Final Election Projections Are Out

November 2nd, 2010

Election day is like Christmas morning for me.

And even though I’m getting coal in my stocking this year, I’m still excited. We’ll see how I feel after the results are in.

Here are final election predictions from Nate Silver and Larry Sabato.

Interestingly, they both have the exact same numbers: 8 Senate Seats for the GOP and 55 House seats.

Both show the Republicans coming up slightly short in the Senate. In order to pull the upset, they need to take West Virginia and then either Washington or California, while realizing victory in close elections in the states of Colorado, Nevada, Illinois and Pennsylvania.

In the House, the prediction is for 55 seats, but this is notoriously hard to predict. They both have 47 losses as a likely floor (which would still be a loss of the House) and of course there are the whisper numbers of over 70 seats.

Bring on the Teabaggers.
