I voted what I think is going to happen: that the GOP wins both the House and the Senate.

If the last few years have taught me nothing else it is that political polls, like facts, have a liberal bias.

In other words, things are worse than they even look right now.

I hope I am wrong. I am the sort of Democrat who nags people for signatures on petitions to get the right sort of Democrats on the ballot. I'm actually an elected Democrat on the County Committee.

So prove me wrong, America, and make me a happy man.

Please remember, this is not a "wish list", and not your letter to Santa Claus, it is supposted to be your prediction, i.e. what you think is actually going to happen..

I predict I won't make a prediction (oops)  and thus keep my record at either 0% or 100% right or wrong. When do I get my prize?

When I return to Canada.

The Dems have disappointed and pissed off just about every constituency..

The Republicans will take both the House and Senate.

My five & dime crystal ball tells me Republicans take the House and Democrats retain control of the Senate.  Republicans should sweep Federal, state, and local elections but one should never underestimate the inherent ability of Republicans to screw themselves. 

Republicans will take the House in spite of themselves.  But the Senate is too close to call.

I agree.  But, if the candidates are that unacceptable, isn't it better to know it before the election?

Does either party really want to be in charge and therefore responsible for fixing the economy?  Isn't it safer to be in the minority and blame the other side until the next presidential election?

The problem is that primaries have become a competition between the weakest candidates.  People that want Democrats to win vote in the Republican primary for the weakest candidate.  People that want Republicans to win vote in the Democrat primary for the weakest candidate.  And good candidates running as independents don't have a chance.

Party primaries have screwed up our elections and, as a consequence, have screwed up our government.  Election reforms that do not address the stranglehold the two parties have on the election process won't accomplish much.

Does either party really want to be in charge and therefore responsible for fixing the economy?  Isn't it safer to be in the minority and blame the other side until the next presidential election?

Who holds Congress responsible or accountable for anything?  Congress doesn't do anything because Congress doesn't have to.  That's why government is being run by executive orders and court decrees.  Congress has delegated its responsibilities to the bureaucracy.  So, the only thing Congress does is run for the next election.

Republicans had better not screw themselves this time. 

The thought of Democrats running Washington for another two years; maybe longer depending on the candidates for president; is not something this country can withstand.

The GOP is hobbling itself with unelectable Senate candidates like Hershal Walker, Doctor Oz and J D Vance. The House will be closer.

Nobody should be afraid of this poll.

It's confidential - the person who votes is not identified by the system.

It's going to be a great red tide.

I can't wait to see the results.

I think it's too soon to make any predictions because of all the variables involved, but I like how a perfect storm is in the process of forming for the party of christo-fascists. backlash against a thumper SCOTUS hell bent on creating a theocracy, the insurrection investigation exposing the unamerican activities of the GOP autocrat wing, the first skirmishes of the GOP civil war against the maga crazies happening, and the greatest unknown of the millennial vote turning out.

personally, I'm hoping for whatever gets us to the fascist bloodletting the quickest. as an american history buff, I really regret being born in a time period when I wasn't able to be extremely proactive in eradicating members of the aristocracy, white supremacists, fascists, and especially theocrats. looks like I may get my chance after 2024.
