Election 2010: Republicans Pick Up 8 Senate Seats?

According to Real Clear Politics and their amalgamation of all the polling data across the country, if the election were held today the Republicans would pick up 8 Senate seats and trim the Democratic majority to 51-49.

Looking at their map, I think they are probably right in that it looks unlikely that Republicans will recapture the Senate, since of the remaining Democratic leaning states there would be an uphill fight to turn them Republican (although I think California and Wisconsin are possibilities). But cutting significantly into the Democratic majority would still be a tremendous victory for them.
