Race Analysis

10/27/10 -- A Dingell has represented this district since the 1930s, but some polling suggests that could be about to change.  One Democratic pollster has Dingell trailing his opponent, while an independent pollster has him with a comfortable lead.  Our bet is that Dingell has the closest race of his career, but anything can happen here.
