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.

THE END...

of our fiscal year is Thursday, June 30, and we have a much larger fundraising gap than we can easily manage with only days left to go.

Right now is no time to come up short: If you value the hard-hitting, democracy-protecting, justice-advancing journalism you get from Mother Jones, please help us keep charging as hard as we possibly can with a much-needed and much-appreciated donation today.
