189. People do stupid things in bad times. Look at Germany in the 1930's.
Obama rightfully deserves some blame, but when times are bad (and they are), a minority of people can manipulate a majority by playing on their angst.

All things considered, the GOP's victories were by small margins and they will be in trouble in 2012 when a larger electorate turns out.
