KEYWORDS: governors; house; senate
These webpages will have links to the individual races, so if one is interested in a race and is curious about the candidates (and other information), one has a source of information.

The Governorships are important because of re-districting on account of the 2010 census (among other reasons).

Some bad weather on election day will help. The low turnout scenario heavily favors the GOP.

I posted this as a one stop shopping for the election. You can look up individual races via Real Clear Politics. And, one can be assured that they will keep it up to date.

If the Senate and House delegates are split in an electoral Vote dispute, the Govenor decides.

Watch.

Republicans will snatch defeat from the jaws of victory.

Conservatives peaked too soon.

All this talk of Republican “landslide” sounds like McCain/Palin, 2008.

I’ll be happy if they eke out a majority in the House.

I’ve made a tentaive decision. I just hope it’s not like 1998, where high hopes faded.

I just voted this morning; first day possible in Illinois - all Republican except for one state level education position. Prefer not being accused of being a ‘party line’ voter by Lefty idiots.

The peak comes in three weeks. We are currently at the base of the wave. Barney Frank and John Dingell could fall. How’s Steny Hoyer doing?

We have hardly peaked too soon.

GOP still has multiple, high-impact cards to play:

1. Congress left town and the RATS have a tax increase for all Americans in the pipeline - they did nothing to stop it. Not 1 in 20 Americans yet understands this.

2. Unemployment

3. Medicare Advantage being dessimated by BOcare - millions of seniors not yet aware.

4. No social security COLA increase next year because the RATS wasted all the bread on the stimulus.

All of this, and more.

I would agree. But I think they are throwing in a number of different polls.

It seems to be a source of information.

Turn on your filters and hold your nose as you need to...

Do you know of another site?

These 5 races are real close and we need to win them all to get to 51: Washington, West Virginia, Nevada, Colorado and
Illinois. It’s a tall order; our candidates aren’t very popular.

I’m assuming we lose California, Connecticut & Delaware.

Benefits enrollment started this week for me at work. I wonder how choice changes in 2011 plans will effect voters’ mindsets?

The Governorships have tightened since yesterday.

Today it is:

26 GOP; 9 Toss ups; 15 Democrat

That means there was a change of two from yesterday into the toss up column.

It is my opinion that toss ups would favor the GOP given the activity of TEA Party and TEA Party Express, as well as just general voter dissatisfaction...

October 14, 2010 update:

Projected Governorships:

GOP 26; Toss Ups 10; Democrat 14

That is a change of a projected Democrat to now a Toss Up from yesterday...

Projected House of Representatives:

GOP 211; Toss Ups 40; Democrats 184 That is a change of a projected Democratic seat changing to Toss Ups.

I think the Toss Ups favor the Republicans at this point -- especially if there is bad weather on November 2.

The Senate is unchanged...

I wonder if what will happen after the Nevada debate tonight.

Will Harry Reid suffer from a severe case of foot-in-mouth disease during the debate tonight? I certainly hope so...

The GOP gained a seat (by the predictions at RCP) today in CO-3 (Colorado 3rd district has been changed from toss up to a leans GOP seat.

The GOP is inching towards majority control (212 seats projected GOP now) with only 218 needed for majority.

That means the GOP needs only a handful of the toss up seats to gain the majority, and winning over half the toss ups will give them a a strong majority...

Looks like a GOP tsunami this year in the House with a GOP tsunami in the Senate in 2012 (with the possibility of a Sarah Palin presidency!)

Just my opinion though...
