@cameronconner you are right about one thing, the Republicans and Democrats are not able to work together on anything. In my opinion, Republicans feel that government shouldn’t function if their party isn’t in power. Literally nothing has been able to get done with the Republicans in the house blocking Democrat initiatives.
The polling data seems to be showing Republicans favored to take the Senate. However those races are very close and if Democrats are more efficient in getting their base out to vote it could be a very good night for the Dems.
We also have to look to 2016. It looks like the Democrat is going to take the governorship in Florida, a true swing state. If the Republicans are unable to win in Flordia during this midterm election, when Democrats are considered to be more unpopular, it is more likely that Democrats will win the state in two years again and keep the Presidency. Remember, while congressional races are important. The most important races to watch in order to look towards 2016 are the state wide elections, governor races and senate races.
