Okay, is anyone watching FiveThirtyEight's projections? I'm honestly baffled. Republicans keeping the house started out as a 1 in 7 chance, forty minutes ago it was 1 in 15, but now it's 3 in 5. If your model is going to be so volatile, what's even the point?

Im waiting for the NYT scale to go live. They were right when they predicted Trump would win in 2016.

Shocked democrats are still leading in Texas. With almost half the vote in, its looking bad for Cruz.

I'd be shocked if Beto wins. A lot of the vote in conservative areas are not in yet anyway.

70% in Texas and he's still up by 2 points. That is very bad news. Texas is always a democrat lead early, but I've never seen it this close late in the night. Doesn't look like the GOP will lose the senate, and the house won't be a total disaster, but its still shocking nonetheless.



Made a bet with LipeJJ and HylianYoshi that the XB1 will reach 30 million before Wii U reaches 15 million. Loser has to get avatar picked by winner for 6 months (or if I lose, either 6 months avatar control for both Lipe and Hylian, or my patrick avatar comes back forever).

Yeah Beto has a path to victory but ehre are some GOP districts that have less than 20% reporting. Texas will be close for sure.



Beto up by 5k votes.



NYT has the Dems taking the house at 95%.



Recreational Marijuana is winning in Michigan 60 to 40. Hopefully Illinois and Wisconsin and other surrounding states pay attention to this when Michigan is suddenly flushed with tax money.

I think it looks like the Dems will probably eek into a small majority for the House, Senate probably stays GOP. Marginal win for the Dems but far from a "Blue Wave" they've been yelling about..

What I don't get is why exactly is Fox News calling the House for the Dems already? Results are still up in the air, and the whole West Coast and most of Great Plains have yet to report in.. And remember, Dems have more seats they have to gain than Repubs. They're only flipped up a few seats so far as far as I'm aware, right?

House is looking good for dems right now. Wish i could say the same for the senate.



     

Check out my lastest games review: Fast RMX and  Snipperclips: Cut it out Together

MSNBC just called the house to Dem control and Senate to Republican control.



Weird how the Senate and House are going in different direction. I guess it's where the seats are but you'd expect to see the same general trend,



Gop has a chance to keep the house still.
