Nate Silver, the former New York Times analyst who rose to prominence after correctly predicting every state that voted for Barack Obama in 2012, gave the Republican Party a 60 percent chance of retaking the Senate in November — a chilling prospect for Democrats who once found Silver’s predictions comforting.
Silver invited ABC’s Jonathan Karl into his office at FiveThirtyEight, his new data-driven news website that launched last Monday. The analyst broke down the GOP’s chances of picking up six seats, the amount they would need to win in order to regain a Senate majority.
West Virginia, South Dakota and Montana are all expected to flip, with polls consistently showing wide Republican leads in those states. That means the party only needs to win three more states — and many more than that remain in play.
