ELECTION POOL….Do Republicans really think they might lose 34 seats in the House? Wow.

And as long as we’re on the subject, it’s time for predictions. There are three categories this year:

  • Winner and total electoral votes for president.

  • Composition of the House. Current composition is 235-199-1.

  • Composition of the Senate. Current composition is 49-49-2.

I suck at this, but I’ll predict (a) Obama with 310 electoral votes, (b) 250-185, and (c) 55-43-2. Leave your predictions in comments. Winner gets a free subscription to Mother Jones.
