CNN Blog Party Predictions

As Lorie noted, we’re live from the CNN Election Blog Party in Washington, DC. For the last hour I’ve been circulating the room and checking in with the bloggers in attendance to get their predictions prior to the results coming in.

Surprisingly there seems to be a general consensus in the room among the bloggers (both liberal and conservative) that Democrats will take control of the House and fall short of taking control of the Senate.

Coverage of the event is now live on CNN’s Pipeline, with occasional drop-ins on CNN’. If you want to watch, you can get a free trial subscription of CNN’s Pipeline here. Come join us online at The Situation Room Blog.
