Election Futures Update


Slate's tracking how the futures trading sites are handicapping tonight's results.

TradeSports is producing some interesting results right now.  The site is predicting Democratic victories in Montana, Missouri, Virginia, Rhode Island, New Jersey, an Maryland.  Tennessee is the only close seat bettors are giving to the GOP.

Along with the expected Democratic pickups in Pennsylvania and Ohio, by my count that gives the Democrats control of the Senate, 51-49.  But TradeSports Senate contracts are still favoring the GOP to retain control.

Maybe they think Joe Lieberman will switch parties.
