Polling a few days ago, moved Washington to Leans Democratic from Toss-Up.

Current projections suggest that the Democrats would hold 50 seats after Election Day while the Republicans would hold 45. Five states are in the Toss-Up category (CaliforniaColoradoIllinoisNevada, and Wisconsin). All five Toss-Ups are seats currently held by Democrats.

Republicans have the edge in four Democratic-held Senate seats–ArkansasIndianaNorth Dakota, and Pennsylvania.

At the moment, no Republican-held seats appear headed for the Democratic column.

Note: If the GOP is to retake the U.S. Senate this in 2010, it must net 10 Senate seats.
