    I think it highly unlikely (not impossible) that the GOP will pick up a Senate majority... 48, 49 max... I don't see 50 and because Biden is the Veep, the GOP would need 51.

    I think the GOP should focus on the House because there is a very realistic chance of gaining the majority there...

Republicans did not hold control of the Congress in the 2002 election they gained control of Congress in 2002.
    Thanks for reminding me... forgot about that whole fiasco... I think it kind of was in the background in the aftermath of the Gore silliness in Florida...

    Some things are obvious, and there is precedent for the obvious: 1994.
    For those that have dificulty connecting the dots, or not wanting to see the obvious... the facts will dribble in. You can be sure the Journolists won't be eager to promote the enemy... So...

    The expected groundswell is driven by the composition of voter turnout, which at about 40 per cent would be significantly lower than the 63 per cent that brought Mr Obama to power. According to polls, likely Republican voters are twice as motivated to vote as Democrats.

    The University of Virginia’s widely monitored Crystal Ball will on Wednesday forecast sweeping setbacks on Capitol Hill and the loss of a clutch of state governorships on November 2.

    It follows a Gallup poll that showed the Republicans with a 10 percentage point lead over the Democrats – the widest margin in 68 years. Separately, a University of Buffalo paper has predicted a 51-seat gain for Republicans in November.

    The Democrats have a 39-seat majority in the House of Representatives. Many believe Democratic control of the Senate is also at risk.

    Of course, the ultimate poll will be taken in November.

    The bads news is trickling out. As stated, both chambers are now in play.
    This shift in perception — from Obama as political savior to Obama as creature of Washington — can be seen elsewhere. When Obama arrived in office in January '09, his Gallup approval rating stood at 68%, a high for a newly elected leader not seen since John Kennedy in 1961. Today Obama's job approval has been hovering in the mid-40s, which means that at least 1 in 4 Americans has changed his or her mind. The plunge has been particularly dramatic among independents, whites and those under age 30. With midterm elections just nine weeks off, instead of the generational transformation some Democrats predicted after 2008, the President's party teeters on the brink of a broad setback in November, including the possible loss of both houses of Congress. By a 10-point margin, people say they will vote for Republicans over Democrats in Congress, the largest such gap ever recorded by Gallup.

    Remember all the Dems that were cackling that the Republican party was about to go extinct just a couple years ago ??

    The extinction shoe might be on the other foot soon.

    That extinction talk never ends. People talked about the end of the Democratic Party in 1994. Neither party is going away. There are cycles. Were one of the parties actually any good, it might threaten the other party into non-existance, but as both parties are corrupt cesspools, that isn't going to happen.

    it all starts at the top, naturally

    true, but it will come back different

    very large elements of THIS particular party in power ARE indeed dead for a long, long time...

    Thanks Obi. We couldn't have done it without you.

    Wow, I'm impressed. Missouri just voted away their right to have health insurance cover pre-existing conditions and children and they gave the insurance companies the right to charge whatever they want. Kewl.

    Better buy your insurance while you're young and don't let those expensive premiums lapse if you live in Missouri because it doesn't look you'll be able to afford it when you get older, if you can get it all.

    For instance, it is lawful for a Missouri health insurance policy to contain a provision that permanently excludes coverage for conditions you had prior to the beginning of your policy, which are called pre-existing conditions.....

    Apparently, the only people objecting to Prop C in Missouri were the hospitals....

    Proposition C faced little organized opposition, although the Missouri Hospital Association mounted a mailer campaign opposing the ballot issue in the last couple of weeks. The hospital association, which spent more than $300,000 in the losing effort, said that without the new federal law, those who don't have insurance will cause health care providers and other taxpayers to have higher costs.

    Hope you enjoy paying for other peoples health care, Missouri. Insurance companies must be laughing all the way to the bank on that one.
