Nate's blog: 538

New projection: 52.1 D, 47.9R, and 0.1 Charlie Crist's or Lisa Murkowski's.

Last week the GOP had a 24% chance of takeover.

The good news:
NV-Sen: Two of three polls this week show Reid with a lead. Nate's model still gives Angle a slight advantage, though.
WV-Sen: Manchin gaining on Raese, and non-Ras polls done for the first time (CNN) which showed a tie.
WA-Sen: Polling all over the place, but two polls show Murray with a solid lead so she's up to 78% from 71%.
IL-Sen: A nail biter, but Giannoulias is now given a 53% chance of victory.

The bad news: WI-Sen. Non partisan polls show Ron Johnson with a 8 point lead, and that translates into a 94% chance of victory.

The tight races (single-digit margins per Nate) with appropriate ActBlue links:
PA: Toomey + 7 over Sestak
WI: Johnson +7 over Feingold
CO: Buck + 2 over Bennet
NV: Angle + 1 over Reid
IL: Giannoulias+ 0.3 over Kirk
WV: Manchin+ 1 over Raese
WA: Murray+ 4 over Rossi
KY: Paul + 6 over Conway
CA: Boxer+ 5 over Fiorina
NH: Ayotte + 7 over Hodes
MO: Blunt + 9 over Carnahan

That's a total of 11 tight races. And as I diariedyesterday, the possible cell-phone effect may be on the order of 4 to 6 percent - which puts ALL of those races into toss up category.

You know what to do, Kossacks. GOTV. They will outspend us, thanks to Corporations Untied and the extremely activist Roberts court, but don't let them outwork us.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
