GOP Could Win 60 Senate Seats

Dick Morris takes a look at the GOP's electoral chances in 2012:
As bad news piles up for the Democrats.

I asked a top Democratic strategist if it were possible that President Obama might “pull a Lyndon Johnson” and soberly face the cameras, telling America that he has decided that the demands of partisan politics are interfering with his efforts to right our economy and that he has decided to withdraw to devote full time to our recovery.

His answer: “Yes. It’s possible. If things continue as they are and have not turned around by January, it is certainly possible.”

Just looking at Michelle Obama’s unsmiling face during her husband’s recent speech to Congress triggered an insight: These folks aren’t having fun anymore.

Obama, whose insistence on passing a healthcare law that the courts will probably throw out cost his party the House, will now cost his party the Senate too.

Indeed, it is even possible that the Republicans win 60 seats.

Currently, there are strong Republican candidates in 12 seats now held by Democrats.
Read the details here.

You have to keep in mind that Dick Morris tends to overestimate GOP results. At one point he predicted 100 seat turnover in the House in 2010. The GOP got 63, which was nothing to sneeze at, but certainly didn't run the table the way Morris was predicting.
