As promised yesterday, here are some predictions for the US Midterms.

Senate

In the senate the Republicans need to win 10 seats to gain control of senate. I think they will pick up 12 seats including: Nevada, Florida and Illinois. I think Fiorina will just lose out to Boxer in California, but I am hoping to be wrong on that one!

House

In the House I think the Republicans will end up with between 225 and 235 seats. This could be conservative, but the house is a lot harder to predict.

Govenor

In the various races for the Statehouses, California returning to Democratic control is a foregone conclusion. I think Illinois and Ohio will go Republican. I think Lincoln Chafe (ind) will win in Rhode Island.

Have you any predictions to share?

  1. Where are you getting 12? They’ll get 11 if everything goes their way: AR, IL, NV, ND, IN, CO, PA, WI, WA, WV and CA. They already have Florida. And I’d say eight, with Washington, California and West Virginia staying blue. Though in the last of those, Manchin could well be a procedural Democrat only.
