Senate internals

Here’s what I’m hearing. The numbers for last night looked a little better than the night before. (Possible Kerry effect?) In TN and MO the GOP internals have those races basically tied, with maybe the Republican slightly ahead. I have no explanation for why the public polls have such a different result on the TN race, with Corker way ahead. Allen is about two points ahead. Chafee is closing, getting within about 5, with Whitehouse continuing to see erosion in his fav/unfav. Kyl still up 6 in AZ, down from where he was before, but still a nice lead. Nothing good for the GOP is happening in OH or PA, but that’s not news. And, sorry, I forgot to ask about MD.
