The safe answer is, somebody is going to win and somebody is going to lose.  For the last year now, the right-wing media has been telling us that this year will bring big wins for Republicans.  It is as if they think that they can spin their way into a win.  The fact that the Republican Party has be engaged in caging Democratic voters would tell us that they don't believe their own spin and well that they shouldn't.  Zogby's September 20th poll showed Democrats taking the lead by 1 point, not a great lead, but when you look at the real data you will see that the election is really close.

In the Congressional race in 2010, for which party's candidate do you intend to vote - Democrat of Republican?

Totals may not add up to 100% due to rounding.
Most likely there will be both Republican and Democratic seats lost and gained, but to say absolutely that one side will have big wins over the other, just isn't in the numbers.  I predict that the Democratic Party will hold on to it's control of Congress with either a couple more or less seats.  I know I'm playing it safe on this, but I just feel to predict great victories for either side, is simply wishful thinking.

Very good Frank, I think it's funny how Republicans will put down polls until one favors them.  I like how Zogby shows the closeness of this election, who knows how it will all turn out?  We might actually pick up seats on the Democratic side.
