prediction I predict a pass because I'm anchoring on tuesday night. You can't pass. George will, you go first. I forgot my exact number. I guess you have a graphic here. I guess the wild card in what i projected I'm projects minnesota to go to romney. To romney the only state of the union. Mondale held it when reagan was getting 49 states.

I believe that president obama will eke it out barely. It's going to be a tight race. Very quickly 20 seconds left. Anybody see republicans taking control of the senate?
