Real Clear Politics Updates Republican Senate Projection from 52 to 53

This is a small indicator but currently Real Clear Politics have updated their projection of the post election Senate Republican count as 53 seats.

This lists seat pic-ups in Arizona, Nevada and Georgia and holds in Pennsylvania, Wisconsin and North Carolina.  What I notice is that in several of these races the poll averages favor the Democrat candidates.  This must mean that someone at RCP thinks there is either a problem with the polls artificially favoring the Dems or that the dynamics of the race are rapidly shifting away from them.

A projection like this that basically shows the Republicans running the table seems kind of over optimistic but maybe that’s just my hard knocks pessimism shining through.  So this is a little thing but it got a smile out of me today.
