    Generally, across the board, they're off by a few % from 538's projections. Which points to net losses in the Senate, and control of the House a total toss-up.

  • rcs1000rcs1000 Posts: 23,684
    Indiana and Arizona both looking very good for the Republicans. That means the only likely pickup for the Dems is Nevada. The best the can be looking at - realistically - now is -1. And it's more likely to be -2 or even -3.

    Agree, I think the markets mostly just follow 538 on nights like this. No idea what the base info is, but lots of tossups narrowly leaning red on live results.

    This is his victory. If there’s no recession, he’ll be re-elected.

    Some slight worries from 538:
    "You may have noticed that our real-time forecast has moved toward Republicans in the House. It’s being too aggressive, in my opinion. The model sees that a bunch of “likely Republican” districts (particularly in Florida) are now 100 percent likely to go red. But there hasn’t been the chance for Democrats to clinch many equivalent likely Democratic districts."

    From Nathaniel Rakich at 538:

    "You may have noticed that our real-time forecast has moved toward Republicans in the House. It’s being too aggressive, in my opinion. The model sees that a bunch of “likely Republican” districts (particularly in Florida) are now 100 percent likely to go red. But there hasn’t been the chance for Democrats to clinch many equivalent likely Democratic districts."

    From what I remember the 538 election night live forecast has always had problems like this. It's obviously not looking great for the Dems right now but I wouldn't take their numbers *too* seriously yet.

    All the swinging and overreacting makes me wish I was betting, though...
  • rottenboroughrottenborough Posts: 17,497
    There is money to be made on BF. It is all over the shop.

    Just made a few quid in seconds on House majority. Bet on Dems, laid off within a minute.

    Small sums, but beer money.

    It should be reminded that 538 now makes most of its income from sports and Nate silver does virtually no work on political modelling these days.

    As I have consistently said midterms are irrelevant in presidential election terms, Clinton lost the House and Senate and was re elected, Obama lost the House and was re elected, Carter held the House and Senate and lost re election, George W Bush gained House and Senate seats in 2002 and was re elected by the narrowest margin since Truman

    538 predicts 24 Democrat gains in the House. They need 23 for a majority. That's how close it is. I'd be amazed if we get a final result tonight.
