    I think, despite the intransigence of the Trump base, women and wavering mainstream GOP and independents (the Dems almost to the last one while vote against GOP) will make the difference.

    Democrats’ prospects for retaking control of the U.S. House have brightened during the past two months, although success in the November election is no sure bet, a CBS News election model released Sunday shows.

    If the election were held today, Democrats would win 222 seats in the House, up from 219 in June, according to CBS’s model, which is based on voter surveys in 57 competitive congressional districts. The estimate had a margin of error of plus or minus 11 seats.


    A party needs 218 seats to control the House, and Democrats would need to win at least 23 additional seats in the midterm elections to wrest power from Republicans. [Note the margin of error above notes that a majority is not guaranteed]
