    Well then, that is a yes. You would change your position. Thanks for answering the poll. Now, that wasn't really so hard, was it?

    Gerrymandering included and you're STILL going to lose the house.

    Nonetheless, I still can't believe conservatives don't have the common sense to even admit the blue team is winning. Slowly sure, but still winning.

    Almost as if showing up on election day matters, huh?

    This "winning" you refer to will feel a bit more real to me when Democrats take one of the chambers of Congress.

    The hopeful aspect (for dems) of Ohio's special election is that the repubs I hear tell, not only had every repub they could convince go to Ohio and endorse the repub
    but in a district that Trump won IIRC, by 12% but also spent $40 million on this race, it is still undecided with a 1,500 votes margin or .8 %.

    This may, just not sure qualify...for a recount. Come Nov. the dems have a lot more to pull out while the repubs don't.

    LOL. Yes, I believe the "blue team" will take over the House. I also believe the Red team will pick up seats in the Senate. And, Trump is still president! Neeners, neeners. And, Republicans own 2/3's of the governorships and state legislatures so I hardly call that the blue team winning. Oh, but wait a minute. We forgot about all of that Russian meddling. So, how on Earth are Democrats going to take back the House with all of that Russian meddling?

    Actually the answer would be no (as your poll is worded), but the fact that no one can promise never to change their thinking or beliefs is what makes the question so ridiculous.

    Since the people have not been able to have a say in gun control that matters, your poll does not matter either.

    Methinks you forget how many uber partisans there are in this country (both people and politicians) who have dug their heels in and have absolutely no desire to change their opinions, ever.
