Lot's of action in the election threads tonight so I thought I'd offer up another forum for people to blather on about. Something interesting is happening on the Senate battlefront. The GOP seems to have hit a wall in their Senate hopes. Even though the CNN and other cable outlets have called the House for the GOP, which seems to me to be premature, especially given the volitility of this cycle.
But the Senate is part of the so called expected Republican tsunami.
And the wave is falling short.
Could the numbers we have been subjected to have been wrong?
We don't know yet. But a lot of races that remain to be determine seem to showing a pattern. Kirk is down. Big time. Buck trails. Big time. Toomey/Sestak tied. We wait to see how Nevada turns out... but if the pattern holds, Reid is safe and Angle is a footnote. California was never a race, even though some tried to create the illusion. Same with Washington. In fact, the desperation to preserve the narrative is most exemplified in the Washington race in that polls were released showing the race tightening....after most of the ballots had been cast by mail in. And not counted. Interesting stretch.
I don't think a whole lot of these races were as close as some made them out to be. The GOP is stuck at needing at 7 more for a takeover. Been that way for a while. I don't think that will change --- except perhaps in the other direction when some Alaska results come in.
My guess is that none of the darlings of the Tea Party get anywhere, or anything but the hollow feeling of defeat. The Democratic gotv will, in fact, prevail over the media smoke and mirrors in Col, Ill, California, Nevada and Washington. Alaska will be wild ride.
Will Rand Paul be a Tea Party Caucus of one?
What's your opinion?
