    The CNN 100 doesn't make much sense.
    What you've published is nothing but a big bunch of gibberish.
    Why doesn't Robert Yoon take some time to write a decent article and stop this stupidity?
    Yoon must be scared to admit that the Dems are going to lose big time!
    He just tosses out these ridiculous numbers and names that mean Absolutely Nothing!

    Your polls are worthless because your methodologies are outdated. Even if election results turn out to be similar in some ways to your predictions, a more scientifically rigorous analysis would probably conclude that your predictions were just lucky guesses. Yes, the country is undergoing some important demographic and sociological changes but your traditional polling methods don't measure these changes accurately. Therefore, the whole premise of this article is bogus.

    I have been worried sick about the states that apparently intend to vote in one of these "Tea Party wonders" because if they do , the people of the that state will pay for it dearly. R.PAUL, O 'DONNELL , ANGLE, MILLER are all part of the Repubs. and if you were to really study up on what they stand for , you would find that they stand for dismanteling the United States as we know it. They talk of dumping S.S., getting rid of Medicare,banishing the education system, ad infinitum. All they want to do is destroy everything we had before the Reub. party gave us 8 years of distruction.IF THE REST OF US GO DOWN, SO WILL YOU.. THEN WHAT WILL YOU DO?, WHERE WILL YOU TURN? THERE WON'T BE ANYBODY HERE TO HELP YOU? THIS IS NO JOKE, THIS IS DEADLY SERIOUS!!!!!!! THINK BEFORE YOU VOTE!!!!!!
