    Election math bodes well for house republicans

    ELECTION MATH BODES WELL FOR HOUSE REPUBLICANS-The GOP enjoys a clear advantage in holding on to - and likely growing - its majority going into the midterms.
    Democrats say they expect to make gains in the House, but Republicans have a host of built-in advantages this year, including:

    • Recently redrawn districts have resulted in fewer competitive seats.

    • Historical midterm-election-year trends indicate a limited Democratic turnout.

    • President Obama's waning popularity is part of a political climate suggesting that Democrats cannot expect a "wave" election to turn the tide in their favor.
    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.

    The Democrats have virtually no chance of winning back the House.

    Senate's pretty much a toss-up.

    The reason for that is because the democrat Klan almost NEVER votes in in the midterms...... I hate progressives but I also hate RINO's but why you think RINO's always gain seats during the midterms??? ...... I'm happy anyways because a RINO is better than a progressive er "Communist.

    The Republicans don't always gain seats during the midterms.

    2006 midterms: Democrats +31 House seats, +6 Senate seats

    "Democrat Klan"? Cute.

    Well, of course some dems are willing to run out and kill their jobs that rely on supply and demand economics, but in general - democrats er those who aren't paid to vote don't vote during the midterms have no reason to vote.

    Well, this time around there's that whole gerrymandering thing helping too.
