With a week to go, the House is a sure thing for the Democrats, but the Senate is harder to call. Polls released in the last few days have given Democrats a boost, but it still doesn’t look like Missouri plus Tennessee plus Virginia equals 2 Democratic Senators. At the moment, it actually looks like Jim Webb has the best chance of the three, but deep down inside, I’m not sure that Virginia will defeat George Allen. We’ll see.
Have a look at Intrade, which currently gives the Dems a 70% chance of taking the House and a 33% chance of taking the Senate. And still we wait for the surprise.
