    Over the next few weeks I'm going to try to find out if there is any effort to get such measures on the ballot in Ohio and Michigan, but it's hard to find that kind of stuff out without it being up and running yet. I really don't see how we retake the house under the current lines since at this point we're likely to have divided government until 2019. 2020 is a presidential year and it's unlikely we'll have a massive wave then unless Republicans really screw things up, and waiting 8 years is just ridiculous anyway when we're bound to have last year's situation repeat where Dems win the popular vote, polling shows us leading the generic ballot by 3, yet we don't even come close to taking the house.
