The latests numbers are in, and Dr. Stu was called in to deliver the tough news.
"There are 36 Democratic senators that are locked in. They are not up for election," Stu said.
Of those up for reelection, nine are solidly Democrat. So Democrats have at least 45 seats locked in.
"For the Republicans, they start off with 30 seats locked in absolutely. And we have a bunch here that are in the solid Republican category. In fact, 11 of them total, including Mike Lee, by the way, in case you were in Utah and didn't know that. He's up by 30 in the most recent poll," Stu said.
So before getting to leaners and toss-ups, we've got 45 Democrats and 41 Republicans locked in.
"Okay, that's not good," Glenn said.
"It's close," Co-host Pat Gray said.
"Very close," Stu agreed.
"I don't like it like this, guys," Glenn noted.
When Dr. Stu figured in those candidates who lean left and those who lean right, what did it look like? Republicans have a solid shot at 48 seats and Democrats have a solid shot at 47 seats.
"The toss-ups are Illinois. That one right now is leaning towards the Democrats," Stu said.
There's also Pennsylvania, Nevada, New Hampshire and North Carolina.
"To get to 50 seats with a Trump presidency, you'd need two of those of the five. And to get to 51 in the Clinton presidency, you'd need three of the five," Stu sadi.
"We need three. We need three," Pat said.
"Oh, my gosh. Come on," Glenn lamented.
General Election & the Electoral College
"Now, this is important. When you give people the polls and they're like, 'Oh, Clinton is ahead.' Forget about it. It depends on the states," Glenn said.
Essentially, the general election is 50 state elections, and the winning candidate must secure 270 electoral college votes.
"So we've broken them in the same way --- solid Democrat, leaning Democrat, toss-up, leaning Republican, solid Republican," Stu said.
Stu gave 224 solid electoral votes to Democrats and 90 solid electoral votes to Republicans.
"Ninety!" Pat exclaimed.
"What?" Jeffy asked in disbelief.
"224 to 90," Stu confirmed.
Glenn, at this point, had passed out on the couch.
"You know what, if this happens, here's what I'm hoping for, I am begging the Lord that this is the lowest voter turnout of all time, or that people on both sides vote third party so one of them wins with like 25 or 30 percent so there's no mandate. If she goes in and it's a huge record turnout and she wins with a big margin, we are screwed," Glenn said. "What the hell are we doing?"
"He's not ahead in Florida. He's not ahead in North Carolina. He's not ahead in Nevada," Stu said about Trump.
"The GOP should pull all their freaking money and pour it into the Senate and the House. Seriously, what are you doing?" Glenn said.
"Call me a black rain cloud, but, again, the picture isn't terrible in the Senate. You can save the Senate," Stu said.
"Right. You've got to save the Senate and the House," Glenn agreed.
