    The utterly execrable Saxby Chambliss will win, unfortunately.

    Dole is gone.

    McConnell will win.

    Cormyn will win easily.

    The convicted felon Ted Stevens will lose easily.

    I think that if Chambliss can force it to a run off in Georgia he will win. The Black Turnout will not be as large, no matter how much Obama campaigns for Martin and this will have a dampening effect IMO.

    Update: Nate Silver on the final Senate polls:

    A clear favorite has been established in all but one of the 34 senate races on the ballot today. Although the Democrats remain in as strong a position in the aggregate as they have been all year, their odds of emerging with a 60-seat caucus now appear fairly long — no better than about 15 percent.

    The race where there’s no favourite is Minnesota.

    There’s a rule in Georgia which means that if no candidates gets over 50% they hold a runoff, so I would bet on Chambliss winning the race but having to go to a runoff, which should be interesting.
