How many seats will Democrats pick up in the U.S. House of Representatives?
How many new Democrats will be in the U.S. Senate? Enough to regain control of that club?
Our best guesses, based on too much reading:
•House goes to the Dems, 235-200.
•Senate splits 50-50. Claire McCaskill wins, 51-48. She gets 40.2 percent of the vote in Greene County.
In state issues:
•Missouri's Amendment 2 -- the stem-cell issue -- passes, 54-46.
•Amendment 3, the smoking tax, wins approval with a similar margin.
•The minimum-wage increase passes with 63 percent of the vote.
