Raising the Ceiling of the House Projections
National 'Review Online ^ | 8.23.2010 | Jim Geraghty

Posted on 08/24/2010 6:55:08 AM PDT by Free Vulcan

Patrick Ruffini wants a new update on the overall outlook for the House.

I had a list of 99 back in May. A few races have been added since then (Bob Etheridge had not grabbed anyone by the neck back then), and the outlook has shifted a bit. You can see my May categorization here. I’ve scrapped the NFL-team comparison and just gone with a simpler explanation, while retaining that reassuring and memorable Department of Homeland Security color-coded chart theme.


TOPICS: Government; Politics
KEYWORDS: 2010; congress; election; races
The GOP is now competitive in 105 House races according to Jim Geraghty.

My candidate, Mariannette Miller Meeks in IA-02 has moved up from a secure Dem seat to a possibility of winning in a wave.

There will be an 80 to 100 seat turnover in November in the House. It will be a blowout.

That’s not enough! I want to see a 259 seat blowout (I can dream can’t I).

I've been at 75 for about 3 months now.

I'm standing pat too.

There are too many unassailable dim districts. That could change once reapportionment occurs in 2011.
