  • Predict the US midterm results.

    So the elections are tomorrow and now if the time for Apolyton's Master Prognosticators to predict how many Dems and Republicans there will be in the House, How many Dems and Republicans will be in the Senate. Tie breaker: What will the breakdown of dems and Republicand be in governor's mansions? Independents will be counted as which ever side they caucus with. What are your guesses, people?

    I put 35 on Heidi, 30 on Bill, 10 on Beto and 10 on Sinema.

    I expect the house to go 240/195, the senate to go 50/50 and the governors to go 24/26.

        sounds about right

      BTW, I expect that Heidi and Beto will lose.

      Also a comment. If I was actually voting in North Dakota or Florida, the constant emails after I gave and the pessimism in them would put me off voting.

          To be clear, I think that finally Latinos and the Young will vote, but that it won't be enough for the senate.

          Clearness:
          House: 240D/195R
          Senate: 50R/50D
          Governors: 25R/25D (I don't know governors races as well, but I just changed it to 25/25 from 24/26).

            D=take the house, closer than current polls.

            R=keep the senate, barely.

            This is what most of our companies models show. But not all of them. sigh.

            I would love to see Ted lose, but I don't see how it can happen.

              Can you clarify? If it is a systematic I would expect 220/215 (D) and 53/47 (R). The first is closer than current polls, the later is not barely keeping the senate though.

                it's a prediction so it's general on purpose But 220 sounds about right. I'm thinking 50-52

                  How the **** anyone can vote on the republican party in its current form is beyond me.

                      I'm reliably informed by Ben Kenobi that anyone who did not predict Trump's win in 2016 is disqualified from all future prognostication.

                        I called Trump's win in 2016... Just the impression I got when Hillary was trash talking coal

                      Unfortunately I didn't have an hour to wait in line last week or today... past experience says that the lines tomorrow will be minimal.

                        I vote on election day. Tried early voting twice and it was much more of a hassle - further from home with longer lines.

                          Me too, If i take the slightly early train home, there is never anybody in line and the poll is only a few blocks from my house. I see no reason to have to jump through any hoops.
