Sabato’s final Senate map: 53 R–47 D

All told, he’s predicting that the makeup of the Senate will include 47 Democrats and 53 Republicans. If that holds true, and particularly if Republicans take purple Iowa and Colorado, Democrats are going to have to do some soul searching about their message. (BTW, Sabato also has the governor’s race leaning toward Walker. And if that holds true, Alaska Republicans here certainly will have their own souls to search.) Here’s Sabato’s Senate map:
