Draggingtree Posted August 6, 2014 Share Posted August 6, 2014 Washington Post: Is the race for control of the Senate over already? By Dan Balz August 6 at 6:00 AM The midterm contest is almost over and the Republicans are winning. That, at least, is the impression left by some modelers and other analysts. But three months out from November, many questions are still left to be answered before the ballots can be counted. For politics aficionados, half a dozen outlets are offering assessments and predictions. Three use traditional methods (analysis of polls and reporting) of handicapping — the Cook Political Report, the Rothenberg Political Report and Larry Sabato’s Crystal Ball. Three others employ modeling to develop probability assessments. They include Nate Silver’s FiveThirtyEight.com (the best known of the group), The Washington Post’s Monkey Cage and the New York Times’s Upshot.
