In the 11 contests where Republicans are winning, several are tenuous at best. Montana has 56.8% chance of Republican victory, Indiana 63.8 and Arizona is 68.6%. Republicans are only given a 12.4% chance of taking back the Senate.
I could see that.
Maybe the GOP squeezes out one more, but depends on it Romney overperforms.
