    It will be the first election in a long time where social issues have worked in their favor....

    And this year was supposed to be a lock for the GOP.

    It's an interesting paradigm shift.

    IF the Dims hold the Senate, it will be the result solely of the value of incumbency and an electorate that is constantly and intentionally fed disinformation by the left wing media.

    It will also put a drag on the reforms that now have to be put into effect.

    If they hold the Senate and Romney wins, then Romney should adopt obama's policy of just ignoring Congress and doing whatever he thinks needs to be done.

    The Dems will win the Senate and the presidency.

    And the Republican Party will either disappear or move back to the center.

    Unfortunately one not likely to affect real change in the GOP, both with regard to leadership and the rank and file – opposition to privacy rights and equal protection rights for same-sex couples, for example, will continue to be a litmus test for republican politicians.

    ‘Legitimate rape’ and pregnancy resulting from rape being ‘god’s will’ will continue to be themes adhered to by many on the right.

    No, they'll still have the House and the Speakership that goes with it. IOW, they'll still be very relevant.

    Of course, the Prez won't have to worry about getting re-elected again, so THAT could change a few things.

    The GOP Senate candidates in a few races have shot themselves in the ass with some very stupid statements. I suspect the end result will be close, so it could be that the repubs will lose a couple of seats and the majority with them due to foot in mouth disease.

    Democraps running the Senate means no passed budgets, like usual.

    They are the idiots with the checkbook but not paying attention to the bank statements....
