Pollster and election guru Nate Silver at FiveThirtyEight.com ranks the 2010 Senate races by how likely seats are to change parties. Silver says the 2010 race in North Carolina in which Republican Richard Burr is seeking reelection is the 7th most likely in the nation to flip.

Silver, like every other political observer, is waiting for Democratic Attorney General Roy Cooper to make a decision about the race.

(Cooper’s) entry would turn the race against unremarkable incumbent Richard Burr into a toss-up.

Unremarkable incumbent. It might be too kind.
