I hope Brown wins in Ohio but I thought he did a poor job on Meet the Press!

Wow. The last 6 polls have Brown ahead.

Speaking of the MPT debate, it can't be good news for the GOP if Russert is asking Ohio Senate candidates about the Foley scandal.

I didn't watch-how did DeWine respond?

I only caught a glimpse of it on C-Span later--the actual question was about Shays' statement that anyone in the leadership should step down if they knew. He basically tried to dodge the question by wondering aloud if they knew or not.

Brown didn't do that bad. I think it was a tossup.

I think the debate was actually even. Brown did not roll over. Debates geneally just reinforce people beliefs, not change them.

Brown is doing an amazing job. He is running as a liberal and winning.

You could run as a communist in Ohio this year and win, just so long as you're not a Republican.

true, i remember thinking Erskine Bowles was on his way to the senate this time in 04. Or Max Clelland was safe in GA and Jeanne Shaheen would win her race in 02.

On the other hand, I'm willing to say now that Santorum, Burns and DeWine will not be going back. All are losing by large margins to their challenger and have net negative approval ratings and are known quantities in their states.

Chafee Talent and Allen are in trouble.. all with high negatives and under 50 percent. but the other three are DANGEROUSLY endangered of losing their seats

New SUSA poll is showing Brown pulling wy out ahead. Seems like an outlier to me, but who knows.

I think Brown is ahead, but 14 points? I don't know about that. 6 or 7 seems more likely.

Usually SUSA polls are good, but sometimes this year it seems like they through a poll in that looks off.

Either way, this is bad, bad news for DeWine. The Democrats have, barring some disaster in the next four weeks, four seats all locked up for the pickup battle. Hopefully the DSCC is going for the kill in MO, TN, VA, and NJ right now.

"Hopefully the DSCC is going for the kill in MO, TN, VA, and NJ right now."

I'm guessing the GOP is getting ready to redefine its firewall states to VA, TN, and NJ, since they're the only three states they're not down double digits in anymore.
