Despite the political earthquake of Christine O'Donnell upset and the subsequent strengthening of the Democrat position in Delaware, the GOP makes significant gains in WV and WI. Overall, it's a wash and we're right back to where we were a few weeks ago. There are some minor movements with WA and CA's latest polling showing movement to Dems and a surprise in Kentucky (polling has tightened).
However, the GOP has put new seats into play with DioGuardi's strengthening position in New York. Connecticut is also now a toss-up race.
Current Projections (October 1, 2010):
|No Race: 23||Safe: 14||Likely: 7||Lean: 4|
|No Race: 40||Safe: 5||Likely: 1||Lean: 2|
