Democrats are now 'soft favorites' to take the House, according to an analysis by University of Virginia political scientist Larry Sabato and his team.

The latest periodic installment of Sabato's 'Crystal Ball' newsletter handicapping congressional the elections shifts 17 House races in the direction of Democrats.

Race-by-race rankings are moving several GOP incumbents into the tossup category. Among them are Texas Rep. John Culberson, Illinois Rep. Peter Roskam, Indiana Rep. Steve Chabot, and Iowa Rep. David Young.

For what it's worth, Larry predicted in 2016 Hillary would win with 322 electoral votes.

Larry's Little Confirmation Bias.

We're going to have to treat this election like it's a war.

Because if the Left is successful, it's gonna be a REAL war.

I doubt it but we shall see what we see. A lot can happen between now and election day in Nov.

I wouldn’t put it past the deep state and oligarchs around the world to do something to sabotage President Trump. It is their motus operandi after all. They could make the economy take a nose dive, interest rates to skyrocket, the housing market to burst and go into free-fall, or cause the oil prices to skyrocket.

No low is too low for the left or GOPe. They are practically one and the same nowadays.

White House party frequently loses seats in the midterm. The way things have been going with special elections and the way public opinion sways it's not crazy to think we might lose the house. Granted it's pretty far out but the dems are on the ground now, going door-to-door now, and fundraising heavily now. We need to ramp up or risk a bad night come November.

Maxine Waters as head of the Finance Committee? No thanks.

No matter what anyone predicts: we need to show up in November. That’s what matters.

From other info on the interned, I don’t believe Larry. However, we need to get serious and win this midterm, big time! This could be the second most important election in our lifetime, the first put Donald Trump in the WH. Beat the bushes, make it happen!!!

Here we go! Keep an eye on the betting sites. There’s gold in any market where truth is not the coin of the realm.

Republicans need to be running scared. Trump needs to get on the permanent campaign trail yesterday.

We’re not talking about a successful pollster here. More of a failed push pollster.

If they impeach, then they will feel the wrath of President Pence.

Americans are beginning to figure out who the Commiecrats are and what they want for America. It will be rejected big time in November. I’m so sick of overpaid, overrated, and jaded Larry Sabato. This guy is like Nate Silver. Both of them couldn’t pick the winner of a one horse race!
