My Predictions for 2010

At long last, I have finished making predictions, this time mixing my “gut feeling” predictions from earlier with the formula prediction methods I had used since 2006. I found the dearth of House polls very annoying, so many of my House predictions could be way off. We shall see in 12 or so hours.

  1. i wanted to write “you are extremely optimistic”, but your House part isn’t so far from mine))). So, i really want this to happen by this evening, but still – remain slightly more pessimistic))))

  2. Picks are virtually identical to mine, in fact your governor calls are identical, and the house one is just a few seats interchanged on both sides, you’ve got 42 and I have 43.  The only two seats I see here that I have strong disagreements with are OH-18 and NM-1, I had Space and Heinrich both winning by 4-5%.  

    The Senate though, wow, Robin Carnahan and Scott McAdams!  I would absolutely love to see that happen, Carnahan in particular as she’s by far the superior candidate in that race and the wave is killing her.  Our numbers are similar there too, but you’ve got us losing PA and CO, while winning MO, NV, and AK, so we differ on those 5 races.  

    Only 8 more hours till we find out what’s what.  I can say though that if Carnahan beats Blunt, that’ll be a champ-worthy call.
