  •  One thing, and I've got to scoot. Apparently, (0+ / 0-)

    there's also some data to suggest that the trend in house races and statewide races has more to do with the overall national trend on the economy and how Americans are feeling.   If by 2014 things are nicely humming and President Obama is REALLY popular, we'll see more Dems.   Rs are in trouble right now, and you'll see this borne out over the next few mos.

    From Neocon to sane- thanks to Obama- and Kos.

      The party holding the WH almost always loses seats in the 6th year. Unless we see a repeat of the amazing GOTV effort the Obama campaign put out this year, the electorate will almost certainly be more favorable to the GOP. It won't be 2010, but unless there's a GOP scandal or the party tears itself into pieces (which could happen) & the Tea Partiers stay home, we'll probably lose ground in 2014. The only way that doesn't happen is with a lot effort on the Dem GOTV side.
