Cook report says 30+ seat House gain for Dems

via Cook Report

That said, this is without question the worst political situation for the GOP since the Watergate disaster in 1974. I think a 30-seat gain today for Democrats is more likely to occur than a 15-seat gain, the minimum that would tip the majority. The chances of that number going higher are also strong, unless something occurs that fundamentally changes the dynamic of this election. This is what Republican strategists' nightmares look like.

A 30+ seat gain means that seats once considered longshots will flip to the Democratic challengers. It also means that there will be a few shocking suprises where Democrats will be sending incumbent Republicans to the unemployment line, or more realistically high paying lobbyist roles. This race is a lot closer than Vito wants to admit. He agrees to debates. He paying for advertising. He is attacking Harrison's proposals. He has an internal poll he commissioned that he has refused to release.

He's paying for advertising.

I saw his ugly mug on a paper placemat at the Dakota Diner a couple of nights ago. Needless to say, my wife and I turned the placemats over (who could eat staring at that!!?)
