Projected New Senate: 50 Democrats 50 Republicans
News from the Votemaster
The most interesting polls are for the House today, so let's start there. In WA-08, one-term congressman Dave Reichert's (R) 13% lead over Darcy Burner (D) has vanished. It is now a statistical tie, with Reichert ahead 50% to 48%. Given how close the House is, this race is suddenly on top of both parties lists.
Another important House race is NH-02, where Paul Hodes (D) is catching up to incumbent Charlie Bass (R). Bass now leads 46% to 36%, but this is much less than it had been.
Over in the Senate, George Allen has moved into the lead in Virgia despite his miscues of recent weeks. SurveyUSA has him ahead of challenger Jim Webb 49% to 44% at the moment. The Senate races in Nevada, Washington, and California are pretty much unchanged, with the incumbents safely ahead.
Projected New House*: 216 Democrats 219 Republicans* Where no independent polls exist, the 2004 election results have been used. See complete House polls.
