    Current momentum projects the Republican Party will take control of the House again with a slim majority, while essentially splitting control of the Senate with the Democrats.

    A stunning reversal against the Democrat Party, and a clear rebuke of the far too liberal policies of the Obama White House and current Democrat leadership.

    It also appears quite possible that Republicans will win state governor races at an almost 2 to 1 ratio over the Democrats, once again emphasizing the shift against liberalism throughout the nation.

    2010 is proving every bit the Reset Election...

    I agree. All this poll stuff does is get people excited and set them up for disappointment.

    The Republicans have a very good chance of taking a majority in the house, but not for the reason you state, at least not exactly.

    Right now, the majority of incumbents are Democrats and Americans are "anti-incumbent".

    Americans are angry about the health care bill, NOT because health care was a bad idea, but because it was watered down. The majority of Americans wanted the same public option that Republicans supported when Republicans helped Iraq draft their constitution and included the "public option" for the people of Iraq. (Article 31).

    Historically, mid term elections have a low turnout. Republicans are motivated because they are a party that is 90% white and the vast majority have been misled into believing a dangerous "black man Muslim" who wants to destroy America has infested the White House. With only 6% of scientists admitting that they are Republican, it's pretty clear, this isn't the brightest or most educated political party. In fact, I suspect it's the most ridiculous we've had in decades.

    What could be game changers.

    Republicans coming down hard on the side of BP. Many of the states affected are "Red" states and Democrats will "drill" home the FACT that if it weren't for Obama and if it were left up to Republicans, all those people in the southern states would have "NOTHING".

    I suspect that with this disaster, a huge portion of the Republican base is finally realizing they are being dick slapped by Republican leadership and as their plump cheeks redden, they will decide, they are not fond of this treatment.

    Republican ideology may say that sacred foreign companies must be protected at all costs AND be given citizenship as well as a voice in our political process, but the reality is much more slippery and I suspect some Republicans are finally realizing how toxic this is to our society.
