Are Senate Races Moving in One Direction?
By Stuart Rothenberg

Senate election cycles normally take one of two paths.

Either all the close races fall toward one party in a political "wave," or individual races are decided by race-specific factors, particularly the quality of the candidates, the power of incumbency and local issues.

We've had cycles when both parties have suffered a substantial number of defeats with only a minimal net change of Senate seats (1976 and 1978 are prime examples), but that's not going to happen this cycle. Republicans have only a single reasonable opportunity for a takeover this year.
