The University of Virginia's Center for Politics publishes an online newsletter called Sabato's Crystal Ball. On March 22, 2012, the website listed eight races in the Senate in 2012 that could have impacted the political fate of which party ended up with control in 2013.[4] The seat rated a toss-up that Sabato's Crystal Ball believed was most likely to depend on the outcome of the Presidential election in November was the Senate seat in Nevada.[4] According to the article, "the size of the Hispanic vote in Nevada come November may be more of a deciding factor in this contest than any SuperPAC."[4]
