Best Case/Worst Case for November 7

The astute political blog from ABC News, The Note, has a great summary up today of the best and worst-case scenarios for both parties, and what each needs to do before November 7.

Here’s their quick summary at the top:

“The back-of-the-envelope best case for Republicans is holding the House and Senate — losing a net 12 seats in the House (and fortifying their majority with some party switchers) and a net 2 seats in the Senate.

“The back-of-the-envelope best case for Democrats is winning control of both chambers — taking between 30-43 Republican-held House seats and 6 Republican-held Senate seats, and not losing a single Democratic seat in either chamber.”
