Socialist's losing

Bet on a GOP Senate Majority - Larry J. Sabato and Kyle Kondik and Geoffrey Skelley - POLITICO Magazine

It appears the socialists are going to lose the Senate. I think it is time for the Republican party to go for the throat of the Democrat party and end it once an for all. If the Democrat party wants to be a part of the process, they need to start winning elections. The democrats need to take a hard look at progressives/socialists and rid their party of them if they want to remain viable

Fortunately for the Democrats, the demographics favor the quadrennial years, so 2016 should see the Democrats retake the senate if they do lose it in 2014.
And of course, the GOP doesn't have a candidate that can come close to winning the White House.

What is the relationship between the demographics and the quadrennial years?

All your hopes on one Candidate. . Yeah, the socialist will win back the Senate..with a really popular President Obama . I cant wait to see Elizabeth Warren enter the fray for the socialists. That's going to be hilarious to watch that train wreck.

In quadrennial years, with a presidential election, turnout is higher, and high turnout favors Democrats, in the off year, turnout is lower and lower turnout favors Republicans.

The other thing to be considered in Senate elections is that these senators on the ballot were last on the ballot in 2008, which was a huge democratic wave, which means that just about any conditions other than a huge democratic wave will favor the GOP. In 2016, the senators will be from the 2010 elections, which was a Republican wave, anything less than a Republican wave will favor some Democratic pickups, and Quadrennial years are usually Democratic years, given the current demographic trends.

That would make sense, but it is always difficult to beat an incumbent, no matter how lousy they are. Looking at past elections it seems that party that doesn't have the White House gains available seats in mid-term elections.
