  •  Adds up to a string of close but decisive votes (0+ / 0-)

    51-47 this year.  Perhaps we'll see a similar margin in the mid-terms, enough to cut Boehner's House majority in half while increasing the Democratic majority in the Senate by one or two seats.  53-45 in 2016 and with it very narrow control of the House.  And so on.

    The Republicans are going to go on thinking for some time that just "one more push" will get them to the promised land, because these aren't going to be blowout elections.  But the longer they keep thinking about that, the more entrenched the margins against them become.
