  •  The GOP Fring (6+ / 0-)

    As Tip O'Neill once said, "All Politics is local".

    This is very true for the House of Representatives.  There are so many gerrymandered safe GOP House districts that it would take a huge shift for them to lose the House. A 7 Point National Advantage doesn't mean much in parts of Mississippi, Utah, or Wyoming.

    Considering 2014 is still a long way away, it's possible that more new Millennial Generation voters will swing the country more into the Dem column. Off year elections draw not much more than the base, unless there are some energizing local referendums or candidates.
