Question about the House distribution now

I'm really confused and could use your help. I've tried google but I can't tell if the House distribution I'm seeing is updated or not.

Now that some of the California results have wrapped up are there any others left? What's the updated distribution in the House? Just trying to see how many gains were made and how many Republican votes are needed to pass things.

Thanks in advance!

1. Does anybody know what we're at now?

Has everything been decided now?

2. This is the current map.

The House, as far as I know, does everything by simple majority vote. The Republicans kept their majority thanks mostly to the last round of gerrymandering, though they will end up losing between 1 and 9 net seats.

3. It'll be in the neighborhood

of 235-200 or 236-199 in favor of the bad guys. We'll probably have a net gain of six seats.

218 is all that's needed for house votes. I don't think you'll see upwards of 20 Repigs who'll vote for anything Obama wants so gridlock will persist.
