As we watch the battle for control of the Senate, which is really the only interesting part of the 2014 elections at this point, there are a number of factors that seem to be in play that could guarantee that we won't actually know who controls the Senate until sometime in January after Congress has actually reconvened. First on the list is the fact that so many of the races are close enough right now that they are considered toss-ups, which generally means that the polling is so close to even or within the margin of error that it's impossible to say who might actually be ahead.

The perennial question about election polls is back again, if ever it left: how far can we trust them? Should we disregard all other evidence but what the current polling of individual Senate races tells us - which is, at this writing, that if the election was held today, Republicans would gain 6 seats in the Senate to hold a narrow 51-48 majority ? As usual, a little historical perspective is in order. It is mid-September, with just over seven weeks to Election Day, and as discussed below, all the fundamental signs show that this is at least a mild Republican "wave" year.
