Projected New Senate: 50 Democrats 49 Republicans 1 tie
News from the Votemaster
Today we have something a bit unusual: a batch of Gallup polls. Gallup doesn't do much state polling, but once in a while they are commissioned to run some state polls. Here are the results:
All these polls are consistent with the recent ones from SurveyUSA, Rasmussen, and the others. They confirm that the Democrats are probably not going to lose a single seat and may pick up Republican seats in MO, RI, and TN, as well as some states Gallup didn't poll: MT, OH. and PA. If they get all six, the Democrats will control the Senate. When the dust settles on the Foley matter, the Democrats may capture the House as well. But as Harold MacMillan once said: "In politics, a week is a long time."
We also have one Rasmussen poll. In Minnesota, Amy Klobuchar (D) is way ahead of Mark Kennedy (R), 56% to 40%.
No new House polls today.
Super Guru Charlie Cook has changed his predictions on 14 House races, making all of them better for the Democrats. See Political Wire for the list.
