    It may just be that incumbents have become so rich today that they can beat back most challengers, and the districts so uncompetitive through computer-enhanced gerrymandering, and the country pretty much polarized (unlike in previous years, where a great number of conservative Dems held GOP-leaning seats and liberal Repubs held Dem-leaning seats).

    I don't think a 76-seat swing (like what happened in 1938) is even possible anymore.  There are just too many safe incumbents.
