The Corner

Prediction Time

I’m predicting that Bush wins 296-242 in the Electoral College (I’m assuming that a faithless WV elector counterbalances the Maine elector). In the Senate, I see a 4-seat pick-up: Republicans lose IL, pick up NC, SC, GA, FL, LA, SD, and hold either the AK or CO seat. I don’t think KY is really in play. In the House, Republicans up 3. And the Republicans net one governorship. That’s my call, and I’m sticking to it.
