Could Republicans Actually Lose The House This November?   Leave a comment

I’m of two minds here on an article over at Crooks & Liars about a recent Public Policy Polling poll which hinted at the possibility of Republicans losing the House in November…on the one hand, given the current makeup of the House at present, the odds are long, to say the least, of Democrats’ retaking the house; most electoral projections show – at best – a wash for neither party and – at worst – the Dems’ losing seats on Election Night.

On the other hand, given how the public is slowly starting to see just how craven and politically far-out-in-right-field House Republicans are at present, it is not beyond the realm of possibility that we could see the Dems’ retake the House; quoting C & L:

The poll looked at seats currently held by Republicans in California, Colorado, Florida, Iowa, Illinois, Kentucky, Michigan, Nevada, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia and Wisconsin, and found that voters in those districts preferred a generic Democrat to the incumbent in 17 of those districts — enough to return control of the House to Democrats.

The margins are slim in most cases, it would be a statistical toss-up. But the more telling findings were items such as how many have a favorable view of the Tea Party — not very many as it turns out.(Crooks & Liars)

Translation: a lot of things would have to fall in place for this to happen but it could happen.
