One Last Look At The Polls

One Last Look At The Polls

As it stands, my projections for tomorrow are mixed. I will go on the record and predict the Democrats will loose 43 seats and the House majority.

If the conservatives are to control the House and Senate, it will be by a landslide of tiny margins rather than a landslide of votes.
