    that the repubs are going to kill in the elections.

    They are on the wrong side of every single issue of importance to the American people. And recklessly veering further over the bridge every single time one of them opens their piehole.

    See Jed's list for just the beginning of their wrongheadedness.

    I will continue to have high hopes for these elections until after the final results.

      The problem with being on the wrong side is that the wrong side is popular with people who can be counted on to vote. The anti-immigration, anti-intellectual, pro-religion, anti-poor-people platform is immensely appealing to a lot of people who don't seem to care that they personally are negatively affected by the policies that go along with it.

      about the major work of redistricting the largely Republican state legislatures did. This has all but ensured a Republican-controlled House for the foreseeable future. The Senate, of course, isn't affected by redistricting, but it's also not a gimme that the Dems are going to keep control. That, traditionally, the party in the White House doesn't fare well in the mid-terms doesn't help things.

      These are probably the most important midterms in memory. If the Dems lose the Senate, the next two years are going to make the last six seem like a love-in. Congress will officially go off the rails and over the cliff. God help us all if the unthinkable happens and the R's somehow gain a veto-proof Senate.
