GOP Graveyard?

Matt Drudge reports that Associated Press "test returns" (whatever those are) suggest a GOP graveyard in tomorrow's Congressional races.

UPDATE: An astute reader writes with the following:

Matt usually runs this feature every year in the run-up to election day. The "test return" is just a bulletin AP sends out over the wire to make sure it's members are aware of what the format of the election returns on the wire are going to look like. The results they report aren't based on anything other than the rich imagination of the author[s].

The folks who put it together could have just as easily shown them with a GOP landslide, but Matt likes to run these because it always reveals something about the political leanings of the folks at AP HQ.
