Quite a coincidence (election-related)

In case anyone had missed this little item:

I tell you, the headlines and press briefings just write themselves on this one...and - how serendipitous! - November 5 just happens to be the day that the Veep is scheduled to stomp all over the Sunday morning political shows...

Partly why the consensus among the "monied classes" (hedge fund managers and investment bankers and the like) currently seems to be R-controlled Senate (barely) and a toss-up in the House (the "tails" of the distribution are 12 and 18-seat pick-ups for the Dems - they need 15 to get majority, i.e. the midpoint of the "expected" range).

Separately - on the most recent "This Week" the resident pundits had unilaterally proclaimed that the Independents tend not to turn out during midterm elections - hence, all them polls about the Independents shifting to the Dems (at least in this election cycle) ought be taken with a grain of salt. Which is actually an interesting point to consider.
