Larry Sabato of the University of Virginia Center for Politics has released his predictions for this year’s Senate races. Be aware that Sabato is very much a Democrat so his predictions tend to lean a bit to the left.
It’s hard to believe that Virginia is more Blue than New Jersey! Have voters in Virginia forgotten that Tim Kaine was Hillary’s running mate? What’s he ever done for Virginia?
Democrats must defend 24 senate seats while Republicans defend only 9 and Independents have 2 seats to defend.
Of course there will be surprises in November, there always are. Much depends on the popularity of President Trump at that time and the Democrats’ anger motivating their turnout. How long can they stay so angry?
For the school year 2016-2017 the University of Virginia paid Professor Larry Sabato $404,000. Your tax dollars at work.
