Is a GOP Wave Coming?

Politico: "So where's the wave? This is President Obama's sixth-year-itch election. The map of states with contested Senate seats could hardly be better from the Republicans' vantage point. And the breaks this year--strong candidates, avoidance of damaging gaffes, issues such as Obamacare and immigration that stir the party base--have mainly gone the GOP's way, very unlike 2012."

"Nonetheless, the midterms are far from over. In every single one of the Crystal Ball's toss-up states, (Alaska, Arkansas, Iowa, Louisiana and North Carolina), the Republican Senate candidate has not yet opened up a real polling lead in any of them. Democratic nominees have been running hard and staying slightly ahead, or close to, their Republican foes."
