The Senate! The House! Blue? Red? What's happening?
We get the latest assessment from key observers. The critical Tennessee Senate race has tightened, and Marsha "Trump-Before-Trump" Blackburn's scorched earth campaign has gotten a Trump bump. TN moderate Republican heavyweight Tom Ingram lays out a coherent picture and predicts a narrow Bredesen win.
UVa's Larry Sabato surveys the mid-term landscape and veteran Washington Post political reporter Dan Balz revisits his extensive WP essay on the lack of a compelling Democratic message.
Predictions: the group continues to envision a Democratic takeover of the House, but struggling to win back the Senate. Your host demurs: both the House and the Senate will flip, and Trump's irresponsible, corrupt Administration will face withering investigations in the coming Congress. No impeachment, but also no more Trump SCOTUS nominations.
