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. Ive 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.
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 am sticking with my 75 seat prediction...but 90 isn’t out of the question......
I'm standing pat too.
There are too many unassailable dim districts. That could change once reapportionment occurs in 2011.
75 will definitely get me out of the doldrums.
