How Are We Going To Mitigate Our Losses In The Mid Terms?
Advertisements [?]
Edited on Sat Apr-10-10 07:59 AM by DemocratSinceBirth
It seems that it's inevitable that we are going to lose seats as some of our gains in 06 and 08 have come from states and districts that are red or purple. I can remember how painful our losses in 80 and 94 were and would hate to see them repeated again.

Here is some historical date that should give some of us pause:


Since World War II, the presidents party has lost House seats in 14 of 16 midterm elections with an average loss of 23 seats

I'd like to see a breakdown of the current state of all these races. What does Nate Silver say?
