Not counting Ron Barber (fingers crossed) how many Congressional Seats did we pick up ...

..... nationally? I might be wrong but if it was not for all the post 2010 election Gerrymandering
I think we would have control of the house too. Look @ Ohio we went for Obama, we went for
Sen. Brown, and Dems out number Repugs by a nice margin and yet we only have 4 of the 16
Congressional seats.

Please help me w/ how many Congressional seats that the dems picked up nationally.

3. That's only 417 seats.

You're missing 18.

According to Wikipedia it was a Democrat pickup of 6 seats. New Congress will have 236 Republicans to 199 Democrats.
