I think you are going to start seeing this more and more in bluer states; incumbent dems dropping out and others stepping up.

Kind of wierd, having resided in both CT and Mass, that the Democratic candidate in CT is way ahead and in Mass is so close. CT has been the more Republican of the two. CT, until 2006 and 2008 had 3 republicans in the House. Mass. hasn't had one in about 12 years.

I agree you may see more incumbent dems dropping out but the problem is are they going to be able to recruit a good enough candidate to fill the spot.

We are seeing with Harry Reid right now if he were to step down any other Dems still don't poll over 40. Combine that with the red wave which is now undoubtedly coming and they're faced with the same problems the GOP had in 2006.

@MikeyA: today's PPP has Oscar Goodman above 40, and tied with both Lowden and Tarkanian.
