2008 Gubernatorial Outlook

By Nathan L. Gonzales

Republican prospects are actually improving in the handful of competitive gubernatorial races this cycle.

Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels (R) is in better shape than he was six months ago, while Washington is a tight race, even after four years, and North Carolina has emerged as a legitimate takeover opportunity. Republicans are still mending fences after their primary in Missouri, but still have a chance to hold that governorship.

Currently, the most likely range of outcomes in this cycle’s gubernatorial races is from D +1 to R +1.

Subscribers to the print edition get the entire issue, including race-by-race analysis and recent polling in the most competitive gubernatorial races, our updated competitive House races chart, and our first-ever handicapping of the states in the presidential race.
