaped footage of Rick Santorum and other Republickers feasting on the flesh of live, screaming babies.

Which means that Rick Santorum would then be able to rally his base, claiming that Democrats "played the cannibal card" by releasing the footage right before the election.

But I think the Republickers will keep three seats in the senate-- LIEberman (who we all know is really a Repuke) Santorum, and Katherine Harris.

And then, a month later, all three will die as part of a mass-suicide in a UFO worshiping cult.

8. Diebolding will rise to record levels. Media will ignore it.
Facing what would, in the real world, be a rout at the polls and the loss of both houses for the Republics, vote-flipping will be used in EVERY race that looks close enough to steal. Given a fair vote count, the GOP loses its ass and the flashlight it once used to find it.

:freak:

9. Not so sure about Joe (Asshole, Con)
I think if he is the deciding vote he will go the other way.

11. He's said pretty explicitly that he'll caucus with out side. He's not a fool...
and he has to know how seasonal any Republican niceness toward him right now must be. Lieberman didn't get into the Senate by being gullible (or by being a saint). He knows where he's got his chips invested and it's not on the majority side of the aisle. Lieberman's voting record is far far to the left of Lincoln Chafee. There's not reason to think he'll jump sides other than the fact that you don't like him.

13. I'm Not Predicting Numbers in the House
Edited on Wed Nov-01-06 12:25 AM by AnnieBW
But I think that a LOT more seats are gonna turn than what the MS media is saying. There will be some BIG turnovers, like Reynolds and possibly Hastert. In the Senate we'll keep Maryland, pick up Tennessee, Virginia, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Rhode Island, and Montana. Holy Joe will retain his seat in CT and organize with the Dems. It's too close to call in NJ and MO for my magic 8-ball. Cruella will go down to a flaming defeat in Florida with <25% of the vote. Governorships will go overwhelmingly Dem, including MA, MD, and FL.

14. I wish you were right about Tennessee and Virginia. I've sent both money.
But I think both of those won't flip. The Florida governer's race is also looking bad. But New Jersey and probably Missouri will make up for those losses.

17. Yeah, then wait until GOP candidates start running ads
With our candidates shown campaigning with Kerry? Unless this story disappears soon it could swing the election.
