Democratic Prospects Improving For Control of Senate

Conventional wisdom has been that the Democrats will win control of the House but are not likely to win enough seats to control the Senate. The New York Times finds more possibilities for the Democrats to win in Senate races. They report on Democratic prospects for victory in Virginia, Tennessee, Missouri, Montana, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Rhode Island. It is far too early to predict what will happen in these states, but if the Republicans fail in their strategy of going negative to distract voters from their dismal record, there is the possibility for national trends to lead to Democratic control of both houses of Congress.
