Liberal Larry Sabato’s Crystal Ball that all of Washingdom worships, changed his forecast on the Virginia races Election Eve and predicted the state could go Republican.

Now he’s recalculating the route to Republican control of the U.S. Senate.

As such, we’re changing several Senate ratings to reflect improved odds of Republicans flipping that chamber next year. The changes are shown in Table 1:

The change in U.S. Sen. Michael Bennet’s race is significant, because Sabato gave the Virginia governor’s race the same ranking, likely Democrat, until just before Election Day.

Sabato writes:

We are also moving Sen. Michael Bennet (D-CO) from Safe Democratic to Likely Democratic. He could potentially be vulnerable if 2022 turns into a GOP mega-wave.

Sabato is a political analyst and professor of politics at the University of Virginia. 

We’re going to rank his prediction as: Please God, Yes.
