Renowned political analyst Larry J. Sabato once again brings together the nation's most insightful analysts and astute observers of American politics to examine thePendulum Swingmidterm elections of 2010. Pendulum Swingdissects the political momentum that is leading to significant projected Republican gains in the Senate, House, and Governorships. While many political observers only offer a high-level overview of the events and factors that shape the outcome, Dr. Sabato and his team of contributing experts delve into the overlooked details to offer unique analysis from several different angles.
Larry J. Sabato is founder and director of the Center for Politics at the University of Virginia. A renowned political prognosticator, he correctly projected–as early as July 2008–that Barack Obama would win the Presidency in a near-landslide. He predicted a 364-174 margin in the Electoral College, just one vote away from the final tally of 365-173, and forecasted President Obama's exact 53% popular vote margin. He accurately predicted 99% of Senate, House, and Governor winners in both the 2006 and 2008 elections.
