Only fools make predictions

Here's your proof. For other foolishness, see here and here. Feel free to contribute in the comments.

He-didn't-ask-but-I'll-say-anyway: I think Obama wins Harris County with 52% of the vote, and I think Democrats win a majority of the county races here. What do you think?

Just to officially be on the record somewhere, I'll go higher than the 52, say 55, the Dems definitely win the majority of county races and Skelly loses by only one point.

I make no guesses on the Texas Leg. races as I haven't paid any attention to those races outside of my own. My own foolishness:

Electoral vote: Obama 368, McCain 170

Popular vote: Obama 53, McCain 46

U.S. Senate: Dems 57, GOP 43

U.S. House: Dems 250, GOP 185

Biggest Surprise, Presidential: Georgia goes for Obama. Based on African American turnout in early voting, I think there's a remarkable chance that we could poach it from the Repub column.

Electoral vote: Obama 353, McCain 185

Popular vote: Obama 54, McCain 45

U.S. Senate: Dems 57, GOP 43

U.S. House: Dems pick up net 22

Surprise Presidential - The slim margins for GOP wins in some western states that are considered "Republican base" states including Texas, Arizona, Montana, and Wyoming.

Suprise State - The US Senate race in Texas is called for Cornyn after midnight.
