The Prognosticators

It's roundly anticipated that Republicans will pick up a good number of House seats this November, but opinions vary on just how many. A handful of professional political analysts maintain running prognostications of what will happen on Election Day, and, while these numbers will change many times over between now and November, we thought it'd be a good idea to put them all in one place.


So here's an early roundup of The Prognosticators, the analysts who've recently predicted how many House seats Republicans will gain. They will surely be joined by more prognosticators before all is said and done. Click on the links for articles and/pages where the predications were made.

Charlie Cook, The Cook Political Report: 32 to 42 House seats gained by Republicans

Stu Rothenberg, The Rothenberg Political Report: 28 to 33 seats gained by Republicans

Larry Sabato, Sabato's Crystal Ball/The UVA Center for Politics: 32 seats gained by Republicans
