    Apparently NV tallies are delayed because one voting precinct had a power failure or something, so poll closing got delayed.

    Re: 2010 Midterm Results Discussion

    I like what Fox is doing with Huckabee and Palin. To both they've asked specifically what things they think common ground COULD be found for Republicans and Democrats that could do some of the things Democrats want to do but not cause the Republicans to renegg on their principles.

    For example, Huckabee suggested that even Democrats have been lauding the middle class tax cuts from the Bush Tax cuts but are negative to the ones for the rich...meanwhile Republicans want them all. Perhaps a compromise where we extend the Middle Class cuts indefinitely while extending the ones for the "rich" for 2 years with a revote coming in 2012 when hopefully we're a bit farther out of the economic issue. This makes the tax cut on the middle class stick, something democrats and republicans have talked about, while "compromising" in regards to the tax cut on the rich by extending it but putting a limit on that extension before it sunsets again.

    Granted, not sure if that would happen or how open to said "compromise" democrats would be...but just in general, I like the fact that Fox is saying that despite all the talk going on on both sides what specifically could potentially have common ground to work with.

    Nevada is embarrassed by the candidates so it would rather hide its head in the sand.

    On the Fox News congressional map, there is absolutely nothing showing for Nevada.

    Seems very likely.

    Dems may have a very difficult time holding on in 2012, though - They own like 70% of the seats that will be up for grabs.

    As of right now CA is at 47% vs 47%. With a difference of under 100 votes. What source are you reading with Brown winning?

    Which isn't suprising. The two parties have flip flopped control the last 6 or so elections. The "winner" is just who ever is the only other choice and has nothing to do with their political stance.
