With every passing day it appears the public is ready to vote against the Democratic majority. Yet when you look at the individual races at the House level there is no reason to expect a massive change in membership. Most of the Representatives are in safe districts and/or face no real opponents. Of the 435 seats 253 are Democrat and 178 Republican. I would venture (generously at that) fewer than 80 seats are really contestable. Lets say the Republicans get 70% (Again being generous) of these seats, the new total would be 234 Republicans to 201 Democrats. This would result in committee changes and change the overall balance but it would still be a divided House.
