Welcome to the pre-scrum ONT. Gird your loins.

Election Night Meetups: Chicago - Meet your fellow morons tomorrow night at the Tilted Kilt (17 N. Wabash, Chicago, IL) from 5pm til ??. Let me know if other cities have moron plans.

Rasmussen's Final State of Play

As of polling through last weekend Rasmussen has Republicans +12 in generic polling. And if you look at the trend line, there's a good chance it'll go higher by Tuesday night.


And here's what they have for other races:

California is 49%-46 Boxer over Fiorina (R).

Colorado is 48%-44% Buck (R) over Bennet.

Illinois is 46%-42% Kirk (R) over Giannoulias.

Nevada is 49%-45% Angle (R) over Reid.

Pennsylvania is 50%-46% Toomey (R) over Sestak.

Washington is 48%-47% Rossi (R) over Murray.

West Virginia is 50%-46% Manchin over Raese (R).

As Don Surber points out the Republicans need 10 Senate pickups to take control and currently they lead in 9 of the contested races.

And in more positive news...
