Rasmussen Balance of Power -- Tossup

Rasmussen's latest Senate Balance of Power Report was released today. With Maria Cantwell (D) now polling with a double-digit lead, Rasmussen has moved Washington from the Leans Democratic to Democratic column. By Rasmussen's count, 49 States are in their Republican/Leans Republican tally, 45 are listed as Democratic/Leans Democratic, and six are tossups ---Tennessee, New Jersey, Rhode Island, Ohio, Missouri, and Montana. Rasmussen places Pennsylvania in the Leans Democratic category. (Rhode Island's primary is today (get the results here).) For a change in control of the Senate, the Democrats would have to win Pennsylvania (the only "Leans Dem" Republican seat), and each of the tossups.
