    The Dems are in a precarious position this election cycle when it comes to the Senate. According to the election models, there is a 3 in 4 chance that the Republicans will take control of the Senate. Arkansas, Colorado, Louisiana, Montana, South Dakota and West Virginia are the really close senate races that will decide which party has the majority. Here is how those states are currently polling.

    Arkansas:
    Mark Pryor (D) 41%
    Tom Cotton (R) 49%

    Colorado:
    Mark Udall (D) 45%
    Cory Gardner (R) 48%

    Louisiana:
    Mary Landrieu (D) 43%
    Bill Cassidy (R) 35%

    Montana:
    Amanda Curtis (D) 39%
    Steve Daines (R) 53%

    South Dakota:
    Rick Weiland (D) 31%
    Mike Rounds (R) 45%

    West Virginia:
    Natalie Tennant (D) 34%
    Shelley Moore Capito (R) 56%

    Lots of issues are on the line. Net neutrality, abortion, gay marriage, healthcare, education and marijuana to name a few.

    I have my eye on Colorado of these races. Looking like a coin flip right now. Also keeping my fingers crossed that Arkansas shows up more than polling suggests and Pryor pulls it out.

    I think Udall can pull this one out. He has stayed within the margin of error on most polls and I think it's a genuine toss up. I just hope people really think twice before voting for someone as crazy as Gardner.

    Where did you get this poll? Everything I've been watching with her is pointing to her having a bad night tonight.

    I'm also really interested to see what happens in Kansas. They haven't elected a non-Republican for Senate sine the Great Depression. That would be huge.

    Oh...they do their polls in a rather unique way. They are polling both Republicans on the ballot separately and don't really explain that it is headed for a runoff if no one get's 50 percent plus one. That will be held on December 6th if that's the case.
