With 6 Days to Go, Democrats Try to Stop a GOP Blowout

New prognostications show Republicans easily overtaking the House next week, but Democrats are dispatching their top figures for a last round of campaigning and injecting fresh cash into the races, in an attempt to stave off a blowout.

Republicans could easily pick up 50 seats on Nov. 2, far more than the 39 needed to win the majority, according to the Hill. The newspaper's 2010 midterm election poll surveyed 17,000 likely voters in 42 toss-up districts, and the results mirror those of other recent projections.

Democrats face the potential of "a political bloodbath the size of which we haven't seen since the presidency of Franklin Delano Roosevelt," pollster Stuart Rothenberg wrote Tuesday.

Nate Silver at the New York Times projected yesterday that Republicans will gain 52 seats. "If Democrats were hoping for a late surge to improve their chances of retaining control of the House, there isn't any evidence of it yet," he wrote.

If the roles were reversed, SeeBS would be reporting “with 6 days to go, Republican face expulsion over culture of corruption”.

They should instead be running around, packing and running for the airports.

“Democrats are dispatching their top figures for a last round of campaigning and injecting fresh cash into the races”

And don’t let’s forget about the Chicago style fraud that’s going on as well.

I like it, this sounds almost like Saigon is being retaken. I'd give good money to see Pelosi clinging to the exterior of the last helicopter out.

My guess is that Pe-lousy and the Nevada Undertaker are plotting the damage they can do in the Lame Duck session after the bloodbath.

If I was Boehner, I'd be sure to have the exterminators ready to fumigate your new office before you move in next year.

Six days left, and NOW they try to stop it.

You know, momentum being what it is, I don't hold out a lot of hope for them...not "legally" that is.

I think that if I were Pelosi, I would be ensuring that my passport is in my business suit jacket and with a stack of hundreds in the other pocket. Do you get that feeling that there’s something big about to happen?

If they are smart, they will be consulting with lawyers about plea bargains.

Your premise is faulty, so I'm sorry to say that your analysis has no validity.

So many were worried about Obama starting an “October Surprise” and go figure, we’re the ones who are the surprise. The ‘surprise’ at his poll numbers, the nation being galvanized, the citizenry acting out and taking charge.

The Dims strategy never changes:

1. LIE!

2. CHEAT!

3. Repeat above.

Were I a Black Republican, I’d find that line where Dems are passing around “walkin’ around money”, thus keeping it from one of their usual paid constituents.

Democrats face the potential of "a political bloodbath the size of which we haven't seen since the presidency of Franklin Delano Roosevelt," ... as well as the added complication of not understanding the cause of this bloodbath. The usual "we couldn't get our message our effectively" will be on the top of the list for excuses. The simple fact is that the American people have received their message loud and clear.

If TheHill is projecting an easy pick up 50 seats, the closer number may be 60 or above.

I would like it if the Seinfeld 'Soup Nazi' stood in front of the Air Force Plane she uses for her personal convenience...
and then tells Pelosi No Plane for YOU!!!
