Political guru Larry Sabato is not ready to change his Crystal Ball projection of +47 Republican net House seats, according to a centerforpolitics.org report
. "We made this prediction prior to Labor Day, and we were the first to say definitively that, in our estimate, the new House would be controlled by the GOP. At the time, our number startled many, though it now seems less surprising with just 19 days to go in the campaign," the University of Virginia professor noted.
Nonetheless, Sabato pledges that he will tweak his House number in the final days of the campaign. "If we were to do so today, we would expand the GOP gains by single-digits."
There is already a tweak concerning the Senate projections. "The Democrats still appear to have a small edge to maintain narrow control—but Republicans have the opportunity to run the table, win a net +10 seats, and gain a one-seat majority. For now, we are raising (by one seat) the likely Republican Senate gain, from +7-8 to +8-9."
