    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.

    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.
