  •  Dems would have lost those anyway (0+ / 0-)
    so with the predicted lower D turnout Republicans are slightly favored to win.
    You're predicting that for a 50-49 Romney district.  So why wouldn't the same apply for a R+22 district or whatever Matheson's district is?  If as you say Dems will turnout in lower numbers then the very close wins by McIntyre and Matheson in 2012 will be R pickups in 2014.  If the Dems can't flip a 50-49 seat it won't matter what the fuck they do in those districts because they ain't winning jack shit.

    Given the choice between spending resources and money competing in R+22 seats or R+1 seats which makes more sense and which is a better get for Dems?  The answer is so obvious it hurts.
