“At This Pace, We’re Headed Toward A 65-70-Seat Democratic Majority In The Senate By The End Of 2010.” — Kos
On election day, as you happily float down a river of Democratic tears, you can take a little extra pleasure as you think back to this Oct 7, 2008 post by Kos,
Republicans lament 2008, but they profess hope for 2010…
….Boy, delusional to the end. As I’ve written before, the 2010 map looks even better for us, on paper, than this one did earlier this cycle.
….So off the bat, we have 13 potentially competitive GOP-held seats, and few Democratic takeovers. So no, 2010 won’t give Republicans 5-6 “easy” pickups. That’s ludicrous.
Things will be much different in 2012 and 2016 when we’re slated to play HUGE defense (defending our gains from 2006 and this year). Republicans can brag about the gains they’ll make those years because chances are they will. But 2010? Heck no. At this pace, we’re headed toward a 65-70-seat Democratic majority in the Senate by the end of 2010.
Yup, those are gaudy numbers, and it’s never wise to count your chickens before they hatch — political winds can change quickly as Republicans just found out. But assuming the current trends remain and Obama is even half-competent in the White House, we’ll have little to worry about in 2010. Our majorities should be safe for some time.
Of course, maybe Kos is right and the Democrats will ride their awesomely popular stimulus bill and Obamacare to landslide victories at the polls….oh wait, this isn’t a bizarre Joe Biden themed episode of the Twilight Zone? In that case, they’re toasty.
