More good news. If Giannoulias can get a good turnout, he'll win this.

I think this race depends on the governor's race and the downstate vote.  If Brady wins by a nice margin, it may be enough to pull Kirk across the line.  Downstate is where Republicans must rack up big totals.  If the Tea Party is real and the grassroots are fired up, this may be the hidden secret for the Brady and Kirk.  Having said that, if the race is essentially a tie, Alexi wins.

This one's going to be a nail-biter to the end.

Do you understand that all this polling already takes the massive GOP turnout into account?

     Final polls in 2006 tended to underestimate the performance of Democratic candidates. He's merely surmising that polls will underestimate the winning side again, & gambling accordingly.

     I would have thought that they did in NH-01, no? Anyway, I do think that he is being rather overzealous, even if there is validity to his strategy.

Actually, going back and looking at it, Democrats in 2006 underperformed in Montana and Missouri, were pretty much on the mark in Tennessee, Virginia and Minnesota and slightly overperformed in Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island and Maryland.

But there was no widespread across the board increase due to unexpected turnout.

Alexi took the lead on the RCP average which made up for Rossi taking the lead in WA.

Maybe the polls have accurately reflected the turnout, but think about this.  In the Kentucky primary, Paul polled in the low 50's and high 40's in the last week.  On election day, he received 59%.  Lots of hidden support came out for him.  I think that might be the point the previous poster was making.  Not saying it will happen though.
