The American Maverick Predictor
Final 2014 U.S. Senate Election Forecast

This is the final prediction for the 2014 U.S. Senate battle.  First, let's review the percentage chance for Republicans or Democrats to win control of a majority of Senate seats...

86% Chance the Republicans will control the majority of the U.S. Senate
14% Chance the Democrats will control the majority of the U.S. Senate

TAM Predictor officially forecasts the Republicans will win control of the U.S. Senate.  The only caveat is the strong possibility of run-off elections in Louisiana and Georgia.  Should the run-offs occur, the number of seats may fluctuate by one or two seats.  With Louisiana's run-off in December and Georgia in early January, the balance of power may not be decided until these run-offs are final.

Now, let's make the call on the number of seats Republicans will control.  Polling indicates Republicans definitely have an edge within the closing days of the election.  Several close elections have seen a slight favor to practically all Republican candidates.  Hence, there is definite momentum heading to Election Day for the Grand Old Party.

TAM Predictor officially forecasts Republicans will win 53 seats in the U.S. Senate.  With the Democrats holding onto 47 seats.  Latest polling indicates Republicans will most likely capture 52 to 54 seats.

And, finally, TAM Predictor officially forecasts the following Top 10 Senate Races.  Predicted winner indicated by highlight....
