Because she said so

Elizabeth Dole says Republicans will retain control of the Senate:

“I am not making predictions on how many seats we end up with, but we will hold the majority,” Dole, R-N.C., said during an hourlong luncheon yesterday at the National Press Club….

Dole pointed to several seats currently held by Democrats – including those in Maryland and New Jersey – that she believes that the Republicans are likely to pick up. “I am sure they never could have imagined they’d be fighting to retain seats like these, but because of our outstanding challengers that’s the reality,” she said. “We feel very good about these opportunities, and certainly national Democratic money going into these states is money that is not attacking our incumbents.”
