I don't follow American politics all that closely but I'm interested in where the RACE stands?

Democrats
Republicans

Who will win, why?

Thanks!

It is still a year away, too early to tell. You can find out who is ahead now by going to fox news, or probably any other American news site.

Agreed that t is too early to have an accurate prediction, but I'll throw my two cents in. I'm calling a Republican president and a split in the house and senate (republicans taking one, dems the other). I'm calling this because, despite the fact that Bush is highly unpopular, the Democrat controlled house and senate are even more disliked. Bush isn't running again, but those guys are. They will be taken to task for failing to meet all their elections promises and rhetoric surrounding Iraq.

Oh, go out on a limb and make a prediction. We won't laugh at you if you are wrong.

At this point I'm guessing a Hillary/Obama ticket and a Thompson/Guiliani ticket.

The Dems will then win both the house and the senate.

It's a very broad question but I think GOP will get to hold the White House for 4 more years just like they did back in 1988. American people don't really like to change their presidents during the time of war

As of right now, it does look like Hilary Clinton will win the Dems race, but the Republican race is up in the air.

Well, the Nature Boy Rick Flair is endorsing Huckabee, so I imagine that Huckabee is now the man to beat.

I mean they don't have a choice, they have to change their president. Bush can not run for a third term.
