Will the Republicans win both the House and the Senate in November?
I think that there is a strong possibility of the Republicans winning huge in the upcoming elections. However, to regain the House and the Senate would require a lot of ground to make up. I do think that it is possible though.
I think the Republicans might win the house. The Senate is going to be out of their reach since they would need to win almost all of the Senate races. The elections are 3 months away, which is an eternity in politics. Things could change between now and then.
I have no idea but I sure hope NOT!! We're still trying to dig out from the king George years!!
Mid-term elections, those held halfway through a President's term, have been used throughout history to demonstrate how the population feels towards the President's performance during his first several years in office. In history, this has not been seen where a President was perceived as not performing his duties properly and their political party held the majority. Is it likely that the Republicans will take the majority in Congress? Yes it is because we have over 200 years demonstrating this phenomenon. I personally would hope that people vote for the better candidate rather than going the route that they hate Democrats because of one person.
I think winning enough seats in the Senate is going to be very tough. There are 33 seats at stake. Of those, 12 are solid Republican seats and 8 appear to be solid Democrat wins. I included California and Delaware as Democratic wins. The Republicans need to win 10 of the remaining 13 seats. Two of those, Nevada and Ketucky, the Democrat is running against a pretty radical Tea Party candidate and are slightly ahead in the polls. Three other seats, Pennsylvania, Indiana, and Wisconsin seem to be going to the Republicans at the moment. Illinois, Missouri, West Virginia, Ohio, New Hampshire, and Colorado are up for grabs. The final two seats, Alaska and Florida, will go either Republican or Independent. In Alaska's case, it won't make much difference but if Crist wins in Florida, it might. The Republican Party has not treated him nicely at all. So, the bottom line is the Republicans will have to win Florida and 5 of the 9 up for grabs seats. If they lose Florida to Crist, they then have to win 6 of the remaining 9 or like heck that Crist forgives them.
The house will be easier but I haven't a clue as to how easy. The Democrats have simply done their best to throw this election, in my humble, and sad, opinion
The house is in the bag, it's just a matter of how big the wave is.
The senate, that's a different animal. Guarantee 7 seats, but 10 is very attainable.
2 weeks and we will know !

This week in Michigan enough Tea Party delegates showed up at a Republican meeting to elect delegates to the party's nominating convention for the election in November to defeat the current Republican party chairman's bid to be elected a delegate. This strikes me as a cataclysmic event for the...

I am not saying ALL Republicans are, I am just wondering why anyone would actually stay with a party that is clearly not on the same page as most of America? Most (not all) but most who are die hard right Republicans watch Fox news. Not sure if you have noticed, they can't even get along with each...

The Republicans are poised to control The House. Pelosi's out of a job but I have a feeling that Boehner's gonna have to wrench that gavel from her skinny, talon-like hands. The Republicans won senate seats in AL, AR, FL, GA, IN, OH, OK, KY, KS, LA, MO, ND, SC, NH, SD.It's more than a...

The Ds lost their fourth special election. Some say those are Big Wins for Rs and Disaster for Ds. Other optimistic souls say each was a Win for Ds because they were close. While I tend to agree with the last statement, I won't go so far as calling it a win. Instead, I call...

Did the Republican senate ignore Americans, just to spite Obama?In the recent failure to pass new background checks for gun purchases, the Republican senate ignored the overwhelming support of the American citizens to pass this bill. This was done because they thought that a bipartisan passing of...
