U.S. House Special Elections

I always predict the results of all U.S. House races, and currently there are three vacancies in Congress. The first of these races will be decided this upcoming Tuesday, but I might as well go ahead and predict the three currently scheduled special elections.


2. (vacant upon the resignation of Jesse Jackson Jr.- D)
won by Obama with 81% of the vote

Safe D

8. (vacant upon the resignation of Jo Ann Emerson-R)
won by Romney with 66% of the vote

Likely R
South Carolina

1. (vacant upon U.S. Senate appointment of Tim Scott-R)
won by Romney with 58% of vote

Leans R
