    Without a doubt a step up. If I had to have a Democrat president Schweitzer would be near the top of my list.
    That is too bad about Joe Miller's favorability numbers, I like when outsider types breakthrough and act with no fear once they get in (like Texas' Ted Cruz). Of course Treadwell would be a safe bet. And he would most likely get more help from the other Senator of Alaska around election time.

    About the outside shot in Georgia you mentioned, there are enough good Republicans around to win that seat being vacated by Saxby Chambliss. I don't think it will be Karen Handel though, she has too much baggage now with some lies during her attempt to become Governor, and she had a few controversies since then. What I thought would have been interesting is if Newt Gingrich ran. He has baggage too of course, but I think he would be able to pull it off.

    Democrats need to not get complacent and get out and vote. Far too many Democratic voters stay home. And maybe with a little less gerrymandering, the house would more closely resemble the actual positions of the American people.

    I don't understand how there can be an option "republicans become the majority" and "republicans become the minority" in the same poll. Options should have been republicans control congress, republicans control house democratss control senate, democrats control house republicans control senate, democrats control congress.

    True, it could be written a few different ways for sure and perhaps something clearer. Maybe next time. However given these options, it is true that the results of the 2014 election could change the majorities and minorities of Congress (Congress is made up of both the House of Representatives and the Senate).
