    Elections to the United States Senate are to be held on November 6, 2012, with 33 of the 100 seats in the Senate being contested in regular elections whose winners will serve six-year terms from January 3, 2013 until January 3, 2019. Additionally, special elections may be held to fill vacancies that occur during the 112th United States Congress.

    Currently, Democrats are expected to have 23 seats up for election, including 2 independents who caucus with the Democrats, while Republicans are expected to have only 10 seats up for election.

    Will we have repeat of 2010 Congressional Election? Will the economy, the deficit, TAXES and the repeal OBAMACARE be target issues this November?

    No, in 10' the american people gave the teabaggers a chance and are having serious buyer's remorse. They have been nothing but the extreme right wing arm of the GOP, have caused congress to have it's lowest approval in history, not to mention the teabagger's approval is in the 20's.

    Everything is looking to go dem in 12' and all we can do is pray it does so we can finally get the nation back on track.

    I don't believe the Congressional approval was wallowing in great approval ratings in 2009. The Supreme Court ruling might have energized the independents and Republican base to act. I wouldn' be so positive it can't happen again. There are 23 seats up for grabs from the Democrats.

    Liberals know this is a problem but need to deny so they feel better about themselves. Nothings changed from 2010 to favor any democrats with this law being held as constitutional. In fact it's even worse because Obama sold it as not being a tax to everyone when the opposite has to be true for it to be constitutional. Not to mention he can't run against a crazy court with a right wing agenda. And obviously his economic accomplishments are out the window. It's a real clusterfrick for the dems.

    This is why Boehner has put the repeal of Obolshevikcare up for a vote in the next few weeks.

    How many democratics in iffy districts want to go on record as being in favor of a bill that consistently polls 2:1 against?

    The problem Senate Democratic Candidates have here is they can't in good faith go back to their districts and sport the Obama spinn. The Supreme Court was right and wrong. The people will look at them like they're crazy.

    Either they will endorse the tax or they won't. With most of the population against this, they are on shaky ground. And they saw what happened to their loyal predecessors in 2010. Yeah, DNC has a problem.

    R's will have the senate and house in 12. Its possible that the Rs could reach 60 in the senate, however that's unlikely. 56 or 57 is likely.
