    No, not the Presidential race where Obama seems to be pulling away. The all important Senate race where Real Clear Politics has it 47 Democrats to 45 Republicans with 8 races a toss up

    RealClearPolitics - 2012 Election Maps - Battle for the Senate

    Dems need to take 3 of 8 while Republicans need 6 of 8 toss up elections

    Key Senate races:

    Mass Brown (R) vs Warren (D) Warren +0.1
    Fl Mack (R) vs Nelson (D) Mack +0.2
    VA Allen (R) vs Kaine (D) Kaine +0.5
    WI Thompson (R) vs Baldwin (D) Baldwin +0.5

    These races are too close to call and will probably decide who wins the Senate

    I usually use this guy. He's a Democrat through and through, but he posts all the numbers and seems to bair. he even removes rassmussen on a seperate page for those who dont agree with that pollster.

    I wouldn't say Obama is pulling away just yet Real Clear Politics has Obama +3.4 Rasmussen has Romney +4 and Gallup has Obama +1 Real Clear and Rasmussen polls ran through August 8th Gallup's through August 7th my guess would be Gallup is probably closer to the truth.

    I can't imagine how it will be if Republicans take control of the Senate and Obama wins another term. The latter is unlikely according to the latest Rasmussen polls.

    .

    On November 7, neither party will have "taken over". It's going to take cooperation, consensus and intellectual honesty to deal with the existential issues we face.

    We'll either have adults working together or a continuation of the childish finger-pointing that we have now. I wonder which one it will be.

    Actually, no, I don't wonder.

    the Democrats have a chance but recent history is not on their side (*except 2010) - a solid victory for Obama would certainly help, the real No.s begin after Labour Day.
