The Cook Political Report Final Prediction, GOP Gain 50-60 Seats in House, 6-8 Seats in Senate



The Cook Political Report has its final predictions for the 2010 midterm elections and Charlie Cook has the GOP regaining control of the House of Representatives while the GOP will make significant gains in the Senate, but will fall short of control. The forecast for the Cook Political Report is an expectation of a gain for Republicans of 50 to 60 seats in the House and for six to eight seats in the Senate. Also, Republicans are predicted to pick up 6 to 8 governorships.

In its final forecast for the election cycle, The Cook Political Report expects a gain for Republicans of 50 to 60 seats in the House, with six to eight seats in the Senate. Below are the final outlooks and latest ratings changes.

Although Cook’s forecasts are on the conservative side many just do not know what will occur on November 2.  As Gallup stated just the other day with their 55% to 40% Generic Congressional ballot, we are in uncharted territory and the numbers could get extremely high for the GOP. More discussion at Hot Air, including Ed Morrissey’s predictions. Jim Geraghty says it could go as high as 70 in the House. Personally, if the enthusiasm gap and the Congressional Generic ballots prove to be true, it could go higher than 70.

My predictions are the GOP +68 in the House and +9 in the Senate.
