Since my office constantly looks for opportunities to gamble, we have a small pool about the electoral college results. Just for fun, here’s my best guess on how tonight is going to go:

Electoral tally: Obama 349, McCain 189, with Virginia, Ohio, and Florida the most notable states going from red to blue.

Senate: Look for the Democrats to pick up at least eight seats – Alaska, Colorado, Minnesota, New Hampshire, New Mexico, North Carolina, Oregon, and Virginia.

House: The Democrats will gain as many as 20 seats, but look for an all-politics-is-local moment in Pennsylvania’s 11th District, where Paul Kanjorski will fall to Hazleton Mayor Louis Barletta, largely over Barletta’s reputation for standing firm on illegal immigration.
