Counting down to US elections: 0 days (update 11)

Another sign that the Democrats will have trouble, even if they win the House (which they almost certainly will) is in this Michael Kinsley piece for The Guardian:

What will a Democratic House of Representatives be like? The Republicans have been painting a portrait of Democrats roasting children on a spit in the Capitol Rotunda. Hoping for a more encouraging view, I picked up A New Direction for America - a 31-page manifesto released by House Democrats in June. All I can say is, thank goodness I voted beforehand.

Howard Kurtz of the Washington Post has a neat media wrap-up of predictions, bits about events, and sample drafts of election outcome reports (not real though).

See also this post on other election outcome scenarios.

So far: the Republicans are ahead by three seats in the Senate races; the Democrats are ahead by eight in the House.
