Saturday “expert” roundup
Saturday, Sep 30, 2006
The major punditry sites usually update their election prognostications on Friday. So, this will be a regular feature through election day. You can comment all you want, but comments won’t be visible until Monday morning, when I waive my magic wand.
Leans Democratic Ill. — Blagojevich
* Charlie Cook:
Leans Dem - Blagojevich - IL
* The Washington Post’s The Fix “prognosticator” used the Sun-Times/NBC5 outlier poll as its sole basis for analysis, so, once again, there’s no reason to put any stock into what Chris Cillizza writes about any races, gubernatorial or congressional.
Immigration has emerged as a contentious issue in this campaign. Besides the Southwest, the Midwest has been one of the few areas of the country still responding to the immigration issue.
* Charlie Cook has not updated his rankings since Sept. 20.
Leans Democratic - Ill. 8 — Bean
Leans Democratic - Ill. 17 — Evans (open seat)
