Hmm. Interesting since a lot of talk is whether the Dems could get to 60 seats, you are raising the possibility of them losing seats?Originally posted by: nobodyknows
I think McCain is toast, but on the other hand I think the Dems just might lose control of the Senate. If they do then Techs question will be answered for him.Originally posted by: Sheik Yerbouti
I am not cocky at all, the last time I was cocky was dumbya v kerry, and this country elected that smacktard for a second term. I will not rest easy, nor will I doubt any other Obama voter, until he takes the oath of office. I've seen too much go too wrong with our voting system over the past 2 presidential elections. 2000 pretty much destroyed all trust I had in the voting process.
Despite my warnings about being too cocky, that's something I find extremely unlikely. Even if the Dems lose every close race, the have states like Virginia where the Democrat has 28 point lead in the polls to take a Republican seat and New Mexico where the Dems have 15 point lead to take a Republican seat.
So even if the Republicans win ALL the close races they are only retaining the seats they already have. And the Dems will pick up 2. So even if Lieberman switches parties they still have a majority.
