Tradesports.com, which operates trades on what you might call event futures, has seen the GOP retention of the Senate plummet to 59.3 (down 9 today) and their retention of the House has fallen to a close of 31.  This collapse of confidence (the Senate price was almost 80 just last week) still gives the GOP some hope of holding the upper chamber, but the smart money abandoned the GOP House control contract a long time ago.
