If these races break exactly as PPP polling dictates, the Democratic caucus would be reduced to only 51 members. On the other hand, if the three toss-up races each brake for the Democrat instead of the Republican, the Dem caucus would be down to 54 members–still a substatial margin by historical measures.

With the race so close, it could easily come down to a few thousand votes. This means it might be a very long time before we know the winner, and, possibly, even which party holds the majority in the Senate. In Washington State, the ballot needs to only be postmarked by election day, so votes will be coming in for days after the election.
