Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Hmmm, I think 60 seats is way too optimistic.

No matter how badly the nation is going, people stick with incumbents. Never underestimate the ground game of the in-state politicos. Grabbing a red senate seat in a red state is doubly difficult when all the levels of power, Governor's mansion to voting booth, are controlled by one party.

I'd put 60 seats at a 10% chance.

Not to mention that most races tighten in the last few weeks.
