    Obama’s approval rating fell to 41 percent, down from 46 percent through the first three months of the year and the lowest of his presidency in Post-ABC News polls. Just 42 percent approve of his handling of the economy, 37 percent approve of how he is handling the implementation of the Affordable Care Act and 34 percent approve of his handling of the situation involving Ukraine and Russia.

    here is what the pros think as of today as to what will happen in the Senate come November. Do with this info what you will. But the Republicans taking control of the senate is far from being a sure thing. There is no 2010 in the offering, no indication as of yet anyway.

    1 Professional Prognosticators Senate predictions as of 29 April 2014. Current senate consists of 55 Democratic held seats 45 Republican held seats.
    Charlie Cook 47 Democratic 46 Republican: Tossups (6 Democratic held seats) Alaska, Arkansas, Colorado, Louisiana, Michigan, and North Carolina. (2 Republican held seats) Georgia and Kentucky (Democrat to Republican West Virginia, Montana, South Dakota) (No Republican to Democratic seats)

    For the Republicans to take control of the senate according to Cook, they must retain Georgia and Kentucky and win 3 of the 6 Democratic held seats he lists as tossups.


    EP 51 Democratic 49 Republican: No toss ups (Democrat to Republican West Virginia, South Dakota, Montana, North Carolina) (No Republican to Democratic seats)

    EP states the Democrats retain control of the senate.


    Nate Silver 538, 49 Republican 48 Democratic: Tossups (3 Democratic held seats Alaska, Louisiana, and North Carolina. (Democrat to Republican Arkansas, Montana, South Dakota, West Virginia). (No Republican to Democratic seats.)

    Nate says the Republican’s must win 2 of the three seats he lists as tossups. Nate and Cook are basically saying the same thing.

    RCP 51 Democrat 49 Republican (Democrat to Republican, Alaska, Louisiana, Montana, South Dakota, West Virginia) (Republican to Democrat, Kentucky)

    RCP no toss up predicts the Democrats remain in control of the senate.

    Rothenberg 50 Democrat 49 Republican: Tossup (1 Democratic held seat) Louisiana (Democrat to Republican, West Virginia, South Dakota, Montana, Arkansas) (No Republican to Democrat seats)

    For Stuart Rothenberg the Democrats are a lock to retain control of the senate. Even if Louisiana goes Republican, it would result in a 50-50 tie with Vice President Biden casting the deciding votes thus enabling the Democrats to retain their control.

    Sabato 48 Democrat 49 Republican: 3 Tossups (3 Democratic Held seats) Alaska, North Carolina, Louisiana (Democratic to Republican, West Virginia, South Dakota, Montana, Arkansas) (No Republican to Democratic seats)

    It comes down for the Republicans to win 2 of the 3 tossup seats if they are to gain control of the senate per Larry Sabato.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    To me, it'll always be a civil union. "Marriage" is a word the gay agenda isn't going to highjack from me.

    Doesn't matter. Their certificate of marriage will be exactly that, a certificate of marriage.

    When you wonder why people don't focus on the economy look at yourself in the mirror and there's one of the people to blame.
    It really is hard dealing with zealots like you who are basically single issue voters. I am not stopping you from fighting for same sex marriage in your state. It is a state issue and will always be a state issue. Why do you care if the people of TX refuse to accept SSM? how does that affect you?

    You don't seem to get it, national polls don't elect Senators or House Members. one of these days you may just take a civics class. Then you will have some credibility.

    Yes, the Dems lead in major issues, but that's generic. It is a massive amount of Democratic Senatorial seats that are up for grabs, many of them in red states, which is making this election interesting. At this time, the Dems have a 52% chance of keeping the Senate. That is not a good number for them. I predict that the Republicans will gain a tie, and Angus King will switch parties he caucuses with, giving the GOP 51 seats. With Obama still in the White House, get ready for 2 years of total gridlock.

    What does it matter to you that two gays can marry? Well sorry to show you were wrong again, Cons such as yourself don't care about the economy obviously and care more about SSM. Seems you have only yourselves to blame. So when you whine and cry about why people aren't paying attention to the economy you have only yourselves to blame because YOU care more about fighting SSM than the economy.
