    GOP takes the House, splits the Senate.
    Biden resigns when he mistakenly casts the deciding vote for the GOP.

    Very close in the House, no more than 2 or 3 seats. Dems retain the Senate with 3. Teabaggers will be judged to have been a detriment to the Republicans.

    Republicans get a slight majority in the house.

    Democrats keep the Senate.

    I went for the longer shot, Republicans take the House winning 50 seats and take the Senate by one...IL, WV, and CA or WA will all break for Republicans along with AR, IN, MO, ND, NV, CO, WI, and PA.

    I just don't think 52/48 is enough to carry the incumbents in an election cycle were the enthusiasm gap is so strongly against them.

    If they get to 55/45 before election day, their odds increase significantly, but a statistical tie on election day will go to the Republicans IMO.

    i just hope its much more balanced.....we have already seen what happens when one side has control....and we are now seen it again with the other side....California is the perfect example of an out of balance electorate....

    The statists win as folks continue to reaffirm their belief that their votes count for something.
