Battle for U S "House Outlook: Cross-Currents" Difficulty Dems face to 218
Cook Political ^ | February 10, 2012 | David Wasserman

House Editor David Wasserman writes: At the outset of Congressional primary season, the battle for the House is at cross-currents. Atmospheric indicators are suddenly looking surprisingly favorable for Democrats: a National Journal poll showed Democrats leading the generic Congressional ballot 48 percent to 37 percent, and a recent Washington Post poll put President Obama ahead of Mitt Romney, 52 percent to 43 percent.

They’re citing a faulty Washington Post poll that polled only adults, not likely or even registered voters, to make the case for the Democrats having momentum towards winning the House? Get real. And I don’t believe that generic ballot poll cited for a moment. Rasmussen has shown it either even or with a small edge for the GOP for a long time.

I see they mention my Congressman, Shuler, in the article. He got redistricted out of his seat and that means we’ll have a Republican and conservative here in WNC. Good riddance Heath!
