A Gaze Into the Crystal Ball

MyDD : : Direct Democracy for People-Powered Politics -- a mouthful -- has taken a fairly sophisticated stab at forecasting the outcome of the 2006 U.S. House and Senate races. They think the Democrats will pick up the House (Markos Moulitsas of Daily Kos disagrees ) but that the Republicans will narrowly retain the Senate. Based on the latest polls they're confident that Sherrod Brown will unseat Mike DeWine -- despite the fact that DeWine is spending more lavishly on his campaign -- and they see the 15th Congressional District leaning Republican, principally because Deborah Pryce is the third-ranking House Republican. The 12th District doesn't figure into their calculations, which presumably means they regard it as safely Republican. Rats.
