The Scientific Activist

As I wake up this morning, I see that things have changed slightly, and I probably should have been even more optimistic last night. The Democrats and Republicans both have control of 49 seats each, and Democrats need to win the remaining two races in Virginia and Montana to gain control of the Senate. Although the results are still coming in, Democrats have an advantage of 1,170,564 to 1,162,717 in Virginia (99% of precincts reporting) and 158,068 to 153,453 in Montana (87% of precincts reporting). A Democratic takeover of both houses of Congress suddenly looks a lot more realistic.
