The overall dynamic favors Republicans, who look poised to maintain their hold on the House. More Democrats than Republicans have retired in districts where they were endangered, and more Republicans benefited from the decennial redistricting, leaving the Democrats with too small a cushion of Teflon incumbents as they try to regain a majority in the House.

Of the 80 races viewed as most competitive by The New York Times, based on polls and interviews with independent analysts, 32 are leaning Republican, 23 are leaning Democratic and 25 are tossups.

I see the corporate slight of hand is working. Yeah 100% of businesses out there give to the Republicans. Keep believing that.

It looks like the Dems will pick up around 10 seats total, but the pubs/corporatists will hold the house. Calie and Illy will help on the Dem side but the gerry mandered districts and show me your papers crap in other states will be enough to keep them in power.

2014 will be more interesting with Ohio passing a fair district amendment where a 3rd part redraws the lines instead of the state controlled house. Also when the economy recovering it should then swing to the Dems.
