Okay, Projectors. The polls have closed in some states and results are starting to trickle in. I've already put out my predictions on how tonight will end. Do you agree? Disagree?
Feel free to keep leaving results in the comments section too. I'm the only one doing "Results Watch 2010" so I'm happy for the help in keeping readers updated. I'll keep updating this post with the results as they come in until I fall asleep. *grins*
Now, let's just hope that my predictions are horribly wrong, all the polling was off-base, and the media were manufacturing a problem that's just not there. Let's keep our fingers crossed that Dems retain the majority. Oh, and let's all wish for a bajillion dollars while we're at it; that'd be nice too. And we'd have about the same chances!
My guess is that Ellsworth vs Coats for Senate from Indiana is the first race called of the night. Ellsworth will lose. I wonder why... Update: 15 minutes after I posted this, MSNBC has called the race for Coats. That didn't take long. God, I wish they'd listened to me, but since when has the Indiana state party listened to progressives instead of wallowing in the same morass of being the lesser-class conservative party? As these dominoes fall tonight, keep in mind that Senator Evan Bayh's classless resignation and handpicked selection of Ellsworth will have cost Dems a seat in the Senate, Ellsworth's old seat in the House, and a seat in the state house too. He has effectively done more to give Indiana to the Republicans than any Republican.
