Highly respected Larry Sabato’s Crystal Ball analyst Alan I. Abramowitz has posted his take on the predictions of a Republican sweep in November, and he believes majority control of the House is within the GOP’s grasp but not certain:
“With less than five months left until Election Day, many political commentators are asking whether this year’s midterm elections could be a reprise of 1994 when Republicans picked up 8 seats in the Senate and 54 seats in the House of Representatives to take control of both chambers for the first time in 40 years.
There is almost universal agreement that Republicans are poised to make major gains in both the House and the Senate.
And while the GOP’s chances of gaining the 10 seats needed to take control of the upper chamber appear to be remote, the 39 seats required to take back the House of Representatives may be within reach.”
