It's Sunday. Two days until the election. Prediction time!
Here's what I see (and I am probably wrong on at least one of these):
Rell over DeStefano and Thornton by 10-15%. She will be the only bright spot for the state GOP on Tuesday night.
Lieberman over Lamont and Schlesinger by a much narrower margin than we expect, say, 3-5%. But he'll still win.
Farrell, Courtney and Murphy over Shays, Simmons and Johnson, all by less than 4%. But in each race, national trends are drawing independent voters across the lines, and away from the Republicans they've supported in the past.
In state, Democrats will continue to hold the General Assembly by a wide margin, and may even pick up a few seats in the House. Republicans have a shot at picking up a seat or two in the Senate (Caliguiri, Russo), but may lose Kissel. No radical shifts here.
The end result of all this is that the state Republican Party will find itself staring at utter oblivion by 2010. Welcome to Connect-achusetts.
Nationally, Democrats will win the House, but narrowly miss control of the Senate; and, after a brief pause to catch our collective breath, American political junkies will start obsessing about 2008. That last one is the surest bet of all.
So what do you think? What's going to happen on Tuesday?
