Do not believe the propaganda put out by the Democrats and their shills in the MSM: the Democrats have not caught up; the races are generally not tightening; and, in fact, the GOP/tea party/conservative alliance is poised to retake both the House and Senate on Nov. 2.

Watching the broadcast TV news lately is like watching a Democratic National Committee training seminar on how to pump up a dispirited base.

Jeff Greenfield, on Katie Couric’s newscast the other night, actually dispensed advice on how the Democrats should minimize their losses!

That is not the role of the media. But of course, it has become the behavior of the media to be an adjunct of the Obama White House and the left.

We are going to win several Senate seats no one thought possible: Wisconsin and West Virginia. We are not going to win Boxer’s seat in California. We may succeed in removing Patty Murray in Washington.

I am still doubtful about Connecticut, even though the Democrat, Richard Blumenthal, has no business being a U.S. senator after repeatedly lying about his (non-existent) service in Vietnam. But he has done so many favors as state attorney general over so many years that even a lot of Republicans and independents like him. And the Republican, Linda McMahon, is of a questionable background and has given a ton of dough over the years to Democrats (a total disqualifier to me; the GOP should never nominate people who played both sides of the aisle).

We are not going to win Delaware. Christine O’Donnell is just too damaged a candidate to win.

We are poised to take out Harry Reid – and what a monumental signal that will send to D.C.!

However, two worries remain in that race: On Election Day the voters will see a tea party line on the ballot that, as of today, has another candidate on it. Will that siphon votes away from Sharron Angle? There is also a “None of the Above” line on the ballot.

If just 2 or 3 percent of anti-Reid voters park their votes on that line instead of on the Republican line, Reid could still eke out a squeaker victory.

We are not going to beat Jerry Brown. Meg Whitman has stumbled over the illegal house-keeper issue. She should have handled this much earlier on her terms, not on Gloria Allred’s.

We are going to win a ton of other governorships: Pennsylvania, Ohio, and maybe Massachusetts.

New York is a total mess. GOP candidate Carl Paladino has no business being the nominee of a major political party. He will get creamed by the awful Andrew Cuomo and we may not win the state Senate either because of Paladino, in which case we could be redistricted out of existence.

Florida is going GOP all the way.

The momentum is accelerating in the favor of the Republicans as we approach Nov. 2. This will be a historic midterm.

But do not celebrate too long. When we win Congress, we must run it properly as Obama and the MSM will blame everything on the GOP from that day forward. And everything will be then focused on Obama’s re-election.
