THE GOP IS LIKELY TO DO TOO WELL FOR IT TO MATTER...:

Crossroads poll: Dem Senate in peril (ALEXANDER BURNS, 8/9/10, Politico)

The survey, which gauged voter sentiment in 13 of the states with the country’s most competitive Senate races, showed Republican Senate candidates averaging a high single-digit lead over their Democratic opponents, offering the same snapshot of an angry, uneasy electorate shown in poll after poll this year. [...]

[T]he results suggest Republicans have an opening to make substantial gains this fall, even to the point of putting the Democrats’ 59-seat majority in peril. In eight seats currently held by Democrats – Arkansas, Colorado, Delaware, Illinois, Indiana, Nevada, Pennsylvania and Washington – Republican candidates average an edge of seven points over their Democratic opponents, leading 47 percent to 40 percent.

In five Republican-held seats – Florida, Kentucky, Missouri, New Hampshire and Ohio – GOP candidates hold an average lead of eight points, 45 percent to 37 percent.


...but if they were to miss gaining control of the Senate because Charlie Crist was chased out of the Party it would make for some good backbiting.
