    Why Democrats can't win back the House

    Lots of interesting data, including that low turnout and low approval will hurt the Dems in the senate as well. What this means is that even if the Republicans somehow massively fail (unlikely), things will remain unchanged. Its a push worst case, essentially-and election day is just around the corner.

    However, I think the Republicans will win the senate as well, with only 5 seats needed. It will be interesting watching the lamer duck Obama quack like the affleck duck.
    Only reason that the Republicans will "win" is that they have gerrymandered districts so massively.

    The idiom "red herring" is used to refer to something that misleads or distracts from the relevant or important issue.[1] It may be either a logical fallacy or a literary device that leads readers or characters towards a false conclusion. A red herring might be intentionally used, such as in mystery fiction or as part of a rhetorical strategy (e.g. in politics), or it could be inadvertently used during argumentation as a result of poor logic. Red herring - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    Try hard, kobie-since when does discussing equal impeachment? By this logic Bush was impeached by your fellow lefties.

    Do you deny that this is the fact.. that the GOP had gerrymandered so many districts that it secures them a majority in Congress?

    ELECTION MATH BODES WELL FOR HOUSE REPUBLICANS

    So instead of an incompetent, corrupt, worse-then-useless, spend-happy Democrat House.

    There could be an incompetent, corrupt, worse-then-useless, spend-happy Republican House.

    Yippee.

    I think we will retain our majority in the House and take the Senate barring any catastrophes between now and November. What concerns me is the electoral math for 2016 which doesn't seem very good for us and our slate of would be candidates.

    It will be a mandate. Just buckets of hope and change.
