Riptide Developing for Democrats

GOP pollster Glen Bolger: "Well, there are twelve states listed as 2014 lean or toss-up Senate races by Charlie Cook and his crack team at the Cook Political Report. In 2012, Mitt Romney averaged 53.3% of the vote in those twelve states while Barack Obama averaged just 44.8%. Eight of the twelve were won by Romney in a not particularly stellar year. I am using averages here because each Senate state is of equal value. Larger states do not count for more."

"While Republicans should not be measuring their drapes for the Senate majority offices just yet, key data in those lean/toss-up Senate seats from the early 2014 merge of the NBC/WSJ polling done by my business partner Bill McInturff and his Democratic counterpart Fred Yang at Hart Research serves as a measuring tape for a forecast of a Republican takeover."
