ELECTION FORECASTS: The Self Made Pundit has a long and proud history of making insightful written election forecasts since he received an A on his paper in college analyzing and predicting the outcome of the 1972 presidential race. (While I hesitate to get bogged down in such minutia, for those of you curious, the title of the paper was “Why McGovern Will Win The Election.”)

I predict that the big news of the election will be that the Democrats take both Houses of Congress. So, continuing in the proud tradition of President McGovern, here are my predictions:

House:

Dems 220
GOP 214
Ind 1

Senate:

Dems 53
GOP 46
Ind 1

Close Senate Races:

Arkansas -- Pryor 52, Hutchinson 47
Minnesota -- Mondale 50, Coleman 46
South Carolina -- Graham 53, Sanders 47
Colorado -- Strickland 50, Allard 48
Missouri -- Carnahan 49, Talent 48
South Dakota -- Johnson 51, Thune 48
Georgia -- Cleland 50, Chambliss 49
New Hampshire -- Shaheen 50, Sununu 48
Tennessee -- Alexander 53, Clement 45
Iowa -- Harkin 54, Ganske 44
New Jersey -- Lautenberg 53, Forrester 44
Texas -- Cornyn 51, Kirk 48
Louisiana -- Landrieu 50.1, Terrell (24)
North Carolina -- Dole 50, Bowles 48
