    Nate Silver's numbers are based on current polls. He's always revised projections as the polls change.

    Properly selling the ACA could be a big boost for the Dems as most Americans sure don't understand it's benefits... not yet. And there's plenty of other actions that could help them between now and November, despite the poor Senatorial map in 2014, as long as they aren't defeatist.

      You do realize you are talking about the Democratic party don't you? The party that ran from ACA the minute it was passed.  The party that has run from unions after using them in every election.  The party that took 5 years to deal with judicial filibusters and now won't deal with blue slips.  The party that ran from torture, spying, climate change, real Wall Street reform, a large enough stimulus to make a difference, that has been running from its heritage building modern America since at least 1980.
