The Democrats have already had Larry Sabato warn them that the Senate is in play. Now they have it from Charlie Cook:
For much of this year, it seemed a near mathematical impossibility that Republicans could score the 10-seat net gain needed to flip the Senate, which is split between 59 Democrats (including two independents who caucus with Democrats and largely vote with the party) and 41 Republicans. As recently as six weeks ago, I wrote in a CongressDailyAM column that a GOP win was “certainly possible” but “still fairly unlikely.” Although the “fairly unlikely” part is still valid, the possibility of a GOP takeover is growing.
It is getting worse – rapidly – for the Democrats. The frantic attempts to put a positive spin on the appalling job numbers says rather a lot about how terrified the Democrats are right now. They have even managed to get their egomaniac-in-chief to take a break from his arduous vacation and golf schedule to make a brief public 0ppearance before going back on vacation. (No, that is not a typo, it is quite intentional.)
Talk about serious.
Remember, a vote for any Democrat at any level of government in November is providing support for this administration. Send a signal, folks.
If you have had enough, say so.
