Readers may recall my earlier set of predictions concerning the US elections. These predictions were:
1. Harry Reid will retain his US Senate seat. (He did!)
2. Christine O'Donnell will be unsuccessful in her run to join the US Senate. (She was!)
3. The Republicans will *not* gain control of the US Senate. (They did not!)
4. The Republicans will score a very narrow majority in the US House of Representatives, much less than predicted.
Let me comment more on point 4. While the Republicans did score a big victory, it was less than many had predicted. Their majority in the House of Representatives from January 2011 will be workable, but not as large as many suspected. Plus, it is also worth noting that about half of the Palin/Tea Party supported candidates lost their elections: I suspect this surprised many as well (but not me).
I score my predictions as about 3.75. Don't ask me to predict an Obama second term quite yet, although I remain very optimistic.
