It’s worth looking at just how badly the conventional wisdom thinks Republicans will be annihilated on Tuesday:
Latest polls: Obama all the way!
In fact, the polls are so bad for Republicans that Reuters-Ipsos shows the Congressional vote breaking this way in key states:
Virginia: Democrats lead 46-44
Ohio: Democrats lead 47-43
Florida: Democrats lead 50-43
Colorado: Republicans lead 47-45
If these polls are to be believed, Republicans are going to be wiped out up and down the ballot.
The silver lining: If we are surprised on Tuesday, we’ll be pleasantly surprised. Hence the Churchillian title of this post.
