Data journalist Nate Silver predicted the 2012 Presidential outcomes in every state. Now he says the Republican Party has a good chance to take back the Senate in 2014. Silver’s FiveThirtyEight reports:
Republicans have great opportunities in a number of states, but only in West Virginia, South Dakota, Montana and Arkansas do we rate the races as clearly leaning their way. Republicans will also have to win at least two toss-up races, perhaps in Alaska, North Carolina or Michigan, or to convert states such as New Hampshire into that category. And they’ll have to avoid taking losses of their own in Georgia and Kentucky, where the fundamentals favor them but recent polls show extremely competitive races.”
Democrats have struck back, bashing Silver’s predications. The “NewsOne Now” panel says the Dems should be taking notice, not resisting the polls.
