wrong about the republicans
A lot of the blogs I read are really quite sure the 2014 midterm elections will sweep a lot of republicans out of the house and senate. Based on the publics low approval ratings for congress, it seems logical. I dearly wish it were so, but you people are stepping on rakes with this idea. Congressional gerrymandering insures only small changes in the house one way or the other until near the next census. Senate races overall do not look good for dems. Nate Silver, the best election statistician in the nation in his earliest looks at the election gives a slight advantage to the party of the rich. They may gain one or two overall, and allows it could even go red. Long way off, but I don't agree with the preemptive glee of most of my friends.
