Ugh...Could The Democrats Get Filibuster Proof Majority?

Could just be the snap shot taken at the height of the anger over the bailout but still, not good. Not good at all.

GOP Senate candidates are getting pounded by the same waves of public discontent over the economy and Bush that could sink McCain, and it shows in polls from coast to coast.

Republicans fully expect to lose Virginia and New Mexico. They think there is a pretty strong chance that they also lose Colorado, Alaska, New Hampshire, Oregon and North Carolina.

This means everyone should keep their eyes on Minnesota, Kentucky, Mississippi and Georgia over the final month of this campaign to see if a wave is coming.

Several Republican strategists close to the White House said there is increasing fear among party leaders about a bloodbath. But they added that they hope to keep losses to as few as five or six seats, rather than the nine that Democrats would need to gain to reach the magic number of 60 seats.

Here's hoping that Ted Stevens beats the rap. Also, Lieberman will get kicked out of the Democratic caucus so that's once seat we may 'pick up'.

If nothing else, they really need to get Palin out to some of these races where she can help.

Here's Real Clear Politics Senate page. Interestingly, there was a lot made of a poll in Star-Trib poll in Minnesota showing Al Franken up 9, but there's also a Survey USA poll showing Norm Coleman up 10.

Well, have a happy Saturday night! Time to start drinking.
