Readers like Democratic chances

An Inside Dope web poll recently asked, "How will Democrats fare in November?"

A full 85% felt that they'd gain a majority in the House of Representatives, with 42% predicting they'd take the house only, and an optimistic 43% feeling that the Dems would replace the Republicans as the majority in both the House and Senate.

15% were of the opinion that the Republicans would hang on to control of both chambers.

The poll gathered 93 votes total.

The Dems need to score a net gain of 15 seats in the House and 6 seats in the Senate to gain majority.

News reports today say that Herr Rove has done all his heavy-duty number crunching and "Bush's Brain" thinks the Republicans will hang on to both houses. Is he just whistling past the graveyard?

Anyone out there adventurous enough to predict some numbers? In addition to which party will emerge in the majority of the House and Senate, how many seats do you predict a party will pick up or lose?

Dem's will gain, undoubtedly, but the majority...maybe in the House, not the Senate.

Polls are nice, but when it comes time to actually voting, Dem's (in general) have not put answers on the table, just questions.

Is the public concerned about Iraq - certainly. However, Dem's have dropped the ball once they have fueled the fire with Iraq-disatisfaction...they still lose when people ask -

Can the Democrats protect me?

We will take the house and build on that but a Senate win would be sweet!
