Rand Paul projected to win first Tea Party winner.
Coates, DeMint & Leahy projected to win.
It's looking like 50+ seats, and 7 senate seats, according to drudge. Still a long way to go till we know who's in, and who's out.
Apparently Dewey defeated Truman.
My favorite projecttion comes when polls close in California's national election, and with ZERO% reporting, the call the state for the democrat.
they are reporting that in VT right now....0% reporting, yet they are calling it for the democrat.
Exit polling. They use the districts that have been microcosms and typical in their election patterns in the past and see how those voters respond to the surveys. Is it perfect? No, ask President Kerry when they gave him the exit polling in 2004, only problem was that they surveyed early in the day when they got students and housewives who skewed Democratic and weren't typical of the electorate. they learned their lesson and have been closer since.
I think everyone would be shocked if the republicans didnt make HUGE strides in the house, took it over and at least closed the gap in the senate.
Thats what my libreal self is expecting.
It's typical for the out of power party to gain some seats in midterm elections.
Republicans have to gain at least 45 seats in the House and 6 in Senate to meet expectations. Any less and it's a moral victory for the Democrats, If the Republicans win BIG, say 65 House seats and 9 in the Senate ( keeping it 50-50 unless they can convince somebody to switch parties) it is a big loss for the Democrats.
Manchin D WVa called winner.
Coons over O'Donnell
Blount over Carnahan.
Grayson getting killed
the Vermont guy is Dubee haha
it's a no drainer dude..... that he wins that state. :rocker:
It's looking more and more like a 55ish, give or take gain in the house, and a 7ish gain in the senate. We won't really know which way the "ish" goes until some of the west coast results start to come in.
it looks like the Dem's have more seats than expected? Harry will be thrilled.
still a way to go right?
I've been following the local questions results, and they went from all 3 being a "no" early, to each moving to a "yes" right now. To me that says we could be in for a long night, as the votes, and where they come from as they're being counted, provide a volatile ebb and flow.
What do you guess the ratio to be?
In NH it's going like this:
Lynch (D) - 50% (Lynch has already been declared winner.)
Stehpens (R) - 48%
Ayotte (R) - 63%
Hodes (D) - 34%
US House 1st District
Guinta (R) - 56%
Shea-Porter (D) - 40%
US House 2nd District
Bass (R) - 52%
Kuster (D) - 44%
I have only included the results for Coke and Pepsi (as RW say). Lynch actually came close to being ousted, which is quite the swing for NH. Interesting election to say the least...
Love that the local news is showing results of 1% of precincts reporting... That's meaningful...
Rand Paul is the biggest disappointment of the evening. I find it absolutely disgusting that a man who believes a women who becomes pregnant from rape should be forced to bear the child and a business should be allowed to discriminate based on race. Clearly, Satanism is the religion of the Kentucky. The scary thing about Rand Paul is he's quite intelligent, so that makes him worse than Sharron Angle (assuming she wins).
It looks like I might have to add a little Lipton Tea to the mix.
My favorite was one where they had 2% reporting, and something like 5,000 votes, and declared a winner. I understand how they conclude that, but it still irks me. Why not wait till like say 10% comes in?
I'm sure some others find you, and many of the politicians elected tonight, who feel it's ok to kill a baby as being absolutely disgusting too. Nothing says love like ripping a baby to shreds, and tossing it into a alley dumpster.
Anyone watching MSNBC? Chris Matthews looks, and sounds like a moderate on this panel.
Barbara Boxer just had a huge swing -- 5 pts down to 5 points up in mere minutes!
Making even more unhappy that I forgot to record the Celts game... Guess it's time to do some work
Crap, the Celtics played tonight. Dang, I totally forgot about them.
