GOP's narrow path to deny Pelosi gavel could run through key districts offering shot to flip seats
Fox News ^ | November 4, 2018 | Paul Steinhauser

“They’ve been nervous since day one. Since I declared my candidacy in April 2017, they’ve been nervous. And it shows right now. Nancy Pelosi has spent well over half-a-million dollars in the last week to try and distort my campaign,” the Republican nominee in New Hampshire’s 1st Congressional District said Saturday...It’s one of the precious few Democrat-held seats Republicans have a chance at flipping, from blue to red. Those open races include battles for Minnesota's 8th District seat, held by a retiring Democratic incumbent; Minnesota's 1st, where incumbent Democrat Tim Walz is running for governor; and Nevada's 3rd, where incumbent Democrat Jacky Rosen is running for Senate. Minnesota's 8th, where Republican Pete Stauber faces Democrat Joe Radinovich, is considered perhaps the GOP's best shot to swipe a seat, but a strong performance in the others would give the party at least a chance to defy the odds and hold the chamber.

Republicans will widely expand their domination of the House.

Nancy will have to resign.

Jeez. Even CNN is walking back their Dem House prediction.

But Fux News? They soldier on.

Narrow? I think the GOP has several ways to maintain control of the House, despite their efforts to mess it up.

I think it will look close at first, but several rust state Ds will lose and make up for the wins the Ds have. I think Rs end up with a 10 seat majority and a 5 seat senate majority.

CNN is trying to rile up the democrat base
In reverse CNN is trying to tell the republicans to stay home, we have it in the bag

Fox is telling the democrats they have it in the bag
In reverse Fox is trying to rile up the republican base

Think about it

“Nancy will NEVER resign!”

When the Democrats lose more than two dozen House seats on Tuesday, she will be forced to resign.

Every time Pelosi opens her mouth, I increase the distance I would be willing to crawl over broken glass in the middle of a blizzard to vote against her Democrats by 10 miles.

I could probably circumvent the globe at this point.

Exactly

That is what CNN is doing, trying to repress our vote thinking we got in the bag and get the leftist vote out thinking they are losing

I agree. Even their polling is way out in left field.

I understand your worry but I wonder how many of those Dem voters were Walkaways?
