I like the bipartisanship that's going on in here.  Feels good. :combofan:
Fifteen minutes later, when the Kansas locker room opened its doors to the media, the Jayhawks were still crying. Literally, bawling. All of them. I've never seen anything like it, and I've seen devastated college locker rooms -- after losses in the Final Four, the national championship game -- ever

Post your predictions pwood

I think at least +1 in the Senate.  I'm not quite sure yet on the House but I'll do some p-wood surveying and get back with you.

Recent polling (thanks, Ford/Feinstein!) shows the pubs picking up senate seats and pulling even in the house.

well that's not true.
we understand it better now that the american century is over and some of us sound more and more like serbs.

I'd be shocked if Dems didn't win the house.  I'd also be pretty surprised if Dems won the senate.

current odds are about 20:80 in both.  i'm not sure you should be surprised at a 1 in 5 event occurring.  if they were independent events, which they obviously aren't, there'd be almost a 50% chance that at least one would go the other way.

If the election were held today, I am 100% certain: GOP +3 in Senate (Pubs hold AZ, gain ND, and gain 2 out of MO, IN, and FL), and Dems +19 in House.

Biggest and perhaps only question is how accurately are pollsters predicting turnout. No question that Dem base is highly energized, but Dems are also generally quite pathetic in midterm elections. So how much does one offset the other? And how much has recent increase in GOP motivation (thanks Shumer/Feinstein!) been factored in? I have a creeping suspicion that most pollsters are slightly over-estimating Dem turnout.

I've said it before and I'll say it again, K-State fans could have beheaded the entire KU team at midcourt, and K-State fans would be celebrating it this morning.  They are the ISIS of Big 12 fanbases.

The news networks are treating this like it's a presidential election.   May have to fire up a new server to store the POTENTIAL melting down about Trump happenings.

I mean, you didn't think the server upgrades from a week or two back were about the upcoming Farmageddon, did you?

Dax, you're the one irate that the news is reporting that people in general are more interested in the midterms than normal (a completely true statement).

Media  :curse:

d +0 senate
d +35 house

nunes wins by 4, cruz by 3.

r +1 senate
d +38 house

nunes plus 5, cruz plus 6.

Does LibBot Nation think that Claire McCaskill's "I'm not a crazy Democrat"  platform will propel her over the finish line?
