(Toledo, OH) Even though I am cynical that there is much difference between the GOP and the Democrats this electoral cycle, I still admit to an unhealthy obsession with following the outcome. With that being said, here are my 2006 predictions:
Democrats to pick up 5 seats, final tally (before any party-switching): GOP 50, Democrats 50. VP Dick Cheney will play an important role as tie-breaker on numerous votes in the next two years. George Allen survives in Virginia, despite perhaps the worst-run campaign in recent memory.
US House: Democrats to pick up 18 seats, gain control of House.
As I see it, we will be in for two years of absolutely nothing substantial being accomplished by Congress.
How do you forecast today's elections?
