I love this quote from Nate Silver, who has updated his forecast for the U.S. Senate elections.
Whereas, as of our last update, or simulations were projecting an average of 54.0 Democratic and 46.0 Republican seats, we now show 55.2 Democrats, 44.2 Republicans, and 0.6 Charlie Crists.
Haha. I recommend the analysis. Silver concludes that the primaries, both Republican and Democratic, have helped Dems either through selection of stronger Democratic candidates or weaker GOP ones.
Rand Paul in Kentucky for the GOP comes to mind. Too wacky to be true. The Dems helped them themselves by kicking Arlen Specter out the Pennsylvania race. In an anti-career politician climate, he's about the worst candidate possible. And then in Nevada the GOP nominated a lunatic, which doesn't work as well in moderate states as it does in the Deep South.
